Cultural Immersion

Cultural Immersion with Crystal Cruise

Dream and plan your next Crystal vacation – will it be an elegant journey to the four corners of the world on a luxury ocean ship or a monumental exploration of Europe’s grandest sites aboard a river yacht, or a serene island getaway aboard an intimate superyacht?

AN EXPEDITION TO WADI RUM

During Crystal’s sojourn through the southern Jordan valley commonly called “Valley of the Moon,” guests will venture through the vibrant colors that paint the weathered cliffs crimson and black, through the mountainous wilderness to the camp of a local Bedouin tribe. Most modern residents of Wadi Rum claim a strong Bedouin heritage, and this evening presents a fascinating opportunity to learn about the traditionally nomadic people. Wandering the striking terrain, you’ll come to understand the desert’s aforementioned nickname – and why this landscape has set the stage for several major films – as the moonlight hits the edges of the granite cliffs with dramatic flair.

HIDDEN HUNGARIAN GEMS ALONG THE DANUBE

Sailing from Vienna, the Crystal Mozart itineraries are packed with European treats for the senses, from the strains of masters’ concertos echoing in the cathedrals of Austria, to the scent of blintzes and streusels emanating from the German and Slovakian bakeries.

A PRIVATE CONCERT AT AMSTERDAM’S ROYAL CONCERTGEBOUW

When Crystal Bach sails from Amsterdam June 18, she’ll kick off her maiden voyage with a Crystal Signature event worthy of her namesake and the other musical masters that shaped this storied region. During an exclusive, complimentary Crystal Signature Event offered on all Crystal Bach voyages, guests will be transported to the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, considered one of the finest concert halls in the world, for a private tour and concert.
