Crystal Mozart, the oldest ship in the Crystal River Cruises fleet, will be leaving Crystal for sister company Genting Cruise Lines at the end of 2019.
Crystal Mozart, which originally sailed as River Mozart for Peter Deilmann Cruises, had been with the Crystal fleet since 2016 and is the line’s largest ship. The vessel helped to launch Crystal’s river fleet, which has since grown to five total ships.
Now, Crystal’s fleet will consist of ships all under two years old — Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler, and Crystal Ravel — making it the youngest in the industry. All four of the ships sail with similar dimensions at 135 meters long and carry 106 guests. All four also average staterooms over 40 percent larger than the industry standard.
“Crystal River Cruises’ ships are not only the newest in the industry, they are the only to feature all-suite, all-balcony accommodations with every room category situated above the water line and offering Crystal’s signature personal butler service,” said Tom Wolber, Crystal’s president & CEO.
“While the new ships’ itineraries vary, our guests and travel advisors will now find a uniform ship experience across the full fleet.”
Any guests booked on 2020 sailings on Crystal Mozart will be transferred to similar itineraries on Crystal Mahler or Crystal Ravel.
