Twenty-nine new Crystal Adventures have also been made available, catering to a wide array of guest interests, including fine cuisine, exploration, and culture-seekers.

- Québec City: Join Huron natives in a Friendship Dance and sacred ceremonies following a traditional feast of bison, wapiti meat and Indian bannock bread.

- New York: Sail past the Statue of Liberty to the newly-completed 9/11 Memorial or enjoy an exclusive, private visit to the American Museum of Natural History while closed to the public.
