We believe firmly that the adventures on a luxury vacation need not be confined to shore-side experiences. Pushing one’s boundaries with new experiences can be as simple as learning to samba with an Ambassador Host; achieving a personal best with an extra lap around the Promenade Deck; producing your own professional travel film on your iPad; or expanding your palate with a perfectly paired winemaker’s dinner. It’s the desire to experience new things and cultures that maximize the enrichment of travel.
Accordingly, we’re upping your enrichment ante aboard two voyages on Crystal Serenity this November and December. With the back-to-back Experiences of Discovery theme cruises, you’re free to diversify your interests, or delve deeper into your already favorite topics. Jazz, craft beer, wellness and golf are all on the menu this winter, and you don’t have to choose just one.
On November 22, the ship sails round-trip from New Orleans on a 14-day route through some of the most vibrant locales in Mexico and the Caribbean. Appropriately festive programming features a musical focus on Jazz in the posh lounges and nightclubs, with multiple shows daily filled with soulful bass riffs and saxophone solos, sultry vocals and plenty of rhythm. Meanwhile at the bar… a special presentation of our popular Wine & Food Festival will concentrate on the art of craft microbrews. Stephen Beaumont, prolific columnist and one of the world’s top authorities on all things beer, will lead tasting sessions, highlighting the nuances of production, flavor and various styles of craft beers and microbrews (yes, there is a difference).
The following cruise offers health, wellness and golf enthusiasts the ideal blend of onboard activities, with a double theme lineup of Mind, Body & Spirit and Golf programming. Sailing from New Orleans to Miami on December 6, the cruise allows you to revitalize your health – and
your swing – with insights from field experts. Dr. Barbara Udell will share her extensive expertise in aging healthfully, stress management and general wellness during interactive presentations. In between lectures, take advantage of the many fitness programs on board, from indoor cycling and Pilates to cardio al fresco on the Promenade Deck. Or catch one of the hands-on group classes led by PGA pro John Clark, during which he’ll offer tips on technique, form and other ways to improve your handicap. Personal instruction with John is also available upon request, as are fitness training sessions with Crystal’s own expert trainers.
Travel is good for the “Mind, Body & Spirit” in so many ways, and the enriching programs set for these voyages offer even more reasons to expand your horizons this year. Book now for added savings and value.
