Crystal River Cruises has christened Crystal Bach, the first of its four newbuild Rhine-class river ships.

The ceremony took place on Sunday, August 20 in Rüdesheim, Germany.

Crystal’s CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez, presided over the ceremony.

The ship’s godmother, German opera star Anna-Maria Kaufmann, christened the ship with the traditional blessing and the breaking of a champagne bottle.

“The enthusiasm surrounding this groundbreaking ship has been tremendous already, and we could not be prouder to welcome her to the award-winning Crystal River fleet,” said Rodriguez. Addressing the crowd in attendance, she elaborated on the innovative approach to creating Crystal Bach and her upcoming sister ships. “The fact that she is Crystal’s first-ever new build river ship means that we had the opportunity to go beyond the best and create a luxury river cruise experience that is truly unprecedented. She is the first – and, until her sisters join her – the ONLY all-balcony, all-suite river ship.”
