Travel advisors can now book 2022 Crystal River Cruises, as the line has published the complete collection of itineraries for Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel on www.crystalcruises.com.
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 voyages are combinable for longer vacations.
So here's what's new...
Two Maiden Calls
Among the new highlights of the year are two maiden calls – in Vidin, Bulgaria and Giurgiu, Romania – on a new “Treasures of Southeast Europe” itinerary on the Danube River, as well as 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 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.”
