This fall, Crystal Cruises is offering travellers the chance to extend their cruise experience ashore with two lavish Extended Land Programs in Eastern Canada.
Offered with two Crystal Symphony New England/Canada sailings from New York to Montreal, the post-cruise, shore-side adventures take guests further into two of Canada’s most culturally rich cities – Toronto and Montreal – including iconic sites like Niagara Falls, the Notre-Dame Basilica and exclusive mountaintop villages.
“Toronto and Montreal each offer such distinctly elegant experiences, from the palpable history to the world-class cuisine,” says Crystal president Edie Rodriguez. “These Extended Land Programs have been carefully curated by our expert team to cater to guests who want to continue their journey ashore while still enjoying all the luxury and attention to detail that draws them to Crystal.”
