Cruise Itinerary

Often called the gateway to Europe, the port city of Rotterdam is full of old-world charm. The harbor offers amazing views and a maze of wharves and canals, along with towering spires make for a beautiful sight. Take a stroll and duck into one of the pubs or eateries along the way. Only three pre World War II buildings in the city centre have survived and are worth a look – city hall, St. Laurence church and the White House. Explore the Museum Boymans van Beuningen, which houses a unique collection dating from the 14th century, or the Museum Voor Volkenkunde – home to ethnological exhibits. Exquisite architecture can be seen in many areas of Rotterdam, most notably in the Delfshaven quarter of the city – where 18th century houses are on display. For a laugh, check out Kijk-Kubus, an upside-down house.

The Molde area is rich in scenic attractions, including the Trollstigen Mountain Road, the Atlantic Road, and the 222 mountain peaks of Molde Panorama that offer exceptional vistas for photographers to capture. Go for a hike, explore the local caves, or stay in town and enjoy the excellent shopping and dining that Molde has to offer.

Geiranger is a picturesque fjord town nestled in a crook of winding, namesake Geirangerfjord. Nearby, the Seven Sisters Waterfall takes a 5,000-foot plunge.

Beautiful Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city, is one of the most popular ports of call on a cruise up the fjords. Step off the ship into the medieval Bryggen wharf area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, where small boats line the harbor and wooden gabled buildings stand proud along the waterfront. Bergen’s rich maritime tradition goes back nearly 1,000 years, including the years the town played an important part in the Hanseatic League, the trading empire that dominated maritime commerce in the region between the 14th and 18th centuries. The city is one of Europe’s oldest settlements, and its cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways lead to emerald-green parks, medieval cathedrals and stone fortresses that kept enemies at bay centuries ago. It’s also eminently walkable, with historic buildings and excellent markets selling everything from fish and produce to trinkets and souvenirs. Surrounded by mountains and thick forest, and sitting halfway between Geiranger to the north and Stavanger to the south, Bergen offers plenty to do outside the city too. Whether you sign up for a guided excursion or venture out on your own, you’ll be sure to fall in love with Bergen.

Your jumping-off point for the highlights of Edinburgh, including historic Edinburgh Castle, housing the Scottish crown jewels and the palace that was once home to Mary Queen of Scots.

The skirl of Highland bagpipes calls you ashore. Go in search of your clan tartan, and “Nessie,” the spurious monster often sighted in Loch Ness.

Inhabited for more than 6,000 years, the Isle of Lewis has a rich history and rugged beauty. Explore the islands varied scenery from fjord-like lochs and dramatic sea-cliffs to barren peat moors and romantic heather covered uplands; marvel at the mysterious Standing Stones at Callanish, the most remarkable piece of antiquity in the Western Isles; and shop for famous Harris Tweed, hand-woven and uniquely dyed using indigenous plants.

The largest town on Skye – located in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland – this port’s harbor is fringed by steep cliffs and the town’s Gaelic heritage in evident in the local attractions. Harry Potter fans will recognize that the town is home to the fictional Pride of Portree. Everything is a short stroll away within Portree, and nearby Glasgow provides further opportunities for exploration. The mountainous Isle of Skye provides breathtaking vistas from nearly every destination. Play a round of golf in nearby Sconser or go pony trekking at Skeabost. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and bird watching. Sample the local whisky at Talisker Distillery in Carbost or simply find a quiet spot to admire the views.

Belfast has emerged from decades of conflict to become one of Ireland’s most intriguing cities. In the 19th century, its location on the banks of the River Lagan made it an industrial center for ropemaking, shipbuilding, tobacco and textiles. And this legacy shaped much of its architecture: Grand Edwardian and Victorian municipal buildings and warehouses are found throughout the city alongside telltale scars of its more recent past. While the legacy of Belfast’s complex conflict known as The Troubles still looms, there are many other sides of Northern Ireland’s capital to explore, from the quaint streets of the Cathedral Quarter to the newly regenerated Titanic Quarter, where the ill-fated RMS Titanic was constructed. Belfast is also gathering momentum as an up-and-coming gourmet destination, with a new generation of chefs producing food to get excited about. Beyond the city limits, County Down and neighboring County Antrim have a wealth of things to see and do. Any lingering negative preconceptions will evaporate after a short time in this fascinating and welcoming city.

