Crystal unveils extended cruises for 2024

Crystal is offering four Grand Journeys to its lineup for 2024.

The sailings range from 37 to 68 days and will include longer port stays and overnight calls. 

The Crystal Symphony will sail three of the four Grand Journeys, including a Sydney-to-Singapore itinerary that departs on Jan. 24, 2024. The seven-week sailing includes the Great Barrier Reef, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, with overnight calls in multiple destinations, including Vietnam, Thailand and China. 

The Symphony will sail a Lisbon-to-Monte Carlo itinerary over 45 days. The ship will call in Portugal and Spain, Italy, Croatia and Greece, and will do an overnight call in Istanbul. The sailing departs on May 20, 2024. 

The ship will also sail a Stockholm-to-London voyage to the Baltic and Northern Europe, including Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The 37-day sailing includes four overnight stays, including in Amsterdam and Copenhagen. The Aug. 11 sailing will also include cruising around Iceland for seven days before returning to conclude in Dover, England. 

The Crystal Serenity will sail a Vancouver-to-Quebec City voyage over 42 nights. The ship will sail down the U.S. Pacific Coast and the Mexican Riviera, then crossing the Panama Canal and cruising the Caribbean. It will circle north toward New York then do a Canada/New England portion of the cruise before concluding in Quebec City. 

Both the Serenity and Symphony are undergoing renovations in Trieste, Italy, ahead of their 2023 reintroduction with a relaunch of the Crystal brand. The Serenity debuts on July 31 with a 12-day voyage out of Marseille, France, to Lisbon. The Symphony will sail a seven-day cruise from Athens to Istanbul on Sept. 1.
