The sweet melody of classical music played by a string quartet fills the room as waiters walk around handing flutes of champagne to guests. It is moments like these that one would wish one could bottle up and save for later.

For the past 30 years, Crystal Cruises has done just that, offering unparalleled luxury experiences to travelers of the most discerning taste. While they cannot save the moments for later, they create memories that seem to come out of a dream, memories that one keeps for a lifetime.

“As Crystal Cruises continues our business expansion in Asia Pacific, we are delighted to excite Filipino travelers with world-renowned Crystal Experience aboard our award winning fleet of luxury ships,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises and head of international sales.

On its 30th anniversary, guests were recently invited to Cru Steakhouse at Marriot Manila for the reveal of Crystal Cruises’ latest luxury experience offering: the Crystal Mozart. With love in the air this season, Crystal Cruises is the perfect couples getaway with its all-suite, butler-serviced, pampering experiences in the world’s most romantic destinations.

Voted World’s Best River Cruise in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Award in 2019, the Crystal Mozart promises travelers an affair to remember.

Beginning in March, Crystal Mozart’s romantic voyages will be anchored by the cities of Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary and will feature a variety of all-inclusive itineraries for six or seven or 10 nights along the famed Danube River. It is the quintessentially central European river, one that encapsulates the allure of imperial Europe centuries ago, when the continent was filled with kings and queens that sat on the throne of empires, living lives of opulence and luxury, surrounded by music and art.

Along the way, lush landscapes, medieval castles, and Baroque architecture that have inspired generations of classical artists, musicians, and poets will surround travelers. Take in the splendor of the Wachau Valley. Through their complimentary shore excursions, walk along the cobblestone streets of historic cities such as Bratislava, Passau, Melk, and Krems, with castles and buildings with old-world charm that it will be like stepping into a fairy tale of your own creation.

It is almost impossible to separate the Danube from classical music, whether the First Viennese School of HaydnMozart, and Beethoven, to the latter works of Brahms and Bruckner, to the Strauss waltz that carries its name. A special highlight of every Crystal voyage is a complimentary live musical experience. These intimate “Signature Events” combine privileged access to a landmark venue, including Vienna’s Belvedere Palace, with a world-class musical performance.

Onboard, complimentary fine wines, champagnes, and spirits are available. With only 154 passengers at any one time, a staff to guest ratio of 1 to 1.7, all on one of Europe’s most spacious river cruises, it will feel like a private and intimate getaway.

It has been said that love is the food of life, and travel the dessert. If that is so, a luxury experience in the heart of Europe sure makes for a grand feast for all the senses, especially when shared with a loved one.