Dublin works its magic on you slowly. Founded by the Vikings on the banks of the River Liffey in the 9th century, the city occupies one of the loveliest natural settings of any European capital. Its architecture is a jumble of different periods, including the medieval cobblestone streets of Temple Bar, the elegant terraces and leafy squares of the Georgian period and the modern architecture of the revitalized Docklands district. Dublin’s compact heart is divided by the languorous flow of the Liffey before it enters the wide expanse of Dublin Bay. Both gritty and gracious, the city streets inspired some of the most celebrated writers of the 19th and 20th centuries, acknowledged by its status as a UNESCO World City of Literature. But while its heritage is undeniably a major draw for visitors, these days Dublin is vibrant with thriving technology firms and a young population eager to make their mark. It might arrive via an impromptu chat with a local or a quiet pint of Guinness in a historic pub, but by the time you leave, Dublin will have charmed you.

The city that launched the Beatles, Liverpool is still a hardworking docks town, offering a lively pub scene and a branch of London’s Tate Gallery. Sample shore excursions: The Beatles; The Roman City of Chester.

Wander through the ancient town center built around St. Cybi’s Church, which is built inside one of Europe’s only three-walled Roman forts (the fourth wall being the sea, which used to come up to the fort). Explore the Ucheldre Arts Centre, then relax with a pint or cup of tea at one of Holyhead’s charming pubs.

Corkonians are fiercely proud of their hometown, so much so that it’s jokingly referred to as the People’s Republic of Cork. And there is a lot to love about Ireland’s second city. Hugging the banks of the River Lee, it takes its name from corcaigh, the Gaelic word for “marshy.” With its origins in the 7th century, Cork enjoyed a flourishing period as a merchant center in the 18th and 19th centuries, with grand buildings like the elegant Cork City Hall bearing testimony to this status. On the north bank of the River Lee is the quaint neighborhood of Shandon with its landmark clock tower of St. Anne’s Church. The city’s heart is set on an island sandwiched between two channels of the Lee that open out into one of Europe’s largest natural harbors at Cobh. Cobh brought the city prosperity (and also happened to be the final port of call for the ill-fated RMS Titanic). And it was from Cobh that over 2.5 million immigrants caught their final glimpse of their home country as they departed in search of a better life in the United States between 1848 and 1950. There’s a more modern side to Cork, with a thriving university quarter, pubs, bars and restaurants. Whatever your interests, you will find a side of Cork to love too.

From this busy port city tour to canal-laced Brugge; Brussels, home of the European Union; and Ghent, mecca for chocolate lovers. Sample shore excursion: Antwerp, City of Diamonds.

Kosher Trips to Ireland and Scotland

A Journey Through Ireland and Scotland: Exploring History, Culture, and Beauty

Nestled in the heart of Europe, Ireland and Scotland stand as timeless guardians of rich history, enchanting folklore, and breathtaking landscapes. Embarking on a tour of these Celtic lands is akin to stepping into a living tapestry woven with threads of ancient myths, medieval castles, and verdant hills. From the lively streets of Dublin to the misty glens of the Scottish Highlands, each corner unveils a new chapter in the story of these remarkable nations.

Kosher Trips to Ireland and Scotland

History and Culture

To understand Ireland and Scotland is to delve into a saga of resilience, artistic brilliance, and cultural heritage. Both countries boast a lineage steeped in Celtic traditions, evidenced by their languages, music, and folklore.

Ireland, often referred to as the “Emerald Isle,” is renowned for its vibrant green landscapes, evocative ruins, and warm hospitality. The island’s history stretches back millennia, from the ancient Celts and their druidic rituals to the tumultuous era of Viking invasions and Norman conquests. Ireland’s struggle for independence in the 20th century further solidified its national identity, celebrated in songs, poems, and spirited pub conversations.

