Crystal Cruises officially winds down operations


Troubled Crystal Cruises has officially confirmed its closure, with the company’s 238 employees at its Miami base laid off and operations wound down.

Crystal Cruises has filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act with Florida authorities and has concluded the lay-offs.

Interim president and CEO Jack Anderson said: “This was an extremely difficult decision but a prudent one given the current business environment and recent developments with our parent company, Genting Hong Kong.”
