Introducing - Crystal Debussy
Launching in 2018


As the only all-suite, butler-serviced ships cruising the waterways of Europe, the river yachts of Crystal River Cruises also offer the largest luxury suites, the highest staff-to-guest ratio and an unrivaled standard of state-of-the-art design and amenities.  Aboard Crystal Debussy every suite is a sanctuary of refined elegance, beautifully appointed with the latest technologies and creature comforts.  Every suite features an expansive panoramic balcony-window, where with just a touch of a button the top window slides down for fresh air and creates the perfect view for watching the beauty of Europe unfold right before your eyes.
