Crystal Cruise UK Agent Should Get "Stiff Upper Lip" Award
Edwina Lonsdale feels it's too early and too fluid for anyone to take a definitive stance at the moment.
While many travel agents and former guests wonder whether Crystal Cruises will disappear after thirty years, one agent in the UK does not think it will be going anywhere.
Edwina Lonsdale, managing director of Mundy Cruising and its GSA arm, The Cruise Portfoliotold Travel Weekly “hopefully, things will become clearer in the next few days. It’s too early and too fluid for anyone to take a definitive stance at the moment. The watchword is patience.” She continued, “My priority is to ensure that everything happens in a measured and orderly fashion rather than a knee-jerk reaction.”
Another UK travel agent is even more convinced that Crystal will survive. The Sovereign Cruise Club owner Stefan Shillito whose company has 50 Crystal cruise bookings going forward, said, “I’m very confident our clients will go on that cruise,” he said. “We’re very confident Crystal will rise from the ashes. When it does, we’ll be there.”
