Crystal Cruises launches three new brands

Cruise line also launches air product using Dreamliner
Crystal Cruises is launching three new cruise brands, as well as a special air product using its own Boeing 787 Dreamliner fully configured for business-class travel.
Making the announcement together, Crystal’s president and chief executive Edie Rodriguez and chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay said the first of the new cruise classes would take shape with the delivery of Crystal Esprit in November 2015.
The 62-passenger ship will embark on its maiden voyage on December 23 under the new all-inclusive Crystal Yacht Cruises brand, sailing regional itineraries of seven days in length with the inaugural cruise in Seychelles.
Throughout 2016, 2017 and early 2018, Crystal Esprit cruises will be offered for the Seychelles islands, Dubai and Adriatic coast.
Meanwhile, the launch of Crystal River Cruises will take place in 2017 before Crystal Exclusive Class launches in 2018 when the operator takes delivery of the first of three exclusive-class ships.
Crystal is also preparing to launch Crystal Luxury Air in 2017 when it takes delivery of a Dreamliner which will be configured to fly 60 customers. Itineraries will be roughly 28 days in length and visit between 10 and 12 destinations with top accommodation and entertainment.
“Our intent is to make Crystal Cruises the core of what will become the world’s premier luxury hospitality and lifestyle brand portfolio, not only for the immediate future but for years to come,” Tan Sri Lim said.
