This winter Crystal Symphony will set sail on luxury voyages to the Lesser Antilles, Virgin Islands & The Bahamas.
From late November 2021 through March 2022, Crystal Symphony will deploy to the sun-washed shores of the Caribbean. The luxury cruise ship will sail a series of 14 seven-night luxury voyages and two 10- and 11-night holiday itineraries exploring the exclusive enclaves of the Lesser Antilles, the yachting harbors of the Virgin Islands and the pristine natural beauty of the Bahamian Out Islands.
Crystal Symphony’s Caribbean season will launch on November 26 with a seven-night voyage ‘Bound for Paradise’ from New York City to Nassau which will sail south and trade colder weather for tropical bliss with calls exploring the secluded cays and harbors of remote Bahamian isles. Seven-night voyages including five ‘Luxury Antilles Interlude’ cruises from Miami to San Juan, five ‘Luxury Caribbean Kaleidoscope’ cruises from San Juan to Miami, and three ‘Blissful Bahamian Luxury’ cruises round-trip from Miami, will allow travelers the option to combine voyages for longer sailings and enjoy savings of five percent on back-to-back voyages. Seven-night Caribbean sailings are also combinable with Crystal Symphony’s 10-night ‘Connoisseur’s Caribbean Holiday’, December 18 – 29, 2021, and 11-night ‘Tropical New Year’s Celebration’, December 29 – January 8, 2022, both of which sail from Miami roundtrip and can also be combined for five percent savings.
“There has never been a better time or opportunity to experience true luxury with the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line,” said Jack Anderson, president of Crystal. “These destination-rich voyages to the Caribbean and Bahamas in the popular high season are a unique chance for travelers to take that Crystal cruise they’ve dreamed of and enjoy Crystal’s hallmark luxuries with close to home departures to idyllic islands that are a world way in terms of natural beauty and incredible experiences.”
