It’s been an eventful couple of weeks. While still soaring from the thrill of spreading our wings with the launch of Crystal Skye, it was time to celebrate once again as Crystal River Cruises’ brand new “Rhine Class” of luxury river ships embarked in Europe with the christening of Crystal Bach.
The ceremony in Rüdesheim, Germany was an affair worthy of the ship’s masterful name, as Crystal Bach’s godmother, German soprano Anna-Maria Kaufmann, serenaded our newest fleet member with a moving performance of “Air” by, appropriately, Johann Sebastian Bach. We invite you to relive the festivities and the sentiments of our CEO & President, Edie Rodriguez, whose affection and pride for the Crystal Family shone as she addressed guests around the world, with this beautiful glimpse into her christening celebration.
Now, we would like to introduce you to Crystal Bach, in all her luxuriously elegant, all-balcony, all-suite, butler-serviced, innovatively appointed glory. Please enjoy this sneak peek of the sophisticated beauty of our very first brand new river ship.
Crystal River Cruises introduced an entirely new class of luxury, not only along the rivers of Europe, but throughout the river cruising industry. As the first – and until her sister ships join her – the only all-suite, all-balcony river ship boasting every category of accommodations perched above the water line, Crystal Bach is set to welcome you aboard the European voyage of your dreams. A voyage you can truly find nowhere else in the world.
