Crystal Cruises announced an extension of its pause in operations until the end of May.

The line’s latest polar-class expedition megayacht Crystal Endeavor is rescheduled to debut in August 2021.

The latest cancellations affect a total of 14 European itineraries for Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.

Crystal Cruises said the constantly evolving developments related to the pandemic, including border restrictions and quarantine policies, among others, continued to determine those hard decisions.

The company sent a letter to the crew informing them about the latest cancellations saying they were greatly anticipating the day they could resume sailings and welcome Crystal Family - passengers and crew - back aboard.

"While our team focuses wholly on doing this as soon as possible, the challenges posed by COVID-19 continue to affect when this can happen."

Because of this, the company canceled all cruises through May 2021 (Crystal Esprit, Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity) and through August 2021 (Crystal Endeavor).

The itinerary planning team was "in process of creating a series of new 10-night voyages set to explorer the Baltic, Norway, the Scottish, and Irish isles, Iceland and Faroe Islands this summer from mid-July through mid-September."

Details are expected to be announced in early-February.
