Crystal Cruise Line goes belly up…

Crystal Suspending All Operations After Parent Company Files for Liquidation
Crystal Cruises is suspending all operations until at least the Spring.

In a letter to advisors sent on Wednesday, Crystal, which is owned by Genting Hong Kong, announced that it has suspended all its ocean and expedition operations through April 29, 2022, and river operations through the end of May 2022.

The company said that the suspension is an “opportunity to evaluate the current state of business" and "examine various options moving forward.”

All of the ships currently sailing—Crystal Serenity, Crystal Symphony, and Crystal Endeavor—will finish their current journeys, the last of which will end on Feb. 4. After that, Crystal will enter an indefinite suspension and an unclear future.
