Luxury Line's You Care, We Care Program Offers Philanthropic Tours in Asia & Africa
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystal Cruises' guests and crew will have more opportunities – almost twice as many more – to give back locally during 2014's World Cruise. With an expanded You Care, We Care program during Crystal Serenity's 89-day, LA to London global journey (departing January 18), volunteers can help underprivileged children, the eco-system, or a local memorial, in Hawaii, Asia, and/or Africa, with Crystal handling all costs and logistics. Typically, Crystal offers one complimentary voluntour per cruise, always aiding a small, local organization. However, the World Cruise's five segments next year boast seven unique excursions in seven ports. Assistance opportunities include:
"Our You Care, We Care participants have cherished connecting to the destinations in such an intimate, interactive, and compassionate way," says Thomas Mazloum, Crystal's executive vice president. "They love seeing facets of a culture not usually visited on a luxury vacation, and return to the ship feeling like they may have made a difference, however small or large. Just a few hours together can be incredibly informative, enriching, and so memorable, for both the recipients and those giving."
March 10's Singapore to Cape Town segment should prove to be especially appealing to the philanthropic-minded, with three different You Care, We Care opportunities during the 18-day voyage.
Since launching in 2011, Crystal's You Care, We Care program has aided more than 50 in-need communities around the world, with new organizations constantly reviewed by the Land Programs team year-round. Some communities are visited just once a year, while others have been visited several times a season, and returned to the following year, building goodwill over multiple visits. Recent You Care, We Care excursions have included:
A cornerstone of Crystal Cruises' culture is its genuine hospitality and service that has been internationally celebrated for two decades. This spirit of generosity extends to its respectful treatment of the environment, oceans and communities in which it travels.
