New Options Emerge in Crystal's Europe Program

Crystal Cruises will visit 70 ports of call in 27 countries on 30 different European itineraries in 2006. From May through November, Crystal Cruises will sail both the Mediterranean and northern Europe, with more seven-day departures than last year complementing the line's primary portfolio of 10- to 14-day cruises. Maiden European calls this year include Ayr & Troon, Scotland; Tripoli, Libya; Gijón, Spain; Trieste, Italy; Spitsbergen, Norway; La Rochelle, France; and Riga, Latvia. Crystal also is offering two new pre- or post-cruise "Extended Land" programs. A five-night "Prague and Budapest" option will feature ancient castles, palaces and monuments, and will be available in conjunction with Mediterranean voyages from Rome. A five-night "Vienna and Salzburg" will showcase Austria's music history and is available in conjunction with Mediterranean cruises from Venice. Visit [www.crystalcruises.com].
