Hold on to your hats, a new cruise ship is about to be christened!
And guess what? You can watch it live TODAY!
Crystal Cruises will officially christen Crystal Debussy, the third of its four newly-built river ships (which are all identical, BTW, so once you’ve seen one christening you’ve seen ’em all) in Amsterdam today in a VIP ceremony.
The christening will feature Crystal president and CEO, Tom Wolber, and the ship’s godmother, Broadway star Rachel York, and will be hosted by Vice President & Managing Director of Crystal River Cruises, Walter Littlejohn. Now that’s a VIP guest list.
And the event is being live streamed for your viewing pleasure!
Crystal will livestream the event via a Facebook Live feed on its Crystal Cruises Facebook page, meaning luxury travel enthusiasts from all over the world will be able to welcome the newest member of the luxurious river cruise line.
Catch it at 2:30AM TODAY! A recording will also be available for viewing after the broadcast on the cruise line’s Facebook Page if you miss it for some inconceivable reason.
Wolber, York and Littlejohn will be guests sailing on Crystal Debussy’s “Splendours of the Rhine” voyage – and we’re pretty mad we didn’t get an invite, TBH, because this itinerary looks ahh-mazing.
The 106-guest Crystal Debussy embarked on her maiden voyage along the Rhine River on April 9. Throughout 2018 and 2019, the ship will sail routes of seven and 10 days between Amsterdam and Basel along the Rhine and Moselle rivers, visiting Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
Crystal’s new river vessels are all-suite, all-butler (!) vessels with every category of accommodation perched above the waterline. These luxury suites offer Crystal’s acclaimed 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 amenities, robes and slippers, and wall-mounted flat-screen HD TVs. Oh, and the cruise line was voted ‘Best River Cruise Line’ by the readers of Travel + Leisure in the magazine’s 2017 World’s Best Awards.
Additional features include farm-to-table cuisine in multiple, open-seating eateries: the elegant Waterside Restaurant; namesake Bistro cafés; and the exclusive Vintage Room; as well as the Palm Court for entertainment, enrichment presentations and sweeping views of the countryside.
To get to know the ship even better, watch the christening live today.
