Wishing You Warmth, Wonder and Good Health
On behalf of the Crystal Family the world over, I want to take this opportunity to send to each of you and your families my best wishes for peace, comfort, good health and joy during this holiday season.
While we are ending a year unlike any we have experienced before, we are looking to 2021 with optimism for the brighter days ahead. We share in the world’s hopefulness that news of Covid-19 vaccines being distributed globally may begin to right the difficult course we all have been navigating in both our personal and professional lives. The challenges of this year have impacted all of us, not just Crystal and the travel industry overall, but each and every individual around the world. Our heartfelt thoughts remain with those who have been most affected during this difficult year.
For Crystal, 2020 was not the 30th anniversary year we had hoped to share with you; indeed, we are working through challenges we could never have ever envisioned. What remains constant for the coming year is our resolute commitment to restoring the three decades of your trust in us as we look forward to welcoming you back aboard.
All of us at Crystal continue to be filled with gratitude for the community of travelers who share our passion for exploring the world. This sense of family has kept us together in new and different ways, including our Crystal@Home programming which connects us through the things we love: delicious food and drink, enriching entertainment and a curiosity for the world’s most intriguing destinations.
Your entire Crystal Family – especially the officers, staff and crew aboard all of our ships – is eager to return to the seas of the world and the rivers of Europe with you on board, and we are working hard through these transitionary times to ensure all is ready when the time is right to set sail again. Until then, I am happy to share some warm memories of holidays past from the Crystal crew in the video below. We all wish you the wonder of the holiday season and a new year of health and happiness.
