An invitation to Thanksgiving. Better yet, an invitation to a Thanksgiving celebration that affords quality time in pristine waters with Caribbean wildlife, or among the masterpieces of Michelangelo and Gucci, and never requires you to lift a finger in the kitchen. That’s what’s on the proverbial table for luxury travelers seeking a change of scenery this fall, without sacrificing any of the family and feast that come along with a traditional Thanksgiving.

Our November 14 and November 22 luxury cruises aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, respectively, feature enticing savings for groups of friends and families of virtually all sizes — from free third berths for kids age 17 and under to the popular Crystal Family Memories Program, which includes perks for groups of six or more, plus extras for 10 or more sailing together.

November 14, Round-Trip Miami on Crystal Symphony (14 days)

Exchange white-sand beaches, clear blue waters, and warm sunsets of the Caribbean for the crisp, cool autumn air farther north. The “Caribbean Cornucopia” sailing calls in Cozumel, Mexico; Jamaica/Montego Bay; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Grand Cayman; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. Barts, French West Indies; St. Kitts, West Indies; and Grand Turk/Turks & Caicos. The islands lend themselves naturally to intrepid endeavors like rugged ATV exploration, ziplining, kayaking, deep sea fishing, scuba experiences for all levels of expertise, and cultural pursuits that explore ancient Mayan ruins and countless local flavors.

November 22, Monte Carlo to Marseille on Crystal Serenity (7 days) The legendary sites featured on the “Renaissance Rendezvous” sailing will entice foodies and history buffs. Beginning with an overnight in grand Monte Carlo, the voyage calls in Genoa, Florence/Livorno, Rome/Civitavecchia, and Naples, Italy; and Corsica/Ajaccio, France before disembarking in Marseille. Beauty, past and present, is all around with shore-side experiences featuring visits to Ferragamo and Gucci Museums, the famed Uffizi Gallery, and a behind-the-scenes look at the Monte Carlo Ballet.

On board, enjoy our acclaimed service and cuisine, with a gourmet Thanksgiving turkey feast, including traditional trimmings such as butternut squash soup drizzled with pumpkin seed oil, roasted turkey with apple sage dressing, sweet potato praline, cider giblet gravy, and traditional pumpkin and pecan pies.

It will be just like Thanksgivings past, if those Thanksgivings were spent in paradise and included many granted wishes and fulfilled dreams.

Until June 30, all-inclusive “Book Now” cruise fares start at $3,970 per person for the November 14 sailing and $1,895 per person for the November 22 sailing.
