NOV. 10: Embark Lisbon. Cosmopolitan Lisbon was the center of the world’s last great colonial empire. Today the city nostalgically reveres its imperial past while adapting to Portugal’s role as a member of the European Economic Community. Although located on the Atlantic coast, Lisbon has the soul of a Mediterranean city with Moorish castles, pastel and white buildings, orange-tiled roofs and luminous blue skies.
NOV. 11-17: Cruising the Atlantic Ocean.
NOV. 18: St. Thomas. Glimmering bays, shining seas, powdery sand beaches, towering green hills and unsurpassed shopping—this is St. Thomas. The Danes originally declared St. Thomas a free port, making it the shopping paradise it remains today. You will delight in exquisite imported goods ranging from Danish silver to French porcelain and Swiss watches. This mountainous island is one of the loveliest stretches of land in the Caribbean.
NOV. 19-20: Cruising the Atlantic Ocean.
NOV. 21: Disembark Ft. Lauderdale.
Note: Itineraries are subject to change without notice.
The Luxury Evolution of Crystal Serenity
Get onboard the maiden voyage! Emerging in November 2018 from her longest-ever makeover, Crystal Serenity will feature more innovative dining options with expanded specialty venues, spacious new suites and penthouses, and more state-of-the-art technologies including free unlimited Wi-Fi. Replacing existing staterooms, these newly added accommodations will reduce guest capacity to further increase the ships’ already generous service and space ratios to be among the loftiest in luxury travel. The number of guests on the Serenity will drop from 1070 to 980.
Culinary inspiration comes in the form of the Waterside (open seating dining), Churrascaria (an open seating Brazilian steakhouse), Chinese-inspired al fresco dining at Silk, and the fresh and friendly new Marketplace. Still onboard: Umi Uma (the new name of Chef Nobu’s Japanese-Peruvian venue), and the well-loved Italian specialty restaurant Prego. Free unlimited wi-fi, available on all devices, now comes with SpeedNet accelerators, doubling satellite speed. Rooms will be equipped with ultra-thin 42" interactive TVs offering current movie and TV selections.
Per person rates shown. Prices subject to availability and change without notice. Ask Alice Travel about single occupancy rates. Port security and handling charges: $506 pp.
