Crystal Cruises Introduces 2007 European Cruises

Crystal Cruises is offering destination-rich itineraries throughout Europe in 2007, from the ancient cities along the Aegean and Adriatic seas to the polar ice caps of the North Cape. The Crystal Serenity and Symphony cruise ships will explore a number of timeless European ports with rich, intriguing histories from April through November.

The Crystal Serenity's Mediterranean season includes cruises that begin or end in Toulon, France, as well as cruises departing from Venice, Lisbon, Athens, Monte Carlo, Rome, Istanbul and London. All itineraries offer at least one overnight port call or late night stay in the above cities, as well as Sorrento, Cannes, Odessa and Alexandria.

The Crystal Symphony's Northern Europe and Baltic season include itineraries that visit St. Petersburg for multiple days; overnight stops in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Bordeaux and Edinburgh. Other highlights include a two-week North Cape itinerary from Copenhagen to Stockholm that crosses the Arctic Circle en route to Spitsbergen. Other stops include the fascinating ports of Tallinn, Estonia, and Arhus, Denmark.

Crystal's European season also features three extended land programs, offered pre- or post-cruise on selected itineraries. Travelers can enjoy ancient castles, palaces and monuments in Prague and Budapest; appreciate Austria's musical history in Vienna and Salzburg; and experience the spectacular scenery of Europe aboard the Orient-Express.

They also can enjoy bonus upgrades of up to three categories. Holiday prices start at $695 per person, double occupancy, plus government fees and taxes. The Holiday Gift rates include upgrades of inside to outside staterooms, and are not valid for balcony or suite staterooms.
