About Us
Considered one of the most beloved vessels on the European waterways, the Mozart will allow Riverside to define a new standard for river cruising. Utilizing the family’s experience operating resorts in the Canary Islands, Germany, Valencia, and the Maldives, Riverside Collection will stand out in terms of its food and beverage, service, excursions, and wellness offerings, in addition to its already remarkable ship and cabin design and layout.

Riverside Collection’s service will be defined not only by its crew-to-guest ratio but by its service culture, which is authentically personal in nature. Nowhere will this be better exemplified than by its butlers, who go above and beyond to assist guests with any and all needs from reservations and excursions to special requests and one-of-a-kind experiences. Every suite on every voyage includes a personal butler.

Throughout its charming Danube journeys, excursions aboard Riverside will capture those special “money can’t buy moments.” Each excursion is organized and designed by a best-in-class- shoreside team, with the goal of providing guests an open door to a world of exclusive experiences. On shore and on board, wellness experiences will be curated to encourage guests to enjoy the river and surrounding countryside with all their senses. In addition to treatment rooms for tailored massages and facials, Riverside Mozart‘s class-leading wellness center offers Finnish saunas and steam rooms as well as a swimming pool and jacuzzi.

From a culinary perspective, Riverside aims to provide the best cuisine and wine cellar on the water and will place an emphasis on the freshness and quality of all ingredients on board. The ship’s crew of trained sommeliers and bartenders will have access to special regional and global wines as well as some of the best spirits available, with a wine cellar that is unparalleled even among the best restaurants on land. As the ship glides through the different regions of the Danube, the cuisine evolves to offer the most local of flavors and experiences. Four onboard restaurants, including Bistro, Blue, and Waterside, ensure variety to suit the tastes of every traveler. Exclusive dinners are also offered in the ship’s acclaimed Vintage Room, where wine selection by the head sommelier set the tone for the restaurant's unique tasting menu.

Those familiar with MS Mozart will already know its ship class as the most luxurious on Europe’s rivers. Double the width of most comparable ships, Mozart is home to the same number of cabins translating to more space in all public spaces and within every one of its 81 cabins, with accommodations ranging from 215 – 883 square feet. Throughout the vessel, guests will find a modern, sophisticated design and luxurious amenities. Riverside also offers guests added flexibility, with the option to choose fully inclusive or a la carte experiences.

In addition to the Gerlach family’s deep hospitality experience, Riverside will benefit from the leadership of a carefully curated team of cruise industry veterans, many of whom have come from Crystal. The ship’s Captain Béla Burján, will serve alongside Hotel Manager, Sonja Gruber; Chef de Cuisine, Johannes Bär; and Ulrike Nehls, who is Director of Land Operations. Jennifer Halboth has been appointed as CEO of Riverside Collection, Americas, and is joined by Michelle Rodriguez Suarez the brand’s Director of East Coast & Key Account Sales.
