Crystal Cruises is unveiling its own royal treatment for the 72nd annual Monaco Grand Prix, via two different posh and intimate Crystal Adventures – to be offered during Crystal Serenity’s 12-day luxury Mediterranean cruise, departing May 18 from Venice to Barcelona. Thanks to a May 25 shipboard overnight in Monte Carlo, guests can celebrate one of the world’s most prestigious races from day to dawn, via prime grandstand seats in the heart of the action during the day and a new Boutique Adventure, possibly hob-knobbing with the winners at a VIP F1 party all night.
Exclusive Grandstand Experience: Cheer with Formula 1 fans from around the world, in a prime grandstand location near the roaring start/finish line and extra Crystal touches to enhance guests’ comfort, including catered lunch, cushioned seating, ear protection, souvenir mementos, hosts providing commentary while guiding guests to the race, and staff nearby to assist throughout the day.
VIP Nightclubbing at the Amber Lounge (Boutique Adventure): Crystal will have a limited number of VIP tables with flowing Dom Perignon and dancing until 6 am (plus luxury transportation all night) at F1’s exclusive after-party, where drivers, celebrities and royalty often gather post-race.
“From a Crystal Adventure that captures the interests of racing enthusiasts to a Boutique Adventure that excites those seeking intimate VIP experiences, we’ve crafted ‘bucket list’ options that offer unique perspectives of, and access to, the glamour and pageantry of this World Class event.” says John Stoll, vice president of land programs.
With additional overnights in Venice and Barcelona, Crystal’s only 2014 call to Kotor, Montenegro, and additional calls to Italy’s Sicily/Taormina, Sorrento, Rome/Civitavecchia, and Florence/Livorno, the itinerary offers time in both the Mediterranean’s most popular port cities and Southern Europe’s more hidden gems.
Crystal’s passion for creating exclusive, eye-opening luxury shore-side experiences are cornerstones of its Crystal Adventures program, earning the line top ratings for two decades.
