Celebrated culinary experiences in Vienna and Budapest offered complimentary, on every Crystal Mozart voyage.

Crystal Mozart has just embarked for the first time on her spectacular voyages along the Danube River! The luxuriously re-imagined river ship offers travellers exclusive amenities and experiences for which Crystal has long been celebrated. Crystal River Cruises recently officially announced the latest in these extraordinary experiences in the form of Michelin-starred restaurant events, offered only for Crystal guests in Vienna and Budapest. On each Crystal Mozart voyage, guests will be treated to one complimentary culinary event at a restaurant recognised by the refined Michelin organisation, each carefully selected by Crystal’s equally refined culinary experts.

Guests may choose one complimentary superlative experience from a selection of seven Michelin-starred restaurants, with the option of reserving further experiences at an additional cost. Crystal’s vice president of food and beverage, Toni Neumeister, has worked closely with the acclaimed chefs and Crystal’s own culinary teams to craft culinary events and menus especially for Crystal Mozart guests.

“Of course, cuisine and the customs surrounding it are significant to any travel experience, and we are delighted to offer our guests some of the best culinary experiences in the world as part of their Crystal Experience," says Edie Rodriguez, Crystal’s CEO and president.
