New Private Car Excursions Available Aboard Crystal Cruises


Due to guest demand, beginning this spring, Crystal Cruises’ luxury travelers have a new private option for exploring Europe: their own car and driver, with local, English-speaking guide. The new private car or van offerings allow singles, couples and small groups (eight maximum) to fully customize time ashore upon arrival. While Crystal is launching the program in 50 European ports on Crystal SymphonyMediterranean cruises and Crystal Serenity Northern European cruises, the line plans to extend the program to other destinations later in the year.

The program is the newest addition to a roster of Crystal Adventures shore excursion choices, including:

·         Organized shore tours that range from special-interest adventures and city overviews to intimate only-with-Crystal Cruises Boutique Adventures, and unique Signature Collection experiences to You Care, We Care voluntourism excursions.

·         Private Options: For guests wanting to follow the same tour itinerary as select Crystal Adventures, privately.

·         Private Adventures: Personalized and fully customized to a guest’s wishes in advance by Crystal, including itineraries, admissions, meals and transportation. 

·         Overland Adventures: Multiple-day excursions on land, further from port, providing two to three days of exploration ashore with hotel stays.

The new private car and driver services start at $270 per car, with guides speaking languages other than English also available upon request.
