As the cruise industry sails into 2021, luxury cruise lines are adapting schedules and adding enticing new itineraries, many for late 2021, 2022 or 2023. Luxury Travel Advisor has singled out these upcoming itineraries that offer superb, in-depth immersion. Travelers can either “dive deeply” into exploring a targeted region of the globe or indulge their personal special-interest passions such as golfing in Ireland or experiencing a total Solar Eclipse in Antarctica.
For travelers seeking an exotic adventure in a part of the world “less traveled” by most Americans, we’d suggest checking out Crystal Cruises’ new “Grand Journey: Arabian Peninsula Adventure.” Sailing 14 days roundtrip from Dubai, the 848-passenger Crystal Symphony will depart March 10, 2023.
Itinerary highlights? Cruisers will experience Crystal’s maiden call at Khor Fakkan, U.A.E., home to Wadi Wurayah, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with wildlife, rocky outcrops and a scenic waterfall set amid the Hajar Mountains. Guests also will go ashore on a rare port call at Kuwait City. In addition, they’ll view Dubai’s spectacular Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Bahla Fort and Qal’at al-Bahrain in Bahrain.
