Crystal introduces excursions for late-risers

Gentings Crystal late-risers

Ultra luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises is to debut shore excursions for people who like to sleep in while on holiday, an industry first.

The new ‘Late-Risers Crystal Adventures’ will begin closer to noon, rather than the line’s typical excursion departure time, which can sometimes be as early as 8am.

The excursions will complement an optional later breakfast time onboard the line’s two ships Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.

“There are so many distinctly different types of travellers, each with their own idea of the perfect holiday. For many, this involves plenty of rest and relaxation,” said Crystal President Edie Rodriguez. “The Late-Risers Adventures allow guests who prefer more sleep in the morning, are perhaps still adjusting to a time change, or simply like to enjoy a long, leisurely breakfast, to keep their preferred schedule without missing out on any of the fascinating, expertly crafted Crystal Adventures in a select destination.”

The new tours will begin on 19 September on Crystal Serenity and 27 September on Crystal Symphony.

Example Late-Risers excursions include tours of Portugal’s Cathedral of Oporto, the Van Gough Museum and a revolutionary tour of Boston.
