Crystal Cruises Unveils Design For Crystal Mozart
Crystal Cruises has unveiled the design for the first vessel in the Crystal River Cruises fleet. Crystal Mozart will set sail on 13th July on its maiden voyage round-trip from Vienna, with spacious and stylishly outfitted guest suites, public lounges and dining venues.
Beyond the stylish décor – fashioned by London’s AD Associates and Toronto’s II by IV Design – the “Queen of European Rivers” will also boast innovative entertainment spaces, adventurous amenities and the luxurious appointments that the world’s most discerning travellers have come to expect from Crystal.
Among the more exceptional touches on the river ship will be a pop-up bar area on the top “Vista” deck, complete with a vanishing movie screen for al fresco evening show times. Also on the Vista deck will be a living rooftop garden area with teak bench seating areas for guests to enjoy nature as they sail along the Danube River. Two custom tender boats will be available onboard for more intimate exploration of the waterway’s picturesque locations, plus abundant outdoor space will ensure that travellers don’t miss any of the magnificent views.
Crystal Mozart will offer a timeless colour palette intended to transcend seasons and complement the stunning surroundings found in the destinations throughout Austria, Hungary, Germany, Slovakia, Croatia and Serbia.
The soothing colour palette and plush fabrics continue into the guest suites, all of which will feature king-size beds, Nespresso machines, 40-inch flat-screen televisions and sparkling marble bathrooms. The 158-guest capacity Crystal Mozart will have window suites of 219 square feet, deluxe suites with French Balcony of 219 square feet, penthouse suites of 330 square feet and a two-bedroom Crystal Suites of 883 square feet, the largest suite on any river vessel afloat. One-bedroom Penthouses and the two-bedroom Crystal Suite will feature French Balconies, walk-in closets and separate showers and oversized bathtubs. Crystal’s acclaimed butler service will be available with every guest suite.
The ship’s four main decks – named, from bottom to top, Harmony (homage to Crystal’s first ocean ship), Seahorse, Crystal and Vista – will offer numerous public areas for guests to enjoy onboard enrichment, fitness and wellness and world-class dining. A newly installed elevator will be located mid-ship to take guests between the Harmony and Crystal decks.
Crystal Mozart will offer guests an array of dining options throughout the day, including:
Waterside – the main dining area with an indoor/outdoor setting, which will serve elaborate breakfast and lunch buffets followed by upscale evening dinner service.
Palm Court – reminiscent of the Palm Court on Crystal Symphony, the venue will be a main hub for dancing and live local entertainment, as well as casual cocktails and tea.
Blue – this aft indoor dining area will offer a casual atmosphere and a menu of global comfort food, similar to Tastes found aboard Crystal Serenity.
Bistro Mozart – often the go-to spot aboard Crystal vessels for freshly baked pastries, fruit and snacks, plus coffee, espresso and tea, Crystal Mozart’s bistro will serve light bites throughout the day.
The Pantry – a self-service wine and beverage bar, ideal for a quick snack on the go.
The Vintage Room – as aboard Crystal’s ocean ships, the intimate dining room for approximately a dozen guests will host winemakers’ dinners and special occasions.
The Cove will be a main hub, housing a Yamaha AvantGrand Piano, manned by the vessel’s entertainment host. On the upper Vista deck, the pop-up bar area will set the scene for celebrations under the stars.
Crystal Mozart will also feature fully-equipped fitness, spa and salon facilities at the Crystal Life Spa, marking the first time ever the spa on a Crystal ship will be operated and staffed by Crystal’s own trained crew. An indoor pool will complement two treatment rooms and male and female sauna and steam rooms.
