There are only four short months left until the inaugural sailing on board Crystal Mozart, so we thought it was perfect timing to share ten facts about Crystal River Cruises.
Read on for some river cruise inspiration…
LARGEST SUITES ON ANY EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE VESSEL
As you have come to expect, when you travel with Crystal, you travel in style, and it is no different on their five river yachts. Offering the largest luxury suites of any river vessel in Europe, whichever Crystal River Cruises itinerary you choose, you can be assured of a sumptuous, luxurious and inviting home away from home.
MICHELIN STAR LEVEL CUISINE
The Crystal River Cruises culinary experience is a celebration of dining. Lavish culinary presentations of Michelin Star-level will be enjoyed in an elegant dining room and several more intimate dining areas aboard.
COMPLIMENTARY CRYSTAL ADVENTURES
Crystal River Cruises’ slower approach to river cruising includes more overnights in port, allowing plenty of time to explore on one of their complimentary, expertly-curated shore excursions, such as the newly announced Signature event at Vienna’s Belvedere Palace. Spent at one of Europe’s most stunning baroque landmarks and a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, the evening at Belvedere Palace will give Crystal guests private access to the highlights of the palace’s astounding collections of art, including works by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka & Egon Schiele. A tour of the palace will be followed by a command concert of Viennese compositions in the Marble Hall.
COMPLIMENTARY GPS WHISPER GUIDES
Crystal River Cruises will provide complimentary GPS Whisper Guides in selected ports, designed for those who prefer independent explorations. Guests will be able to follow automated guides on foot or on one of the ship’s complimentary bicycles (where available), following pre-programmed routes designed to showcase the highlights of that day’s destination.
CULINARY EXPERIENCES ASHORE
In addition to the exceptional cuisine on board, Crystal River Cruises will also feature complimentary culinary experiences at highly renowned local establishments on selected sailings.
DESTINATION EXPERT ON ALL VOYAGES
To really learn about a region, you need to talk to an expert, which is why a Destination Expert will be present on board every Crystal River Cruises sailing. Not only will they assist with destination-focused entertainment and enrichment programmes, they will also host lectures and answer your questions.
COMPLIMENTARY FITNESS AND YOGA CLASSES
All Crystal River Yachts will include state-of-the-art gym equipment with a treadmill, stationary bicycle, elliptical trainer & Kinesis machine, as well as free weights. Mats for outdoor stretching, yoga and Pilates will also be available, with complimentary classes on offer each day.
Whether you want to keep in touch with family and friends or check your business emails, Crystal River Cruises will provide 60 minutes of complimentary Wi-Fi service each day for the duration of your voyage.
Complimentary shuttle transfers between the airport and river yacht are included in your cruise fare. Coaches will leave the main international airport every hour between 10:00am and 10:00pm on embarkation day, and will run from your river yacht back to the airport until 10:00am on disembarkation day.
