The newly added sailings are part of the 10-night Luxury Caribbean Escapes of Crystal Symphony and offer vacationers the option of sailing roundtrip from either Philipsburg on 15 cruises beginning August 2, or the previously announced journeys departing roundtrip from St. Johns, Antigua and Barbuda, on 15 sailings beginning August 5.
All of the line’s 10-night Luxury Caribbean Escapes, including a holiday trip, will explore Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Maarten, and the BVI-British Virgin Islands. Reservations for the new 15 cruises from St. Maarten open on May 12.
The addition of Saint Maarten as a departure port expands the air options for passengers as major U.S. cities offer airlift into the country. The new itineraries, together with the 10-night Luxury Iceland Expeditions onboard Crystal Endeavor and the 7-night Luxury Bahamas Escapes onboard Crystal Serenity, comprise the resumption of service of 97% of Crystal’s ocean fleet.
Crystal Symphony’s Luxury Caribbean Escapes offer overnights in St. John’s, Philipsburg, and Bridgetown (Barbados), with each locale boasting its own highlights for Crystal passengers.
Designed with abundant social and personal space throughout the cruise ship, Crystal Symphony is expected to return to sailing with reduced capacity.