This duration allows for a comprehensive itinerary that covers key highlights.

Ultimately, the duration of your tour depends on your preferences and priorities. Whether you have ten days or more, Ireland and Scotland offer abundant experiences to enchant and inspire every traveler.

Can You Go to Scotland and Ireland on One Trip?

Yes, it’s possible to visit Scotland and Ireland in one trip, especially considering their proximity and the ease of travel between the two countries. Many travelers opt for a combined tour of Scotland and Ireland to maximize their experience and explore the unique offerings of both destinations within a single itinerary.

To maximize your time, consider flying into one country and out of the other to minimize backtracking. Alternatively, you can use ferry services or flights between the two countries to maximize efficiency.

While a combined trip to Scotland and Ireland may require careful planning and prioritization, it offers a unique opportunity to experience the best of both countries and create unforgettable memories.

What is the Best Way to Travel from Ireland to Scotland?

Air and sea are the most common and convenient ways to travel from Ireland to Scotland.

When choosing the best way to travel from Ireland to Scotland, consider factors such as cost, convenience, travel time, and personal preferences. Both air and sea options offer advantages, so select the option that best suits your needs and itinerary. Additionally, be sure to check the latest travel information, including any entry requirements or travel restrictions, before making your arrangements.

CRYSTAL SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF MARK POWER

A DRYDOCK WITH A DIFFERENCE: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH PHOTOGRAPHER MARK POWER

By Zoe Hearne

Perhaps you’re thinking a bit bolder now and envision finally being able to check off bucket list locales and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Maybe reconnecting with your partner during a romantic escape aboard a luxury cruise ship known for its dreamy Italian luxury linens is your top priority. Whether you’re looking to effortlessly island-hop in the Caribbean or do a cultural deep dive in a country such as Japan or Iceland, a Crystal cruise ship can be the ultimate home-away-from-home. Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony will take you to enriching ports of call all around the globe while also deepening your appreciation for fine food and wine, ancient and modern culture, and each other.

As you contemplate the best places to go , here’s a look at some of the hottest cruise destinations for 2024 and the Crystal itineraries that can take you there.

CARRIBEAN LUXURY CRUISE

The Caribbean

Travelers from the United States love the ease and convenience of the Caribbean — which ranks among the top cruise destinations in the world — and Crystal’s 2024 sailings in the region offer ample time for sunning on the pool deck as you enjoy ocean views and for heading off the ship to experience local culture on a shore excursion.

One island that’s a must-visit is St. Lucia. Located in the Southern Caribbean and famous for its lush landscape and postcard-perfect twin Piton peaks, it offers a beguiling blend of culture and chill. Exploring, you’ll encounter traditional Creole cottages painted in rainbow hues, verdant fields of ripening bananas, and local artisans skilled in crafts such as silk-screening and wood-carving. Prefer to relax? Soaking up some sun on a stretch of golden sand, such as Reduit Beach, is the perfect way to absorb St. Lucia’s tropical glow. Crystal Serenity will call on the island’s capital, Castries, during multiple Caribbean sailings in late 2024.

The Western Caribbean is also a popular cruise destination — and one of the region’s top ports is George Town, Grand Cayman. Even before you step ashore, you’ll know why. The vivid turquoise waters and white-sand beaches that ring this flat and arid self-governing British territory are among the most spectacular in the Caribbean. And what better way to appreciate it all than to take a helicopter tour? During this Crystal excursion, you’ll fly over North Sound to gaze down at the sand bar area known as Stingray City, where visitors gather to interact with wild but playful Southern Atlantic stingrays. Other sights you’ll enjoy while soaring above the island include the submerged wreck of the Navy ship USS Kittiwake , world-renowned Seven Mile Beach, and Crystal Serenity at anchor. More down-to-earth pursuits, such as duty free shopping, are also available from the tender pier in George Town.

