The Crystal Serenity, Crystal Symphony, and the Crystal Cruises brand have have been purchased by the travel group owned by Geoffrey Kent and Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio's holding company, A&K Travel Group Ltd.
Both ships are scheduled to resume service in 2023 after extensive refurbishment. We are excited to see the finished product that results from the collaboration of Manfredi (family started Silversea cruises) and Jeffrey Kent of Abercrombie & Kent, a company known for curating amazing tailor-made experiences. We will continue to share updates as we receive them.
For our former loyal Crystal passengers ready for a cruise before the refurbishment is complete, a few luxury cruise providers are running promotions for you.
Seabourn will recognize your Crystal Society Level and benefits in their Seabourn Club as well as offer a 5% cruise fare discount on your first booking. Contact your Wallace Pierson Travel Advisor to learn about what that looks like for you.
The brand new Explora Journeys 992 passenger vessels are definitely an option to consider. Right now you can receive a "Journey Experience Credit" (shipboard credit) of up to $1000 Euros per suite when combining Virtuoso Amenities with our Wallace Pierson Travel Exclusive Offer.
