HONG KONG: Two Crystal Cruises ships operating under a Genting Hong Kong Ltd unit have been seized in the Bahamas after a fuel supplier sought their arrest for US$4.6mil (RM19.25mil) in unpaid bills, according to a crew video and the Cruise Law News website.

The Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity were arrested late Friday night in Freeport in the Bahamas, according to Cruise Law News, a site run by Jim Walker, a maritime lawyer based in Florida who cited crew members on both ships for the information.
