Crystal has opened up reservations for the recently announced Crystal Serenity Bahamian cruises, becoming the first cruise ship to homeport in The Bahamas and return to cruising the Americas. The voyages also mark the first return to service for Crystal’s Ocean fleet.
The seven-night voyages round-trip from Nassau or Bimini begins July 3, 2021, and July 4, 2021, respectively.
According to Crystal, the all-Bahamas itineraries eliminate the risk of border closures between countries and offer close-to-home options for North American travelers eager to begin traveling again.
For Crystal Serenity’s new voyages, the Extended Land and Hotel Programs include Nassau’s SLS Baha Mar and Hilton Resorts World Bimini. The pre- and post-cruise hotel programs in Nassau and Bimini start at $359 and $299 per guest, respectively, including transfers between Crystal Serenity, the resort properties, and the airports and all taxes and resort fees.
Cruise fares for the new Luxury Bahamas Escapes cruises start at $1,999 per guest, including $500 Book Now Savings and $500 air savings along with Best Available Savings by category. Guests will also receive a $125 per person “As You Wish” shipboard credit.
The company’s Crystal Confidence program offers a no-money-down deposit window until April 5, 2021, with a reduced deposit of 15% due at that time as part of its Easy Book program. Travelers with Future Cruise Credits and Future Cruise Payments may redeem them on these sailings.
Crystal recently announced that guests must be fully inoculated with a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to boarding any Crystal ship.
