Sail the European waterways aboard the most luxurious vessels cruising the waters. With top-notch service, Michelin-inspired cuisine, and the ability to tailor your cruise to your own interests, Crystal Cruises is redefining luxury cruising on European waterways with four riverboats.
The all-suite Crystal Cruises vessels—Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler, Crystal Debussy, and Crystal Ravel—include some of the largest accommodations on the European rivers. Even the Petite Suites feature king-size beds or twin beds dressed with sumptuous Egyptian cotton linens. The highlight of each suite: the expansive, panoramic balcony windows that frame the stunning European scenery as you sail by. You can expect extraordinary service, with the highest staff-to-guest ratio (at 1 to 1.6) among all the European river lines, and nimble butlers that service each room. After a day exploring the shorelines, enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres served by your butler in the private comfort of your room.
Savor the delectable cuisine on board the Crystal Cruises ships. In the Waterside restaurant, the award-winning chefs have sourced the freshest ingredients for the Michelin-inspired farm-to-table cuisine, creating masterful dishes. To accompany your meal, expert sommeliers can recommend the perfect wine. In the Vintage Room, enjoy a one-of-a-kind dinner featuring vintages of the regions explored on your journey, with menus created to showcase the nuanced flavors of the wine and food. There is also a Viennese-styled café serving custom coffees, pastries, and charcuterie during the day, and wine and tapas at night.
Take a deep dive into the history and culture of each destination with immersive shore excursions. From bike rides to walking tours, there are several different excursions to experience at each port. You can even customize your own excursion to suit your desires with your Ker & Downey designer. On board, there’s complimentary yoga on the deck, or simply find a plush seat and watch the surrounding European countryside, castles, vineyards, and villages go by with 360-degree views. Enjoy cocktails from the Vista Bar and settle into the comfortable loungers to relax and take in the sites along the river. Below deck, you’ll find the Crystal Life Spa and a fully-equipped fitness center.
The four Crystal Cruises vessels sail the European waterways on 7-, 10-, 11-, 14- and 16-day routes. The Rhine and Danube Rivers are the main focus, but select journeys include the Moselle and Main Rivers. Contact your Ker & Downey designer to discuss how to incorporate a luxury river cruise on one of the Crystal Cruises vessels into your next European journey.
Crystal Cruises sail on select dates from April to December. Children are welcome aboard.
