If you can’t spare the time for an extended world cruise, Crystal Cruises has come up with journeys that allow a brief taste of the line’s luxury offering.

Crystal has unveiled an expanded selection of Crystal Getaways – abbreviated voyages derived from longer existing itineraries for 2018. 

New to the roster of Getaways are three shortened segments of Crystal Serenity’s 2018 World Cruise voyages, exploring South-east Asia and the South Pacific, with cruises ranging in length from six to 14 days. 

“The newly added close-to-home Crystal getaway sailings provide the opportunity to discover new cultures and adventures without having to travel too far from home,” says Karen Christensen, senior vice president and managing director, Australia and New Zealand. 

A highlight will be a six-day Far East Vistas Getaway between Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore aboard Crystal Serenity, departing March 22, 2018, a cruise curated from the 16-day Far East Vistas voyage.
