Crystal River Cruises Unveils New Crystal Collection Excursions

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Crystal River Cruises recently announced its new Crystal Collection excursions – culturally significant experiences for sailings along Europe’s Danube, Rhine, and Main rivers. These brand new experiences are scheduled to debut in 2018, and will focus on authentic cultural experiences for travelers. Close to 200 excursions will be available to travelers and extra excursions can be purchased at an additional cost.

The new excursions are designed to help Crystal guests have the river cruise experience of a lifetime and dive into the rich cultures of these destinations.

“Every detail of the Crystal River Cruises’ curated destination program has been revamped to focus on choices, and offer more intimate, immersive experiences that perfectly suit travelers’ preferences and properly showcase the charm and beauty of the destinations,” says Walter Littlejohn, managing director and vice president of Crystal River Cruises. “While each locale offers its own distinct ‘can’t-miss’ experiences, we recognize that every guest brings his or her own distinct style of exploration, and we strive to cater to that individuality.”

Crystal Collections are available on Crystal Mozart.

Each of these distinct excursions will highlight the unique and fascinating culture of each destination and will fall into one of five different types of experiences:

  • Personal Connections: Perfect for cruisers looking to dive into the culture of their destination. Travelers will embark on a one-of-a-kind tour hosted by local residents, artists, and experts.
  • Tantalizing Gastronomy: Ideal for cruisers who enjoy discovering destinations through food. Travelers will learn about signature local cooking styles and specialties with a variety of dining and hands-on cooking opportunities.
  • Cultural Discoveries: This is great for cruisers who enjoy sightseeing all the major cultural landmarks. Travelers will enjoy insight from expert guides into these historically and culturally significant places.
  • Exhilarating Adventures: Perfect for cruisers looking to stay active during their Crystal River cruise. Travelers will be able to participate in a variety of activities that combine historical and cultural experiences.
  • Design Your Time: Created to help guests design their own perfect vacation with a concierge service that designs private tours along with a menu of customized choices.

Many of Crystal’s river cruise destinations will offer more than a dozen choices for exploration in the ports. Here are but a few experiences guests may enjoy while on a Crystal River Cruise:

  • Educational culinary experience in Rotterdam – a well-known foodie capital!
  • A tour of Amsterdam’s greenhouses – where the famous tulips are grown.
  • A full day of exploring Salzburg from Linz.
  • A wine tasting at Schlagkamp Winery in Cochem, hosted by the owner!
  • And many, many more!

To ensure that every guest has the time of their life during these experiences, the group size is limited to no more than 15 guests and guides are available to lead tours in German, Spanish, and other languages upon request. Guests on a Crystal Collection excursion will receive transport to the sites on spacious motor coaches that include free WiFi.
