Crystal Cruises to feature shortest ever Middle East cruise during 2017

The luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises has announced that it is shortening some of its cruises for the 2017-18 cruise season, in response to passenger demand for luxury, but in smaller bites.

The cruise line, known for its world cruises and grand voyages of several weeks in length, has therefore offered up a number of shorter voyages of one week or less.

However, the shortest cruise in this new offering is its 4-day Dubai to Abu Dhabi Middle East cruise, which is also the shortest cruise of any other cruise line operating in the Middle East this year.

The four day cruise departs Dubai on November 22, 2017 and arrives in Abu Dhabi on November 26th.

The all-inclusive, cruise only fares for this ‘Crystal Cruises Getaways’ voyage begin at US $940 per person sharing.

The cruise is a destination-immersive experience with the ship, Crystal Symphony, staying overnight in port in Dubai on the first night before cruising to Doha in Qatar, and then onto Abu Dhabi the following day where it will also spend the last night of the cruise in port.

“Luxury travellers continue to seek unparalleled service, amenities and experiences when they explore the world, even with limited time,” says Crystal CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez.

“Crystal Getaways allow travellers to enjoy a standard of luxury, excellence and unforgettable adventures, without stressing their calendars – while also realizing tremendous savings on the all-inclusive Crystal Experience,” he added.
