An impressive 144 new handpicked destinations is the standout feature of Crystal Cruises’ 2025 itineraries, with Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony set to visit 112 countries and 281 ports, including debut visits to the Faroe Islands, Haifa and Shanghai.
“We’re excited to offer both past and future Crystal guests an inspiring assortment of itineraries in 2025,” said A&K Travel Group CEO, Cristina Levis.
After completing a World Cruise in May 2025, Crystal Serenity will depart from Marseille and spend the summer sailing the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas, visiting destinations like Pablo Picasso’s hometown of Málaga, the half-timbered town of Ronne and Riga, the capital of Latvia known for its pedestrian-only medieval Old Town.
Guests will also have the opportunity to visit Longyearbyen, the largest inhabited area of Svalbard in Norway that is famous for its views of the Northern Lights.
Highlights aboard Crystal Symphony include the chance to attend one of the world’s greatest sporting events. The ship will visit Monaco at the same time as the principality hosts the Formula One Grand Prix.
Mediterranean calls include Haifa, Dubrovnik and Cyprus, in addition to Greece’s increasingly popular destinations of Zakynthos, Corfu and Santorini.
The latter half of 2025 will be spent in the Middle East visiting a variety of destinations ranging from the small Egyptian port of Safaga (Luxor), to Dubai, known for luxury shopping and ultramodern architecture, to the more remote Salalah, the third-largest city in the Sultanate of Oman, known for its marine life.
“Guests onboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony will have the opportunity to explore a treasure trove of lesser-visited corners of the world and check off some truly once-in-a-lifetime bucket list destinations with bespoke, industry-leading experiences designed by Abercrombie & Kent,” Levis added.
The 2025 voyages will be available to book from September 27.
