Glide Across the Globe with Crystal Cruises

Illuminating European Voyages:

From your first sip of chilled bubbly to evenings gathered around a grand piano, there’s a sense of luxury that is synonymous with the Crystal® experience. In just over two years of sailing, Crystal River Cruises has quietly emerged as a leader in the classic European river cruise experience. We’ll show you some of the finest moments you’ll enjoy when we reserve your vacation.

Inspired by the World:

As you peruse the ports of call on a Crystal Cruises® world voyage, you’ll find yourself dreaming of gliding across the globe and touching distant shores. Yet if a world cruise doesn’t fit into your lifestyle, we’ll help you select a shorter segment — whether you’re intrigued by the South Pacific or the shores of South Africa — that takes you deep into a treasured region.

Imagine sailing the Pacific Ocean…

To land on the palm-fringed islands of Hawaii.  You’ll venture onward to even more remote South Pacific isles before crossing the International Date Line.  From tropical beaches to the fresh breezy shores of New Zealand, your 22 day voyage will reveal the treasures of the Pacific.

Imagine being surrounded by the Indian Ocean…

Before landing on the coast of Mauritius and then exploring the golden beaches of South Africa.  Natural wonders are scattered throughout your 21-day cruise, form the vanilla plantations of Reunion to the signature flatted top of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.

Imagine spending three days in glamorous Monte Carlo…

As the culmination of a 26-day cruise that traverses the coastal gems of Africa’s west coast.  Marvel over the seabirds that gather on the shores of Namibia and trek into the lush interior of the Cape Verde Islands before crossing into Spain’s exciting cities of Malaga and Barcelona.

Magical Celebrations at Walt Disney World

With special limited-time events, it’s a magical time to visit Walt Disney World resort.  Check out a festival of flavors at this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, join Donald Duck and his pals for Donald’s Dino-Bash! and get ready for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  And it’s never too early to plan to celebrate the holidays with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Epcot International Festivals of the Holidays.

Why it’s Time to Embrace Bleisure Travel

More and more corporate travelers are shedding their business attire to hit beaches, shopping centers and theater districts when the work that brought them to their destination is done. It’s all a part of a growing trend called bleisure travel, a combination business and leisure trip that includes an extended leisure stay, often with family or friends. In fact, according to a 2017 Global Business Travel Association study, nearly four in 10 North American business travelers added a leisure leg to their work trip.

Travel Tips: Vacation Travel Myths vs. Truths

Travel Myths vs Facts

According to a recent survey by Allianz Travel Insurance, over half of America’s population has gone at least a year without a vacation. Here at Fox World Travel, we believe everyone deserves a vacation. There are plenty of travel myths out there, leading people to question taking that much-needed vacation. We’re here to bust those myths.

Travel Myth #1: You can’t afford it — Truth: There is a destination for every budget

With so many destinations, there is a getaway for you. With so many great cities to visit in your own state and around the country, there is always an affordable destination that aligns with your interests. There are even affordable flights to destinations in Europe, such as Iceland! One good tip is to cut back on hotels if you plan to sightsee all day. Why spend a heaping amount of cash on a fancy hotel room, when it just serves as a place to sleep at the end of the day?

Travel Myth #2: Traveling to certain places is intimidating — Truth: Research & proper tools can keep you safe 

Safety should always be a priority when traveling. Practice safety by using common sense and proper travel tools that tell you about your location. With smartphones outsmarting people, we can now receive updates on locations before we arrive. Thanks to globalization, we can also read tips from locals before we travel somewhere. A small amount of research really goes a long way in making a destination more enjoyable and safe.

Travel Myth #3: You don’t have time — Truth: Not every vacation needs to take a long time

There will always be something going on in life, but making time for yourself is vital. You deserve that trip to Italy you’ve always wanted to take. There will be no perfect time to leave for two weeks, but you will enjoy it, we promise. Vacations also don’t need to take up weeks of your time; sometimes a long weekend to a new location is enough to refresh yourself and experience a new and exciting way of life.

Travel Myth #4: You don’t have anywhere you want to go — Truth: There is a destination for everyone

You may not know it, but there is a place out there that you will love. Not every trip has to be to a big city either. Sometimes living like a local in a village or camping in the middle of nowhere can be the perfect vacation. There truly is a destination for everyone in the world.

Travel Myth #5: You can’t travel alone — Truth: Traveling alone can be extremely rewarding

Absolutely not true. There are so many different ways to travel with others that sometimes it can be really rewarding going solo on a trip. Whether it’s a cruise full of people that want to have a good time, or an escorted group trip to Ireland that is experiencing the same things you are for the first time, going by yourself can be an eye-opening and memorable decision.

There you have it. There are always reasons not to go on vacation but if you do go, you’re sure to find something you love. If you want to find that perfect vacation for your budget, schedule or travel needs, our travel consultants at Fox look forward to sitting down with you and planning out your next getaway.
