On Shore with Crystal

During your stay in each port, you'll have the option of exploring on your own or booking one of the cruise line's specialized Crystal Adventures. Crystal Adventures vary by itinerary and port of call; they also incur additional fees and should be booked in advance. Available shore excursions include a Van Gogh painting workshop in Amsterdam, archaeological expeditions in Oman and more.

Excursions vary from leisurely activities to heart-pumping adventures. You can reserve your shore excursions up to six months before departure through the Priority Check-In & Planning Center.
