Crystal has cancelled all Mediterranean sailings aboard Crystal Esprit from 1 August until 26 September 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic situation.
The luxury cruise line said it made the call with “deep regret”.
Crystal cancelled its last batch of Crystal Esprit departures in early February 2021, but has since announced the return to service of its ocean ships to the Caribbean, with Crystal Serenity to operate from the Bahamas and Crystal Symphony from Antigua and Barbuda.
“We know this is extremely disappointing news. All affected guests, and their travel advisers, are being contacted directly with details of this cancellation along with their compensation and rebooking options,” Crystal said.
The company encouraged impacted guests to speak with their travel advisor to assist with choosing an alternative Crystal experience.
Crystal Esprit‘s first sailing listed online is a seven-night cruise on 10 October 2021 from Dubrovnik to Athens. After a series of Bodrum sailings to the Greek Isle, Turkey and Cyprus, the yacht will reposition to Mahe in the Seychelles, via Israel, Egypt and Jordan, where it will be based from mid-December through to early April 2022.
