Crystal Cruises is tempting the early booker market by releasing its 2023 Worldwide Atlas for its ocean ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.
The newly-released e-brochure showcases the complete Ocean Collection available with the ultra-luxe cruise line, spanning 70 voyages to 216 ports in 92 countries, including 10 maiden calls.
In 2023, Crystal Symphony will visit Australia and New Zealand in December, offering a 14-night sailing from Perth to Auckland on the 7th and a 15-night Auckland to Melbourne voyage on the 21st.
Port calls in Australasia include Busselton, Adelaide, Burnie, Eden, Sydney, Dunedin, Napier, Gisborne and Tauranga, with explorations of Milford, Doubtful and Dusky Sound in New Zealand’s south.
Crystal will also offer a 15-night close-to-home cruise from Singapore to Perth on 22 November.
Crystal Serenity will touch Australia in February/March with its own close-to-home voyages when the ship arrives in Brisbane at the end of an 18-night South Pacific sailing from Tahiti that departs on 11 February. Serenity will then embark on a 23-night itinerary to Singapore on 2 March. Both part of Crystal Serenity‘s World Cruise.
