Crystal River Cruises launch a year earlier

Due to unprecedented demand, Crystal River Cruises, the new luxury river cruise company created by Crystal Cruises, is launching one year earlier than originally planned. In addition, they have ordered 2 more new river ships, bringing the total to four, and have purchased another existing luxury river vessel, the MS Mozart, so will have a fleet of 5 luxury river ships in 2017.

The German built MS Mozart is the largest river cruise vessel in Europe, and following an extensive dry dock, the newly designed vessel will be renamed “Crystal Mozart” and embark on the Danube River on 13th July 2016.

Crystal Mozart is designed to fit into the wider locks of the Danube River from Passau in Germany to Budapest in Hungary, and holds the record of being the largest river cruise vessel on European rivers, measuring 75.1 feet wide (22.9 metres), which is double the width of an average industry river boat. The 160-guest capacity Crystal Mozart has window suites of 203 square feet, deluxe suites of 215 square feet, a penthouse suite of 322 square feet and two, two-bedroom Crystal Suites of 860 square feet, the largest suite on any river vessels.

Due to its impressive width and size, the vessel’s unique features will remain, such as the public area that spans a single level and exclusive yacht-like amenities including multiple dining rooms, a wrap-around promenade, a luxurious spa and fitness centre, an indoor pool, beauty salon and library.

The Luxury Cruise Company has exclusive photos of the MS Mozart, you can view them here – MS Mozart photo album.

Crystal Mozart is named after the famous Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and will cruise on the Danube River, which passes Austria along with Germany, Slovakia, Hungary and Serbia.

Following the same principle, the two new builds cruising on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers will be named “Crystal Bach” after the German composer Johann Sebastian Bach and “Crystal Mahler” after the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler. The two new builds cruising on the Seine River and Garonne River will be named “Crystal Ravel” after the French composer Joseph Maurice Ravel and “Crystal Debussy” after the French composer Claude Debussy.

During days spent in port, Crystal River Cruises will offer guests a selection of immersive Crystal Adventures as well as launch its newest shore-side programme called Active Exploration Adventures. In addition, the Crystal Adventures experience will be enhanced by the introduction of a fleet of luxury motor coaches, offering business-class style seating, complimentary Wi-Fi and with the most knowledgeable local guides onshore

Itineraries, fares and bookings for Crystal Mozart, Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler, Crystal Ravel, and Crystal Debussy will be available on 30th November 2015 – call The Luxury Cruise Company to book on 0800 6123 354
