Explore the world on a Crystal Adventure® and prepare to write a new story. A story of adventure trekking rainforests in Costa Rica or kayaking in Croatia. A story of culture eating the best pad thai in Bangkok or making pasta a la mano in a private Tuscan home. A story of simple pleasures, like tossing a coin in Rome’s Trevi Fountain or sipping cappuccinos at a Copenhagen café.

However you choose to write your story, Crystal will go to great lengths to make it happen. In addition to a vast selection of Crystal Adventures shore excursions in every port of call, you can also consider these options:

Crystal Private Adventures®

For those seeking a very personalized and exclusive experience, we will customize your time ashore to your exact specifications—complete with advanced confirmation of itineraries, admissions, meals, transportation, etc. (pre-reservation is required).

Crystal Boutique Adventures

Now tours include: Rhino Conservation Experience in South Africa, Cooking Lesson at a Michelin-starred Restaurant in Sorrento, Private Mass in the Sagrada Familia Crypt in Barcelona, and Site Running in Italy, New Zealand and Russia offering active guests the opportunity to combine fitness with sightseeing.

Private Services

Have your own private car and English-speaking driver waiting for you upon arrival in port, and decide what you want to do the day of; ideal for parties of 2 to 8, available for half- and full-day excursions; these can be booked via PCPC.
