The men of the old navigated the globe by way of the sea, unravelling new cultures and continents in year-long voyages and often, dangerous trips. But the present-day luxury travellers have no time for an extended voyage; thus, Crystal Cruises launched the Crystal Grand Journey – a glorious exploration of the world’s best itineraries, treating its crowd with diverse landscapes, breath-taking stops and magnificent adventures only ocean navigation can provide.
Each journey ranges from 14 to 27 days, passing through the sun-kissed regions of Mediterranean, Caribbean, Central America, Southeast Asia, and the South Pacific with nearly no repeating ports. The short span of time affords travellers to soak into the splendour of each region, over the course of one satisfying holiday.
Delight in short stops over the mythical Greek Isles. Explore the jungles of Costa Rica. Dance in the tune of the Orleans and see the dazzling beaches in Asia. One, however, has the option to immerse themselves with different cultures, spending more time with the people rather than sightseeing.
For the travellers with less time in their hands, there’s Crystal Getaways, a meaningful cruise that lasts from 7 to 14 days. Packed with diverse adventures and luxurious experiences, this shorter jaunt promises a one- of-a-kind escapade. crystalcruises.com ◼
