London based design firm, AD Associates are creating a new standard in river cruising. Over the past two years, Crystal Cruises has completely reimagined the European river experience with the most spacious, state-of-the-art fleet of river yachts, boasting exceptional design and unparalleled all-inclusive amenities along with extraordinary personal attention and service. In short, it’s six-star service, superior dining and the largest suites in river cruising aboard an exquisite new class of river vessels.
With 110 passengers, the first of four Rhine Class vessels; Crystal Bach feels more like a hi-end boutique hotel, striking just the right chord between luxury and sophistication to create a chic yet relaxed interior. Anthology from Style Library Contract was chosen for the Waterside dining area; which transforms from an open airy space with amazing views by day, to an intimate dining experience by night. The sleek finish and moody metropolitan hues of grey and teal exude cool sophistication. Anthology Kiyoshi sheer was selected for the windows and the deliciously tactile, Anthology Veda deep pile velvet is used on the chairs. The attention to detail and uncompromising design finish completes the look.
David McCarthy, Director Marine Projects says; “River cruising is undergoing something of a transformation. As R&D and long standing interior designers for Crystal Cruises, AD Associates were privileged to curate a number of luxurious spaces aboard their first ever newbuild river yachts. Our aim was to create a new level in luxury interiors; selecting the right products has made that possible.”
