Crystal Cruises’ new 'Extreme Thrill Seekers' Experiences of Discovery theme cruise will see guests hunting crocodiles, encountering great whites and sailing in a round-the-world yacht race—figuratively—via stories from expert guest speakers.
During a March 10 Singapore to Cape Town World Cruise segment, Crystal Serenity will feature British round-the-world yachtswoman and adventurer Rona Cant. Her inspiring story takes her from being a middle-aged secretary and single mother to sailing the world’s most difficult yacht race, the BT Global Challenge, as a novice sailor, to trekking Vancouver’s West Coast Trail (one of the world’s ten toughest trails) just two days after and dog-sledding across a 600km Arctic path that had never been traversed before.
Shark diver Chris Fallows will also be onboard to discuss his encounters with Great White Sharks around South Africa’s Seal Island and other breaching grounds throughout the world, in an effort to both capture their striking images on camera and educate others about the realities of the creatures and their conservation.
Meanwhile, 'Crocodile Mick' Pitman, considered a real-life Crocodile Dundee, will share his 30-plus years of dynamic Aussie Outback experience hunting and capturing crocodiles.
The cruise segment offers travellers a peek into the rugged terrain and exotic coastlines renowned for adventurous endeavours, first visiting Bangkok, Thailand and Siem Reap, Cambodia as part of a complimentary pre-cruise land programme, then sailing from Singapore to Jakarta, Indonesia; Mauritius/Port Louis, Republic of Mauritius; and Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town in South Africa.
All-inclusive fly/cruise fares start from £6,344 per person if booked by January 3, with shorter “Getaway” cruise legs also available from Singapore to Mauritius and Mauritius to Cape Town.
