What we love

The Crystal River Cruises difference is all in the pace of life - slowed down itineraries, plenty of overnights in port, and leisurely hours on board to make the most of the captivating scenery. Add to that the highest crew to passenger ratio on any European river cruise vessel, with crew trained to Crystal's usual high standards, and you have a winner.

Capacity 106 Guests

Crystal Bach - Bistro

Crystal's river vessels stand out for their dining choices and style: options include the main Waterside restaurant, the private Vintage Room and the relaxed Bistro, not to mention full room service and a 24 hour pantry.


The spacious Waterside restaurant offers something most unusual on Europe's rivers - full open seating dining, with plenty of tables for two. Enjoy the ever-changing scenery over breakfast, lunch and dinner, with fantastic farm-to-table cuisine.


For tapas style bites, excellent coffees or a glass of wine, the Bistro is a light and airy Viennese-style café, great for watching the world go by or for a snack after a busy day's sightseeing.

Vintage Room

For very special menus with wine pairings, or a private dinner with friends or family, the Vintage Room offers a fantastic gourmet dining experience.

The Pantry

For a tea or coffee any time, or light bites for night owls, the Pantry is open 24 hours.

Bars and lounges

Crystal's river yachts have plenty of places where you can sit and wait for friends, review your programme, and enjoy cocktails or a nightcap.

Enjoy social evenings around the piano in Palm Court, or bask in great service as you sit at the bar. Summer evenings on deck at the pop-up bar are something special, and there are plenty of comfy loungers for soaking up the sun on scenic cruising days.

Crystal Cruises are committed to developing plans for preventing pollution, complying with worldwide environmental regulations.

Crystal's Rhine class ships have earned 'Green Award' certification, recognising that they demonstrate exceptional safety and environmental standards. Established in 1994, Green Award seeks to promote responsible environmental practices. They are decided by a panel of global maritime industry members representing both public and private entities, who adhere to the foundation's stringent evaluation protocols. These ships are diesel-electric which provides increased fuel efficiency, captains are trained to always minimise engine loads and fuel consumption, and connecting to shoreside power when in port further reduces fuel consumption.
