Crystal launches virtual cruise experience

MIAMI — Crystal is bringing its signature cruise experience to couches around the world with the launch of Crystal@Home: A Virtual Cruise Experience.

The cruise line is inviting travellers to interact with Crystal and each other via a weekly series of live streaming events, conversations on Crystal’s social media channels, stories on the Crystal Insider blog, and a podcast guest lecture series.

“We often say that our guests are family, and we miss our Crystal Family and we know that they miss exploring the world. Just as our guests feel at home aboard our ships, we want them to be able to enjoy their favourite elements of a Crystal vacation from their own homes,” says Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “Our guests’ interests are varied and broad, and the Crystal@Home program speaks to that individuality. It also unites us over a common love of travel and the Crystal Experience during this challenging time.”

Crystal@Home showcases a weekly virtual voyage featuring the many different aspects of the Crystal Experience, including exciting destinations, Sunday cooking classes with Chef Jon Ashton via Facebook Live (with recipes and ingredient lists featured the preceding Tuesday on the Crystal Insider blog), Crystal Storytellers podcasts featuring experts, celebrities and authors, home workouts from Crystal’s certified fitness instructors, cocktail recipes featured on the Insider blog and Friday night entertainment posted on Facebook.

Guests are also invited to share in the experience each Saturday by posting images and short videos from their Crystal voyages, utilizing the hashtag #CrystalFamily.
