River cruise sailings along the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle are now available to book for 2021 holidays onboard Crystal River Cruises’ five luxury ships.

Crystal Bach - Danube River

Itineraries will range from seven to 16 nights, and will include 45 ports of call, dozens of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Luxury experiences offered on European river cruises

Every voyage will include an overnight stay, with many featuring double or triple overnights which will allow guests to further explore the ports, and to venture to nearby towns for a greater experience.

Walter Littlejohn, Crystal River Cruises’ vice president and managing director, said: “In 2021, more than 180 Crystal River Cruises’ departures invite the most discerning travellers to experience true luxury on Europe’s rivers – a standard unmatched by any other line.

“UNESCO-recognised old towns in Bamberg and Bruges, epicentres of art and music in Vienna and Salzburg and dramatic landscapes such as the Wachau Valley and Middle Rhine Valley add historic and natural flavour to itineraries that also feature contemporary hubs such as Düsseldorf and Basel.”

Curated on-shore experiences are available on every Crystal River Collection cruise, giving guests the chance to enhance their journey with trips to Germany’s oldest town of Trier, Beethoven’s birthplace in Bonn, the famed watermills of Amsterdam, Vienna’s musical heritage, Dusseldorf’s art and culinary scene, and much more.

Complementary Signature Events, optional elaborate excursions and exclusive dining experiences are also on offer.
