Crystal Ravel Relish the pampering

Crystal Ravel was originally designed to sail on the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers from Bordeaux from August 2017. However, based on overwhelmingly positive guest feedback regarding Central Europe itineraries in Germany, Austria, Belgium, and Amsterdam, Crystal Cruises have elected to delay their entry into the French river cruise market, choosing instead to prioritise their offerings in the German/Austrian region in order to meet high traveller demand for those destination experiences.

Therefore, to best serve their valued guests and accommodate new itineraries on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, Crystal Cruises are modifying and enlarging this luxury river yacht.


The hallmarks of the Crystal brand – service, space, quality and choices – usher in a new era in European river exploration with Crystal River Cruising. With its signature All-Inclusive philosophy, Crystal offers an encompassing luxury experience: butler service for every suite; six-star service and truly exceptional food; unique Crystal Adventures that deliver memorable destination experiences – all working in synch to transpose the World’s Best Ocean Cruising to the World’s Best River Cruising. Crystal will redefine luxury river cruising. 


Food & Drink

The Crystal River Cruises™ culinary experience celebrates dining with a savory combination of cuisine and conversation that together foster unique experiences in a relaxed environment of engaging camaraderie.

The Crystal Cruises Fleet

Founded in 1988 as Crystal Cruises, Crystal revolutionized luxury travel at sea with the launch of our first ocean ship, Crystal Harmony in 1990. Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity followed and, with them, came continued accolades for the Crystal Experience, with noted acclaim for the supreme level of service found aboard the elegant ships. The last 27+ years have seen several stylish redesigns that have kept the ships at the height of elegance and latest technologies, groundbreaking itineraries that have reached all corners of the globe, and innovative experiences on board and ashore that explore the culinary and adventurous elements of worldwide cultures.
