Crystal Cruises to launch on Danube River


Crystal Cruises just can’t wait to get into the river-cruise market. Instead of waiting for its new-build ships to arrive in 2017, the line has purchased an existing river ship, Mozart, that will be fully revamped and launched in July 2016. Rechristened Crystal Mozart, it will carry 160 passengers on the Danube River. Crystal claims its all-suite ships will be the most luxurious on the rivers with the largest cabins in the industry and the highest crew-to-passenger ratio.
