Crystal Cruises is offering more choices in 2020 as the company unveils dozens of new itineraries aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. The collection of “Grand Journeys” are expanded sailings of combined existing 2020 itineraries, allowing guests to curate adventures ranging from 14 days to 57 days.
With multiple overnights offered on every extended voyage and nearly no repeating ports, guests can enjoy opportunities to explore multiple facets of the destinations they visit and the opportunity to further immerse themselves in the traditions and cultures of each one. Spanning the globe, these voyages cruise a variety of destinations, from the Holy Land and Western and Northern Europe to Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.
Several Grand Journeys even allow guests to explore multiple parts of the world over the course of one vacation, including a 31-day sojourn that encompasses ports in Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Italian coast; a 49-day quest through the Greek Isles, Israel, and the Middle East; and a 57-day route from the British Isles to the Amalfi Coast.
Other extended sailings offer enhanced, comprehensive travel through a singular region, allowing for in-depth exploration. Options range from a 25-day journey through Scandinavia during the Summer Solstice to a 28-day voyage through the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Ionian seas to a 30-day Far East holiday celebration through Southeast Asia, China, and Singapore.
“The Grand Journeys speak directly to the desires of luxury travelers who seek beyond the parameters of a traditional cruise itinerary, as many of our guests crave longer holidays abroad and deeper exploration of new places,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “Often, guests choose to combine voyages to extend their Crystal Experience. With this new collection, we have done the work for them by curating complementary itineraries that best showcase the world’s most fascinating locales.”
The Grand Journeys expanded sailings are now available to book, offering a 5 percent savings for the combined itineraries and enhancing the all-inclusive luxury of the Crystal Experience.
