Crystal Commemorates Its 30th Anniversary
Crystal celebrated its 30th anniversary on 24JUL, 2020. Crystal Harmony, the first Crystal ship to sail, sailed from San Francisco to Alaska on 24JUL, 1990. Since that time, Crystal Cruises has welcomed two additional ocean ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, to the fleet as the company said goodbye to Crystal Harmony in 2005.
Genting Hong Kong purchased the company in 2015, and launched Crystal Yacht Cruises the following December with Crystal Esprit, followed by Crystal River Cruises in 2016.
“I want to thank all the members of the Crystal Family over the years who had the passion and dedication to create this company, and the vision for all the possibilities it represented, and our parent company, who has continued to empower this vision and steadfastly supports us every day,” said Crystal’s president and CEO, Tom Wolber.
Crystal is celebrating the occasion by hosting a special 30th Anniversary edition of Friday Nights at the Galaxy as part of its Crystal@Home: A Virtual Cruise Experience series of digital programming.
The broadcast will begin tonight (July 24) at 6 p.m., Eastern Time on the Crystal Cruises Facebook page, and will be available for viewing following the broadcast on Facebook and on www.crystalcruises.com.
