Crystal River Cruises' 2022 Itineraries Now Open for Booking

Collection of 155 luxury sailings along Europe’s rivers available online


MIAMI, JANUARY 22, 2020 – Luxury travelers can now book their all-inclusive 2022 Crystal River Cruises voyages aboard Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel, as the line has published the complete collection of itineraries on the Crystal website. Crystal released a preview of the itineraries on January 15, which included full details of the 155 individual sailings from seven to 10 nights along the Rhine and Danube rivers, many of which are combinable for longer vacations.


Among the new highlights of the year are two maiden calls – in Vidin, Bulgaria and Giurgiu, Romania – on a new “Treasures of Southeast Europe” Danube River itinerary; and a new “Joyous Danube” holiday sailing. Also noteworthy, are voyages along Dutch and Belgian waterways in the colorful springtime tulip season and the cooler month of July, when crowds are fewer; the decennial Floriade International Horticultural Expo outside of Amsterdam; and enriching Wine & Food Festival and Jewish Heritage themed programming. Every voyage features at least two overnight stays – some as many as four overnights – often at the beginning and/or end of the sailing, while many itineraries sail round-trip from convenient hubs like Vienna and Amsterdam.


“In response to the enthusiasm of our guests and luxury travelers around the world, we’re happy to open the complete roster of itineraries for Crystal River Cruises’ 2022 season for booking,” said Walter Littlejohn, vice president and managing director of Crystal River Cruises. “The destinations themselves are overflowing with history and charm and fascinating highlights, punctuated by Crystal’s immersive experiences and special details that bring each place to life.”


Crystal River Cruises’ 2022 itineraries start at $3,999 per person, with 2-for-1 cruise fares and Crystal’s Book Now Savings through March 4, 2020, ensuring the best fares available for those who plan ahead and book early.


Comprising the youngest fleet in the luxury cruising industry, Crystal’s new-build river vessels are the river cruising industry’s first and only all-balcony, all-suite, all-butler vessels in Europe, with every category of accommodation positioned above the water line.  All suites feature Panoramic Balcony-Windows™ and walk-in closets and dual vanity in the bathrooms are featured in most categories.


All of Crystal’s river ships feature private butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, ETRO amenities, robes and slippers, and wall-mounted flat-screen HD TVs. Additional enticing features include farm-to-table cuisine in multiple, open-seating eateries: the elegant Waterside Restaurant, namesake Bistro cafés and the exclusive Vintage Room; and the Palm Court for entertainment, enrichment presentations and sweeping views of the countryside. Crystal’s attention to detail reaches ashore, as guests are transported on the days’ adventures in luxury motor coaches equipped with complimentary water and Wi-Fi for added convenience and comfort.
