The Crystal Serenity is a gallant, regal ship just recently refurbished in 2011. It boasts a number of fine restaurants including The Silk Road (contemporary Asian cuisine) and Prego, home of unique Italian fare. With a library, casino and tennis court, this vessel truly has it all.
“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,” Crystal President Gregg Michel said. “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.”
The maiden calls besides those shown in the itinerary above are impressive to say the least, including Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Albany, Australia; Ambodifotra and Taolagnaro, Madagascar; and Richards Bay, South Africa. Don’t forget about Easter Island, Bora Bora, the Cook Islands, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Reunion Island, Buenos Aires, Cartagena, Turks & Caicos, and much more.
Along with the delightful itinerary, the World Cruise includes private enrichment, fitness programs, special music and theater entertainment, social events and mementos.
