Crystal Exclusive

Three 100,000-ton all-suite all-balcony “Crystal Exclusive” class polar-capable ships, the first of which is due to enter service in late 2018, will carry 1,000 passengers each with a crew of 1,000, and include 48 private residences on the top deck.

Two weeks ago The Cruise Examiner disclosed that the Megastar Taurus was about to join Crystal Cruises, which it will now do in December as the Crystal Esprit. But now comes even bigger news. As well as introducing Crystal Yacht Cruises, the brand will inaugurate Crystal River Cruises as an upmarket all-inclusive river product and Crystal Luxury Air for air cruises. But that’s not all. The really big news is that Crystal is about to order three new all-inclusive ultra-luxury 1,000-berth 100,000-ton Crystal Exclusive class ships, starting in late 2018. Elsewhere, Haimark Line has announced that it will beat Carnival’s fathom brand to the re-commencement of cruise service from Florida to Cuba. Haimark begins service in February and fathom in May. And Norwegian is changing many of its alternative dining venues to a la carte pricing.
