LOS ANGELES, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers aboard Crystal Symphony's February 7 South America voyage have two brand new options ashore for further exploration of Brazil.
Adventurous types can enjoy a four-night jaunt to Pantanal – UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world's largest wetlands – for horse-back riding, canoeing, hiking and even piranha fishing is the perfect way to fully experience the destination. Travelers seeking pampered relaxation may opt for the one-night escape to the Pousada Vila D'este resort in the once quiet fishing village of Buzios, where lounging on breathtaking beaches along protected waters can be a full day's activity.
"Travel can be a very personal choice – one may prefer the adrenaline rush that comes with trekking through a rainforest, while others seek to truly unwind while on vacation. Regardless of one's personal style, a Crystal cruise truly provides experiences – on board and ashore – that will accommodate most any interest," says John Stoll, vice president, land and port operations.
The "Wetlands of Pantanal" departs from Buenos Aires to Rio and continues inland. Fares for the Crystal Overland Adventure are $3,298. Departing from Rio de Janeiro, the "Beautiful Buzios Relaxing Resort Escape" is $1,221.
The 16-day voyage begins with overnight stays in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro before calling at Devil's Island, Barbados, Turks & Caicos and disembarking in Miami.
Promotional, Two-for-One cruise fares start at $5,220 and include complimentary air transportation and $1,000 per person 'All Inclusive – As You Wish' shipboard credits. Fares quoted for the cruise and overland programs are based on per person, double occupancy accommodations.
