Other highlights include a 51-night sailing from Cape Town to Barcelona.
After making its grand return this year, Crystal is now looking ahead to even grander adventures. The luxury cruise line, now part of the Abercrombie & Kent portfolio, just announced five new Grand Journeys for 2025.
Crystal Symphony will sail a 70-night Asia itinerary round-trip from Mumbai between January and March 2025. There will be 32 ports of call across 15 countries, including overnights in Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, and Tokyo, among other destinations. For those interested in a shorter version of this trip, you can also book a 47-night segment of the journey round-trip from Singapore.
Crystal Serenity will offer two multi-continent Grand Journeys: a 44-night sailing from Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai from March to April 2025 and an overlapping 51-night sailing from Cape Town to Barcelona, running from March to May 2025. The former includes calls to the remote St. Helena, the Atlantic island where Napoleon spent his exile, and to Walvis Bay, Namibia. Then the ship will continue up to the Seychelles and the Maldives for overnights during the itineraries' overlap, before continuing with the second itinerary to Petra, Jordan, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, and finally the Mediterranean.
Then between July and September, Crystal Serenity will sail a 40-night itinerary in Northern Europe, beginning in Stockholm and ending in Liverpool.
“We’re thrilled to announce an impressive lineup of Grand Journeys for 2025,” Cristina Levis, CEO of A&K Travel Group, said in a statement obtained by Travel + Leisure. “These extended itineraries offer exclusive opportunities for immersion in some of the world’s most unique and sought-after destinations. We can’t wait for our guests to experience these unparalleled voyages along with the unique land experiences we are creating with our sister brand Abercrombie & Kent.”

Rates start at $31,000 per guest for the 40-night Northern Europe itinerary and at $42,400 per guest for the 70-night Mumbai round-trip itinerary. You can book the trips now at crystalcruises.com.
