Seaside Collection, owner/operator of 11 boutique properties in the Maldives and Europe, announced its expansion into river cruising via the introduction of the new travel brand "Riverside Collection".

Commencing in spring 2023, the new line will sail luxury Danube voyages aboard MS Mozart, originally designed/operated by Crystal Cruises.

Utilizing the family experience operating resorts in the Canaries, the Maldives, Germany, and Spain (Valencia), Riverside Collection aims to stand out in terms of food and beverage, excursions, service, and wellness offerings, in addition to remarkable ship and cabin layout. The service of the company will be defined not only by its crew-to-passenger ratio but by its service culture. Every suite will include a personal butler, assisting guests with all needs from reservations and trips to special requests.

Throughout her Danube journeys, trips aboard Riverside will be organized/designed by a shoreside team. On shore and onboard, the cruise line will curate wellness experiences. In addition to treatment rooms for massages and facials, the wellness center of Riverside Mozart will offer Finnish saunas & steam rooms as well as a jacuzzi and a swimming pool.

From a culinary perspective, ms Riverside Mozart boasts a wine cellar and her crew of trained sommeliers and bartenders has access to special global and regional wines. As the riverboat glides through the regions of the Danube, the cuisine evolves to offer the most local of flavors. 4 onboard restaurants, including Blue, Bistro, and Waterside, suit the tastes of every guest. Exclusive dinners are also offered in the Vintage Room, where wine selection sets the tone for the restaurant's tasting menu.
