Crystal to suspend operations

Crystal has announced that it will suspend ocean and expedition voyages until April 2022, and river operations until May 2022.

The cruise line’s parent company Genting Hong Kong filed a wind-up petition earlier this week, saying that it would run out of cash by the end of the month.

The cruise operator, which also owns Dream Cruises and Star Cruises, asked the Supreme Court of Bermuda to appoint liquidators to restructure the company “in order to preserve and protect the core assets”.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony will complete their current voyages in the Caribbean on January 30 and January 22 respectively, while Crystal Endeavor will complete its sailing in Antarctica on January 30 in Ushuaia.

Passengers booked onto cancelled sailings will be provided with a full refund.

Jack Anderson, Crystal’s president, said: “This was an extremely difficult decision but a prudent one given the current business environment and recent developments with our parent company, Genting Hong Kong.”

“Crystal has been synonymous with luxury cruising for more than 30 years and we look forward to welcoming back our valued guests when we resume operations. We wish to thank our guests and travel advisors for their incredible support during these ongoing challenging times.”
