Mozart Moves On

Saturday morning Bob mentioned that the river cruise ship we took for our Christmas Markets tour would no longer be a part of the Crystal Cruises river fleet. He's worse than I am in constantly checking out the Cruise Critic forums for news. The Mozart, which is the ship we were on for that cruise in December of 2017 will become a part of the Gentings Cruise Line for a venture that is yet to be announced.

Gentings Cruise Line is the parent company of Crystal. While we were on our World Cruise in 2015 is when I believe that happened. So many cruise lines are a part of a bigger conglomerate. In some cases that can be good for frequent cruisers as many times your cruising credits (days at sea accumulated in the cruise lines' loyalty programs) can be applied to another cruise line in the conglomerate. For example, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity will upgrade your status to reflect your cruising experience with each of them.

The Mozart is a grand ship and the ship experience was exceptional on our cruise. It didn't hurt that we got upgraded to a better suite because of our loyalty points (108 days on a world cruise paid off). While Mozart moves on, there are still other ships in the Crystal fleet that are cruising in Europe. A little pricey but a great way to cruise the rivers.

Here's a link to my Christmas Markets river cruise posts.
