Crystal Cruises is looking far into the future, sans crystal ball, revealing early details of its 2015 World Cruise.
In honor of its 20th World Cruise, and 25th anniversary of the company, the ultra-luxe line will be offering a brand new route: a full circumnavigation of the globe conveniently round-trip from Miami starting January 15, 2015. The 108-day, warm weather voyage aboard Crystal Serenity will consist of six all-inclusive segments that will traverse Central and South America, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa, and the Caribbean, as follows:
• Miami to Callao/Lima (16 days)
• Callao/Lima to Auckland (19 days)
• Auckland to Perth (21 days)
• Perth to Cape Town (21 days)
• Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro (15 days)
• Rio de Janeiro to Miami (16 days)
“For our 20th World Cruise, travelers can expect an especially spectacular addition to their personal bank of once-in-a-lifetime memories, with popular cultural capitals and off-the-beaten-path jewels that appeal to both our loyal regulars and those new to us,” says Crystal President Gregg Michel. “Add the hands-on world education, the bonding among guests, easy country-hopping, and luxurious home base of Crystal Serenity to the round-trip Miami circumnavigation and 25th anniversary celebrations, and this is sure to be one of the finest global explorations any adventurer could ever experience.”
Additional itinerary highlights include maiden calls in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Albany, Australia; Ambodifotra and Taolagnaro, Madagascar; and Richards Bay, S. Africa (in addition to three other South African calls), and stops in Easter Island, Bora Bora, the Cook Islands, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Reunion Island, Buenos Aires, Cartagena, Turks & Caicos, and more. Full World Cruisers receive a host of complimentary perks such as private enrichment classes, fitness programs, entertainment, social invitations, and mementos.
