Desmond Tutu to join Crystal Cruises
Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be a guest speaker aboard Crystal Cruises' 13th March 2015 cruise as Crystal Serenity sails from Perth to Cape Town, where Tutu is Archbishop Emeritus.
Participating in complimentary presentations and interactive Q & A sessions, the Archbishop will share personal insights about South Africa's history.
"Our inquisitive guests are engaged travellers who will relish the rare opportunity to experience South Africa through the eyes of one of the country's most precious sons...and perhaps take some of his inspirational spirit home with them," says Philip Ordever, vice president of international sales and marketing.
Tutu is just one of 50 stimulating speakers planned for Crystal's 25th Anniversary "Silver Celebration" World Cruise aboard Crystal Serenity. The 108-night voyage comprises six 16- to 21-night segments sailing between Miami, Lima, Auckland, Perth, Cape Town and Rio.
This 21-night segment visits several South African cities central to Archbishop Tutu's legacy, including Durban, Port Elizabeth, Richards Bay (maiden call) and Cape Town (overnight). Other calls include Mauritius/Port Louis, Republic of Mauritius; St-Denis, Réunion, France; Ambodifotatra and Taolanaro, Madagascar (both maiden calls); Maputo, Mozambique; and the embarkation port of Perth, Australia.
Until the 29th August "Book Now" deadline, all-inclusive fly/cruise fares start from £8,348 per person. For more information or to book contact The Luxury Cruise Company.
