Crystal Cruises has unveiled its 2022 Grand Voyage, Caribbean Idylls & Mediterranean Masterpieces, a 132-night cruise on Crystal Serenity departing Miami on 17JAN and returning to Los Angeles on 29MAY 2022.

Reservations for the 2022 Grand Voyage will be open to 2022 World Cruise booked guests for an exclusive 10-day booking window from 14-23SEP and to the public on 24SEP 2021.

The journey will take guests to 82 ports in 32 countries with 11 overnights in iconic cities such as Istanbul, Monte Carlo, Naples and Cannes, as well as the exclusive island enclaves of St. Barts, Madeira, the Canary Islands and more. 2022 Grand Voyage will rarely repeat a port of call, and will provide guests the opportunity to for explorations in each region. The new Grand Voyage replaces the line’s 2022 World Cruise, which was cancelled because many countries on the original itinerary remain uncertain in their ability to welcome guests back at this time.

“We know our guests, especially our extended voyage guests, consider Crystal their second home and that both our guests and crew are part of one large Crystal family. Captain Birger Vorland and his crew are excited to welcome these guests back home to Crystal since having said goodbye to the World Cruise guests in Perth last year,” said Jack Anderson, president of Crystal.

The 2022 Grand Voyage’s 132-night itinerary was designed for travellers with a pent-up desire for longer cruise vacations, while also offering those with more limited time for the option to choose from 11 cruise segments ranging from nine to 16-nights. With itineraries for each voyage segment and featured destinations including the Caribbean, Morocco, the Cote d’Azur, the Amalfi Coast, the Greek Isles, the Black Sea, the Holy Land and more, there is variety for customizable combinations of regional exploration.

Caribbean Idylls & Mediterranean Masterpieces Highlights

The highlighted feature of the 2022 Grand Voyage is the number of islands on the itinerary with 45 in total, including 19 calls in the Caribbean, and an immersive exploration of the Canary Islands with calls in six out of seven of the main islands and an overnight call in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Other island explorations include the Cape Verde Islands, the Azores, Madeira, Gibraltar, the Balearic Isles, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta, Crete, Cyprus, the Greek Isles and Bermuda.

Travellers looking for rare port experiences will enjoy several seldom visited ports of call including San Blas Islands, Panama; St. Croix, USVI; Ile des Saints, Guadeloupe; Cagliari, Sardinia; Praia and Santo Antão, Cape Verde Islands; Gaeta, Italy; Syracuse, Sicily and more.

Rounding out the voyage are port-rich trans-Atlantic crossings, an abundance of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, a transit of the Panama Canal, and explorations of cultural sites.

When Crystal Serenity sets sail on the 2022 Grand Voyage, all guests (who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine) will be fully vaccinated as a requirement of the company’s Crystal Clean+ protocols. Guests 12 and older must be fully inoculated with a COVID-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to departure for all 2022 Ocean voyages including those guests embarking in Miami. One hundred percent of Crystal’s officers and crew fleetwide will continue to be vaccinated in 2022 as a requirement for employment.
