Crystal has launched its 2022 River Cruises Atlas, a comprehensive 184-page digital guide detailing the award-winning line’s 2022 season of all-inclusive European river cruises for all-balcony Rhine Class ships Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler, and Crystal Ravel, as well as Crystal Mozart. The guide details day-by-day itineraries for destination-rich river cruises on the Danube, Rhine, Moselle and Main.
The program features two Exclusive 2022 itineraries, both aboard Crystal Mahler and operating between Amsterdam and Budapest (and vice versa); the 16-night ‘Grand Europe’ departing 21 May eastbound and 6 June westbound; and the 14-night ‘Magnificent Europe’ departing 22 June eastbound and 6 July westbound. Those voyages are priced from AU$14,716 and AU$12,075 per person twin share, respectively.
A two-page spread lays out a value comparison detailing the differences between luxury-leader Crystal and premium and contemporary river cruise lines (without mentioning names), specifically highlighting Crystal’s 2:3 crew-to-guest service ratio, intimate atmosphere, numerous tables for two in the open-seating dining venues, all suites featuring king-sized beds and personal European butler service.
Crystal’s Rhine Class fleet accommodate just 106 guests and the larger Crystal Mozart accommodates 120, making her the most spacious river ship featuring the highest crew-to-guest ratio in the industry.
The brochure features photo spreads showcasing the ships’ stylish public rooms and suites, all-inclusive amenities, and hallmarks of the Crystal River Cruises experience including locally sourced Michelin-level cuisine, multiple dining venues, 24-hour in-suite dining, unlimited fine wines, champagnes, premium spirits and beers, and more. Also detailed is the line’s expansive selection of curated inclusive and optional shoreside Destination Discoveries, Signature Events on select voyages, and optional pre- and post-cruise Extended Land Programs including one in Reims, France, the unofficial capital of the Champagne region, that features sightseeing, tastings and transfer between Paris and Reims.
