                                                As Walter Littlejohn, Managing Director for Crystal River Cruises, told us,
                                                “Seventy-two percent of the people who chose to book a Crystal river cruise
                                                last year did so because of Crystal’s reputation. Normally, itinerary is the
                                                primary driver but what we found is people who are looking to do a river
                                                cruise, and are seeking a true luxury experience, know the Crystal brand and
                                                what it stands for with regards to luxury.”
                                                Crystal River Cruise guests have come to expect Michelin-inspired menus with
                                                locally-sourced fresh ingredients, butler service for every room category and
                                                more excursion options – particularly those of a higher caliber.

                                                According to Littlejohn, those new to the Crystal River Experience were
                                                “pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort and luxury we provide as it’s not
                                                something they’ve previously found on other river cruise lines.”

                                                Currently, Crystal Mozart is sailing the Danube on roundtrip cruises from
                                                Vienna, while Crystal Bach will explore the Rhine on voyages between
                                                Amsterdam and Frankfurt beginning this August. Crystal Mahler debuts in late
                                                September with Grand Europe itineraries showcasing the towns and villages
                                                along the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers.
