Crystal Cruises Offers Christian Heritage Tours in Europe

Crystal Cruises is offering new “Christian Heritage” tours in Europe for its upcoming season. Travelers can make a pilgrimage, attend mass, contribute to charitable works and witness the relics and architecture of sites of religious significance. The new tours include:

Dubrovnik, Croatia: Travelers can make a pilgrimage into Bosnia, where reported visions of the Virgin Mary have appeared at Medjugorje’s Apparition Hill.

Barcelona: Attend private mass with Crystal’s onboard priest at Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia.

Leknes / Lofoten, Norway: Offers three different trips to see the 18th century, wooden Russian-style Flakstad Church.

Sorrento, Italy: Assist the charity brotherhood of Pio Monte della Misericordia as part of the “You Care, We Care” voluntourism excursion.

La Coruna, Spain: See Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This trip includes a visit to the rooftop of the largest Romanesque church in Spain.

Southampton / London: Tour Winchester Cathedral, the seat of Anglo-Saxon and Norman royal power.

“This program expansion builds upon our incredibly popular Jewish heritage tours offered around the world,” says John Stoll, vice president of land and port operations. “Religious-related shore excursions are just one more way our guests can experience the unique history and culture of a destination, and perhaps even connect with their own personal ancestry, as well.”

Until February 28 the line is offering per-person “Book Now” fares for Crystal Symphony or Crystal Serenity starting from $1,360, based on double occupancy.
