As of 2020, Crystal River Cruises will have the youngest fleet in the industry when its four-year-old Crystal Mozart departs the fleet to begin a new venture for parent company Genting Cruise Lines. 

The departure will leave four all-suite, all-balcony newbuilds – Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel – with an average age of under two years, having all launched in 2017 and 2018.

“Crystal River Cruises’ ships are not only the newest in the industry, they are the only to feature all-suite, all-balcony accommodations with every room category situated above the water line and offering Crystal’s signature personal butler service,” said Tom Wolber, president and CEO of Crystal River Cruises. “While the new ships’ itineraries vary, our guests and travel advisors will now find a uniform ship experience across the full fleet.”

At 135 metres long, Crystal’s ships offer guests a spacious river cruise experience. The vessels carry only 106 passengers, which is less than half the number on other vessels of a comparable size, meaning that the suites that are over 40% larger than the industry standard.
