Dear Luxury Traveler,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I present to you our sailings for the first quarter of 2018, and in particular our epic 2018 World Cruises!
In 2018, Crystal is planning for not one…not two…but four spectacular World Cruise itineraries! Guests joining us for this unrivaled world event may choose from a selection of tantalizing global itineraries. But what truly makes our 2018 World Cruise season extraordinary is that you can switch ships and continue your world cruise on a different ship than you started on.
Here’s how it works:
If you prefer to nestle in comfortably on one ship throughout your entire journey, you can select a 114-day odyssey aboard Crystal Symphony departing January 7, 2018, discovering the secrets and scenery of four continents between Cape Town and Miami (World Cruise 1).
Similarly, you may reserve a luxurious stateroom or Penthouse aboard Crystal Serenity during an uncommonly stunning 112-day voyage from Los Angeles to Rome (World Cruise 2), departing January 23, 2018,that encompasses North America, Australia, Asia and Africa.
However…if you are an intrepid traveler who wishes to create cruise history with us on a first-ever dual-ship world voyage, you can customize your own world cruise by beginning your journey on one ship, and returning home on another. This first-ever ship exchange for all our World Cruise guests of our World Cruises (1 and 2) will take place during a landmark World Cruise Gala in Sydney, Australia, on February 17, 2018. This one-of-a-kind jubilee is certain to make headlines across the globe, and we truly hope you will consider being a part of it.
Again, if you opt to begin your journey on Crystal Symphony, you can switch ships in Sydney and finish your World Cruise on Crystal Serenity (World Cruise 3). Or, you can start your cruise on Crystal Serenity and then switch to Crystal Symphony to complete your voyage (World Cruise 4). Of course, as always with Crystal, choices abound and you may opt to sail on shorter, individual voyages that comprise each of these World Cruises. You can mix and match to your heart’s delight and create an experience of incomparable singularity.
Any cruise aboard Crystal offers countless opportunities for personal enrichment, both on board and ashore. And our 2018 World Cruises are no exception. Full World Cruise guests benefit from a host of special savings and amenities, including specially priced Book Now Fares, exclusive additional savings, $2,000 per person As You Wish shipboard spending credits, chauffeured private vehicle transfers, excess luggage reimbursement, exclusive events both on board and ashore, World Cruise gifts and so much more. These generous offerings are the perfect complement to our award-winning service, inviting spaces, peerless quality and endless choices.
Details for our amazing four-in-one year, 2018 World Cruises, as well our 2016 and 2017 World Cruises aboard Crystal Serenity, and our 2017 Grand Cruise aboard Crystal Symphony, are included in our first-ever, multi-year World Cruise Collection brochure!
