New Locales for Crystal

As part of its 2013 Mediterranean cruise season, ultra-luxe Crystal Cruises is making first-time-ever visits to Çanakkale, Turkey; La Spezia, Italy; and Castellón de la Plana, Spain. These maiden calls offer new exploration of historic and off-the-beaten path areas from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to the west, including the Dardanelles/Adriatic, Italian Riviera, and Costa del Azahar. The 7- to 13-day itineraries surrounding the new destinations also offer cultural capital over nights and extra port intensiveness. Çanakkale is a popular vacation getaway for local Turks, the harbor city also offers easy access to the UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site of Troy and Gallipoli’s historic battlefield and monuments, while La Spezia’s balcony-lined streets and a palm-lined promenade usher travelers into Italy’s Liguria region. Guests can walk the uber-picturesque Cinque Terre or explore the fine museums or delicious local cheese stalls in the town’s outdoor market. Finally, Castellon de la Plana is a Valencian town that dates back to 1251 and offers a range of rural tourism, a Gothic and Renaissance-architecture “old quarter,” and fragrant orange trees blossoming in the Fall. All-inclusive “Book Now” fares for the series start from US$3,110 per person, with up to US$1500 per person in savings if booked by December 28. www.crystalcruises.com
