“For decades, travelers have put their confidence in the renowned Crystal Experience and continue to do so with remarkable enthusiasm, and we are proud to introduce this new standard of excellence on Europe’s rivers.”
And with those words from our esteemed CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez, Crystal Mozart was officially welcomed to the Crystal fleet just hours ago in Vienna, Austria. During an elegant ceremony presided over by Master of Ceremonies and Crystal Mozart’s Entertainment Host Mark Farris, the only true luxury river ship in the world was christened by Godmother Elisabeth Gürtler. The ceremony was attended by Viennese dignitaries, our global travel partners, and several other VIPs, but most importantly, by some of the world’s most discerning travelers who chose to share in this special occasion with us. It is because of them, and you, that this day is possible, and we cannot wait to welcome you aboard our newest luxury vessel, Crystal Mozart, as she introduces a brand new standard of excellence to the rivers of Europe.
With Crystal Mozart’s christening, we also usher in the next era of Crystal, as Crystal River Cruises becomes the World’s Only Luxury River Cruise Line.
You may have caught the live stream video of the christening ceremony on our social media channels, but just in case you missed it, we’re thrilled to share some glimpses of the scene here. You’ll also find images of the just-unveiled interior that are certain to entice you aboard. Enjoy!
