Is Crystal Cruises out of business? Crystal Cruises reportedly shut down at least its U.S. operations earlier this year after an arrest warrant had been issued for the Crystal Symphony due to unpaid fuel bills. The cruise line had previously suspended sailings for several months after its parent company, Genting Hong Kong, declared bankruptcy in January.
Why is Crystal Cruises shutting down? Sources say that it appears that there is no longer funding for Crystal’s brand operations, and that Genting itself may be liquidated rather than reorganized. That said, on February 8, Genting Hong Kong said that provisional liquidators had been appointed for its Asian-based Dream Cruises.
Are Crystal Cruises in trouble? According to the company website, Crystal Cruises said it has suspended voyages for its Ocean and Expedition ships through April 2022. The company also said it has paused its call center until further notice.
