The 2017 President’s Cruise will be Crystal’s first itinerary to the Holy Land and Arabian Peninsula since 2012. Rodriguez and her husband, Tom, will participate in receptions, parties, and onshore experiences throughout the 18-day sailing.
The itinerary calls at Rome, Limassol, Haifa, Ashdod, Salalah, Muscat, Dubai, as well as transit of the Suez Canal, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, and the Arabian Sea. In the Rose City of Petra, travelers will enjoy a special President’s shore excursion; an overnight stay in Muscat is timed perfectly for the Sultan’s birthday celebrations; and rock climbing and Indian Ocean scuba dives in Salalah. Sky Tea at the Burj Al Arab and sunset at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai round out the trip.
