Crystal Ravel, now being built, is part of Crystal Cruises' fleet of new all-inclusive river yachts. She'll debut in May 2018 and begin sailings on the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers of central Europe.
At about 443 feet long, the largest size allowed on those rivers, the yacht will feature a swimming pool with a sliding glass roof, multiple restaurants and 53 suites for 106 guests, including large staterooms up to 759 square feet.
Your fare covers select shore excursions, butlers, bartenders, waiters, housekeepers, gratuities, unlimited alcohol (including wine, spirits and beer), bottled water, soft drinks, meals at all restaurants, 24-hour room service, at least 60 minutes of free Wi-Fi per person per day and airport transfers to/from the ship on arrival and departure days.
Where Crystal Ravel sails
Crystal Ravel will feature itineraries along the storied Danube, Main and Rhine rivers of Europe.
Among the highlights will be a full-service spa coupled with the high level of service, cuisine and stylish decor that Crystal is known for. Sophisticated, creative shore excursions are included as part of the experience.
There will be multiple eateries on board featuring Crystal’s refined cuisine. Passengers can choose to dine in the elegant Waterside Restaurant, the namesake Bistro cafés, the exclusive Vintage Room, the Cove Bar and Palm Court. Crystal will offer true open-seating dining, allowing guests to dine where they want, when they want and with whom they want.
All rooms on board are suites and all are above the waterline, meaning there are no bad staterooms on board. Crystal Ravel will offer butler service in every suite with features that include plush king-size beds that face toward the panoramic balcony windows, fine Egyptian-cotton linens, walk-in closets, full-length mirrors, ETRO robes and slippers, wall-mounted flat-screen HD televisions and Nespresso machines.
