The four- and six-day voyages are shortened segments of existing 10-day itineraries.

“The Crystal River Getaways are packed with as much luxury, world-class cuisine, personalized service and cultural discovery as any Crystal voyage, but within a conveniently shortened itinerary that also offers great savings,” says Walter Littlejohn, vice president and managing director of Crystal River Cruises. “These sailings are wonderful options for busy travelers, as well as those who have not yet sailed with us and want to experience a taste of the celebrated Crystal Experience.”
