Crystal Cruises Announces More Caribbean Home Ports as U.S. Cruising Flounders

Offering new homeports in the Caribbean for guests to embark the Crystal Symphony is a ‘Crystal’ clear sign the luxury line has decided not to sit around and wait for U.S cruising to sluggishly come back (hopefully) this summer.

New Caribbean Cruises

15 new Caribbean sailings departing from St. Maarten on board the 848 passenger capacity Crystal Symphony have been added to Crystal’s 2021 line-up.

The cruises already existed as 10 night round trip voyages from St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda, however, Crystal is also offering embarkation for the round trip to and from Philipsburg, St. Maarten.

“Crystal continues to be at the forefront of the return to cruising, and true to our Crystal hallmarks of Service, Space, Quality, Choices and Destinations,” stated Jack Anderson, president of Crystal. “Our goal is to ensure guests have abundant options to tailor their travel experiences to their personal tastes.”


The addition of making St Maarten an embarkation spot makes it much easier for guests to travel to the major flight hub in order to catch the ship.


Crystal’s 10-night Luxury Caribbean Escapes will whisk guests away in luxury to visit Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Maarten, and the British Virgin Islands including three overnight spots.

Crystal Symphony’s sister ocean ship, the 900 passenger Crystal Serenity is offering a similar operation from the Bahamas. Guests can board their 7 night Bahamian round trips from either Bimini or major gateway, Nassau.

Crystal Endeavor, Crystal’s 200 passenger exploration ship will also start sailing again in July, circumnavigating Iceland on 10 day round trips from Reykjavik while Crystal’s 62 passenger super yacht, Crystal Esprit will begin cruising again from Dubrovnik, Croatia in October.

Reservations for the new 15 voyages from St. Maarten open on May 12, 2021.
