Crystal Cruises has announced four ‘Grand Journey’ extended cruises for 2024, headlined by a 68-night Sydney to Singapore sailing.
Onboard the 606-guest Crystal Symphony, departing on January 4, 2024, passengers will sail through various destinations in Asia, New Zealand as well as Australia. Some of the highlights include a visit to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkelling and diving, an expedition to see the Komodo Dragons on its namesake island in Indonesia as well as island hopping in the Philippines.
The Symphony will overnight in Bali, Singapore, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, Hong Kong, and Manila so guests can experience the bustling nightlife of these Asian hubs.
Ocean view suites start from $50,600, or $744 per night.
There are several European jaunts including a Lisbon to Monte Carlo sailing, departing on May 20, 2024. This voyage takes in classic Mediterranean ports across Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, and Greece and a Turkish exploration, with an overnight stay in Istanbul. Fares start from $37,700.
In Northern Europe, the Symphony sails on a 38-night Stockholm to London voyage through Finland, Sweden, Latvia, Germany and the Netherlands. The journey then passes through the United Kingdom to see the barren and unique landscapes of Iceland. There is an overnight in the capital, Reykjavik, before a series more of Icelandic ports before reaching the Faroe Islands. Fares start from $30,100.
When the Crystal Serenity launches, she’ll sail on a 42-night sailing from Vancouver to Quebec City. From Vancouver, the ship heads to Alaska to see the 51st American state’s abundant wildlife. The ship then passes through Canada and heads down the Californian coast and the Mexican marine-life paradise, Baja California.
On this epic journey, the Serenity sails into Central and South America, with more stops in Mexico, as well as ports in Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia. After a stop in the Cayman Islands, the ship then heads towards the East Coast and visits Miami, New York, Portland, and Halifax before finishing the voyage in Quebec.
Fares for this sailing on Crystal Serenity begin from $29,900.