Crystal Serenity will visit Grand Cayman during several Panama Canal transits in 2024. Guests on these August, November, and December sailings will also experience another top tropical hot spot, Costa Rica, when the ship calls on the Pacific coastal port of Puerto Caldera. In June, Crystal’s transit sailing will instead visit the Costa Rican port of Quepos. Either of these exciting itineraries will allow guests to appreciate the beauty of Central America’s premier playground for nature-lovers. This is the place to spy on adorable capuchin monkeys and three-toed sloths or to enjoy a walk through a cloud forest inhabited by tiny hummingbirds and giant blue morpho butterflies.

If exploring the Mayan culture and architectural sites along Costa Maya is on your list of must-do’s, two Crystal Serenity sailings in December 2024 will call on Cozumel and offer shore excursions to the ruins at seaside Tulum or jungle-clad San Gervasio.

NORTHERN EUROPE LUXURY CRUISE

Baltic & Northern Europe

It’s taken a little while, but travelers have finally discovered just how incredible it is to explore Northern Europe on a cruise. While the Med gets tons of buzz, the countries of the Baltic Sea and North Atlantic offer just as much when it comes to natural beauty, heritage, art, and cuisine. Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Netherlands, Scotland, Ireland, and Iceland are all home to culture-rich capitals, mind-blowing landscapes formed by volcanoes and glaciers, and captivating Nordic and Celtic traditions. Better still, a cruise with Crystal is a convenient and luxurious way to visit several of these countries during a single vacation.

In July, August, and September 2024, Crystal Symphony will explore the region during a series of itineraries ranging from seven to 38 nights. The longest sailing will visit 15 historic ports — including Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallinn, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Reykjavik — in nine countries, including three days docked in Copenhagen and three days visiting ports along the coast of Scotland. Guests will enjoy a rich sampler of Northern European cultures complemented by Crystal’s superb enrichment program of guest speakers.

Most curious about Iceland? A seven-night circumnavigation roundtrip from Reykjavik in September 2024 will visit five ports and even offer the chance to spot the Northern Lights.

asia luxury cruise

What country ranks atop many travelers’ bucket list for 2024? According to Geoffrey Kent, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent (Crystal is a division of A&K Travel Group), it’s Japan . This island nation, which only fully reopened to tourism in late 2022 in the wake of the global pandemic, is ideal for exploration by cruise ship, with a bounty of coastal ports spanning the bustling modernity of Tokyo to the beaches and tropical climate of the southern island of Okinawa.

While Crystal Symphony will spend early 2024 cruising to other top destinations in Asia , in early 2025 the ship will call on Japan. An 11-night cruise on Crystal Symphony from Hong Kong to Yokohama/Tokyo in late January 2025 is specifically focused on the country, visiting six Japanese ports. But if Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Taiwan, and Singapore are also on your wish list, you can board Crystal Symphony in Singapore earlier in January to enjoy a 27-night journey that visits all of those destinations.

AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND LUXURY CRUISE

Australia & New Zealand

Summer Down Under is from December to March and in March 2024 Crystal Serenity will say G’day to Australia & New Zealand with an 18-night sailing that starts in Auckland, New Zealand and ends in Perth/Freemantle, Australia. In between the ship will call on historic Tauranga and picturesque Picton in New Zealand before crossing the Tasman Sea to Sydney for an overnight. Then it’s on to Eden, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Western Australia’s Busselton (for Margaret River winery visits) before arriving in Perth.

ALASKA LUXURY CRUISE

Have you witnessed the visual majesty of our 49th State in person? If your answer is no, you’re missing out on one of the premier cruise experiences in North America. Cruise packages to Alaska are pretty much offered by every cruise line, but what sets Crystal’s Alaska itineraries apart from other cruise line offers is the dedication of its crew to providing guests with a five-star experience centered on stellar service and exceptional local and seasonal cuisine.

