Fine Dining, Posh Hotels, Cultural Highlights Set for Expanded Luxury Vacations
LOS ANGELES, July 9, 2015 – This fall, Crystal Cruises is offering travelers the chance to extend their ultra-luxury cruise experience ashore with two lavish Extended Land Programs in Eastern Canada. Offered with two Crystal Symphony New England/Canada sailings from New York to Montréal, the post-cruise shore-side adventures take guests further into two of Canada’s most culturally rich cities – Toronto and Montréal – including iconic sites like Niagara Falls, the Notre-Dame Basilica and exclusive mountaintop villages.
“Toronto and Montréal each offer such distinctly elegant experiences, from the palpable history to the world-class cuisine,” says Crystal President and CEO Edie Rodriguez. “These Extended Land Programs have been carefully curated by our expert team to cater to guests who want to continue their journey ashore while still enjoying all the luxury and attention to detail that draws them to Crystal.”
With each, guests will enjoy the luxurious attention to detail for which Crystal is known, from getting there to being there, including such highlights as:
