Cruise & Ferry Review - Autumn/Winter 2023

The Port of Thessaloniki in Greece is to become the homeport for Crystal Symphony from 2025. Crystal is the first global cruise line to use the Mediterranean port for full turnarounds. “We are excited to host Crystal Symphony at the Port of Thessaloniki,” said Theodora Riga, chief commercial officer and director of strategic communications. “This significant development opens a new chapter for us, further enhancing its position in the international cruise sector.” Crystal has also added Thessaloniki to its 2024 calling destinations. Crystal Symphony embarked on its first sailing under the guardianship of the A&K Travel Group from Athens on 1 September 2023.
