Anna-Maria Kaufmann to Christen Crystal Bach in Rüdesheim, Germany

Famed soprano vocalist and beloved German performer, Anna-Maria Kaufmann, has been chosen by Crystal River Cruises as the godmother of Crystal Bach, the company’s newly-built “Rhine Class” river ship.

 Crystal Bach embarked on her maiden voyage from Amsterdam, on 13 August, and will be christened by Kaufmann during her call to Rüdesheim, Germany, on 20 August 2017.

Kaufmann’s decades-long career has spanned the globe, bringing her from her native Edmonton, Alberta to some of the world’s most prestigious stages and events.

 As Crystal Bach’s godmother, she will bless the ship during the christening ceremony, and serenade her and attending guests with her own special performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Air”.

“It is an honor to have one of Germany’s most gifted and cherished talents christen Crystal Bach as she officially embarks on the Rhine as part of the award-winning Crystal fleet,” said Crystal CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez. “Naturally, Anna-Maria’s remarkable career in classical music and passion for her chosen homeland are apropos for this stunning ship, but beyond that, her grace and internationally recognizable charm are representative of the elegance found aboard a Crystal river voyage.”

Crystal Bach is the first of four Crystal “Rhine Class” river ships to debut on the rivers of Europe, joining Crystal Mozart as part of the Crystal River Cruises fleet.

Sailing 10 and 14-day voyages predominantly along the Rhine River, she will call in medieval towns and modern hubs in Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany.

Rhine Class

Crystal’s “Rhine Class” river ships are the only all-balcony, all-suite vessels in Europe, with every category of accommodation perched above the waterline. All four river ships will offer butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, Panoramic Balcony-Windows, walk-in closets and dual vanity in the bathrooms in most categories, Etro robes and slippers, wall-mounted flat-screen HD TVs, and Nespresso machines.
