Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Symphony has departed from Boston, Massachusetts, on the first cruise from the city since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ship will sail four seven-night ‘Luxury Bermuda Escapes’ cruises roundtrip from Boston on Sundays, which will be followed eight further voyages from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal beginning on 24 September.

“We are delighted Crystal Symphony has returned to service as the first cruise ship to restart cruising from Boston, now bound for the pink sands of Bermuda,” said Jack Anderson, president of Crystal Cruises. “This day is the culmination of months of anticipation and behind-the-scenes planning to ensure safe and meaningful travel experiences for our guests as we welcome them back home to Crystal. We are confident they are going to love the history, culture and abundant outdoor pursuits Bermuda offers, knowing that both Crystal’s and Bermuda’s stringent health protocols are in place to provide a safe and enjoyable experience.”

Crystal Symphony will call at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda. Guests will be able to go onshore to visit attractions on the island, including the Bermuda Railway Trail, the beaches of the South Shore and the Town of St. George, a Unecsco World Heritage site

Crystal Symphony is sailing with a reduced capacity, and all guests and crew onboard have been fully vaccinated. Crystal Cruises has also implemented new Crystal Clean+ hygiene protocols, which are updated based on changing recommendations from local and global authorities.
