One of our partners, Crystal Cruises, has been one of the top names in luxury cruising since its inception, claiming more “World’s Best” awards than any other travel and leisure provider in history. Crystal Cruises has decided to expand its offerings and bring the same standards to the river cruises market, and if the company’s most recent announcement is any indicator, they have already surpassed their own expectations.
When you think of “cruising” you picture massive ocean liners, fancy restaurants, swimming pools, casinos, nightclubs and a lot of people on board. While cruising has always proven to be exciting and fun, it’s also known to be an escape of a grandeur scale—one of entertainment and nightlife. But what if you want a vacation that’s more intimate, more sophisticated, and more of a relaxed atmosphere with an enlightening experience? That’s what River Cruising can offer it’s travelers. It’s a way to really experience Europe, be immersed in the local cultures and explore hidden treasures along the countless ports where massive cruise ships cannot enter.
