Fantastic cruise

| Vienna to Budapest
The entire crew were extremely friendly! Crystal Mahler was a beautiful ship inside and out.

Cruising The Danube

| Vienna/Budapest
I'm not sure if the wine selections were truly 'top shelf'.......according to the standards of people I was traveling with.

an exceptional travel experience

| Danube and Rhine 16 days
This was our first river cruise, and it exceeded our expectations. We would again sail on Crystal Mahler

Danube from Vienna to Vienna

| Danube river
A wonderful, professional and friendly staff, from room attendant, dining room, front desk, and butler.

Tremendous time

| Budapest to Amsterdam
The weather was extremely cold, never got to use the upper deck. Our stateroom was very comfortable. I missed a bathtub and a hairdresser. There was food and drink available at all times, a hot toddy was welcomed after many cold outings. Really enjoyed the cocktail lounge , the entire ship was well decorated for the holidays. Made many new friends while dining as you were seated randomly for each meal. The food was outstanding!

Inspired by the dreams of Charlemagne, Crystal Mahler embarks on the grandest of voyages along Europe’s mightiest rivers – the Rhine, Main and Danube. Traveling between Amsterdam and Budapest, prepare to explore the capital cities and quaint villages of Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.
