Riverside Luxury Cruises | 2023 Mozart Sailings With Pricing

In 2022, Riverside Luxury Cruises acquired Crystal Mozart, a beautiful ship that is double the width of standard river cruisers. © 2016 Ralph Grizzle

I am excited to see the Mozart launch under Riverside Luxury Cruises. I sailed the double-width beauty when it operated under Crystal (and even before that when it cruised for Peter Deilmann). Mozart is one of the loveliest vessels afloat, and those who have sailed it appreciate its spaciousness. Because of Mozart’s width, it can only cruise the Danube – primarily between Budapest, Vienna and Passau. That’s fine as the Danube is one of the most popular rivers in Europe – and the one we recommend for first-time river cruisers.

Mozart is particularly appealing to those jumping ship from small-ship ocean cruises. Indeed, Mozart has the feel of those small luxury vessels, with twice as much room as a standard river cruiser. You can get a feel for Mozart by checking out this digital online brochure and in my photo gallery below.

We’ll be reporting lots more about Riverside in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned. For now, peruse the sailings below for sailing dates and pricing. Note that some travelers are choosing to combine shorter cruises for multi-night back-to-back sailings. Also, note that Riverside’s pricing in the chart below is per cabin, not per person. Rates provided are all inclusive. If you missed our earlier post about Riverside’s foray into river cruising, check out Crystal River Cruises Reincarnated? Riverside Acquires Rest Of Crystal Fleet

I took these photos in 2016, during inaugural ceremonies for Crystal Mozart. The ship underwent a massive renovation for Crystal and has changed little since Riverside acquired it. However, you may see some remnants of Crystal in the photo, such as the name of the ship on the hull.
