Crystal Serenity often visits our hometown of Santa Barbara on its journeys along the West Coast. This last weekend, three of our advisors—Tina, Kathy, and Sheila—were invited aboard for a special tour. The ocean view was spectacular, but more impressive were the enrichment programs, exclusive Nobu Matushisa Restaurant, and the diversity of themed itineraries that will spark or fulfill your cultural passions.
“Travel is about discovering the world, as well as yourself. Crystal’s renowned roster of complimentary enrichment invites you to pursue individual interests and challenge yourself to try new things…allowing you to write as many new stories about yourself and the world as you wish.”
For those who revel in days-at-sea for the sheer bliss of getting away and changing your typical routine, you will appreciate the vast offerings from Crystal Cruises. Feed your passion and learn something new while on vacation!
Enjoy complimentary progressive courses offered by experts: develop a second language, learn the secrets of floral arrangements, become a wine connoisseur, study Tai Chi, pick up a paint brush, dive into the subjects of health and wellness, or catch up with the digital world with Crystal’s Computer University@Sea.
For the (physically) adventurous, you’ll love the Discovery Channel™ with expert shark divers, underwater photographers, and deep-sea treasure hunters!
Crystal Cruises also offers one of the most diverse groups of themed cruises in the industry. Like the perfect pairing of fine wine and cuisine, themes are connected to the region you sail, presenting you with opportunities to raise a glass of Australian Shiraz en route “Down Under” or to golf the legendary courses of Great Britain, not to mention the unbelievable talent aboard the opera and ballet cruises. You can also expand your passion for jazz, big band, up your golf game with PGA pros, and more.
…And it only gets better! Crystal Cruises just announced they will be redesigning Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, including larger suites, upgrades to the user experience, like open dining versus the current reservation system, and updates the restaurants. Silk Road and The Sushi Bar, the specialty dining venues by famed Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, will be rebranded as Umi Uma – reflecting the Japanese word for Crystal’s eponymous seahorses. The authentic venues will still serve the inspired cuisine of Nobu, prepared by his personally trained chefs, and will remain the only Nobu restaurants at sea. As always, each guest may receive a complimentary experience at each restaurant.