Alaska itineraries in July and August 2024 aboard Crystal Serenity include seven-night roundtrip sailings from Vancouver (calling on Sitka, Skagway, and Ketchikan) and seven-night one-way Vancouver to Seward/Anchorage cruises (or vice versa) that will call on Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait, and Sitka. Excursions range from dogsledding and glacier flightseeing to rainforest walks and wildlife safaris — moments that will redefine how you view the wilderness experience.

ATHENS TO ROME LUXURY CRUISE

The Mediterranean

How could this perennial favorite not make the list? The Mediterranean is forever a hot spot because it’s home to many of the world’s most popular travel destinations, from Spain, Portugal, and Morocco in the West to Greece, Turkey, and Croatia in the East. This sets the scene for Crystal to deliver a vast array of culture-centric itineraries and farm-to-table culinary experiences . Crystal Symphony will spend five months of 2024 (May, June, July, October, and November) in the Mediterranean and offer 17 sailings, ranging from seven to 12 nights. Want afull Mediterranean immersion? Go all in with Crystal’s 60-night epic Grand Voyage in October and November.

Whether it’s your dream to sail through the sun-splashed Greek Isles, double occupancy with the person you love in one of Crystal Symphony ’s newly refreshed staterooms or suites, or to discover the palate-warming flavors, stunning architecture, and sensual rhythms of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, the Crystal team will make sure that your Mediterranean journey is one that’s never to be forgotten.

PS: It’s not too early to start planning for 2025, when Crystal’s two ships will offer exciting itineraries enhanced by bigger and better onshore experiences in 112 countries.

The line's " Kimberley Expedition: Waterfalls and Wandjinas " will take passengers to places along the coast few passengers are able to visit to see the stunning teal waters and horizontal waterfalls of Talbot Bay, sample wines in the Hunter River Region and check out nature preserves in Wyndham.

Details: The first sailing, from Darwin to Broome, embarks on June 12. The final voyage, from Broome to Darwin, departs on Aug. 1. Prices start from $6,134 per person ($613 per person, per night), double occupancy, for the July 2 cruise. All accommodations are suites with balconies.

Celebrity's 'Best of Japan' and 'Vietnam and Thailand' cruises

The number of voyages in Asia was trending upward notably prior to 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic brought cruising in the region to an extended halt. And it's once again on the rise. Following that curve, Celebrity Cruises will be running new 11- to 13-night Asia sailings in 2024 on two ships — Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Solstice — that bring stops in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand.

What's notable about the offerings is that they will aim to immerse passengers further into the destinations by including overnights in a total of 11 ports across all itineraries. That means more time to explore Hanoi's Old Quarter as the sun sets, indulge in nighttime gastronomy in Hong Kong, visit one of Bangkok's many markets, or learn why Osaka is known for street food.

Details: Celebrity Millennium's " Best of Japan " cruises run from early mid-March to early October. At press time, the least expensive fares — for a 12-night sailing — start from $1,330 per person ($111 per person, per night) for an inside cabin. It travels round-trip from Yokohama and visits Hiroshima, Pusan and other ports, including Osaka, where the ship will overnight.

Celerbrity Solstice's Vietnam and Thailand cruises kick off in mid-January and run through March. The ship will resume them again in the fall of 2024 and run through the winter season. Prices start from $1,255 per person ($105 per person, per night) for an inside cabin. The voyage sails from Hong Kong to Singapore with stops in Da Nang and Koh Samui, plus overnights in Hanoi and Bangkok.

SeaDream's 'Yachting the Adriatic & Greek Isles' sailing

Here's one to put on your radar if you're looking to book — but not necessarily sail — in 2024. It's a new Mediterranean itinerary that doesn't start up for nearly three more years, in 2026. The SeaDream routing brings stops at seven ports that are rarely visited by cruise passengers. During the seven-night voyages, there will be calls at Primosten, Croatia; Cesme, Turkey; Cetubal, Portugal; and Kythira, Kythnos, Syvota and Tinos, Greece — making these sailings unique and well-suited to anyone who loves the region but who's looking for new places to experience.

