Best Crystal Cruise Itineraries in 2016

Crystal Cruises, the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line, brings its expertise and excellence to river cruising. Five luxury all-suite, yacht-style river vessels, built by German shipyard Lloyd Werft, are scheduled to launch late March 2017. Each will feature Crystal’s signature all-inclusive six-star service, plus a fresh approach to traditional river itineraries with generous provision of overnight stays and unique shore experiences. Destination immersion is a focus for each voyage and an on-board expert accompanies each departure. There are also destination-focused entertainment and enrichment programs.


Each river yacht has been named after a legendary composer – Mozart, Mahler, Debussy, Bach, and Ravel, reflecting their association with many of the regions featured in the itineraries. While Crystal Mozart is the only river yacht operating throughout 2016 (from July), itineraries and reservations for all five are now open through end 2018.

Among the complimentary inclusions are: premium beverages including champagne, fine wine and spirits; gratuities for shipboard staff; a butler for every suite; 24 hour wi-fi access with complimentary internet of 60 minutes per guest per day; choice of curated Crystal Adventures shore excursions in every port; complimentary culinary experience at a renowned local establishment, and complimentary airport transfers to/from the river yacht to the airport.

Crystal’s river yachts offer cruises on some of Europe’s fabled rivers such as the Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Seine and Rhône. Along the way, the cruise visits landmark cities such as Vienna and Budapest, Paris, Amsterdam and more. Cruising on these magnificent rivers, you’ll drift past castles and fortresses, abbeys, terraced vineyards, picturesque towns with half-timbered houses and window boxes brimming with colour.
