Godmother announced for new Crystal Mozart

The godmother of Crystal River Cruises first river ship has been named as Ms Elisabeth Gürtler. Ms Gürtler is the managing director of Vienna’s Hotel Sacher, and she is also acting director of the Spanish Riding School. She will name the re-imagined Crystal Mozart in a glittering ceremony on 11 July, on the banks of the Danube.

Crystal Mozart will embark on her maiden voyage from Vienna on 13th July, calling at Dürnstein, Melk and Linz followed by an overnight stay in Passau. Bratislava in Slovakia is next, then a second overnight in Budapest, Hungary; and ending with two nights back in Vienna.

As godmother of Crystal Mozart, Ms Gürtler joins an esteemed group of Crystal matriarchs that have come before, including:

  • Mary Tyler Moore (Crystal Harmony)
  • Dame Angela Lansbury (Crystal Symphony)
  • Dame Julie Andrews (Crystal Serenity)
  • Lady Gaenor Meakes (Crystal Esprit)

“It is fitting that such a pillar of the Viennese community as Ms Gürtler would join the Crystal family as we expand into the stunning waterways of Austria and the surrounding areas,” says Edie Rodriguez, Crystal’s CEO and president. “As we prepare to embark with Crystal Mozart on her journeys along the Danube River, we are honoured to do so with the blessing of one of the region’s most respected citizens, who also shares Crystal’s commitment to a superior standard of excellence in global travel.”
