Crystal International Asia, in collaboration with Crystal River Cruises, has introduced its new river cruise line experience on Crystal Mozart specifically targeted at guests from across China and Asia.
The experience will provide Asian-friendly features for the growing number of Asian guests who are interested in exploring the many wonders of Europe but feel more comfortable travelling with some of the comforts of home, said the company in a statement.
Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises, and head of international sales for Genting Cruise Lines, said: “With the Asian cruise market currently enjoying unprecedented growth, our more experienced cruisers are looking for new and exciting destinations and adventures outside of local waters and Crystal Mozart is the ideal option for an intimate journey into the heart of Europe.”
Beginning March 2020, Crystal Mozart’s voyages will be anchored by the cities of Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary and will feature a variety of six-, seven- and 10-night all-inclusive itineraries on the Danube River including special Christmastime Market cruises.
Crystal Mozart features private butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, ETRO amenities, robes and slippers, and flat-screen HD TVs. Additional features include farm-to-table cuisine in multiple, open-seating eateries: the Waterside Restaurant, Bistro cafés and the Vintage Room; as well as the Palm Court for entertainment and enrichment presentations.
As part of Crystal Mozart’s new focus on the Asian traveller, in addition to immersive experiences ashore, a host of new Asian-friendly features will provide “a comforting familiarity to guests from the region”.
Dedicated English and Chinese speaking butlers will be available to serve guests while Michelin-inspired cuisine featuring international and Asian cuisine will be served onboard. Shore experiences, which will be led by professional English and Chinese language tour guides, are designed to deepen the understanding of Europe’s landscapes, historic cities and quaint villages.
A highlight of every Crystal sailing is a complimentary live musical experience that captures the essence and cultural character of the region of each voyage. These “Signature Events” combine access to a landmark venue, such as Vienna’s famed Belvedere Palace, with a musical performance.
These new features will debut on board Crystal Mozart in 2020 when she plies the waterway of the Danube River.
