Crystal Serenity Begins Sailing in the Bahamas

Crystal Cruises will base its Crystal Serenity in the Bahamas for a series of Bahamas-only sailings that will include stops previously accessible only by private yacht, beginning July 3. A total of 16 Bahamas Escapes seven-day cruises are planned from July to October.

Passengers can embark every Saturday in Nassau or every Sunday in Bimini for roundtrip cruises that will sail to Harbour Island, Great Exuma, San Salvador and Long Island in the Bahamas.

Introductory prices for the cruises start at $1,999 per guest and the itineraries are on sale and may sell out quickly. The sailings will be capped at 900 passengers to ensure proper distancing.

Under recently announced Crystal health and safety protocols, all guests will need to be vaccinated at least two weeks prior to departure. They will also have to meet Bahamian entry requirements, which include proof of a negative PCR test with 72 hours of departure and a negative antigen test on arrival.

The new Bahamas cruises will replace Crystal Serenity’s previously scheduled sailings through Oct. 19. Guests who were booked on those have the option to transfer their bookings to one of the new cruises with a 115% credit for the fare paid.

Crystal Serenity carries far fewer guests than ships of similar size and will return to cruising with a reduced capacity. Hosted by the most awarded staff at sea, the all-inclusive Crystal Experience features Michelin-inspired cuisine, butler-serviced suites, verandah staterooms, and rejuvenating pursuits. Experience paradise at Harbour Island, Great Exuma, San Salvador Island, and Long Island or experience bliss at the Beach Club at Bimini, a private island oasis with a lagoon-style pool, hammocks, cabanas and cocktail lounge.

Reserve today to take advantage of:

  • All-inclusive Best Available Fares from $1,999 and a $125 “As You Wish” shipboard spending credit, both per guest
  • New-to-Crystal savings of 2.5%
  • Low Solo Fares from just 125%.

Crystal Confidence offers a No Money Down booking window through April 5, 2021, as well as other peace of mind assurances including reduced deposits, and relaxed final payment and cancellation terms.
