A&K Travel Group has acquired the Crystal Cruises brand and two of its ships, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.

The London-based travel company is jointly owned by CEO Geoffrey Kent, and Heritage, a holding company chaired by Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, whose family acquired control of Sitmar Cruises 35 years ago.

Co-chairman of A&K Travel Group Ltd and Crystal Cruises Kent said:

The two luxury ships were acquired at auction with Crystal Symphony selling for $25m and Crystal Serenity for $103m. The two ships will resume service in 2023 after undergoing extensive refurbishment.

Monaco-based V. Ships Leisure will provide ship management services for the two vessels after partnering with A&K Travel Group.

Co-chairman of A&K Travel Group and Crystal Cruises d’Ovidio commented:

Cristina Levis, Group CEO of A&K Travel Group and former MD of Silversea Expeditions, sees the acquisition as a time to merge the two brands successfully. She said:
