Crystal Clean

As they welcome guests and crew onboard, Crystal have introduced their Crystal Clean policy, making sure that their ships are safe to travel on for everyone.

Prior to Cruising

Before boarding, guests must complete a Declaration of Safety confirming they are well enough to travel. At embarkation, guests must undergo temperature checks, and all luggage will be disinfected before being loaded. Crew will also have health screenings and frequent monitoring throughout their time onboard.

Onboard measures

On each ship social distancing will be ensured by a reduced ship capacity. Other protocols include contactless dining, no self-service buffets and shore excursions only with partners with high levels of hygiene. Cleaning measures are also key, with frequent sanitation of public areas, suites and staterooms. In addition, the air onboard is 100% fresh thanks to the ventilation. To ensure that protocols are followed, a Public Health Officer will be onboard.

Guests can enjoy all-inclusive fine dining inspired by the regions visited during their Crystal River Cruise, exquisitely prepared by a dedicated and experienced team of chefs. For the early risers, a breakfast buffet is on offer, while the evening meal is always an impressive event during your cruise.

What's more, Crystal River Cruises are proud to incorporate a ‘farm-to-table’ mantra throughout their dining venues, ensuring every Michelin-inspired meal is European-sourced with a fantastic list of wines, spirits and soft drinks to accompany. Furthermore, Crystal's guests can take advantage of one-of-a-kind complimentary experiences at a Michelin-starred restaurant in select cities on every voyage.

In addition, staff are pleased to go above and beyond to accommodate your dietary requirements and requests, so be sure to notify them of birthdays and special occasions to truly celebrate in the lap of luxury.

Crystal River Cruises Entertainment

Crystal's 6-star river yachts come with state-of-the-art facilities, including a well-equipped fitness area where the treadmill, stationary bicycle, elliptical machine, Kinesis machine and weights provide the perfect setting for a workout, while yoga and Pilates classes are available for some slower-paced exercise.

During moments of peace and quiet, enhance the tranquillity at the onboard Crystal Life Spa. This stunning space combines nature and science in a range of treatments to enhance health, fitness and beauty. Whether you’re in need of a deep massage, a hair trim or a soak in the pool, the spa has everything you need to wind down after a busy day of sightseeing in the sun. Meanwhile, for those looking to further enrich their cruise, destination experts present lectures onboard so that you can learn more about the history and culture of each port.

The main hub for socialising during the evenings on a Crystal river cruise is Palm Court, where guests can exchange stories about their adventures or sit back and enjoy the live performances over drinks. From piano music and cabaret performances to local artists from the port at which the ship is docked being invited onboard, the perfect evening awaits you. If you’d rather take your drink outside to enjoy in the fresh air, the al fresco Vista Bar is located on the top-deck of each ship and is a popular spot for watching the river go by or marvelling at the stars overhead.

Crystal River Cruises Destinations

With Crystal, river cruising is all about the enriching experience of exploring each city in a way that you might not on an ocean cruise or land-based holiday. In order to make the most of their destinations, each ship is assigned to a river on which they become an expert.

Whether you’re an enthusiast of rustic French wines, an appreciator of gothic German castles, or simply want to discover all there is to know in numerous museums, there is a river with the perfect package for you:

  • The Rhine- Amsterdam, Cologne, Koblenz, Rudesheim, Kehl, Breisach, Basel
  • The Danube- Vienna, Dürnstein, Melk, Linz, Passau, Bratislava, Budapest
  • The Moselle- Trier, Koblenz, Metz, Remich, Thionville, Schengen
  • The Main- Frankfurt, Würzburg, Offenbach, Hanau, Aschaffenburg


In each port of call, Crystal River Cruises provide guests with a choice of Crystal Destination Discoveries included as part of your cruise. These exclusive Crystal River Cruises excursions give you once-in-a-lifetime experiences in places that others can't usually access, reached by travelling on one of Crystal’s privately owned luxury coaches. Alternatively, for the more daring traveller, the freedom to explore at your own leisure is made easy thanks to GPS Whisper Guides in selected ports, giving fascinating insights as you go solo.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
