Novelist Mary Higgins Clark will be onboard Crystal Cruises' “Beyond the Bosporous” sailing from Venice, Italy, to Istanbul, Turkey, on September 7, 2011.

Clark, author of 42 bestselling novels, is an active advocate for, and participant in, literacy programs. During the twelve day Black Sea/Mediterranean voyage, Clark will present to guests on the process of writing books, from conception to publication, with personal true tales behind the fiction and a Q&A session.

The Crystal Serenity sailing provides more time in Venice and Istanbul with overnights in both starting and ending ports. Additional calls include Katakolon, Greece; Navplion, Greece; Constanta, Romania; Odessa and Yalta, Ukraine; and Trabzon, Turkey.

The Two-for-One fares start at $7,485 per person, with savings on verandah and penthouse staterooms as part of Crystal’s big fall fare sale. All bookings include free air transportation from 24 North American gateway cities, and $2,000 per couple “As You Wish” shipboard credit.
