The first ship in the Crystal River Cruises’ fleet, the Crystal Mozart sets the tone for river cruise excellence, thanks to its spacious suites and contemporary design. Built to deliver the service and experience of its smaller counterparts, the Crystal Mozart is a 154-passenger riverboat that puts luxury traveller expectations at its core.
Fitted with spacious suites, lighter, open interior spaces and a selection of three exceptional dining options, the Crystal Mozart excels at creating a stress-free, comfortable environment to travel. With stunning interiors throughout, ranging from creative, artistic metalwork to comforting faux fireplaces, you won’t fail to be impressed by the sheer thought and love that has gone into each and every room.
All suites aboard the Crystal Mozart have been developed with comfort and luxury in mind. Each is fitted with a custom king-size bed, for ultimate relaxation, and utilises the latest tech, including iPad-controlled room settings and customisable lighting to find exactly the right mood. Beautifully decorated and presented, each suite in the range is inspired by a river colour scheme, leading to stylish and relaxing blue and grey hues.
There are four types of room available. The two-bedroom Crystal Suite offers stunningly soft and decadent Egyptian cotton linens, as well as a French balcony that opens out onto the water. The Penthouse and River Suites also enjoy luxury sheets and balcony with a single bedroom equally fitted with a 40-inch HD TV. With personal butlers available to each and every suite, all you need worry about is relaxing when inside, as all unpacking performed and arrangements made are on your behalf.
An aspect that makes a voyage aboard the Crystal Mozart so exceptional is their passion for utilising fresh, vibrant ingredients. Wherever you are in the world, the chefs take pride in delivering local delicacies from the area, using locally sourced components. This ‘farm-to-table’ mentality ensures exciting, delicious cuisine throughout your journey. As well as the main dining room, you are also able to peruse the intimate wine dinner room and snack bars, as well as take advantage of the extensive room service menu.
Although shore excursions are the focus of the river cruises, there is both daytime and evening entertainment options available. The essence of a Crystal Mozart voyage is sophistication, which translates perfectly through the jazz evenings and local dancers that perform throughout the evenings. Guests are also invited aboard to represent each country in the itinerary, giving a truly representative feel of your journey. Of course, the most popular activity among travellers is to socialise, with Cove Bar and Palm Court providing the perfect venues from which to grab and drink with friends old and new.
Thanks to its impressive size, the Crystal Mozart river boat accommodates a salon, life spa and fitness centre, giving you access throughout the day to indulgent pampering and workout spaces. From manicure and pedicure services in one of two treatments rooms, through to TechnoGym resistance machines and yoga sessions, you are sure to find an activity that both relaxes and indulges. Why not also enjoy the indoor pool area, with both hot tub and padded loungers, or the sauna and steam rooms found in both men and women’s changing rooms.
Shore Excursions are a huge part of the Crystal Mozart experience, letting you explore and experience cities and cultures in several enlightening locations. With local guides giving you insight into the history of your tour location, you can glean intimate knowledge and experience both the fantastic and the extraordinary. Included in each excursion are transport to and from the location in one of the private Crystal motor coaches redesigned for your comfort, as well as lunch or dinner at a highly renowned local establishment. There is also the possibility of small boat tours in several locations, allowing for scenic day and night tours of harder to reach places.
The Crystal Mozart has an impressive teak deck for travellers to take advantage of as they journey. Whether to walk under moonlight, jog in the sunshine or simply relax on a bench as the world passes by, it is the perfect outdoor space. The living roof herb garden is another unique and intriguing feature of the riverboat, that again gives the option of comfort during your journey.
Guest speakers are invited aboard the Crystal Mozart to give interesting talks about their specific areas of expertise, usually relevant to the destination you are visiting. These take place in the Palm court, a multipurpose space that also offers a number of big-screen televisions for sporting events and ambient piano music pre-dinner.
