Crystal River Cruises announces that Hungarian producer Mariann Peller will be the godmother of Crystal Ravel, the company’s fourth new ‘Rhine Class’ river ship. Born in Budapest, Peller is renowned for creating the hit Hungarian television show “Virtuosos,” the world’s first classical music talent show, as well as founding the Young Virtuosos Foundation, which promotes the study of classical music for young artists.

Crystal Ravel will be christened in Budapest on Wednesday, July 11 during a traditional ceremony, which will include the blessing from Peller and a performance by the Young Virtuosos artists. Crystal will also make a donation to the Young Virtuosos Foundation in support of its ongoing work with young artists.

Crystal Ravel’s christening ceremony will take place during the ship’s visit to Budapest as part of her July 5 voyage from Vienna, allowing guests to participate in the festivities. Crystal will also broadcast the ceremony via Facebook Live on Crystal Cruises’ Facebook page.

The 106-guest ship sails itineraries between Budapest, Basel, Vienna and Nuremburg along the Danube and Rhine rivers, visiting destinations in Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Slovakia. Crystal River Cruises’ new vessels are the river industry’s first and only all-balcony, all-suite, all-butler vessels in Europe, with every category of accommodation perched above the waterline.
