Crystal Cruises knows that not everyone is an early riser, especially on vacation, when you have a (perhaps unusual) chance to sleep in.  With that in mind, they are  debuting new Crystal Adventures this fall designed for late-risers

While many of the line’s excursions leave quite early in the morning  (as early as 8:00 a.m.) the new “Late-Risers Adventures” will start around 11:00 a.m.or noon, depending on the itinerary.

Here’s information on the program, straight from Crystal Cruises:

The new, later excursions will be offered beginning with Crystal Serenity’s September 19Boston-Québec sailing, and on Crystal Symphony’s September 27 Hamburg-Lisbon sailing.  Examples of adventures with later start times include:

  • A glimpse into the eclectic culture of Oporto, Portugal, including the elaborate Cathedral of Oporto – once a Gothic church, now an important Baroque structure, and the 19th-century Stock Exchange Palace, blending Arab and European influences, plus a visit to a port wine cellar for tasting among the oak casts and barrels.
  • Taking in Amsterdam’s most notable sites from some of the 100 canals within the city, including the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and countless gabled houses, merchants’ mansions and centuries-old carillon-crowned churches.
  • Such famed Boston highlights as the Navy Yard, home to “Old Ironsides,” the world’s oldest commissioned naval ship afloat; Boston Common, America’s oldest public park; the Freedom Trail and the pre-Revolutionary Old State House.

The “Late-Risers” tours will be available on select Crystal itineraries throughout the world, which range from 5-108 days and sail through the Mediterranean, Western Europe, British Isles, Scandinavia/Baltic & Russia, North Cape & Arctic Circle, Africa, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, South Pacific, South America, Antarctica, New England/Canada, Panama Canal, Caribbean, and an indulgent annual World Cruise.  Until August 29, all-inclusive, value-priced “Book Now” fares start at just $1,360/person.

Another perk of the program: the start times of the excursions are designed to complement the line’s Late Risers Breakfasts, served from 10:00-11:30 a.m. on both Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.
