Plan to Expand Your Global Exploration with Luxury Theme Cruises
What’s your travel style? Do you fancy yourself a wine aficionado, a scratch golfer, a titan of the tango? Have you ever simply wanted to try something new while traveling the world? That’s what global travel is about – pushing our boundaries beyond what we’ve experienced before, and not only in terms of passport stamps. Because of this truth, we are delighted to unveil the comprehensive lineup of Experiences of Discovery for the remainder of this year, and next year… and the next year. These luxury theme cruises have long been among Crystal’s most popular voyages for a host of reasons, not the least of which is that savvy travelers, like you, relish the immersion into experiences that enrich the journey.
Whether you’re already a culinary comandante or clumsy in the kitchen, Crystal’s “Wine & Food Festival” cruises will make your mouth water and leave you with some tips and tricks from the world’s premier chefs. Even golfers with a two-handicap thrill at the chance to play the links at legendary courses, and can learn a thing or two from the onboard guest PGA pros. Health and fitness enthusiasts, as well as those just seeking some peace on vacation will find themselves rejuvenated aboard “Mind, Body & Spirit” voyages. And anyone who’s even mildly culturally, socially and politically curious will find themselves riveted by the intellectual ping pong presented by the “Ocean Views” panels of leading authors, world leaders, journalists and regional experts.
The roster of Experiences of Discovery luxury theme cruises set to make your next Crystal vacation the most enriching experience yet includes:
Wine & Food Festival – Featuring guest chefs from around the world, as well as renowned wine experts and sommeliers and master mixologists presenting demos, tastings, pairings and hands-on instruction in their respective crafts to bring out your inner chef, or simply satisfy your not-so-inner foodie.
