Happy New Year…2015! Prime Hong Kong Berth Puts Crystal Cruises Front-Row For Next Eve Spectacle

Southeast Asia Holiday Sailing is Crystal's First-Ever Round-Trip from Bangkok

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Before the bubbles have settled in this year's champagne glasses, Crystal Cruises has set party plans to spend next New Year's Eve in Hong Kong, home of one of the most spectacular Eve bashes on the planet.

From December 30 through January 1, Crystal Symphony will be docked at Ocean Terminal in Kowloon for a bird's eye view of the famously elaborate countdown celebration and musical pyrotechnics display in Victoria Harbour.  The prime spot also provides the perfect vantage point for viewing the massive skyscrapers specially illuminated for the holidays and the nightly Symphony of Lights – the largest permanent light show in the world.  

"This is a 'bucket list' opportunity for guests to enjoy a truly over-the-top New Year's, in one of the world's grandest ports, steeped in exotic traditions and history, while surrounded by the comfort of Crystal's ultra-luxury handling," says John Stoll, vice president of land programs.  "For anyone whose New Year's resolution includes traveling more, this entire itinerary is a great way to commit."

The "China Sea Holiday Spectacular" Asia cruise boasts several holiday celebrations.  Christmas and Hanukkah will be celebrated with traditional feasts, parties, holiday shows, and religious services amidst Crystal's lavish seasonal decor.  On New Year's Eve, besides taking in Hong Kong's holiday festivities in  luxurious comfort on board, Crystal guests can also enjoy a multi-course gourmet dinner, champagne, live music, and a festive balloon drop. 

The 15-day holiday voyage begins December 21 and sails to Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City (overnight), Chan May, through Halong Bay, and on to Hanoi's port of Hongai, and Hong Kong (two nights), conveniently round-trip from Bangkok's port of Laem Chebang.  All-inclusive fares begin at $7,425/person, with $600/person air allowance if booked by February 28.

Crystal's passion for taking care of guests in an inviting environment of extraordinary space, quality and choices has earned the company more "World's Best" awards than any other cruise line, resort, or hotel in history.
