Vienna, Austria (January 10, 2023) – Riverside Luxury Cruises announces today the expansion of their fleet with the acquisition of MS Bach, MS Ravel, MS Mahler and MS Debussy. The additional ships will join the Riverside Mozart, widely hailed as the most luxurious ship on the rivers, and start sailings beginning April 2023 on the Danube.

The Riverside Ravel will include sailings on both the Rhône and Saône, providing guests a chance to indulge in all that Southern France has to offer sailing from Burgundy to Provence. Riverside Debussy will enchant guests as they sail along the Rhine and pass sheer cliffs, fairy-tale castles, ancient princedoms and shining cities from Amsterdam to Switzerland. Itineraries for the Riverside Bach and Riverside Mahler are slated for 2024 and will be announced later this year for booking. These ships were originally designed and operated by Crystal Cruises and represent the pinnacle of luxury on Europe’s rivers.

“We are thrilled by the expansion of our fleet to include these storied vessels,” says Gregor Gerlach, who founded Riverside Luxury Cruises. Gerlach continued, “This acquisition allows us to expand our itinerary offerings, showcasing a level of space, personalized service and elegance not found with any other river cruise line.”

Riverside Luxury Cruises will be defined not only by its crew-to-guest ratio but by its service culture, which is authentically personal in nature. Nowhere will this be better exemplified than by its butlers, who will go above and beyond to assist guests with any and all needs from reservations and excursions to special requests and one-of-a-kind experiences. Each excursion is organized and designed by a best-in-class- shoreside team, with the goal of providing guests an open door to a world of exclusive experiences. On shore and on board, wellness experiences will be curated to encourage guests to enjoy the river and surrounding countryside with all their senses. From a culinary perspective, Riverside aims to provide the best cuisine and wine cellar on the water and will place an emphasis on the freshness and quality of all ingredients on board. Each ship will have a crew of trained sommeliers and bartenders will have access to special regional and global wines as well as some of the best spirits available, with a wine cellar that is unparalleled even among the best restaurants on land.

Now available for bookings, Riverside Luxury Cruises will offer aggressive pricing, competitive commissions (21% on all 2023 sailings) and special introductory FAM rates for travel advisors.
