Crystal "You Care, We Care" Programme Expanded For 2015

Crystal Cruises is expanding a number of its popular “You Care, We Care” shore excursions in 2015, and with three brand new options, 2015 will also mark the largest collection of opportunities Crystal has offered.

For the luxury line’s 25th Anniversary, 16 Crystal Adventures ashore – offered complimentarily – will allow participants to engage in the humanitarian and conservational activities of organisations throughout the world. If you like to give back when you travel, then the “You Care, We Care” programme is the ideal shoreside option for you to partake in – you can make a real difference in just a few hours.

Destinations where Crystal guests can provide shore-side aid include:

· Victoria, British Columbia –Work alongside community members and volunteers at the Mustard Seed Food Bank, sorting food donations and helping prepare meals for those who would otherwise go without. This is a new addition for 2015.

· Santa Barbara, California – Backyard Bounty – a non-profit organisation that supplies the food bank of Santa Barbara – will take participants into the orchards to gather and organise fresh produce for local low income residents.

· Dubrovnik, Croatia – At Domus Christi, you will meet with residents, provide companionship for a walk to the Old Port and along the waterfront, as well as helping with some of the home’s gardening chores.

· Barcelona, Spain – With expert guidance from researchers at the Rehabilitation Centre, you will learn about the centre’s dedicated efforts to help endangered marine life and their habitats.

· Guernsey/St Peter Port, Channel Islands – Get a glimpse into the daily operation of the Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as they assist with maintenance of the property.

· Puerto Limón, Costa Rica – You will spend time with the children and families of SOS Children’s Village, where abandoned and orphaned children are brought up in a family setting, supported by the village environment.

The “You Care, We Care” Crystal Adventures will be offered on more than two dozen of Crystal Cruises 2015 worldwide sailings aboard both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.
