Crystal is introducing new 10-day “Enchanting Moselle” itineraries aboard Crystal Bach, round-trip from Amsterdam through Germany and the Netherlands, beginning May 28, 2019, through December 24, 2019, with five completely new ports of call through the Moselle River. On the new journeys, guests can experience the Mosel wine region in Bernkastel, the Roman ruins of Trier, the Reichsburg Castle in Cochem, and more.

Along with Moselle, new destinations to explore along the Rhine River include Bonn, Beethoven’s birthplace; Dusseldorf, the cultural and fashion hub of Germany; the historic war museums of Arnhem, Netherlands; and Koblenz, which offers travelers a unique perspective of the point at which the Rhine and the Moselle meet. Overnights spent in Amsterdam and Trier afford time for longer excursions, like a day trip to nearby Luxembourg or an in-depth exploration of Holland’s art and culinary scenes.

The all-suite, all-butler, all-balcony Crystal Bach serves 106 guests. Crystal Bach’s standard suites measure 253 square feet and the two-bedroom, two-bath Crystal Suite measures 759 square feet.
