Will Crystal Mozart still be in Crystal's fleet on April 23, 2021?

We received word yesterday that the Mozart was leaving the Crystal river fleet at the end of 2019. We are currently working on changing to the Crystal Mahler which does the Danube leaving Bavaria,Regensburg (Munich airport) on April 24 with debarkation in Budapest. The newer Crystal ships are more expensive than the Mozart for similar cabins but our pricing will be protected at the prices paid for the Mozart. So that is good news. If anyone wants to cancel there is a full refund

I am on the Silver Cloud right now but I am on top of this and Hunter in our office is the liaison in the office. Once we get things worked out we will be in touch with everyone.

Ngaire, going from a W1 on Mozart to S4 or S5 on Mahler drops size from 219 to 188 sq ft; is that noticeable or are the rooms on Mahler just as nice? Looks like no stop in Bratislava so will just have to do that pre before boarding in Budapest.

Working on the W1 the PH cabins now to see if I can get some options for those cabins.

The petite suites cost more than the W1 but I am aware of the square footage difference.

There are no PH cabins on the Mahler and those cabins are larger than the cabins on the Mahler

Just going to take me some time to work on this and once I have answers I will be in touch. The weekend is slowing that done. This is a high priority for me.

Those in the S1 and S2 cabins are going to a larger cabin and those are really nice we all loved them on the last river cruise. So they are in great shape.

For those of us who are doing the B2B Crystal riverboat cruises with 5 days in the middle....have you started to give any thought to what you're going to do with 5 days between cruises?? We were talking about it yesterday....so many options !! Making my head swim.

Yes, that change from the Mozart to the Mahler gave us great pricing but increased the time in-between to 5 days. April 19 debark from the Debussy and April 24 embark on the Mahler. So 19 - 24th to fill in.

Crystal will have a Post-Tulips and a Pre-Danube trip on offer. Usually three days. So I think some may do that and just arrive in Budapest a two nights early. Budapest is a neat city. Way too early for any details on those programs yet.

Interested in this April 24th to May 31st 2021 cruise but have questions one of you can probably answer for me.

What airport do you fly into and out of?

Is anyone looking at doing something pre- cruise and maybe also post- cruise? A 7 day cruise just seems to short
to all that way and not try to do something.

thanks
Jim B

Well well.

Jan and I have signed up for the Crystal River Cruise on the Mahler 04/24/21 to 05/ 01/21 Budapest to Regensburg!!!! Cabin # 203

Now here is my question for those of you doing the B/B cruise. You get off in Amsterdam April 19th and have 5 days until you board this ship.
What are you going to do during those days??
Reason I ask is Jan and I thought if you have something neat planned we might fly into Amsterdam and join you on your trip to Budapest.

Too early. We are waiting for the pre and post options to be posted by Crystal for 2021. Those are normally 3 nights and the 2 nights in Budapest is great. A wonderful city and easy to get around. Last time we left from Budapest on AMA we went to Prague and loved it. Would like to go there again. This is what they are showing for Prague on Crystal.

It is going to be very different (and certainly sad) to be traveling alone, without my best friend, Penny, but she made me promise to keep living my life. So I am excited to be joining our friends on this great river cruise, and I will be in 202 for Budapest to Regensburg! So add me to the Roll Call, Marcie!

Happen to be looking at "Vacations to Go" and pulled up our cruise on their river cruise site.
While looking around on the site I came across a section which said "One Formal night"!!

Another section had write ups about each ports of call.

No real formal night - not on any river boat I have ever been on and not on the Crystal boats either. Don't think I even took a jacket for Ken and DEFINITELY no tie on our last Crystal River Groups. In fact it has been YEARS since I took a tie.

Same on Silversea expedition ships. They say formal night on the welcome aboard. What happens -you find men with coats and ties and other with dress jeans and open neck short sleeve shirt. Plus everything in between.

I did hear from Crystal and they are working on a land program between the two cruises for those on the back to back. It will be a 3 or 4 day program to fill in the time in-between. Probably to Slovenia and that is supposed to be a great place to visit. Wheels turn very slowly when the time frame is so far ahead but nice to know this may be an option.

I imagine Crystal will allow people from both cruises could to book. . Tulip cruise as post cruise and Danube cruise as pre cruise.
