Crystal is looking at 2025 with an array of cruise itineraries that are sure to check off more than one bucket list item for your clients. Recently acquired by A&K Travel Group, the line’s Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony are set to take them on adventures on and off the ships.
“We’re excited to offer both past and future Crystal guests an incredible assortment of itineraries in 2025,” said Cristina Levis, CEO of A&K Travel Group, in a press statement. “Travelers onboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony will have the opportunity to explore a treasure trove of lesser-visited corners of the world and check off some truly once-in-a-lifetime bucket list destinations with bespoke, industry-leading experiences designed by Abercrombie & Kent.”
The luxury vessels will be headed to about 144 new destinations like The Faroe Islands, Haifa and Shanghai—that means a total of 112 countries and 281 ports over the course of 720 days. The itineraries will be available to book on Sept. 27.

Crystal Serenity’s 2025 World Cruise begins in Ft. Lauderdale on Jan. 7 and ends in Barcelona in May, after which the vessel will sail from Marseille through the Mediterranean and Baltic seas, with stops in ports that include Malaga, Ronne, Riga and others. The ship will also take its guests on adventures in Longyearbyen in Svalbard, Norway, for a look at the Northern Lights. There will be stops in The Faroe Islands and Iceland. The ship will then head on a leaf-peeping getaway with guests onboard from September to November along the North American coast, with stops in Quebec City, Newport, Boston, NYC and others. If your clients are looking to keep warm during the holidays, Crystal Serenity will oblige with itineraries to the Caribbean and South America, including Montego Bay, Cayman Islands, The Panama Canal and more.
Crystal Symphony’s 2025 highlights include a stint in Southeast Asia for the newly refurbished ship, where it will visit the best beaches in Cambodia, Sabang, Pulau Weh Island and have multi-day port calls in Ho Chi Minh City, Halong Bay, Shanghai and others. Brunei and Palawan (Philippines) are also on the itinerary. Of note is the visit to Monaco and Villefranche-sur-Mer just in time for the Grand Prix. The Mediterranean is on the menu, with calls in Haifa, Dubrovnik, Cyprus, Santorini and more. The second half of 2025 will see the luxury ship visiting the Middle East, including Egypt and Dubai, as well as more remote destinations like Salalah, known for its marine life.
