Already planning for 2019? Consider a Crystal cruise

Crystal Serenity - one of two luxury ships in the Crystal Cruises fleet.

Believe it or not, bookings are already open with Crystal Cruises and its suite of luxury ocean and river ships for itineraries departing more than two full years in the future.

The line has unveiled its complete global schedule one year out from the end of the decade, featuring two ocean-going ships – Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony; five river cruise vessels – Crystal Mozart, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Ravel; and one small coast-hugging yacht – Crystal Esprit. In total, the global fleet will sail 260 separate itineraries to 91 countries, visiting nearly 300 ports, of which 13 will be visited for the first time, and spending at least one entire night in port at 71 different destinations.

All-inclusive fares start from US$2,080 per person for ocean cruises, $3,060 per person for a river cruise and US$5,365 per person for a yacht expedition.

Some hot destinations will appear on Crystal’s radar in 2019 including Jerusalem (with three full days in Israel) and Jordan, Kamchatka Peninsula in Siberia, Isle of Man in the UK and Aitutaki Island in New Zealand. Among the brand new destinations making their debut will be Ishigaki, Japan, Port Arthur, Tasmania, Kangaroo Island and Porto Novo, Cape Verde.

These are just a taste of the year that Crystal Cruises will have in 2019. If you’re thinking ahead…well ahead…to your holidays for that period or just wish to lock something in now, contact your preferred travel retailer for more information or to book.
