This is the first time that an established ocean cruise line has ventured into the growing river cruise business. With Crystal's reputation and pedigree, they execute a fine product that sits firmly at the premium end of the market. They bring that polished ocean cruise experience, and offer open dining, an alternative evening dining venue, and longer durations that allow them to do more scenic cruising and have more overnight stays. They feature four sister ships, each with only just over 100 guests and all cabins/suites on these feature  a french balcony as a minimum.  2022 sees the return into service of the wonderful double-width Crystal Mozart, now with just 120 guests
