Crystal is poised to elevate the cruise experience by introducing specially curated themed voyages tailored to golf, Broadway, film, and theater enthusiasts. These distinct cruises are designed to go beyond a mere sea voyage, providing passengers with immersive experiences aligned with their favorite hobbies and interests.
The themed journeys commence with a spotlight on film and theater, as Crystal Symphony embarks on a voyage from Bangkok to Hong Kong from February 16 to 28. This exceptional cruise promises to be a haven for cinephiles and theater buffs, featuring captivating performances and opportunities to engage with industry experts like Grammy-nominated Christine Allado, renowned for her roles in musical theater, and Broadway musical historian Steven Friedman. Former regional marketing director for United Artists and Columbia Pictures Andrew Friedenberg and esteemed American movie and TV actor Bruce McGill will also be aboard for fireside chats to share industry anecdotes.
For aficionados of golf, a special voyage is scheduled from July 18 to 30, as Crystal Symphony navigates from Lisbon to Dover. This golf-themed cruise brings aboard esteemed instructors David Leadbetter and Roberto Borgatti, offering guests a chance to enhance their game amid the picturesque golfing destinations around the world. Leadbetter is known for his work with legendary players such as Nick Faldo, Greg Norman and Ernie Els, and has a track record of coaching 26 players to Major Championship titles. Borgatti leads clinics for players of all skill levels, helping aspiring candidates pass the PGA Player Ability Test.
Broadway enthusiasts are not overlooked, as Crystal Cruises presents two Broadway-themed voyages in October aboard Crystal Serenity. These sailings, one from Quebec City to New York City and the other from New York City back to Quebec City, will showcase performances and appearances by American actress and singer Rachel York, along with other notable guests. Known for her iconic stage roles in productions such as City of Angels, Les Miserables, and Kiss Me Kate, York will bring her unparalleled talent to the stage, promising unforgettable performances that will transport guests to the heart of Broadway.
