Crystal Symphony Diverted To The Bahamas

Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Symphony went to the Bahamas after an arrest warrant was issued for the ship over a dispute over an unpaid fuel bill.

Last week, the cruise line announced it was pausing its operations after its parent company, Genting Hong Kong filed for bankruptcy.

In a statement, Crystal Cruises said:
“Thank you for your inquiry regarding Crystal Symphony whose most recent cruise was extended by one day with disembarkation taking place yesterday morning.”

It continued: “Guests were provided overnight accommodations Saturday evening with the ship’s exemplary service and amenities offered and they were well cared for on board.  Crystal arranged ground transportation to local airports, as well as PortMiami. This end to the cruise was not the conclusion to our guests’ vacation we originally planned for.”

It adds: “Crystal’s guests are among the most passionate and loyal in the cruise industry and we thank them for their patience and understanding during this challenging time.

And it concludes: “Please note that we are not able to comment on pending legal matters at this time.”
