Crystal unveils 2019/20 President’s Cruises

Crystal Cruises has announced its President’s Cruises for 2019 and 2020! tenor

Passengers will be joined by Crystal President and CEO Tom Wolber on December 1, 2019, for the “Panama Panorama” cruise sailing from Fort Lauderdale to Caldera aboard Crystal Symphony and the December 7, 2020, “Icons of Southeast Asia” aboard Crystal Symphony for an extended journey from Singapore.

Wolber will be accompanied by his wife, Sharon, and will host guests for onboard receptions, Q&A sessions and special shore excursions.

“The President’s Cruise is a long-held tradition for Crystal, one that I look forward to each year, as it is a fantastic opportunity to truly connect with our guests and enjoy our shared love of exploring the world with Crystal,” Wolber said.

The best part? If you book before October 31 you can save some serious dollars, with the 2019 cruise starting at US$3,810 per person, and 2020 cruises starting at US$4,849 for the 15-day voyage and US$10,429 for the 30-day voyage.

Crystal Symphony’s 10-day “Panama Panorama” President’s Cruise sails from Fort Lauderdale and spends overnights in Cartagena, Colombia; Panama City, Panama; and Caldera, Costa Rica, also transiting the Panama Canal.

The voyage highlights the outdoor pursuits of the warm Caribbean region, as well as the Old World influences of Spanish settlements and historic sites.

In 2020, the 15-day “Icons of Southeast Asia” President’s Cruise offers extended explorations of Thailand and Vietnam, overnighting in Singapore; Bangkok, Thailand; Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam, plus calls in Ko Samui, Thailand and Sihanoukville, Cambodia, allowing for day trips to Angkor Wat.

Guests continuing on the full 30-day “Grand Far East Asia Celebration” will spend two nights in Hong Kong and return to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi for overnight stays, plus an overnight New Year’s Eve celebration in Singapore with calls in Da Nang, Vietnam and Sihanoukville, Cambodia.
