Crystal Announces 2024 Grand Journeys Itineraries

Crystal has revealed four new "Grand Journeys Itineraries" for 2024. Designed to foster discovery, these extended itineraries offer longer port stays and overnight calls to iconic and off-the-beaten-track destinations around the globe.

To complement Crystal Serenity's 2024 World Cruise, which will visit 29 countries and 62 destinations over the course of up to 141 nights, the 2024 "Grand Journeys Itineraries" range from 37 to 68 nights, offering guests opportunities to immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of each locale. Crystal’s partnership with Abercrombie & Kent will further expose passengers on these voyages to "the unseen side" of some of these destinations, with exclusive experiences curated by local experts and tastemakers. 

Crystal Symphony

Sydney to Singapore (January 4 to March 12, 2024)

For the first of its three "Grand Journeys Itineraries," Crystal Symphony will embark on a seven-week voyage from Sydney to Hong Kong departing January 4, 2024. Passengers will have an opportunity to explore Australia, New Zealand, and Asia with highlights including the Great Barrier Reef, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and more. With overnight calls in multiple destinations such as Vietnam, Thailand, and China, passengers will have ample time to explore some of Asia’s most fascinating cities.

Lisbon to Monte Carlo (May 20 - July 4, 2024)

The ship’s 45-night journey from Lisbon to Monte Carlo will offer passengers a taste of Iberian culture with port calls in Portugal and Spain before sailing to the enchanting cities of Cannes and Monte Carlo. Crystal Symphony will then head south in Italy towards stops in France, Croatia and Greece—including visits to Santorini, Crete and Mykonos. An overnight call in Istanbul kicks off the last segment before this trip concludes in Monte Carlo.

Stockholm to London (August 11 - September 18, 2024)

The "Baltic and Northern Europe Grand Journey" begins with visits to such destinations as Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Four overnights, including Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Dundee, allow for further destination immersion as guests make their way through the Netherlands and United Kingdom en-route to Iceland. There, the ship will then spend seven nights, offering passengers the opportunity to explore all the country has to offer, including the Northern Lights in Reykjavik. The voyage will sail down the Scottish coast and around England and conclude in Dover.

Crystal Serenity 

Vancouver to Quebec City (August 13 - September 24, 2024)

Crystal Serenity will take passengers on a 42-night, cross-continent journey beginning in Vancouver on August 13, 2024. The voyage will sail down the Pacific, Baja California and Mexican coasts, offering guests time to experience the region’s landscapes, historical landmarks and tropical beaches and beyond. The ship will sail through Caribbean waters before heading up the east coast to New York City and concluding in Quebec City on September 24, 2004.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony are currently undergoing extensive refurbishments in Trieste, Italy. When the ships debut, enhancements will include larger, updated suites with artisanal finishes, onboard wellness as well as a revamped spa. Guests will also find a new pickleball court along with refreshed entertainment and events.
