LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's most awarded luxury cruise line is expanding its lineup of popular "Crystal Getaways" to now include shortened segments of coveted World Cruise voyages for 2016 and 2017. Five new options have been announced, comprising select South American departures that are part of Crystal Serenity's "Southern Celebración" World Cruise (which sails in full, 94 days round-trip from Miami on January 10). The collection of cruises, which range from six to 13 days, allows travelers to experience snippets of Crystal's celebrated luxury sailings with less commitment of time while enjoying additional savings.
"Luxury travelers are often limited on precious vacation time but still seek – and expect – the most exceptional experiences available," says Crystal president and CEO Edie Rodriguez. "'Crystal Getaways' are an ideal escape from even the busiest schedules without any sacrifice of luxury or memorable adventures."
Exploring destinations throughout Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Vietnam and Japan in 2016; and Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Barbados in 2017, the roster of available itineraries includes:
- February 29, 2016 – Bali to Port Kelang, 6 days
- March 6, 2016 – Port Kelang to Singapore, 6 days
- March 12, 2016 – Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City, 8 days
- March 20, 2016 – Ho Chi Minh City to Shanghai, 11 days
- March 31, 2016 – Shanghai to Incheon, 7 days
- April 7, 2016 – Incheon to Tokyo, 7 days
- January 22, 2017 – Colón to Callao 8 days

As segments of Crystal's existing, longer itineraries, the voyages can be booked independently or as a means to extend one's vacation in addition to previously scheduled sailings. Through the "Book Now" deadline of February 29, 2016, guests can enjoy additional savings for 2016 and 2017 Crystal Getaways, with fares starting at $2,275 per person.
Crystal Cruises is the world's most awarded luxury cruise line, having earned more "World's Best" accolades than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history.
