Crystal River Cruises has announced more than two dozen new Crystal Getaways for three of its river ships, sailing between May and November of this year. The new collection of Getaways for the all-suite Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler, and Crystal Ravel offer multiple overnights in notable cities on six- to nine-day voyages.

The new itineraries sail along the Danube and Rhine rivers, with calls in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, Slovakia, Belgium and the Netherlands.
