Introducing Indulgence: Crystal River Cruising

Posted October 1st, 2017

A European Crystal River Cruise is nothing less than a true indulgence.  The experience offers all the hallmarks of the legendary Crystal experience, paired with unrivalled exploration of grand European waterways.

From the moment you are welcomed aboard your five-star, all-suite Crystal river yacht, you will be absorbed in opulent splendour, surrounded by sublime sophistication and state-of-the-art amenities.  Crystal strives to provide the upmost standards of hospitality and takes pride in their personalised service; it's an experience that will introduce you to an entirely new standard of luxury travel.

An immersive itinerary through one of Europe's enchanting waterways will engulf you in refined luxury and shoot you deep into the heart and soul of charming port cities.  Take a voyage along the Danube; a river referred to by Napoleon himself as the "Queen of Europe's Rivers".  Take in rich history and idyllic serenity as you wind your way from Budapest to Vienna.  Guests will be serenaded by classical opera singers, dazed by ballet dancers and captivated by a grand Viennese orchestra performing in the grounds of Belvedere Palace; just a handful of the exclusive Crystal experiences that guests can enjoy.

Visit the masterpiece that is the Basilica of Esztergom one day then indulge in a decadent feast hosted in a medieval castle the next. Let Crystal take you through the jewels of the Rhine, one of Europe's mightiest rivers where you will wake to views over scenic German villages and Swiss cities. Your senses will explode as you discover the natural beauty of these secluded European destinations.  Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds, taste the very best of regional cuisines and be entertained by jovial local guides.

If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas, uncover some of these iconic waterway towns as they come alive to the sound of bells and the delicate fall of snowflakes.  Immerse yourself in the spicy aroma of mulled wine as you stroll the cobble stone streets of Germany's Bamberg, Miltenberg, Passau and Nuremburg.  Explore Vienna's historic Christmas Market - where the world's first festive market was held back in 1298.  Wander through the red tents in Bratislava's old market square, where locals come together to offer Christmas handicrafts and traditional treats; let the locals serenade you with carols in Budapest.  

These bold itineraries and immersive excursions are only part of the journey; while on board guests are indulged in all-inclusive service, complete with all-suite accommodation and expertly trained butlers.  These attentive staff members can accommodate even the most unusual of requests, anticipate guest's wishes and take note of particular preferences.  The on-board butlers can facilitate airport transfers, laundry services, arrange dinner reservations, luggage packing cocktail parties and the like.

Superb accommodation, acclaimed farm-to-table, Michelin-inspired cuisine and regional culinary highlights, complimentary premium beverages and 24 hour room and pantry service.  Guests can partake in a myriad of events and activities like yoga, destination-focused enrichment programs and world-class entertainment.  A Crystal River Cruise is an opportunity to unwind both your body and your mind, create treasured memories and safely return home having enjoyed the ultimate indulgence of a lifetime.
