Port Everglades bags Crystal calls beginning in late 2017

Port Everglades bags Crystal calls beginning in late 2017
Port Everglades is welcoming the return of Crystal Cruises' luxury ships beginning in October 2017.

The line currently sails occasionally from PortMiami.

'Fort Lauderdale is an ideal fit for our ships, itineraries and discerning guests, with its close proximity to an international airport and reputation for outstanding service that mirrors Crystal's own,' Crystal president and ceo Edie Rodriguez said. 'With these things in mind, we are relocating select fall sailings and look forward to working with Port Everglades to expand our itineraries in this market.'

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony will operate a total of eight sailings to and from Port Everglades beginning Oct. 27 next year.

'We are already working with Crystal Cruises' outstanding team to ensure every sailing from Port Everglades is exceptional,' said Steven Cernak, chief executive and port director, Port Everglades.

Crystal last sailed from Port Everglades in 2006.
