In Crystal River Cruises™, Onboard Pursuits

FROM SUGARPLUMS TO SUGAR CONES, ABOARD CRYSTAL MOZART

Tis the season for wonderment – and wanderlust – aboard Crystal Mozart. As the grand luxury river yacht explores the impossibly charming hamlets and cities along the Danube River, the surroundings seem transformed to suit the festivities. Our chairman and CEO, Edie Rodriguez, spent the Thanksgiving holiday aboard Crystal Mozart with her husband, Tom, and son, Max, as she hosted the annual President’s Cruise.

Lose yourself in the sea of glittering lights strung above your head as you meander among the merchant stands. Inevitably hum – or sing! – along with the chorus and strings that echo in the streets. Savor the buttery sweetness of freshly baked weihnachtsplätzchen (you don’t need to be able to pronounce it to know they’re delicious).

Crystal Mozart’s ice cream bar is the ideal place to fine snow-capped gingerbread houses and other sweet treats.

Whimsical touches are everywhere, from the décor to the smiles of Crystal’s dedicated crew.
