For early 2013, Crystal Cruises announces an atypical calendar of ultraluxe cruises visiting more than 40 countries, 100+ ports-of-call, 37 overnights in “star” destinations, and a dozen+ renowned waterways on various rich cruise itineraries – all within a span of less than six months. 

Among the new selections is a comprehensive 74-day, 14-country World Cruise circling South America.   Nineteen all-inclusive voyages covering most of the first half of 2013 are now open for booking and detailed on Crystal’s website, the first quarter of 2013, we’re deploying our ships quite differently than in the recent past in that each will offer exotic, in-depth deployments, but in different parts of the world – Australia/New Zealand/Asia for Crystal Symphony and a South American-concentrated World Cruise for Crystal Serenity,” says President Gregg Michel.  “Crystal’s luxury travelers will have a choice of two very grand alternatives for longer-scale cruising, along with shorter cruise options and multiple opportunities for fascinating combinations.”
