MIAMI – Crystal Cruises has announced that its 2023 Crystal Serenity voyages are now open for booking.
In 2023, the ship will sail individual voyages of seven to 23 nights, as well as a full world cruise offered with 140-, 128- and 119-night options, and combination sailings of up to 100 nights without repeating ports.
Enhancing the roster of sailings that spans from the South Pacific to St. Barts, the Black Sea to Boston, and the Mediterranean to Miami is the added incentive of Crystal’s new Easy Book program, which offers reduced deposits and waived admin fees for all new bookings made through June 30, 2020.
“At a time when so many travellers are eager to return to exploring and seeking out new experiences and cultures, we’re happy to offer more than three full years of global itineraries to inspire their next journeys,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “The anticipation of an incredible vacation is one of the best parts of travel – the wonder about places one has never seen or the way that favourite destinations pull at the heart to return. The 2023 voyages planned for Crystal Serenity encompass all of this and are designed to inspire that sense of joyful anticipation for our guests.”
Highlights of Crystal Serenity’s 2023 deployment include:
