COVID-19 claims local Crystal Cruises operations.
Crystal Cruises has just announced the closure of its Sydney-based regional office, and the pending departure of the cruise line’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director Australasia, Karen Christensen.
Christensen said the decision was being made with “deep regret,” with the operational, sales and marketing duties of Crystal’s Sydney office to transition to the Genting Cruise Lines team in Sydney, under the direction of Michael Goh, President of Dream Cruises and Head of International Sales for Genting Cruise Lines.
Christensen will remain with the company for 90 days to assist with the transition.
“We want to thank our trade partners for their continuing support, as they have been incredibly supportive and truly share our passion for the World of Crystal,” she said.
