Global Treasures You Didn’t Know You Could See in a Single Voyage

The Australian coast lies approximately 8,820 miles from Athens’ Acropolis. To get to Phuket from the Rose City of Petra, plan for a trek of over 4,200 miles. Quite a distance to cover in the span of a typical vacation. Crystal Grand Journeys are anything but typical, and we’ve just unveiled the selection of these incredible vacations for 2021, allowing you to plan for extended quests abroad far in advance. For those who have the time and desire to expand their global explorations farther than usual, or simply don’t want the journey to end, these curated combo voyages are an ideal option.

Turning two, three, four, five or even six voyages into expanded, epic quests of immersive discovery, these journeys maximize the transformative experiences and fascinating destinations of your travels. Whether it’s reaching numerous profound landmarks and sites that you couldn’t otherwise see in one cruise or extending your time to thoroughly explore one or two distinct regions, Crystal Grand Journeys take the extraordinary Crystal Experience farther than ever.

Here’s a sampling of what awaits you in a single Crystal Grand Journey…
