Even more river ships for Crys­tal

Travel Bulletin - - RIVER CRUISING -

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.
