In presenting the specifics of World Cruise 2020, Tom Wolber, president and CEO of Crystal Cruises, said the trip will commemorate its 25th edition. For this reason, “this annual trip of Crystal Serenity, encompasses many of the experiences that travelers have treasured during this cruise over the years.”
He added that those travelers who book the World Cruise will enjoy special benefits, including: a welcome dinner on board the Crystal Serenity before departure, an additional private car with a driver between the port and the airport, access to two exclusive events on land, a themed party aboard the world cruise and special gifts.
