Luxury Lifestyle River Cruise Budapest

Crystal River Cruises completely reimagines the current European river cruising experience with luxurious, spacious, state-of-the-art vessels that marry Crystal’s award-winning six-star service and amenities with the well-recognized benefits of river cruising to deliver immersively, expertly curated river journeys into the heart of Europe and beyond.

For discerning luxury travelers seeking exciting new adventures through Europe’s premier cultural and scenic landscapes, Crystal River Yachts offers a front-row seat to renowned cities and treasured towns and villages with shoreside experiences that provide unique opportunities and access in an All-Inclusive fashion.

Napoleon declared it “Queen of Europe’s Rivers” and with a mesmerizing beauty that is at once both regal and enchanting, the mighty Danube is indeed breathtaking. Cruise the scenic Wachau Valley, an Austrian wonderland and UNESCO World Heritage Site of terraced vineyards and picturesque castle towns.

Fairytale landscapes dotted with castles, abbeys, forests, and vineyards straight out of storybooks, coming alive as you meander through the storied streets and countryside. What should not be overlooked, though, as Crystal Mozart sets sail, are the views from this luxurious ship. In fact, before you even leave the posh surroundings of the 120.4 meter long (395 feet) vessel, you can take in many of the cities’ most famous sites, as they’re visible – in their architectural, monumental and historical splendor – from your favorite perch on board.

Here are some of the spots that you must see from Crystal Mozart:

CRYSTAL MOZART

CRYSTAL SIGNATURE EVENT


Guests will be treated to a classical concert performed by opera singers, ballet dancers and members of a great Viennese orchestra amid the captivating performance and opulent surroundings in the historical Belvedere Palace for this Crystal Signature Event.

Dürnstein: Pearl of the Wachau Valley

This is one of Austria’s loveliest small towns. Dürnstein is perched on a ridge overlooking the Danube in Lower Austria’s Wachau Valley. In the heart of a popular wine-growing region, its Medieval stone castle (where King Richard I of England was imprisoned in 1192) stands in ruins.

Did you know? Grüner Veltliner vines grow on Danube slopes so steep that they can barely retain any soil. The result is a very pure, mineral wine that compares favorably with some of the great wines of the world.

Melk: A Baroque Showstopper

Cameras ready? Melk Abbey is a magnificent Benedictine abbey on yet another rocky outcrop overlooking the Danube. Melk Abbey has housed monks for 900 years; this largest example of Baroque architecture is Austria’s very best example.

Linz: The Mozarthaus Marvel

It’s a question that experts marvel to this day. How did the 27-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart manage to compose his Symphony No. 36 (known as Linz Symphony) during a three-day stopover here? Austria’s third-largest city is sophisticated and modern with touches of Gothic influence.

Bratislava: Capital of Slovakia

You can’t miss it. Directly on the banks of the Danube, look up on a hill to see the imposing city landmark in the form of Bratislava Castle. Rarely has one structure – even if that structure is prehistoric era castle – housed such historical significance. Formerly the treasury for the Hungarian Crown Jewels, and currently housing the Slovak Parliament (the National Council of the Slovak Republic), the castle has seen Celts, Romans and Slavs occupy it, while weathering also the Renaissance and Baroque periods. When you look at this castle, you are literally seeing thousands of years of history in brick and mortar.

Visegrád: The Danube Bend

It’s a nature lover’s paradise. Catch panoramic views as the Danube meanders. A curve in the river near Visegrád is a popular scenic landmark on the approach to Budapest. Pass between the Transdanubian Mountains and the North Hungarian Mountains, a passage that is singled out as noteworthy by UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Budapest: Straddling the Danube

Budapest’s monuments and treasures can be seen from the Danube River

Superlatives abound. A dramatic arrival in Budapest, passing the splendid Hungarian Parliament and underneath the mid-19th century Chain Bridge, is yet another highlight of Danube River journeys. No fewer than 15 bridges cross the river in Hungary’s capital city, known as the Pearl of the Danube.

Did you know? Prior to 1873, Buda and Pest were two distinct cities sliced down the middle by the Danube. On the hilly west side, Buda is the traditional home of royalty, castles, and fortresses. Pest is the commercial hub on the east.

 

 

Lifestyle River Cruise Budapest Accommodations & Dining Information

When asked what three traits all Crystal sommeliers have that make them excel at their jobs, Bob answers: “Knowledge of wine, the ability to connect with guests and interpret their needs and finally, humility.” Traditionally, sommeliers were haughty, rather imposing tuxedo-clad characters known for intimidating diners and pressuring them into higher-priced bottles. While Crystal Mozart does have a $4,000 bottle of Chateau Petrus on board, its sommeliers can recognize if guests will be happier with a $20 bottle of wine or even a $3 beer. After all, a true sommelier, as found on Crystal Cruises’ ships, is trained in all beverages—from wine to spirits, beers, ciders and even water.

Travel Insurance

Yikes, travel insurance is not a fun topic but a lot of you have asked…

This is what happens if you are paid, packed and ready to go… and there is a problem. We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance for your upcoming trip. There are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. Travel insurance offers coverage for these unforeseen problems. You even have the option where you can cancel for any reason.

The Swinger Cruise Travel Insurance

The biggest 2 reasons people take insurance are:

  • Trip Cancellation
  • Medical Expenses or Medical Evacuation

Full Ship charters are better than regular cruises in many ways, however, the penalties and potential for a loss if you have to cancel is higher. Shortly after final payment, most full ship charter cruises become non-refundable. That means if you have to cancel your trip not only do you have that disappointment of a canceled vacation, but I have to tell you that you don’t get your money back.

Our most popular insurance is ‘World Wide Trip Protector’ and provides full coverage when purchased up to 21 days after your vacation purchase.

The best value just to make sure you have coverage is ‘Trip Protector Lite Expanded.’

We recommend Travel Insured – Get a quote and buy insurance  
Note: this link opens a window for Travel Insured – if you have questions pleases phone our office for assistance.

Please consider purchasing Travel Insurance

Since everyone pretty much likes me right now and I’d like it to stay that way, please consider purchasing travel insurance. Or at least don’t say I didn’t warn you if there is a problem.

Other coverages that take the worry out of travel:

  • Trip Interruption-Return air only
  • Trip Delay & Missed Connection coverage
  • Baggage Loss or Delay
  • Cancel for Work Reasons Options available on select policies
