Crystal Esprit will embark on a new season of voyages through the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Oman, and the Holy Land in October through December of 2019. The seven- to 11-day sailings will cruise the Arabian Peninsula. Overnights in Dubai and Abu Dhabi showcase the UAE culture, while a double overnight in Aqaba, Jordan, allows for visits to the Rose City of Petra and Wadi Rum.
New on the Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises roster of destinations are Doha, Qatar, where the I.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art and Sheikh Faisal Museum display the country’s fascinating heritage, and the excitement over the 2022 World Cup is already beginning to build; and Sokhna, Egypt, which offers Crystal guests a gateway to the pyramids of Giza, just 60 miles away from Cairo, and the soon-to-be-opened archaeological Grand Egyptian Museum.
The resort town of Eilat, Israel is also featured, as well as Muscat, Oman, an icon of Arabian style and hospitality. The itineraries do not repeat and are easily combinable for a comprehensive exploration of this region.
Crystal Esprit embarks on her new Arabian Nights Collection on October 20, 2019, with all-inclusive luxuries tailored to accommodate just 62 guests.
