Crystal's 2017 President's Cruise marks return to Holy Land

Crystal's 2017 President's Cruise marks return to Holy Land

Edie Rodriguez, chairman, president and CEO of Crystal Cruises, will host the annual President's Cruise in 2017 aboard Crystal Symphony, as the ship sails from Rome to Dubai on Nov. 4.

The voyage marks the return of Crystal’s ocean ships to the Holy Land – the last voyage being in 2012 – and Arabian Peninsula, featuring calls to Limassol, Cyprus; Haifa and Ashdod, Israel; transit of the Suez Canal; Aqaba, Jordan; and Salalah and Muscat, Oman. For the 18-day sailing, Rodriguez and her husband, Tom, will join guests for festive receptions and parties, as well as specially planned experiences ashore.

The itinerary is packed with momentous occasions and opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime experiences, from the city of Petra, where a special President’s shore excursion will take place, to an overnight stay in Muscat in time for the Sultan’s extravagant birthday celebrations.

All-inclusive cruise only fares for the Holy Land & Suez Canal voyage start at $4,750 per person.
