Even more river ships for Crystal
CRYSTAL River Cruises will be operating seven vessels on the waterways of Europe by 2019, with CEO Edie Rodriguez announcing two more newbuilds during a ceremony in Germany last month. The Crystal Debussy, Crystal Bach, Crystal Ravel and Crystal Mahler are currently under construction, and at the steel cutting Rodriguez revealed two additional ships on order from the Lloyd Werft yard.
The six new ships will join Crystal Mozart, the line’s first river ship which is currently being refurbished and will debut on next month from Vienna. Features aboard Mozart will include a pop-up bar area and a retractable movie screen, with capacity for up to 158 passengers. “I think these river cruises will deliver the Crystal elegance and style like nobody else is doing it on the river. They will be really different, everything from our shore excursion options to our exclusive dining venues,” Rodriguez said.
