Crystal River Cruises unveils host of summer itineraries

Crystal River Cruises is unveiling more than two dozen new Crystal Getaways for three of its river ships, sailing between May and November of this year.

The new collection of getaways for the all-suite, all-balcony, all-butler Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel feature multiple over nights in stunning cities on six- to nine-day voyages.

“Crystal River Cruises’ hallmark is offering innovative itineraries that explore new places and long-time favourites catering to our guests’ own distinct style and length of exploration,” said Walter Littlejohn, vice president and managing director of Crystal River Cruises.

“These new Getaways, along with the full complement of voyages across the fleet, will feature the personalised service, culinary experiences, expansive all-suite design and other fine details only found with Crystal.”

The new itineraries sail along the Danube and Rhine rivers, with calls in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, Slovakia, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Guests can explore medieval fortresses and cathedrals, cobbled alleyways of charming riverside town squares, centuries of art and musical heritage and the contrasting cosmopolitan hubs of modern society that border Europe’s waterways – all while enjoying Crystal River Cruises’ award-winning standard of luxury and service.

Crystal’s new river vessels are the river cruising industry’s first and only all-balcony, all-suite, all-butler vessels in Europe, with every category of accommodation perched above the waterline.

They offer Crystal’s acclaimed butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, Panoramic Balcony-Windowsä, walk-in closets and dual vanity in the bathrooms in most categories, and wall-mounted flat-screen HD TVs.

Crystal will welcome Crystal Debussy and Crystal Ravel to the fleet this month and next, respectively, joining sister ships Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler and the line’s first river ship, Crystal Mozart.
