A&K Travel Group, a travel firm owned by Heritage, has bought the luxury cruise vessels Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.

The ships will be refurbished and relaunched under the “Crystal Cruises” name in 2023.

“The idea of combining the unparalleled onboard service that Crystal Cruises is known for with the extraordinary tailor-made experiences Abercrombie & Kent has been providing for our guests for the past 60 years, fills me with excitement, enthusiasm and pride,” added Geoffrey Kent, co-chairman of A&K Travel Group.

Paul Hastings LLP acted for A&K Travel Group. Callenders Law acted for A&K Travel Group in respect of Bahamian law, while HFW and Stephenson Harwood LLP provided maritime law expertise.
