Less than two months after embarking on its maiden voyage from Vienna, Crystal River Cruises’ Crystal Mozart has launched live view cameras – a river industry first – from three vantage points aboard the vessel.
Travellers seeking a glimpse of the enchanting medieval villages, expansive landscapes and stunning cities on Crystal Mozart’s route along the Danube can now select the “Live Views” option on Crystal’s newly redesigned homepage and enjoy real time views of the ship’s position.
“The live views are truly a benefit for our guests and future guests at home, as they can be instantly transported to the picturesque destinations the world’s only luxury river cruise line visits,” says Crystal president, Edie Rodriguez. “It is also an extremely useful planning tool for those unfamiliar with some of the ports. They can follow along on a voyage virtually and discern which itineraries are right for them.”
While the live views feed have long been featured on the Crystal website for the company’s ocean ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, as well as Crystal Yacht Cruises’ Crystal Esprit, their positioning on Crystal Mozart marks the first ever occasion such digital perks have been featured on a river cruise ship.
The luxury river yacht sails two distinct itineraries of 10 and 11 nights along the Danube, plus a special 10- to 13-night Christmas and New Year’s Eve voyage. All-inclusive fares begin at US$3,090 for a suite.
