Crystal Cruises shifts ports to Greece instead
Crystal Cruises has cancelled port calls in Turkey, citing “ongoing security concerns”. The move comes after 10 tourists were killed in a bomb blast in Istanbul.
Crystal said it would be rerouting two of its upcoming voyages on Crystal Symphony on April 24 and May 1, which had been set to call at Istanbul and Kusadasi, replacing these ports with Greek destinations.
“The safety and peace of mind of our guests are our primary concerns and we do not take any risks with either,” says Crystal’s chief executive and president, Edie Rodriguez.
“The itinerary changes will allow our guests to continue with their planned holidays in the same standard of excellence and luxury, without the added worry of security in a particular destination.”
Turkish ports of call scheduled for April and November on board Crystal’s new luxury yacht, Crystal Esprit, will also be changed to Greek ports. For both sailings, pre-reserved Crystal Adventures will automatically be cancelled, while the line says it is in the process of developing new shore excursions.
