MIAMI — Crystal Cruises has resumed operations from New York City, with the Crystal Symphony embarking last week for a series of roundtrip voyages from Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
The ship departed Sept. 24 from New York for its ‘Luxury Bermuda Escapes’ itinerary, the first in the series of nine 7-night cruises sailing from Manhattan every Friday through Nov. 19, 2021. This series follows Crystal Symphony’s Luxury Bermuda Escapes series out of Boston in late August and early September.
“We are delighted to sail once again from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal, offering our guests the chance to experience Crystal’s unmatched luxury, Michelin-level cuisine and genuine personalized service on voyages close to home,” said Jack Anderson, president of Crystal. “Travellers can enjoy the stunning pink-sand beaches and abundant outdoor pursuits of Bermuda with peace of mind, knowing that their health and safety is our number one priority and our comprehensive Crystal Clean+ measures and vaccination requirement assure them a safe and pleasurable trip.”
Crystal Symphony will set sail with all guests and crew fully vaccinated, and with guests and crew following all local health guidelines when visiting Bermuda. It is also sailing with reduced capacity to offer guests even more space onboard.
In addition, Crystal recently announced that it is extending its current vaccine requirement for guests and crew through 2022.
All-inclusive fares for Crystal Symphony’s Luxury Bermuda Escapes start at US$1,999 per person when booked by Nov. 3, 2021. Guests have the option to extend their travels with a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay at The Pierre Hotel, a historic 5th Avenue landmark, or the Intercontinental New York Times Square, located within walking distance of the Broadway Theater District. Hotel stays include airport and ship transfers, breakfast daily, complimentary wi-fi and all hotel taxes and fees.
