2017 President's Cruise: A Journey of Cultures & Faiths
Aboard Crystal Symphony
Rome to Dubai, November 4-22, 2017

Marking Crystal’s first voyage to the Holy Land since 2012, Crystal Chairman, CEO and President Edie Rodriguez and her husband Tom will join Crystal Symphony for Crystal Cruises’ annual President’s Cruise traveling from Rome to Dubai on November 4, 2017. This 18-day journey of cultures and faiths explores fascinating destinations of ancient intrigue with calls in Limassol, Haifa, Ashdod, and Salalah, and overnights in Aqaba, Muscat and Dubai.

In addition to joining Edie for special receptions and parties on board, the itinerary is packed with momentous occasions and opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. An overnight stay in Muscat is timed to coincide with the Sultan’s extravagant birthday celebrations. Perhaps you’ll find yourself on adventurous archaeological expeditions, rugged rock climbing and Indian Ocean scuba dives in Salalah, or indulging in experiences like Sky Tea at the opulent Burj Al Arab and Sunset at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
