Crystal River Cruises, which in spring 2018 rounds out its fleet to 5 ships via the debut of Crystal Ravel and Crystal Debussy, released its 2018-2019 river cruise atlas detailing a total of 35 separate itineraries that will ply the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers.
In addition to including information on Crystal's vessels, itineraries and destinations, the atlas puts the spotlight on brand new complimentary bespoke shore trips, Signature Events, pre- and post-cruise programs.
New itineraries include a 10-day “Enchanting Moselle” cruise roundtrip from Amsterdam; 7-day cruises roundtrip from Vienna; 7-day itineraries between Linz and Budapest with optional 2-night pre- and post-cruise programs in Salzburg; 7-day “Tulip Time” itineraries visiting ports in Belgium and the Netherland; and a 7-day “Magnificent Christmas Markets” between Passau and Budapest.
In 2018, Crystal River Cruises is unveiling 200 shore excursions, 80% of which are complimentary, which focus on immersive cultural, culinary and adventurous experiences. A new option called Design Your Time, lets passengers use concierge service creating one-of-a-kind private trips.
Sites for Signature Events, available on every voyage, will include Belvedere Palace in Vienna, St Florian Monastery and Rudesheim’s Monastery Eberbach in Linz, and more. Every itinerary will include trips to Michelin-star restaurants in cities like Vienna, Basel and Budapest.
