York – whose latest project on Broadway is “Head Over Heels” – has performed as part of the line’s Crystal on Broadway program, which brings performers and producers from Broadway shows to Crystal’s fleet for special performances and presentations. She will next perform on Crystal Mahler’s 28MAY cruise out of Amsterdam to Budapest.
“Rachel’s tremendous talents and charm transcends demographics and connects with audiences throughout the world,” said Tom Wolber, president and CEO of Crystal. “We are so pleased she is part of the Crystal family, as her grace and passion for excellence are representative of the experience found aboard Crystal voyages.”
“It has been a privilege to be part of the Crystal Family through the Crystal on Broadway program and I am honoured to be the Godmother of Crystal Debussy,” York said. “To fulfill such an enduring tradition and represent a ship of such style and elegance – as well as a crew dedicated to superb service and experiences day in and day out – is truly my pleasure.”
The 106-guest Crystal Debussy embarked on her maiden voyage along the Rhine River on 9APR. 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.
