New Moselle Itineraries for Crystal River Cruises
Crystal Cruises is introducing new 10-day “Enchanting Moselle” river cruise itineraries aboard Crystal Bach, cruising round-trip from Amsterdam through Germany and the Netherlands, commencing 28th May 2019 through 24th December 2019.
The new river cruises feature five entirely new ports of call along the Moselle River, considered to be one of the most breathtaking stretches of river in Europe. Guests can experience world-class Rieslings and the famous vintages of the Mosel Wine Region in Bernkastel, the medieval charm and Roman ruins of Trier and the stunning architecture of Reichsburg Castle in Cochem.

New destinations to explore along the Rhine River include Bonn, Beethoven’s birthplace; Dusseldorf, the cultural and fashion hub of Germany; the historic war museums of Arnhem, Netherlands; and returning favourite, Koblenz, which offers travellers a unique perspective of the point at which the Rhine and the Moselle meet.
Overnights spent in Amsterdam and Trier afford ample time for longer trips, such as a day in nearby Luxembourg or an in-depth exploration of Holland’s art and culinary scenes.
“The new Moselle river cruises aboard Crystal Bach allow travellers to venture off the beaten path to less visited destinations of remarkable beauty and fascinating history, with the added distinction as the only Moselle River itinerary with convenient travel round-trip from Amsterdam,” says Walter Littlejohn, vice president and managing director of Crystal River Cruises. “Innovative itineraries that explore new places and offer new perspectives on longtime favourites are a hallmark of the Crystal brand. With more experiences than ever included in the Crystal River Cruises fleet, this is the ideal time to branch out into new waters and continue broadening the scope of choices for our guests.”
