Crystal Options the SS United States

Contrary to earlier plans and assumptions, the SS United States will not become a floating hotel or amusement center, permanently moored in some East Coast city. Plans now are to once again revive it as a cruise ship.

With great fanfare, Crystal Cruises today announced they have an option to buy the classic liner and restore it to sailing status. They are currently beginning a feasability study which they plan to complete by the end of the year.

The complete story appeared in the November 4 edition of Cruise News Daily.
