Anna-Marie Kaufmann has been named as godmother of Crystal Bach, the first custom-built river ship by Crystal Cruises.
Crystal Bach embarked on its first sailing from Amsterdam on August 13.
Kaufmann, a renowned soprano, is due to sing at the christening as well as perform her bottle-breaking duties in Rüdesheim, Germany, on August 20.
“It is an honour 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,” says Crystal CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez. “Naturally, Anna-Maria’s remarkable career in classical music and passion for her chosen homeland are befitting for this stunning ship but, beyond that, her grace and internationally recognisable charm are representative of the elegance found aboard a Crystal river voyage.”
