LOS ANGELES, September 26, 2011 â€“ Ultra-luxe Crystal Cruises is offering two new four-day overland adventures that intimately explore the unique natural beauty and history of South Australiaâ€™s picturesque outback and 170 year-old wine country. During Crystal Serenityâ€™s February 7 Sydney to Singapore voyage, guests can venture to Kangaroo Island, considered the Galapagos of Australia, or delve into the Flinders Ranges National Park & Barossa Valley wine country.
Departing from Adelaide and concluding in Perth, both overland trips allow plenty of time to sightsee in both cities, as well as enjoy the regionâ€™s indigenous wildlife. Highlights include:
Kangaroo Island: An eco-friendly, luxury cliffside lodge serving organic cuisine, plus scouting the bush for wallabies, koalas, fur seals, and sea lions.
The Flinders Ranges & Barossa Valley: Winery tours/tasting in Clare and Barossa Valleys, a traditional Aussie barbeque, and emus, eagles, and kangaroos with Australiaâ€™s largest mountain range as backdrop.
Prices for each Crystal Adventure start at $3,861 and $4,029 respectively, per person, double occupancy.
The complete itinerary sails from Sydney to Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth/Fremantle, Bali, Semarang, and Singapore, giving a grand tour of major Australian cities and less-visited Crystal ports, with other new excursions offered en route.
Guests who book a verandah stateroom by October 31 receive $600 per couple additional savings. 2-for-1 fares for the 19-day cruise start at $11,910/person (double occupancy), including free air from 24 North American cities (or air credit), airport transfers, and $1,000/person â€œAs You Wishâ€ shipboard credit.
Crystalâ€™s passion for creating exclusive, eye-opening luxury shore-side experiences are cornerstones of its Crystal Adventures program, earning the line top ratings for two decades.