SeaDream's small ships, each of which carries just 112 people, are able to reach locales about which passengers on megaships can only fantasize. Couple that with excellent service, and you'll be visiting the Our Lady of Loretto statue in Primosten, touring the Cesme Castle and lounging on stunning Greek beaches from a home base that puts you squarely in the lap of luxury.

Details: An itinerary that includes three of the seven new ports is the 11-night " Yachting the Adriatic & Greek Isles " itinerary from Venice, Italy, to Athens, Greece, departing on Aug. 8, 2026, on SeaDream I. Prices start from $10,399 per person ($946 per person, per night) for a room with a porthole view.

Holland America's 'Alaska Arctic Circle Solstice' Legendary Voyage

Alaska is an absolute must for anyone who enjoys the vastness of untouched wilderness, the wildlife it houses and adventurous pursuits it provides. (Think whale-watching, hiking on glaciers and salmon fishing.) However, Holland America 's Westerdam is hosting a 28-day sailing that's anything but your standard cruise to the Last Frontier .

Passengers will visit the usual Alaska ports, such as Ketchikan, Sitka and Juneau, with scenic sailing through the Inside Passage, past Hubbard Glacier and to Glacier Bay. But they can also expect less-common stops at places like Nome, Kodiak, Anchorage (with an overnight) and Homer. Plus, about halfway through, this cruise crosses the Arctic Circle — a rite of passage for many travelers.

Details: Holland America's 28-day " Alaska Arctic Circle Solstice " cruise — one of the line's Legendary Voyages, known for longer durations and a unique mix of port calls — sails June 9-July 7, round-trip from Seattle. Inside cabins start from $5,299 per person (about $189 per person, per night).

Silversea's summertime French Polynesia cruises

Another consideration for future travel is Silversea Cruises , which is featuring its first full-summer season in French Polynesia in 2026. Silver Whisper will offer two immersive itineraries, including overnights, across 17 voyages between April and September.

Passengers can choose seven-night sailings that visit idyllic favorites like Tahiti, Moorea and Huahine and which also include overnights in Bora Bora. Or, they can cruise for twice as long by selecting a 14-night voyage that calls on the same ports as the seven-night option but with Fakarava, Nuku Hiva, Fatu Hiva, Atuona and Tahuata added.

Details: Silversea's seven-night voyages begin April 6, 2026, and start from $5,650 per person ($808 per person, per night) for an ocean-view cabin.

The line's 14-night sailings start on April 20, 2026. Fares start from $10,450 per person ($747 per person, per night) for ocean-view accommodations.

New Bermuda voyages on Carnival Venezia

Beginning in May of 2025, Carnival Cruise Line 's Carnival Venezia will sail a series of eight four- and five-night cruises to Bermuda from New York. These itineraries are notable because the line is aiming to increase its presence there but also because the style of the ship is new to even most of the brand's most dedicated passengers.

In 2022, Carnival announced its Costa by Carnival concept after revealing it would be transferring ships from its Costa sister brand to the Carnival fleet. Now, when travelers visit the Gibb's Hill Lighthouse or check out the island's renowned pink-sand beaches during a sailing on Carnival Venezia, they can enjoy both the Italian style of the ship and Carnival's fun atmosphere and high service standards.

Details: Voyages kick off on May 22, 2025. Prices start from $429 per person ($108 per person, per night) for an inside cabin on a four-night cruise departing Sept. 18, 2025.

Disney Cruise Line's Lighthouse Point itineraries

Disney Cruise Line 's new Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point , a private destination on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, is set to open in June with a three-night preview sailing on June 6 aboard Disney Magic. Following the initial voyage, the line will run regular three- to seven-night voyages to Lighthouse Point on Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream.

The island will feature a dedicated family beach and water play area, an arts and culture pavilion focused on Bahamian culture, 20 family cabanas, an adults-only beach and a selection of shore excursion options.

Details: Prices for itineraries that include Lighthouse Point start from $624 per person ($208 per person, per night) for a three-night cruise on Disney Magic. The cruise departs Nov. 5 and sails from Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
