Crystal Cruises recently announced design plans for the next phase of its four newly built luxury river yachts. This announcement came as Crystal Mozart, the first of Crystal’s luxury river yachts, was christened in her home port of Vienna, Austria. The all-suite yacht will travel the Danube River.
The luxurious new vessels, set to debut next year, will have Crystal’s signature look, feel and design in public spaces, staterooms and amenities but will also feature “Crystal Differences” that will set Crystal River Cruises apart.
“Emulation has never been part of our formula for success, rather, we have enjoyed a long reputation for innovating and leading the way in luxury travel experiences,” says Crystal CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez. “Crystal River Cruises river yachts will showcase the most celebrated parts of the Crystal Experience – stylish and elegant design, creative itineraries and experiences ashore, unmatched genuine service – while also creating a brand new niche in river cruising that will appeal to the world’s most discerning travelers.”
The new builds will have a nearly identical design strategy as Crystal Mozart, but because they are smaller in size, they will have a more intimate feel.
Elegant Suites and Public Spaces
The new river yachts will offer all-suite accommodations that are located entirely above the waterline, providing spectacular and unobstructed views through the Panoramic Balcony-Windows.
All four will offer butler service in every suite with features such as plush king-size beds that face toward the Panoramic Balcony-Windows, fine Egyptian-cotton linens, walk-in closets, full-length mirrors, ETRO robes and slippers, wall-mounted flat-screen HD televisions and Nespresso machines.
Passengers can choose to dine in the elegant Waterside Restaurant, the namesake Bistro cafés and the exclusive Vintage Room, Cove Bar and Palm Court. Crystal will offer true open-seating dining, allowing guests to dine where they want, when they want and with whom they want.
Onboard amenities include a full-service spa and a separate fitness center as well as a partial indoor/outdoor pool on the aft of Crystal Bach and Crystal Mahler.
