Travel News: Crystal Serenity 2017 Voyages Reposition To North & South America

Luxury Line To Introduce New Roster Of Luxury Itineraries For Award-Winning Crystal Serenity

Crystal Cruises, the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line, announced today that it will reposition one of its luxury ocean vessels in 2017, unveiling an entirely new lineup of itineraries. Following the 2017 “Southern Celebración” World Cruise round-trip from Miami, Crystal Serenity will sail throughout North America for the remainder of the year, offering routes along the east and west coasts, through Alaska, New England and Eastern Canada, as well as the eastern seaboard into the Caribbean. Historically, Crystal Serenity has spent the majority of her 12 years at sea cruising the Mediterranean, Western Europe and the Black Sea but the line’s tremendous expansion plans afforded an opportunity for change.
