More than just food for thought on Crystal Cruises...
Crystal Cruises debatably has the market cornered when it comes to onboard enrichment lectures. And this year’s European season is no exception with a cerebral cast of headliners that includes Gandhi, U.S. Generals, novelist Jeffrey Archer, and Jeff Greenberg, the casting genius behind Modern Family.
Arun Gandhi, peace activist and founder of the M.K. Gandhi Institute appear on Crystal on May 9 for a Barcelona to London cruise. General Anthony Zinn, four-star Marine Corps General and former commander in chief of U.S. Central Command, goes on board for the May 21 London to Hamburg itinerary. One of the most popular and entertaining speakers, Jeff Greenberg, Emmy Award-winning casting director of Modern Family and Frasier takes the podium on the May 24 London to Rome itinerary.
Other speakers include Lord Jeffrey Archer, bestselling author of fifteen novels such as Kane & Abel and the recent Clifton Chronicles series who speaks during the June 19 Venice to Istanbul voyage, and Joel Harper, celebrity trainer for Dr. Oz, Olympic medalists, and PBS’s best-selling Firming After 50 will speak to passengers during the October 12 Athens to Venice voyage.
Also joining the Serenity or Sympony in Europe will be astronaut Mark Kelly and wife, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and legendary football coach Don Shula.. As part of a new “Local Insights” program this year, Crystal is also bringing aboard local European dignitaries and experts to share “insider” information on the region’s life and customs.
“Our world travelers are not only adventure-seekers, they’re knowledge-seekers, so our on-board presenters need to deliver smart, stimulating, and shrewdly entertaining enlightenment that not only provides food for thought, but also sparks lively discussion among guests throughout our voyages,” says Chris Corrigall, manager, entertainment.
From now through December 2012, Crystal will make 35 seven and fourteen day cruises to areas in the eastern and western Mediterranean, Greek Isles, Black Sea, northwest Africa, western Europe, including Iceland and the British Isles, the Middle East, the western and eastern Baltic Sea, Scandinavia, and Arctic Circle.
The cruise line is offering special “Book Now” fares from now through April 30 that start at $1,945 per person/double occupancy for seven days in the Mediterranean, with additional savings available when combining select voyages. Some attractive air add-ons are also available from more than 90 North American airports.
Crystal’s award-winning, luxury cruises always include a diverse selection of thought-provoking, scholarly, and sophisticated enrichment activities that provide extensive onboard choices for cultured world travelers.
