Crystal River Cruises, which launches in March 2017, has unveiled detailed plans for its collection of two Crystal river yacht vessels.

The new series of vessels will feature a yacht-like design with larger accommodation and space-to-guest ratio than any other river cruise ship, and include Crystal’s signature all-inclusive six-star service, plus a fresh approach to the traditional river itineraries and experiences.

The line’s president and CEO, Edie Rodriguez, said: “We continue to listen to what our guests and the luxury traveller want, and river cruises are what they’ve been telling us they want for some time – it’s a natural extension of the exceptional ocean cruise we have offered for the past 25 years, but more importantly, they want to experience river cruises on a luxury Crystal vessel.”

The 70-suite luxury river yachts will offer 250sq.ft guest suites with walk-in wardrobes, American king size beds and bathrooms with double vanities; two 500sq.ft Penthouse Suites with added comforts and conveniences; and spacious public areas including ‘Palm Court’ featuring a dance floor, glass-domed roof, fitness centre and spa.

Itineraries, fares and bookings will be available from December 1 and the company will dedicate a portion of each cruise to sailing along some of the most picturesque rivers in central Europe – including destinations such as France, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria.
