Luxury Danube River Cruise

aboard the Crystal Mozart

hosted by Jeff Hutcheson

Czech Republic | Austria | Slovakia | Hungary

Renowned as The World's Most Luxurious River Cruise Line, Crystal River Cruises' all-suite, butler-service experiences are truly exclusive. Join us aboard the Crystal Mozart (2016), the largest and most spacious ship on Europe's rivers. We will start our trip in Prague, Czech Republic on October 29 and spend two nights at the 5* luxury Grandium Hotel. We will then take a luxury coach from Prague to Vienna to meet our exquisite river ship, the Crystal Mozart. Then, from October 31 to November 7, we will cruise from Vienna, Austria to Budapest, Hungary on the "Queen of the Danube" and experience this luxury for ourselves.

Pre-Cruise Excursion

We will start our journey in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic. On arrival, we will check-in to the Grandium Hotel, a beautiful 5* star property located in the centre of the city. The next day, we will take a Prague city tour and have some free time to explore. We will experience a welcome dinner on one of our two nights in Prague before departing for Vienna on October 31, where we will board the Crystal Mozart.

The Cruise

Extraordinary personal attention, butler service for every suite and superb, farm-to-table cuisine are among the defining characteristics of Crystal River Cruises, as are plush on-board amenities, the largest luxury suites in river cruising, expansive social spaces crowned with skylights and glass roofs, and an ambiance of boutique elegance.

An unparalleled range of all-inclusive amenities and services exceeds the expectations of the most discerning travelers. Crystal’s all-inclusive experience offers Michelin-inspired cuisine, unlimited pours of fine wines and premium spirits, all gratuities (shipboard and shoreside), daily fitness and yoga classes, unlimited Wi-Fi and use of Atlanta eBikes in select destinations. Ashore, a curated “Crystal Collection” of complimentary experiences ashore offers unmatched options for cultural enrichment and active adventure.

Crystal dining is an inspired culinary experience created by Crystal's award-winning chefs, with modern and classic menu options featuring the freshest local ingredients when available. All restaurants on the Crystal Mozart offer open seating, and provide you with a choice of venues for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Crystal river ships' on-board experience is unparalleled. You can participate in as much or as little of the offered activities and programs as they like, customizing your river cruise to your specifications. Options include health and wellness (fitness centre, daily yoga & fitness classes, swimming pool, full-service Crystal Life Spa), entertainment, and distinguished local lecturers.

A large part of the thrill of river cruising is the opportunity to tour the destinations and ports of call along the way. Crystal provides you with numerous opportunities to discover authentic Europe, with a choice of adventures according to your preferred activity level. Tour options will include morning, afternoon, and full-day programs, local expert escorts, small & personal group sizes, pre-reservations for tours, and Atlanta e-bikes for those who wish to explore on their own.

Destination Cities

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague, is situated on the Vltava River in central Bohemia. It is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. The city proper is home to about 1.3 million people, while its metropolitan area is estimated to have a population of over 2.3 million. It has been a political, cultural and economic center of Europe and particularly central Europe for the over 1,100 years of its existence. For centuries, during the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was the permanent seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus was also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. The city played roles in the Protestant Reformation, the Thirty Years' War, and in 20th-century history, both during the two World Wars and during the post-war Communist era.

Vienna, Austria

Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.7 million (2.4 million within the metropolitan area, more than 25% of Austria's population), and is by far the largest city in Austria, as well as its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 10th-largest city by population in the European Union. Vienna is host to many major international organizations, such as the United Nations and OPEC. The city is also known for its Imperial palaces, including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence. Apart from being regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy, Vienna is also said to be "The City of Dreams" because it was home to the world's first psycho-analyst - Sigmund Freud.

Bratislava, Slovakia

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and, with a population of about 431,000, also the country's largest city. Bratislava is in southwestern Slovakia on both banks of the Danube River. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two independent countries. Bratislava and Vienna are two of the closest European national capitals to each other, at less than 37 miles apart. Bratislava is the political, cultural, and economic centre of Slovakia. It is the seat of the Slovak president, the parliament, and the executive branch of the government. It is home to several universities, museums, theatres, galleries and other important cultural and educational institutions.

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is the capital of Hungary. As the largest city of Hungary, it serves as the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre. In 2010, Budapest had 1,721,556 inhabitants, down from its 1980 peak of 2.06 million. The Budapest Commuter Area is home to 3,271,110 people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometres (202.7 sq mi) within the city limits. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with a unification on 17 November 1873 of right (west)-bank Buda and Óbuda with left (east)-bank Pest. Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. Due to its scenic setting and its architecture it is nicknamed "Paris of the East."
