Crystal Cruises Adds Libya to "Italian Splendor" Voyage

Crystal Cruises is adding Libya's historic capital, Tripoli, to its November 16 “Italian Splendor” Mediterranean cruise. 

With Libyan authorities lifting its 20-year ban on tourist visas, travelers can explore this rare Middle Eastern coastline.
The addition of Tripoli enables guests to visit a largely unspoiled country in North Africa.  Beginning and ending with overnights in Venice and Barcelona, the 11-day voyage also features visits to Dubrovnik and Sicily, Naples, Civitavecchia (for Rome), and Livorno (for Florence and Tuscany).

Tripoli offers some of the best-preserved cities and archaeological relics in the world from Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Phoenician, and Arab-Islamic civilizations— the sand of the Saharan desert covers roughly 90% of the country. 

Through this Thanksgiving cruise, families can enjoy free berths, group perks and family savings via the “Crystal Family Memories Program.”

There is also a “Two-for-One” promotion offering per person, double occupancy, fares starting at $5,470, including $1,000 “All Inclusive–As You Wish” shipboard spending credits and complimentary air transportation from many North American gateways (or cruise-only fare reduction).
