Crystal Cruises Guests Will Enjoy Prime Locations To Ring In 2017

Crystal Cruises is offering its guests a world of options for celebrating the festive season this year, most notably New Year’s Eve. Each of the company’s three ultra-luxury vessels will sail distinctly special voyages, each presenting unique and exclusive opportunities to ring in 2017 in the utmost luxury.

Crystal Symphony and Crystal Esprit will both place guests in the heart of two of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the world – in Sydney and Dubai. Meanwhile, Crystal Serenity will host lavish cocktail parties and special feasts on board as the vessel enjoys the picturesque and tranquil settings of the Caribbean.

If you’re looking for glitz, glamour and the best seats in the house on New Year’s Eve, then look no further than Crystal Symphony and Crystal Esprit:

Crystal Symphony (December 21, 15 nights from Auckland to Melbourne)

Amidst fifteen glorious days exploring the vast wine country, rolling farmland, sculpted mountain ranges and pristine beaches of New Zealand and the Outback, guests will find themselves in the centre of the famed Sydney Harbour for its annual New Year’s Eve fireworks extravaganza. More than just a great view, Crystal guests will take in the lavish festivities aboard one of two specially chartered catamarans, and will participate in the Harbour of Light Parade. An impressive flotilla of vessels decorated with an array of rope lights and adornments will parade across the Harbour from Goat Island to Cockatoo Island and back. An elegant feast will be served aboard the chartered vessels, while champagne flows and music from a live band and a DJ plays. The celebration culminates with one of the most impressive pyrotechnics displays in the world, with Crystal’s guests enjoying the illumination from the open decks of the catamarans. The epic show, combined with the rugged wilderness and cosmopolitan culture found in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Tauranga and Wellington, make this perfect festive voyage.

Crystal Esprit (December 23, 11 nights round-trip Dubai)

Crystal’s luxurious yacht affords front-row access to many of the world’s most exclusive locations and events, including the famous New Year’s Eve fireworks show in Dubai. While the rest of the world watches the 19-minute spectacular on television, Crystal Esprit’s 62 guests will enjoy a VIP vantage point to take in the entire show. The record-setting extravaganza stretches down the expansive beach to the Burj al Arab, where Crystal Esprit will be anchored. The voyage travels to and from Dubai, through some of the Cosmopolitan Emirates most iconic hubs. Visits to Doha, Muscat, Sir Bani Yas Island and Abu Dhabi (overnight) allow travellers to immerse themselves in the contrasts that are artfully exhibited by the sleek, brand new modern structures that pay homage to the region’s ancient masterpieces.
