Crystal Cruises is upping the ante in 2012 with a dozen new itineraries, more shorter-length cruises, and an almost 50% increase in overnight port stays.
“Our goal for the year was to enhance the ease and value of traveling with Crystal,” explains President Gregg Michel. “For example, by adding more overnights to the cruises, especially at embarkation, travelers only have to unpack once, yet get even more time to experience a culture, while still having their Crystal home as a luxurious base.”
Some of the newer itineraries are Panama Canal, world cruise starting on the Australian coast, Brazil, Europe’s western coast, North Cape, Baltic, Black Sea, Eastern Canada, Australia/New Zealand, six major ocean crossings, 16-night NY to London, and two sailings in Nov/Dec that, combined, sail from L.A. to New Zealand.
Together, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will visit 182 ports-of-call in 59 countries on 60 itineraries worldwide.
