Crystal maps out four 'grand journeys' with A&K experiences

Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will operate four 'grand journeys' in addition to Serenity's 2024 world cruise
Crystal plans four extended 'grand journeys' of 38 to 68 nights next year, in addition to its 2024 world cruise on Crystal Serenity.

These extended itineraries offer longer port stays and overnight calls, and Crystal’s partnership with Abercrombie & Kent will facilitate exclusive experiences curated by local experts and tastemakers.

Crystal Symphony

Crystal Symphony is to operate three grand journeys.

A South Pacific odyssey from Sydney to Singapore (68 nights, Jan. 24 - March 12), explores Australia, New Zealand and Asia with highlights including the Great Barrier Reef, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, with overnight calls in multiple destinations such as Vietnam, Thailand and China.

A Europe/Mediterranean voyage from Lisbon to Monte Carlo (45 nights, May 20 - July 4) offers a taste of Iberian culture with calls in Portugal and Spain before continuing to Morocco, France, Italy, Croatia and Greece. An overnight call at Istanbul is among the highlights.  

Crystal Symphony's Baltic/Northern Europe trip, Stockholm to Dover (38 nights, Aug. 11 - Sept. 18), visits destinations including Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, UK and Iceland. Overnights are at cities including Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Dundee.

Crystal Serenity

Crystal Serenity's grand journey is a cross-continent voyage from Vancouver, BC to Québec City (42 nights, Aug. 13 - Sept. 24). The ship will sail from Alaska, down the Pacific Coast of the US to Mexco, through the Panama Canal and Caribbean to New York, New England and Canada.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony are currently undergoing extensive refurbishments at Fincantieri's Trieste shipyard. When they debut in late summer, enhancements will include larger, updated suites with artisanal finishes, a revamped spa, a new pickleball court and more.
