Internationally acclaimed singer and star of stage and screen, Rachel York, will enchant Crystal River Cruises’ guests with her musical talents and engaging personality aboard Crystal Ravel’s September 1, 2019 sailing along the Danube River. 

During the seven-day voyage, York will treat guests to a special performance and will share experiences from her colourful career during Q&A sessions as part of the company’s popular “Crystal on Broadway” programming. York is also godmother to sister ship Crystal Debussy and performed at her 2018 inauguration.

“This region of Europe is overflowing with musical and artistic heritage, which will only be enhanced by Rachel’s incredible talents on board,” says Karen Christensen, Crystal’s senior vice president and managing director, Australia & New Zealand.  “As Rachel is part of the Crystal Family, we are thrilled to welcome her back on board and share this intimate musical experience with our guests.” 

York’s extensive credits include “Head Over Heels,” a musical comedy produced by Gwyneth Paltrow, Jordan Roth and others, and featuring the distinctive hits of the GO-GOs, the first all-female rock band. Her stage portfolio has also included critically acclaimed Broadway turns in “City of Angels,” “Victor/Victoria” with Crystal Serenity godmother Dame Julie Andrews and “Disaster! The Musical.” She has given award-winning performances in “Anything Goes,” “Kiss Me Kate,” “Camelot” and “The 101 Dalmatians Musical,” and many others. On screen, she is best known for her roles in “One Fine Day” featuring George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer and the starring role in the Lucille Ball biopic “Lucy.”

The voyage sails round-trip from Vienna, exploring Esztergom and Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Krems, Melk and Linz, Austria. During the itinerary, guests can explore the sites and stories pivotal to the region’s history of creative genius. A full-day excursion to Salzburg, a visit to Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace, an exclusive Signature Event at Budapest’s glass-domed Buda Castle courtyard and dozens of other enriching experiences illustrate the romantic and storied legacies.
