VOYAGE ALERT! CRUISES FEATURING BANGKOK, THAILAND

Voyage Alert! Cruises featuring Bangkok, Thailand
Posted 01/29/14

IMPORTANT ALERT !  Itinerary Change/Update for voyages calling on Bangkok, Thailand


Due to the recent political and social unrest in the greater Bangkok area, we have revised our 2014 itineraries to avoid the area, addressing safety and security concerns.

The Thai government has declared a 60-day state of emergency and the U.S. State Department has issued a Travel Alert. Given the unpredictable and growing violence, we felt it prudent to make this decision now, reserve our berths to accommodate the changes, and, advise everyone as soon as possible. Please be assured that under no circumstances will we risk our guests’ or crew’s safety to maintain a published itinerary.  As always, the safety and security of our guests and crew is of paramount importance to Crystal Cruises.

To follow are more information on the affected itineraries, by ship, and Crystal Cruises’ current plans:
