Crystal Cruises announces ambitious three-year plan


On 19 July 2015 Crystal Cruises announced its expansion plans for the next three years, which will see the introduction of new ships and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to the company.

The announcements were made aboard the line’s annual President’s Cruise on Crystal Serenity and Chairman’s Cruise on Crystal Symphony respectively by Crystal’s president and CEO, Edie Rodriguez, and Chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay.

In his address to guests the Chairman stated, “Our intent is to make Crystal Cruises the core of what will become the world’s premier luxury hospitality and lifestyle brand portfolio, not only for the immediate future but for years to come.”

In her announcement on Crystal Serenity, Rodriguez commented, “We continue to think bigger, aiming to create unparalleled luxury experiences and adventures for our loyal and new guests, who – like Crystal – continue to seek broader horizons and new perspectives on the world.” She added, “We are ecstatic to continue pioneering new areas of luxury travel. Crystal’s newly expanded fleet will truly be travellers’ passport to virtually the entire world.”

The timeline of new Crystal products begins at the end of 2015, with Crystal Esprit embarking on her maiden voyage as the first of the Crystal Yacht Cruises programme. 2017 will see the growth of Crystal River Cruises and Crystal Luxury Air, which features mostly 28-day itineraries that visit 10-12 remote and/or sought-after locales. The following year will see the addition of three new Crystal Exclusive Class ships.
