15 Night cruise sailing roundtrip from Hong Kong onboard Crystal Symphony.

Visit Japan’s “friendliest city” of Kagoshima, presided over by active volcano Sakurajima; feel Tokyo’s pre-Olympic energy; and spend two nights immersed in Shanghai’s sparkling skyline, stellar shopping and Imperial history.

Highlights of this cruise:

Hong Kong, China
Although Hong Kong has returned to its original Chinese roots, it still remains a cosmopolitan city with influences, languages and accents from around the world. Here East meets West and the result is electric. Soaring skyscrapers rise from the hills and harbor, blending geography and nature with commercial concrete, steel and pulsating neon in a way that brings traditional Chinese culture and Western-style commerce into perfect harmony. The bustling city streets are lined with teeming markets and sophisticated boutiques tucked tightly into any available crevice. Some of the world’s best shopping is found in Central, located on Hong Kong Island and only a short ferry ride away. Discover the beauty and magic of Hong Kong today!

Taipei/Keelung, Taiwan
Across the Formosa Straits from Mainland China lies the island of Taiwan, whose name means “Terraced Bay.” Taipei lies just 20 miles from our pier in Keelung. It is Taiwan’s largest city and stands on the island’s northern tip, where the Tamsui and Keelung Rivers meet. Since becoming the capital of the Taiwanese Republic of China, its population has mushroomed to approximately three million people. That momentum continues today, making this cultural and economic center one of Asia’s fastest growing cities. Taiwan is a land of contrasts, from its bustling urban areas to its serene countryside. Explore numerous sites of interest including 19th-century city gates and walls, the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, the Sun Yat-sen Memorial and the famous Grand Hotel.

Kagoshima, Japan
Kagoshima lies cradled within the protective arms of a large inlet on the island of Kyūshū’s extreme southern tip. It is Japan’s southernmost city and combines slow-paced charm with thriving commercial activity. World-renowned Mount Sukurajima stands less than three miles away. This rare example of a busy metropolitan area coexisting with a volcano has led to comparisons between Kagoshima and the Italian city of Naples. Stroll picture-perfect Japanese gardens, explore an abundance of historical sites or shop for traditional pottery.

Tokyo, Japan
Fusing the vitality of a modern metropolis with the stately elegance of yesteryear, Tokyo is truly unique. From the timeless beauty of the Meiji Shrine to the glittering Ginza district and impressive Tokyo Tower, this international giant is a complex blend of East and West. Houses of wood and paper stand beside towering steel skyscrapers, while kimono-clad women stroll beside teenagers who have created a fashion all their own.

The timeless Imperial Palace bears testament to Japan’s enduring traditions. Despite encroaching urban development, it continues to exist in a verdant parkland of isolation.

Images of the vibrant metropolis of Tokyo, which is home to more than 11 million people, will create memories of a lifetime.

Note: Arrival and departure times for this port will depend on tidal restrictions.

Shanghai, China
Shanghai, located just inside the mouth of the great Yangtze River, marks the point where Asia’s longest and most important river completes its 3,400-mile journey to the Pacific. The city’s unique location is the source of its existence and has determined what it is today. Until 1842, Shanghai was merely a tiny fishing village. Following the first Opium War, Shanghai became a treaty port, which opened the city to foreign influence and resulted in the development of numerous British, French and American colonial settlements within the city and along the Yangtze River. Today, Shanghai is the center of China’s economic resurgence and its skyline attests to this development in the form of towering skyscrapers, brightly lit commercial high-rises and the unsettling Oriental Pearl Tower. A testimony to Shanghai’s colonial era, stately European buildings in art deco style line the Bund, the city’s spacious waterfront promenade. An endless flotilla of sampans edge the Huangpu River, dividing old and new Shanghai. Beyond the rush of the city, serene ponds and gardens offer a gentle respite. Must-see sights include the Jade Buddha Temple and tranquil Yu Garden, impressive monuments to China’s history and style. Inland lies Suzhou, with its majestic Grand Canal and classical gardens, as well as equally significant Hangzhou, terminus of the Grand Canal and the center of China’s legendary tea industry.

Note: Arrival and departure times for this port will depend on tidal restrictions.

It begins the moment you embark. An immersion into luxurious wonder. An extraordinary sense of well-being. The Crystal Symphony is one of the most spacious and luxurious cruise ships at sea. Onboard amenities feature grand lounges, a full-service fitness facility, exciting casino, a lavish spa, expansive decks, a swimming pool with an extra-large Jacuzzi, award-winning cuisine and entertainment. To top it off, exquisitely-appointed staterooms, more than half of which offer private verandahs. Considered to be the finest shipboard staff afloat, it is their goal to anticipate your every need and to make this a vacation to remember.

Luxury, as they say, is in the details. It is so often the little details that make all the difference. And on a Crystal cruise, the differences are many.

From the moment you step on board, you will experience Crystal Cruises’ dedication to making your cruise with us a perfect one. Our Six-Star Commitment means each instant must be memorable, every detail sublime. From the grand designs of our ships to the right vintage wine, a turned-down bed, or even a simple smile, singular attention is paid to every detail of your cruise. For all of us at Crystal Cruises, Six-Star quality means more than awards and accolades; it means the constant pursuit of a single goal: to create the best, then make it better. We are not just aiming to provide a fabulous vacation, we are aiming to create an experience that will enrich your life and provide memories to cherish forever. Think of the farthest corners of the world connected by a smooth and shining sea. Imagine that a floating luxury resort, filled with everything you ever could desire, is waiting to carry you on the journey of your dreams. At Crystal Cruises, they take pride in navigating that magical highway of the sea, transporting you to the best the world has to offer.

Your days and nights on a Crystal cruise are effortless and carefree. You will revel in a wealth of time, a luxurious sense of leisure and ease; your hours are your own, to spend as you see fit. Released from the pressure of schedules and routines, you are free to play, to rest, to mingle and relax – to allow for the luxury of serendipity. Like the open sea, each day is limitless. You can chart a course, then change it at your whim. Let possibility fill the sails of your imagination and see what magic might appear.

Crystal Cruises gives you space to stretch out and explore. There are broad, sunny decks to stroll and inviting corners to settle into. There are cozy nooks where you can be alone. You can join a spellbound audience at an exciting Broadway-style show or get together with a few new friends over a frothy cappuccino. Your stateroom is a comforting place to call your own, where you can snuggle in and dream.

With skilled and practiced sleight-of-hand, chefs prepare the finest cuisine from around the world. Guests may begin a cruise alone, but within days they find themselves greeting new-found friends. There is a spirit of cheerfulness and good humor to be found wherever you are on the ship. Guests say that’s the real magic of a Crystal cruise. There’s no mystery to it; it’s simply a commitment to heartfelt service that creates an atmosphere of enchantment, every day.
