CELESTYAL Cruises has scaled back its Cuba operations from year-round to “a seasonal Winter operation with Spring touches” in 2017/18.
Celestyal Crystal will be in Cuba until Mar 2018, after which it will replace Celestyal Majesty on the three- and four-day Iconic Aegean Operation as of 30 Mar.
On 31 Apr Celestyal Crystal will begin operating the seven-day New Aegean itinerary.
Passengers with confirmed bookings on the cancelled sailings can receive a full refund or transfer their booking to another departure until 05 Mar 2018.
The 2018/19 Cuba deployment will be announced shortly but will be a seasonal winter operation.
Last year the company celebrated its fourth year of operation in Cuba ( CW 08 Dec).
