“We are thrilled to welcome Crystal Ravel to the fleet, which will further expand the many choices our guests have for experiencing luxury on the rivers of Europe,” said Wolber. “Since launching Crystal River Cruises two years ago, our ships and their dedicated staff and crew have consistently raised the bar of excellence in the industry.”

Crystal Ravel joins Crystal River Cruises approximately one month after its sister ship, Crystal Debussy, was received by the company at the same shipyard. Crystal Debussy embarked on its maiden voyage on April 9 from Amsterdam.

Crystal ravel sets sail on May 10 from Basel to Vienna, and will embark on itineraries along the Rhine, Danube, Main and Moselle rivers to towns and cities in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Slovakia. Like its newly built sister ships Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Debussy, the 106-guest Crystal Ravel offers butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, Panoramic Balcony-Windows, walk-in closets and dual vanity in the bathrooms in most categories.

Other highlights include farm-to-table cuisine in open-seating eateries, over 200 inclusive shore-side adventures, as well as inclusive Signature Events that are offered on each river itinerary.
