Crystal Redeploys Crystal Symphony to Boston, New York, for Bermuda Sailings

Crystal Cruises announced that Crystal Symphony would be re-deploying to Boston and New York to homeport for its Luxury Bermuda Escapes itineraries, a series of seven-night voyages to Bermuda beginning in AUG 2021.

The first four voyages depart round-trip from Flynn Cruiseport, Boston, beginning on 22AUG 2021, featuring Sunday-to-Sunday itineraries, followed by nine voyages set to depart round-trip from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal beginning on 24SEP 2021, featuring Friday-to-Friday itineraries.

Crystal Symphony’s Luxury Bermuda Escapes will feature two full days and two nights in Bermuda.

“The Luxury Bermuda Escapes out of Boston and New York are a perfect fit, allowing us to welcome guests back on board to enjoy the service and amenities of the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line. Guests can enjoy a gorgeous destination famous for its pink sand beaches, turquoise seas, historic harbors and UNESCO World Heritage sites, paired with the ease and convenience of departing from these well-connected travel hubs both for those driving to the pier or those flying into the cities,” said Jack Anderson, Crystal’s president.
