Crystal Bach is the first of four new ‘Rhine Class’ ships to be introduced by the award-winning Crystal River Cruises brand; winner of “Best River Cruise Line” by the readers of Travel + Leisure in the magazine’s 2017 World’s Best Awards.
This luxury river ship was delivered to Crystal by MV WERFTEN during the official handover ceremony in Wismar, Germany. In attendance to witness the occasion were Crystal’s CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez and several local dignitaries.
“It is a thrill to welcome Crystal Bach to the family, as she is one of the most anticipated vessels to embark on Europe’s rivers in years,” says Rodriguez. “Her design, abundant space and standard of amenities and luxury are groundbreaking in and of themselves, then, combined with the acclaimed Crystal brand of service and attention to detail, create an unprecedented experience in the river cruising industry.”
Crystal Bach is Europe’s first all-balcony and all-suite vessel, with every stateroom located above the waterline and accompanied by Crystal’s outstanding butler service. King-sized beds, Panoramic Balcony-Windows™, Nespresso coffee machines, walk-in closets and dual bathroom vanities elevate this ship to the dizziest heights of luxury.
Crystal’s farm-to-table, Michelin-inspired cuisine is offered in multiple, open-seating eateries including the elegant Waterside Restaurant, exclusive Vintage Room and the Palm Court.
The Crystal Bach will travel along the Rhine and Moselle rivers, sailing itineraries between Amsterdam and Frankfurt, and Amsterdam and Basel.
