The sailings range from 37 to 68 days and will include longer port stays and overnight calls.
The Crystal Symphony will sail three of the four Grand Journeys,

Greece, and will do an overnight call in Istanbul. The sailing departs

The ship will also sail a Stockholm-to-London voyage to the Baltic
and Northern Europe, including Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The 37-day
sailing includes four overnight stays, including in Amsterdam and
Copenhagen. The 11 August sailing will also include cruising around
Iceland for seven days before returning to conclude in Dover, England.
The Crystal Serenity will sail a Vancouver-to-Quebec City voyage over
42 nights. The ship will sail down the U.S. Pacific Coast and the
Mexican Riviera, then crossing the Panama Canal and cruising the
Caribbean. It will circle north toward New York then do a Canada/New
England portion of the cruise before concluding in Quebec City.

Crystal brand. The Serenity debuts on July 31 with a 12-day voyage out
of Marseille, France, to Lisbon. The Symphony will sail a seven-day
