Crystal Mahler Dining
Crystal Mahler offers three dining venues. The ship’s main restaurant, The Waterside, provides a serene setting in which to enjoy the freshest regionally and internationally-influenced cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are both buffet-style, while dinner is served at your table on an open-seating basis.
The ship’s second restaurant, The Vintage Room, is a must for wine enthusiasts and serves themed cuisine that can be enjoyed with locally selected wines. An intimate venue with space for just a few guests, The Vintage Room is reservation-only (please ask at the time of booking).
Finally, Crystal Mahler also has it’s own Bistro, The Pantry, where you can pick-up light-bites such as pastries and snacks.
Crystal Mahler Facilities
Crystal Mahler has plenty of facilities for you to enjoy during your cruise. The indoor pool has a retractable roof which is perfect when the sun is shining, while the Palm Court Lounge becomes the hub of the ship during the evenings, with guests taking a seat to watch musical performances and relax with drinks from the bar. This area is made even more special thanks to its domed-glass roof, which means you’re effectively sitting under the stars once the night draws in.
Other facilities on Crystal Mahler include a library, a fitness suite and a spa. It is also equipped with kayaks, jet skis and electric bikes which can be hired from reception should you wish to explore independently.
