Announcing Crystal's 2021 Worldwide Voyages - fares from $2,649!
Navigating renowned cultural landscapes — from the stunning Upper Middle Rhine to the picturesque Wachau Valley and the dramatic Iron Gates — Crystal River’s fleet of five all-suite, butler-serviced ships commands the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers in 2021. A rich and varied collection of 183 all-inclusive voyages ranging from 7 to 16 days offers travelers extraordinary choice for in-depth exploration of Europe’s most treasured destinations.
Among the more than 45 unique ports of call, dozens are designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, or gateways to cities and landmarks boasting the coveted title. Think of Amsterdam, Budapest and Vienna — each a celebrated destination explored on overnight stays. There are overland adventures to Salzburg and Český Krumlov — offered complimentary along with hundreds of other inclusive shore experiences – and discoveries of grand palaces and monuments such as the Speyer and Cologne cathedrals, Brussel’s La Grand-Place, the Old Town of Regensburg and the Mill Network at Kinderdijk-Elshout, UNESCO wonders all.
Consider, too, that each river itinerary features at least one overnight stay — many with double, and even a triple overnight in Basel, Switzerland’s cultural powerhouse. While a variety of Danube and Rhine itineraries dominate the 2021 river collection, a new “Eastern Danube Discoveries” voyage debuts with more immersive explorations in Hungary, Serbia and Croatia. Other special itineraries include springtime “Tulips & Windmills” sailings, late fall and winter voyages devoted to the region’s famed Christmas Markets, and “Enchanting Moselle” journeys exploring this charming “river less traveled.”
The distinguishing hallmark of the Crystal River Experience is undiluted excellence. Aboard ships purposefully designed for today’s most sophisticated travelers, the ambience is carefree yet luxurious, engaging yet relaxing. Fresh and welcoming, an abundant use of glass allows natural light to fill expansive spaces, creating a seamless connection to the riverscape. From service to cuisine, entertainment on board and adventure ashore, every aspect of your journey with Crystal puts the focus squarely on you.
