Crystal River Cruises Sets Sail for Europe’s Christmas Markets in Style this Holiday Season

Crystal DebussyCrystal River Cruises’ holiday season sailings are officially underway, bringing guests in luxury and comfort to the most remarkable Christmas Markets and destinations that Europe has to offer.

Each of Crystal’s all-suite and all-balcony river ships, Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel are decked out with sophisticated holiday décor to welcome guests back aboard after a day of exploration.
Guests feel the joy of the holiday season as they pass brightly lit and plush Christmas trees with eye-catching ornaments, frosted wreaths adorning the walls and staircases, life-size nutcrackers that greet guests as they walk about the ship and illuminated menorahs.

Crystal River Cruises journeys to towns rich in history and tradition along Europe’s rivers, which are enhanced by the spectacle of the markets, creating a magical vacation that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. These unique voyages range from seven to 10 nights, in an intimate setting with only 106 guests aboard the all-suite, all-butler and all-balcony ships, which are true enclaves of elegance.

While 2019 voyages are sold out, those wishing to get a head start on their 2020 or 2021 holiday planning can relish in an abundance of options with the company’s Best Available Suite and Book Now Savings promotions available now through January 8 on select voyages, with fares starting at $3,499 per guest.

In 2020, Crystal River Cruises will be the youngest fleet sailing in Europe, Christmas market sailings range from seven to 10 nights and journey along the Rhine and Danube for a voyage filled with enchanting merriment.

On itineraries between Vienna, Budapest, Amsterdam, Regensburg and Basel — with overnights in all — guests can discover Linz, a European Capital of Culture, and Passau, home to the magnificent St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Guests can explore cities that are home to famed museums and quaint villages of storybook charm to experience the wonder of Europe’s legendary holiday celebrations.
