To quote the name of a song written by Paul McCartney and performed by The Beatles, our return to Crystal Serenity feels like a "Long and Winding Road".
It's been 20 months since we last sailed Crystal Serenity.
At the time we debarked, we did not know Crystal Cruises would cease operations in February 2022 due to the bankruptcy of its parent company.
Thankfully, the Crystal brand and its two ocean vessels were purchased in June, 2022 by A&K owned by Manfredi Lefebvre d"Ovido and Geoffrey Kent.
The new cruise line is called Crystal.
We are excited to be on the July 31 inaugural sailing of Crystal Serenity from Marseille to Lisbon and the second sailing from Lisbon to Southampton.
As much as we have cruised this area of the world, we will visit seven ports-of-call for the first time bringing to 311 the number of ports we have visited around the world.
We will Blog before, during, and following this adventure. We expect to make new memories which will last a lifetime.
We love to read your comments so please feel free to provide comments whenever you like.
