One day after disembarking Crystal Debussy, I received a phone call from one of the six guests who accompanied me. “Possibly the best cruise ever,” the experienced cruiser said. I had to agree. Just as was the case with Crystal Bach on the Rhine and Moselle in October of 2019, Crystal Debussy exceeded our expectations.
Four reasons that come to mind as to why: 1) the elegant vessel itself; 2) the beauty of the Moselle river; 3) the personable and professional staff; and 4) the quality of the dining experience.
No venue highlights the dining better than The Vintage Room. The alternative dining venue is one of the only “activities” on Crystal Debussy that carries an extra charge. We opted for a four-course “wine tour” dinner for 199 euros per person (the six-course dinner goes for 299 euros).
Our evening in The Vintage Room, which began with a sunset toast on the top deck, was certainly one of the highlights of our cruise. I’ve included a photo of our menu below. The Vintage Room is about as close as it gets to a Michelin-starred experience on a river cruiser.
