Crystal Cruises has made its earliest ever itinerary announcements, revealing cruises sailing in late 2016 – and they’re available to book with SixStarCruises.co.uk right now.
These luxury cruise itineraries are set to include destinations ranging from Alaska and New Orleans to the Philippines and Berlin – with greater emphasis on wider choice and even more memorable experiences ashore. Details have even emerged for Crystal itineraries in early 2017, which you can find out more about below.
Luxury cruise lovers can expect a choice of shorter 5- to 12-day Crystal voyages, along with more Maiden Calls and more overnight stays in the world’s most remarkable ports. With these early cruise announcements, Crystal Cruises is creating more choice and more opportunities to really experience some of the world’s most beautiful and secluded ports.
Now very few of us know what we’ll be doing in 2016 or 2017. That’s practically the distant future right now. But if you’ve always wanted to take a luxury cruise, these new 2016 sailings from Crystal could be the perfect opportunity to get saving.
By making a couple of small changes now, in two or three years’ time you could have enough money put aside to cover the cost of an ultra-luxury, ultra-exclusive Crystal cruise.
Did you know?
Smokers and coffee lovers – if you go without your morning take-out coffee and daily pack of twenty starting from this weekend, you could save around £6800 by December 2016. That’s £1.95 for a take-out Americano and £8.74 for 20 big-brand cigarettes, multiplied by 638 working days from now until 22 December 2016 when you set sail – and you’ve essentially covered the cost of your luxury cruise.
Your £6800 could get you a fly-cruise aboard the Crystal Serenity, setting sail for the Caribbean in December 2016 – depending on potential changes in air fare between now and then.
If you opt for the cruise alone without flights included, for just £4999 per person, you’ll have £1800 left to spend on flights, upgrades or even the cost of another passenger. This voyage would take you from Miami to Cartagena in Colombia, via Mexico’s Costa Maya and the divers’ paradise of Cozumel – an incredible way to spend Christmas in 2016.
You can book your 2016 Crystal cruise over the phone today – but what will your cruise actually look like in two or three years’ time? We know the emphasis on fine dining, exclusive shore experiences and exceptional personal service will still be as strong as ever, but what about changes in entertainment? Who knows, maybe luxury cruise lines will even offer their own cloud networks and Google Glass for passengers, allowing for more connected and more interactive shore excursions and entertainment on board.
We don’t know what kind of advances are going to make their way onto luxury cruise ships by 2016 and 2017. But one thing we can be certain of is the price – and with plenty of time to budget for your booking, that ultra-luxury cruise doesn’t have to seem like such a distant dream.
