ACBL-Sanctioned Sectional #2001336
In 2010 Robert Todd founded Adventures in Bridge, a group of young talented bridge players with whom he teaches and promotes the game. He teaches in person and online, plays with students from club games to world championships, hosts cruises and destination seminars, and writes for various publications. Robert has twice finished in the top 20 of the Barry Crane list, winning over 1500 masterpoints each of those years, and won the inaugural 0-10,000 Knockout Teams (“Mini-Vanderbilt”) at the Dallas NABC.

Dec. 21, 2019 - Depart San Diego.
Dec. 22-26, 2019 - cruising the Pacific Ocean.
Dec. 27, 2019 - Oahu/Honolulu (8:00 AM to 11:59 PM). Welcome to Oahu, where Asian and American influences combine and the aloha spirit pervades every aspect of the culture. Honolulu and Oahu are the center of island life and boast sandy beaches, endearing smiles and exotic tropical flowers. Elegant resorts and towering high-rises line the gentle curve of Waikiki Beach. In the distance, majestic Diamond Head Crater lies on the horizon beyond your Crystal ship. Relive the historic events of Pearl Harbor at the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, explore tropical rainforests or witness the creation of island culinary magic.
Dec. 28, 2019 - Kauai/Nawiliwili (7:00 AM to 6:00 PM). Kauai is known as the “Garden Island.” Fewer people live here than on the larger neighboring islands, but visitors frequent this paradise attracted to its much-acclaimed beaches, rugged emerald-colored cliffs, cascading waterfalls and magnificent sandy shores. One of the most enticing spots on earth, secluded coves are found all along the island’s irregular coastline and luxuriant rainforests flourishes on the “wet” side of the island.
Dec. 29, 2019 - Maui/Lahaina (7:00 AM to 11:59 PM). In addition to her marvelous beaches, this second-largest island of the Hawaiian archipelago boasts one of the great natural wonders of the world — Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano on the planet. Cradled on its western shore at the foot of Puu Kukui is picturesque Lahaina, now designated a national historic landmark. In days gone by, it was one of the principal whaling centers of the Pacific.
Dec. 30, 2019 - Hawaii/Kailua-Kona (7:00 AM to 6:00 PM). Kona encompasses the western coast of the Big Island and lies at the foot of towering Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Here one finds bright, clear days and magnificent sunsets. You won't want to miss the eerie Volcanoes National Park. In contrast, the string of dazzling resorts that have sprung up along the coast present quite a different face. Lush landscapes and gardens have been created over what were once only lava flows. At the center of this transformation is the bustling town of Kailua.
Dec. 31, 2019 - Jan 3, 2020 - cruising the Pacific Ocean.
Jan. 4, 2020 - Ensenada, Mexico (5:00 PM to 8:00 PM). Ensenada and its environs are famous for many things: the sunny and mild weather, which helps yield fine wines considered to be the best in Mexico, several celebrated surfing spots including San Miguel Beach, and off-road racing with the annual Baja 1000 and Baja 500. Migrating gray whales draw their fair share of travelers as well.
Jan. 5, 2019 - Disembark San Diego.

The 6-Star Newly Designed Symphony
In October 2017, the 50,000-ton Crystal Symphony emerged from her longest-ever makeover, a multi-million-dollar Evolution of Crystal Luxury featuring spacious new suites and penthouses, new and expanded dining options with open seating, and more state-of-the-art technologies including free, unlimited Wi-Fi. The transformation reduced the guest capacity to just 848, thereby increasing service and space ratios to be among the industry’s loftiest.
Port Security and handling charges: $675 pp. Prices are in U.S. dollars, based on double occupancy. Prices are subject to change without notice. Ask Alice Travel about single occupancy rates.
