Making cruises safer for all
By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva
Continuing to help keep passengers and crew safe from contracting Covid19, Crystal Cruises is extending its requirement for proof of vaccinations through December 2022. This is particularly beneficial for folks who enjoy going ashore hassle-free during across multi-country itineraries.
“The health and safety of our guests and crew is paramount to everything we do at Crystal Cruises,” explains Walter Littlejohn, Crystal River Cruises’ senior vice president and managing director. “ “Extending the vaccination requirement provides guests with health and safety information and assurances they need to plan future travels.”
Crystal Clean protocols
Crystal continues to be a leader in its proactive response to COVID-19 with using protocols taken from the latest data and recommendations by health experts. The vaccine requirement augments the company’s comprehensive Crystal Clean+ health and safety protocols. These includes taking COVID-19 tests at embarkation for both guests and crew. It also encompasses , temperature checks when returning from ashore and a nimble mask policy and social distancing.
It’s pretty easy to practice social distancing on Crystal’s spacious ships and riverboats. The ships also offer lots of tables for two in its a la carte restaurants, where guests dine when and with whom they want. Additionally, fresh air ventilation systems ensure all guest suites and public areas feature fresh circulating air.
Crystal’s award-winning Rhine-Class River ships accommodate just 106 guests. They are also the river cruising industry’s first and only all-balcony, all-suite, all-butler vessels in Europe. All suites boast Panoramic Balcony-Windows™ and walk-in closets, and dual vanity in the bathrooms are featured in most categories.
Crystal Cruises provides the ultimate in shipboard luxury with suites, butlers, superb cuisine and top service.
