Crystal Rivers Cruises have recently announced that they will be bidding farewell to Crystal Mozart, the ship that spearheaded the Crystal River brand, in December of this year. The four ships remaining in the fleet – Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel – were all custom built for the line between 2017 and 2018, with all-suite, all-balcony accommodations. The departure of Crystal Mozart thus means that Crystal River Cruises’ fleet is the youngest in the industry.
