Crystal Cruises has released detailed renderings and design insights for its first river cruise ship, the Crystal Mozart, which will enter service on July 13.

Crystal acquired the Mozart, a former Peter Deilmann vessel, last year and has invested in an extensive redesign of the 158-passenger ship.

The new interiors are being designed by London’s AD Associates and Toronto’s II by IV Design. The palette will be cream, gray and white accented by deep blue, green and vibrant prints. The furnishings will offer contemporary comfort, according to Crystal.
