Crystal Cruises unveiled its 2022 Grand Voyage, the 132-night “Caribbean Idylls & Mediterranean Masterpieces,” which will sail from Miami to Los Angeles on Crystal Serenity.

The cruise, from Jan. 17 to May 29, 2022, will visit 82 ports in 32 countries and includes 11 overnights in iconic cities including Istanbul, Monte Carlo, Naples and Cannes, as well as the islands of St. Barts, Madeira, the Canary Islands and more.


This new Grand Voyage replaces the 2022 World Cruise, which was canceled because many countries on the original itinerary remain uncertain in their ability to welcome guests back at this time.
