Crystal River Cruises’ Fleet Earns Green Award Certification

Crystal River Cruises’ sister ships Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel have all earned Green Award certification. The certificate recognizes ships that demonstrate exceptional safety and environmental standards. Established in 1994, Green Award seeks to promote responsible environmental practices among sea-going vessels, establishing the certification for inland shipping and river ships in 2011.

Each of Crystal’s new-build ships, introduced in 2017 and 2018, has a diesel-electric power plant, allowing fuel to be consumed more efficiently for propulsion and to generate electricity and advanced wastewater treatment systems. Captains are specifically trained to always minimize engine loads and fuel consumption by adjusting ships’ speeds and connecting to shore power when in port.

Crystal says it has sought to innovate ways to operate its sea- and river-going vessels in the environmentally responsible manner for decades, having adopted a comprehensive Crystal Clean policy early in its existence. Spanning corporate and guest-facing areas alike, the policy includes the minimization of plastic bottles and containers whenever possible, plus a fleet-wide ban on all plastic straws, use of reusable cloth laundry and shoe-shine bags in all guest suites, meticulous sorting and recycling processes, and LED lighting throughout all ships.
