Crystal Cruises is expanding its opportunities for family-friendly summer travel with new ‘Kids Sail Free’ offers in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. On four June and July voyages, junior cruisers age 17 and under can travel for free when sharing a third berth stateroom with two adults.
This is the first time ever that the popular programme has been offered in the Baltic, with three Crystal Serenity sailings of 10 nights each on 25th June and 20th and 30th July through Stockholm (overnight), Tallinn, St Petersburg (two overnights), Helsinki, Berlin/Warnemünde and Copenhagen.
A seven-night sailing through the Mediterranean departs 6th July on Crystal Symphony, visiting Istanbul and Kuşadasi, Mykonos, Sicily/Taormina, Sorrento and Rome.
“With attractive savings for bringing the kids along, combined with incredible opportunities to see and learn about Europe’s history first-hand, these cruises offer not only great value, but also invaluable experiences in terms of family bonding, world education and memories,” said Philip Ordever, Crystal’s Vice-President of International Sales and Marketing.
Crystal Cruises’ dedicated onboard children’s and teens’ space is a rarity among luxury cruise lines. During the summer and holiday times, junior activities directors host complimentary supervised activities onboard ranging from behind-the scenes tours to cooking classes and scavenger hunts. The Crystal Visions Enrichment Programme also offers entertaining education, including Magic Castle at Sea shows and classes, iPad Digital Filmmaking classes in association with USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, and presentations from expert speakers. Every cruise also has babysitting services, ‘finicky eater’ foods, movies, library books, family-friendly excursions and more available.
All-inclusive ‘Book Now’ fares for the four luxury European cruises start from £2,050 per person if booked by 28th February. The Crystal Family Memories programme also offers additional free berths and perks for groups of six or more.
With sophisticated tours worldwide, enriching learning opportunities, international gourmet cuisine, complimentary voluntourism excursions, and a host of other activities for all ages, the Crystal experience gives families exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime access to creating intimate bonds, gleaning a global education, and building lifelong memories while sailing in elegance.
