Friends of Festival at Sea 2020
Sailing Mar 1 - 16, 2020 from Singapore to
Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China on board the Crystal Symphony.
Luxury Cruising with an African American Twist embodies our Friends program. Our luxury voyages offer serene suites, exquisite fine dining options, personalized service and enriching activities, all within a context conductive to the modern African American globe-trotter.
Our 2020 Southeast Asia program will be hosted on board the Crystal Symphony. The Symphony recently emerged from a multi-million-dollar renovation of Crystal Luxury. The ship now features spacious new suites and penthouses, new and expanded dining options with open seating, and more state-of-the-art technologies.
Every day will be a culinary adventure onboard the Crystal Symphony.
Over beautifully set tables, you’ll dine on Michelin-level cuisines. The Waterside offers exceptional menus of Classic favorites and Modern specialties. The Churrascaria is the new Brazilian steakhouse offering a mouth-watering selection of tapas and ceviches, salads and soups, vegetables, and freshly grilled meat and seafood.
Silk Kitchen and Bar is the Chinese-inspired al fresco where you will enjoy authentic family-style sharing plates. Umi Uma Restaurant & Sushi Bar is Nobu’s specialty restaurant, serving his acclaimed Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. Finally, you will not want to miss Prego, serving Italian favorites.
The Asian Continent is blessed with exquisite natural beauty, deep spiritual richness and compelling historical importance. From the cosmopolitan hub of Singapore, to the lively markets of Thailand ... sacred temples of Cambodia ... and the beautiful beaches of Vietnam, our Friends voyage will take you on a deep cultural exploration of the Wonders of Southeast Asia before we disembark in Hong Kong.
Our Friends program provides opportunities for clients to further engage with each destination, creating more intimate and impactful experiences. There is something for everyone on our 2020 Wonders of the Southeast Asia program.
