Summer is perfect for quality family time and unique, eye opening experiences. This summer, the ultra-luxurious Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony cruises will be sailing to the Baltic, North Cape, the Mediterranean and Western Europe, offering a selection of 7 to 15 day voyages. Like a “summer school at sea,” Crystal Cruises provides a fun and sociable environment for children and young adults traveling with family by offering extraordinary learning opportunities not only in travel and sightseeing but also through a variety of on-board enrichment programs and educational onshore excursions.
A Variety of Enrichment Programs On-board
Crystal Cruises offers a variety of enrichment programs on board with the Creative Learning Institute® as well as other Crystal’s signature program. Young travelers can discover a new language, explore their talent in the arts or sports, and become inspired by highly-esteemed speakers. Many programs on board also complement the excursions to on shore destinations providing a comprehensive and fun learning experience at sea.
Extended Educational Onshore Excursions
Apart from the extensive enrichment opportunities on-board, Crystal Cruises will provide eye-opening adventures onshore with its Crystal Adventures program taking young travelers to various exciting destinations. Be it an exploration of nature, appreciation of the arts or a visit to historical sites, a variety of excursion options are available from Crystal Cruises to meet young travelers’ curiosity and quest for knowledge.
A Multicultural Environment and Special Social Occasions
The Crystal Cruises experience is not limited to the onboard educational activities and fascinating onshore excursions. The multicultural environment and special occasions on Crystal are also valuable for young guests to experience networking opportunities. By interacting with guests from different countries, social and cultural backgrounds as well as attentive multinational Crystal staff, young travelers’ essential social skills will be developed. Young travelers will also be able to experience social etiquette and practice table manners at formal nights and dinners hosted at specialty restaurants that require dressing up. As many young travelers probably make their debut in formal social occasions on Crystal, the experience marks an important start to prepare themselves for similar occasions in the future.
“Crystal Cruises is dedicated to creating a refined traveling experience beyond the usual sightseeing and tourist spot visits. We offer family travelers the opportunity to learn together through a variety of on-board enrichment programs and educational onshore excursions. Parents will find their children more learned and sociable at the end of the voyage,” said Marnie Whipple, Regional Sales Manager, Asia and the Pacific, Crystal Cruises.
Fares for the Crystal voyages this summer begin at USD1,310/person with all-inclusive amenities such as complimentary gratuities, fine wines and spirits, specialty restaurants (including the lauded cuisine of Nobu Matsuhisa), Open Dining by Reservation®, and onboard entertainment and enrichment.
