Luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises has announced it will launch its own river cruise line, Crystal River Cruises, in spring 2017.

“We continue to think bigger, aiming to create unparalleled luxury experiences and adventures for our loyal and new guests, who – like Crystal – continue to seek broader horizons and new perspectives on the world,” said Crystal’s president and CEO, Edie Rodriguez.

In addition, Crystal also announced three new Crystal Exclusive Class cruise ships, with the first expected for delivery in late 2018.

Guests will have the opportunity to call a Crystal ship ‘home’ with innovative top deck Crystal Residences complete with their own private restaurant, reception and facilities.

Other revolutionary features being introduced include higher ceilings, a one-to-one crew-to-guest ratio and mouth-watering menus centered on the expertise of Michelin-starred and celebrity chefs.

The new vessels will make Crystal the first ever cruise line to deliver expedition-capable ships with all the signature features and amenities of a luxury ship or private yacht.
