With busy professionals’ vacation breaks (and attention spans) getting shorter, ultra-luxury Crystal Cruises is offering new six- and seven-day fall Mediterranean getaways that are high on port content and value but low in hassle and cost.
Overloaded journeyers can enjoy a choice of three easy respites, including free round-trip air transportation from New York, ship/airport transfers.
Featuring some of Europe’s most fascinating ports and the most beautiful destinations in the world, the new Crystal Serenity itineraries are:
October 17-24: Monte Carlo, Monaco; Florence/Livorno, Rome/Civitavecchia, and Sorrento, Italy; Kusadasi, Turkey; and Mykonos and Athens/Piraeus, Greece—
November 10-16: Athens/Piraeus and Santorini, Greece; Kotor, Montenegro; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and an overnight in Venice, Italy
November 16-23: Venice, Italy (overnight); Koper, Slovenia; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and Sicily/Catania, Naples, and Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy
“With new destinations almost every day, these ‘segment’ sailings are a great way for jetsetters to pack a lot into a little time,” says Jack Anderson, senior vice president sales and marketing. “Plus, the inclusion of round-trip Trans-Atlantic airfare and free shipboard credit to spend on whatever they wish make these voyages a tremendous value for discerning travelers.”
Guests may opt out of the complimentary air from JFK or air from other major U.S. gateways can be added-on.
With business-related amenities such as Technology Concierges, laptop rentals, administrative assistance, pan-ship Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art PC/Mac workstations, maximally-optimized satellite bandwidth technology, as well as personal pampering amenities such as Nobu Matsuhisa cuisine included, dinner at whatever time you choose via Open Dining by ReservationTM, European-trained concierges, the largest wine cellar at sea, free golf pro lessons, the ocean’s only Feng Shui spa and fitness center, 24/7 complimentary room service, and butlers in the Penthouses to do everything from unpack to having one’s favorite cocktail at the ready every evening, Crystal is business travelers’ #1 choice for cruising and staying connected.
