Explore the White Sea Aboard Crystal Symphony in 2015
Departing in July 2015, Crystal Symphony shall sail an 18-night itinerary taking in some of the most remote and beautiful regions in and around the White Sea.
The White Sea is an area not regularly frequented by cruise ships, so the chance to explore this region and via the luxurious comfort of Crystal Symphony really is a wonderful opportunity. To give you a little more information, The White Sea is actually a southern inlet of the Barents Sea located on the north-west coast of Russia.

Aside from this featured Crystal voyage taking in the White Sea, it also offers guests a wonderful chance to discover the natural beauty of Norway and the North Cape. Take in some of Norway’s more popular ports such as Bergen and Geiranger but also explore some hidden gems that are rarely visited by cruise ships including Narvik and Bodo – This really is a voyage that offers a little bit of everything. Popular hot-spots are combined with off the beaten track treasures and Crystal Cruises shall sail you there in ultimate 5-star luxury.
