Crystal Cruises

The world isn’t flat. While Columbus may have proven this theory over 500 years ago, the curious traveler still has an excuse to test it out, thanks to Crystal Cruises. Taking the guesswork out of globe-trotting, Crystal provides well over 50 itineraries, visiting more than 180 port cities, plus numerous overland adventures. Guests will relish  the fact that they can relax in comfort, quality, and country-hopping bliss, while quite effortlessly leaving no ‘corner’ of the globe undiscovered – all without having to face airport security lines, or unpack, repack, and unpack again at each destination.

There’s a reason that Crystal is consistently ranked as the “World’s Best Cruise Line” – its two ships, Serenity and Symphony, are floating five-star hotels. Handsomely appointed rooms (Murano glass sinks and Frette linens instead of the standard minuscule bathroom and scratchy blanket), warm, personalized service (a crew to guest ratio close to 1:1), and gourmet dining options (Nobu’s Silk Road, and a menu from Valentino’s in Prego) delineate a crystal-clear difference from any other cruise line in the luxury market.

A Crystal voyage offers an opportunity for families seeking both luxury and togetherness. Spacious staterooms, third-berth accommodations, child-friendly cuisine, and a full roster of activities mean grandparents, preschoolers – and all ages in between – can breathe easier. Luxury is in the details and it’s that attention to detail that attracts a varied group to Crystal Cruises. The annual series of Wine & Food Festival sailings invites acclaimed winemakers and wizards of cuisine to take to the sea for cooking demos, wine tastings, and gala dinners that satisfy even the msot finicky of foodies. Crystal’s Experiences of Discovery cruises provide guests with insight and instruction in disciplines as far-ranging as ballroom dance, floral design, and digital filmmaking. And for the golf fanatic who can’t leave the game behind… why not take advantage of the on-board driving range, putting green, and PGA pro?

Sailing the seven seas with Crystal Cruises isn’t simply about seeing the world; it’s about caring for the world, too, and the cruise line shares its guests’ passion for respecting our delicate planet. Crystal Cares supports a variety of philanthropic and environmental initiatives including a commitment to sustainable seafood practices, their Crystal Clean program, and their You Care, We Care program. On select voyages, guests may participate in various humanitarian projects. And Crystal donates a portion of select shore excursion proceeds to World Heritage Sites.
