Three new itineraries this November and December will offer luxury travellers a break from the chill of the season to enjoy an island-hopping retreat through the Caribbean.
The voyages, each 14 nights in length aboard the award-winning Crystal Serenity, set out on varied island routes that either begin or end with an overnight stay in what is affectionately known as the northern-most Caribbean city, New Orleans. Calls to island destinations in French, Dutch, British and Mexican territories, along with the colourful French influences famous in New Orleans, add a thoroughly international flair to the cruises, while the sun, sand and rhythm of the region remains constant.
“There’s something about travelling to destinations that are entirely different than one’s usual surroundings – from the climate to the cuisine – that creates a true sense of holiday,” says Crystal president and CEO, Edie Rodriguez. “Many of our guests live in areas that can feel cold as early as October, and these itineraries are the perfect luxury escape to rejuvenate oneself and enjoy some tropical refreshment.”
