Die US-Luxusreederei und Genting Group-Tochter Crystal Cruises hat sich laut amerikanischen Medienberichten zu den Nachrichten um die Muttergesellschaft geäußert. Dort heißt es, so die Berichte, dass nicht geplant sei, den Betrieb einzustellen und das die vertraglichen Verpflichtungen erfüllt würden.
Statement von Crystal Cruises im Wortlaut:
„Crystal’s parent company, Genting Hong Kong, is engaged in a financial restructuring and fundraising exercise to address liquidity issues that resulted from its global fleet not operating because of COVID-19.
It is important to understand that the company is not going out of business. Whatever option our parent company pursues, it will allow Crystal to operate its business. Additionally, we have always been committed to honoring our contractual obligations with guests and travel partners, including the processing of refunds.
While we have extended our suspension of global voyages until the end of the year, we are working with government and health authorities in our key markets to resume sailing when it is safe to do so and we look forward to welcoming our guests back on board at that time.“
