Crystal Serenity embarks on Crystal Cruises’ 22nd annual World Cruise this week, and we’re already feeling virtual wanderlust. While the ultra-luxury ship explores 52 ports in 22 fascinating Latin and South American countries on the 94-day “Southern Celebración” route, many intrepid travelers (including us) will be wishing they were sailing along with guests aboard the voyage.
The good news is that you need not miss out entirely on the discoveries to come, as we introduce Crystal Insider™ World Cruise guest blogger, Joe Kita. A journalist by trade, Joe is also a longtime Crystal partner and onboard writing instructor, who has connected with travelers over shared adventures for decades. Joe will expand his role aboard Crystal Serenity teaching memoir writing classes and leading the book club by sharing his dispatches, experiences and insights throughout the World Cruise.
You’ll be treated to firsthand accounts of adventures ashore from Mayan ruins in Tulum to stingray and nurse sharks in Belize; behind-the-scenes glimpses into life on board for guests and crew, and fascinating facts about your favorite components of the Crystal Experience.
While Joe calls Pennsylvania home, he is truly a citizen of the world with extensive cultural knowledge and perspectives we’re certain you’ll enjoy along this journey. Join us in welcoming Joe Kita to the Crystal Insider™, and wishing all guests aboard the 2017 World Cruise a tres bon voyage!
