Crystal AirCruises announces new itineraries for New Year’s Eve countdown and Chinese New Year

Crystal AirCruises has announced all-new, all-inclusive itineraries to usher in the New Year and Chinese New Year in incomparable Crystal style. From the aquatic to the exotic, voyages will encompass a jaunt ‘down-under’ to Australia and the tropical paradise of Hawaii from 30 December 2017 to 4 January 2018 and the wilds of Africa from 17 – 23 February 2018. These new voyages follow on the successful, sold-out inaugural Crystal AirCruise to the exotic South Pacific islands of Tahiti and Fiji, which took place during the Golden Week holidays earlier this month.

“We are excited to announce our next itineraries for Crystal Skye, especially as a vehicle to create unsurpassed experiences for our guests to celebrate such special occasions as New Year’s and Chinese New Year,” said Mr Kent Zhu, President of Genting Cruise Lines, the parent company of Crystal AirCruises. “With the overwhelming success of our sold-out inaugural AirCruise to Tahiti and Fiji earlier this month, we are encouraged by the response of our guests to the AirCruises concept as a new and ultra-luxurious mode of travel for a select, discerning echelon of jet-setters.”

Double New Year’s Celebrations – 2018 New Year’s Eve AirCruise

Crystal Skye will do the impossible by providing guests with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel across time! Turn back the clock and celebrate New Year’s Eve twice on both sides of the International Date Line in Sydney, Australia and Hawaii, United States from 30 December 2017 to 4 January 2018 at USD 29,999 per person round-trip from Singapore.

Be amongst the first in the world to usher in the New Year at the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge Fireworks from the comfort of your own private boat. Take a leisurely stroll through historic Sydney at “The Rocks”, a charming district filled with cobbled lanes, hidden alleyways, delightful cafes and boutiques waiting to be discovered, or indulge in a scrumptious seafood feast in one of the city’s many top restaurants. From locally recommended spots to coveted sightseeing attractions, explore the sights and scenes of the city’s most iconic destinations including SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, the Australian National Maritime Museum, Powerhouse Museum, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge.

Beat the clock and celebrate New Year’s Eve again by crossing the International Date Line to the tropics of Hawaii to count-down 2018 on the beaches of Honolulu. Surrounded by the stunning scenery of the USA’s western-most state, immerse yourself in a ‘luau’, a customary Hawaiian feast with lively music and cultural performances, take in a traditional hula performance or explore the vivid turquoise waters, abundant coral reefs and white sand beaches of Waikiki Beach. Hike up to the stunning National Natural Landmark of Diamond Head to take in sweeping vistas of Oahu, visit the charming Iolani Palace, the only chance to tour a royal residence on American soil, or take in the history at the infamous World War II site of Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial.

Wonders of Africa Safari Adventure – Chinese New Year AirCruise

Embark on an adventure both rare and astounding this Chinese New Year on a journey of discovery to the untamed wilds of Kenya from 17 – 23 February 2018 at USD 28,000 per person round-trip from Hong Kong.

Welcome the year of the dog on an unforgettable voyage to Africa and encounter exotic wildlife on safari through the famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya including cheetahs, elephants, zebras, lions, hippopotamus and more, and witness ancient African rituals including the “jumping dance” of the Maasai tribe warriors. Accommodations at the Governor’s Camp mean more ‘glamping’ than camping with spacious, luxury tents and feasting in the wilds during elegant open-air dinners. Celebrate Chinese New Year with an authentic banquet prepared by a guest Chinese chef and revel in the juxtaposition of traditional red lanterns, ‘lai-see’ packets and lion dance against a stunning backdrop of lush grasslands and acacia woodlands.

“Our New Year’s AirCruise itineraries showcase the creative destination programming that Crystal Skye can offer our guests, combining the convenience of air travel and the exhilarating adventure of land tours,” said Mr Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises and Crystal AirCruises. “In addition to our all-inclusive, global voyages, we also offer guests the option of chartering the aircraft to create personalized, bespoke itineraries that feature uncompromising commitment to discovery and enrichment that can only be realized through unique travel experiences.”
