Crystal Cruises unveiled a selection of journeys that offers more options for passengers seeking expanded global trips, as well as those with limited time.
The line's “Grand Journeys” combine Crystal's existing worldwide itineraries onboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, allowing guests to extend exploration, while “Crystal Getaways” provide abbreviated segments of longer itineraries which accommodate today’s busy travellers.
New for 2019-2020 is Crystal Grand Journeys which sail the Mediterranean and Western Europe, Central America, Caribbean, Southeast Asia, the South Pacific. With multiple overnights on every extended cruise and nearly no repeating cruise ports, the Grand Journeys range between 14-27 days, affording travellers to immerse themselves in the entire regions over the course of one cruise vacation or enjoy diverse cultural experiences.
The Italian countryside, Greek Isles, and Holy Land are all included in one expanded itinerary. Another one explores El Salvador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nicaragua, and New Orleans along the Gulf Coast route.
As Crystal Grand Journeys comprise the onboard and shoreside amenities and options of all luxury Crystal cruises, nearly every trip offers specialized programming of at least one of the line’s acclaimed Experiences of Discovery themed cruises. Passengers can pursue new interests or delve deeper into their favourite interests like Broadway hits, ballroom dance, wine, golf, and more.
For 2020, Crystal is offering 3 new Crystal Getaways, sailing through the Hawaii Islands, South Pacific and Southeast Asia, that range from 7 to 14 days. The shorter options enable travellers to fill their limited time with adventures and luxury, while also offering great value.
