The new all-suite ship will cruise the Rhine and Moselle rivers.
Luxury cruise line Crystal has taken delivery of its fourth river ship, Crystal Debussy.
The 106-passenger, all-suite ship will embark on its maiden voyage on April 9, cruising round-trip from Amsterdam along the Rhine.
The ship will then cruise itineraries of between seven and 10 days between Amsterdam and Basel on the Rhine and Moselle, visiting Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Crystal president and chief executive Tom Wolber said Debussy has "the same superior on-board amenities, caring service, world-class dining, complimentary experiences ashore and highly-sought-after itineraries that our guests have enjoyed on board all of our river vessels".
These amenities include butler service for all rooms, plus king-size beds, walk-in closets and dual vanities in the bathrooms in most cabin categories.
Crystal will add a fifth river ship, Crystal Ravel, in April.
