Two Crystal Cruises for sale as Bahamas sets auction date

After being held in Freeport, Bahamas for months, the Crystal Symphony and the Crystal Serenity are being put up for sale.

The Supreme Court Commercial Division in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas announced that the ships would go up for auction next month. The cruise ships are currently being inspected, and prospective owners will need to submit their bids, along with a 10 percent deposit, by June 7.

In the notice announcing the auction, the court also said that if there was a winning bidder, they would be informed by June 14. They would then have a week to finish the acquisition and take ownership of the ships.

In January, the Crystal Symphony and the Crystal Serenity were both on voyages with passengers onboard when they diverted to the Bahamas in order to avoid seizure from authorities over unpaid fuel bills. Authorities eventually took hold of the cruise ships.

Since then, they have remained in the Bahamas after Crystal Cruises terminated its operations. The cruise line’s parent company is Genting Hong Kong, which had to file for bankruptcy in January.

While Genting’s assets are being sold off, the company has been able to resurrect its Dream Cruises line, under the newly-formed Resorts World Cruises brand.
