Crystal reveals design for Mozart river ship

Crystal Cruises has revealed the design for the first vessel in its new river fleet, the Crystal Mozart.

The ship will set sail on July 13 for its maiden voyage, a round-trip from Vienna.

The company said it will feature spacious and stylishly outfitted guest suites, public lounges and dining venues designed by London’s AD Associates and Toronto’s II by IV Design.

Crystal’s president and CEO, Edie Rodriguez, said: “The experience awaiting guests when they step aboard Crystal Mozart will be true to the superior standard of luxury for which Crystal has always been celebrated, with some additional and original offerings that will be exclusive to Crystal River Cruises.

“We’re bringing what was already a grand dame of European rivers up to the superlative Crystal level, with a modern but ‘classically Crystal’ twist.”

The ship will feature a pop-up bar area on the top Vista deck, complete with a vanishing movie screen for evening cinema, as well as a rooftop garden area.

Two custom tender boats will be available onboard for more intimate exploration of the Danube.

All suites will feature king-size beds, Nespresso machines, 40-inch flat-screen televisions and marble bathrooms.

The 158-guest capacity Crystal Mozart will have window suites of 219 square feet, deluxe suites with French Balcony of 219 square feet, penthouse suites of 330 square feet and a two-bedroom Crystal Suites of 883 square feet, the largest suite on any river vessel.

One-bedroom Penthouses and the two-bedroom Crystal Suite will feature French Balconies, walk-in closets and separate showers and oversized bathtubs. Crystal’s butler service will be available with every guest suite.

The ship will offer several dining options: Waterside, the main dining area with an indoor/outdoor setting; Palm Court, a main hub for dancing and live local entertainment; Blue, a casual indoor dining area; Bistro Mozart, which serves freshly baked pastries, fruit and snacks, plus coffee and tea; The Pantry; a self-service wine and beverage bar; and The Vintage Room, an intimate dining room for approximately a dozen guests.

“At the heart of every Crystal Experience is the genuine service and expert attention to detail our guests enjoy. With our newest vessels, we’re upping our own ante by making every possible effort to ensure these components of a Crystal holiday are unparalleled,” said Rodriguez.

The ship’s crew to guest ratio is 1:1.75 – that is, 91 crew members to Crystal Mozart’s 158 guests.

2016 fly/cruise prices for Crystal Mozart start from £2,450 per person for a 10-night cruise round trip from Vienna based on the December2 and 12 sailings.
