Crystal to debut excursions for late-risers

Crystal Cruises has developed an excursion product aimed especially at guests who like to sleep in.

While shore excursions typically launch 30 minutes to an hour after docking or tendering operations begin, these excursions will start at 11 a.m. or noon, depending on the itinerary. They are designed to dovetail with a late-riser’s breakfast served from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on both Crystal ships.

“The ‘Late-Risers Adventures’ allow guests who prefer more sleep in the morning, are perhaps still adjusting to a time change, or simply like to enjoy a long, leisurely breakfast, to keep their preferred schedule ,” said Crystal President Edie Rodriguez.

The new, later excursions will be offered beginning with Crystal Serenity’s Sept. 19 Boston-Quebec sailing, and on Crystal Symphony’s Sept. 27 Hamburg-Lisbon sailing.
