Crystal Cruises are offering cruise fans the chance to enjoy unique round-the-world cruise experiences, with the two ships of the fleet undertaking simultaneous world cruises. The Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will sail world cruises simultaneously, meeting in Sydney on 17 February 2018, giving passengers the chance to swap ships.
This has allowed Crystal Cruises to offer four different round-the-world cruise experiences for passengers to choose from. Although the cruises will not set sail for nearly three years, the itineraries are now on sale – giving passengers plenty of time to plan which of the four cruise choices best suits their tastes.
Packages aboard Crystal Cruises’ round-the-world cruises include two exclusive on-shore events, $2,000 on-board spending money and airport transfers via private chauffeured cars. Guests have the option to further customise their journeys – picking shorter itineraries from and to the ports the ships visit.
The Crystal Symphony sets off slightly early than her sister ship, setting sailing from Cape Town on 7 January for the 114-night cruise. Visiting South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and the Caribbean before arriving in Miami; the Symphony is set to complete a comprehensive tour of the Southern Hemisphere.
The Crystal Serenity begins her journey on 21 January from Los Angeles before the 112-night cruise, sailing to the South Pacific, Australia, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East before journeying up to the Mediterranean and culminating in the Italian city, Rome.
For cruise fans who want to stretch their number of nights at sea should start on the Symphony before transferring to the Serenity for a 129 night cruise.
This will be the first time the cruise line has offered four different round-the-world cruise trips in one calendar year. The 922 passenger Symphony and 1,070 passenger Serenity both offer a more intimate cruise experience and incredibly personable service.
