Crystal Cruises Will Restart Sailing in the Bahamas on July 3
Crystal Cruises has announced that it is now planning to restart its sailings in the Bahamas starting on July 3.
The news makes Crystal one of the first major lines to give North American guests a chance to get on board a cruise ship after the COVID-19 yearlong shutdown.
Travel advisors reported Thursday that Crystal will celebrate its restart with a series of 16 seven-night, round-trip cruises from Nassau on Crystal Serenity starting on July 3, 2021.
“Like our guests, we have been eagerly looking forward to the day we can welcome them back on board, and we’re thrilled that this day will come in The Bahamas,” Jack Anderson, Crystal’s interim president, said in a news conference on Thursday.
“The new Bahamas Escapes cruises will allow travelers to enjoy luxury cruising now, as well as bring much-needed benefits to the local workforce, airlines, restaurants, retailers, and hotels for pre- and post-cruise stays. The launch of these cruises will also drive economic growth to The Bahamas, which, like other destinations around the world, has been negatively affected by the global pandemic,” he added.
