Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 New York City, USA
High above one of the world’s most fascinating cities, the Mandarin Oriental elevates the anticipation of your journey that awaits. Step back into the golden age of air travel and meet fellow guests at Crystal’s signature Launch Day & Bon Voyage festitivities, dinner and overnight.

Day 2 New York City, USA - Lima, Peru

Days 3-4 Lima, Peru
Astonishing archaeological ruins meld into the grandeur of Andean landscapes and coastal plains in Peru. Following an overnight in Lima, choose from two destination experiences: one to Cusco to explore Machu Picchu via the Belmond Hiram Bingham Train; the other to Paracas to see the Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands, the "Galapagos of Peru."

Day 5 Lima, Peru - Easter Island, Chile

Day 6 Easter Island, Chile
Ancient navigators colonized Easter Island, part of the great Polynesian migration that settled archipelagos from here to Hawaii to New Zealand. Learn about the early Rapa Pui people and marvel at the colossal moai, among the most famous — and mysterious — monuments in the world. 

Day 7 Easter Island, Chile - Crossing the International Dateline

Day 8 Crossing the International Dateline - Cairns, Australia

Day 9 Cairns, Australia
Head out to the Outback for an encounter with indigenous Aborigines. Guided by an Elder, explore land considered sacred and normally closed to outsiders. Uncover rock art, listen to dreaming stories and experience an immersion into the oldest continuous culture on the planet.

Day 10 Cairns, Australia - Siem Reap, Cambodia

Day 11 Siem Reap, Cambodia
Angkor, capital of the Khmer empire, was renowned for its superb architecture, vast lakes, and temples bursting with diamonds, rubies and gold. Hidden in the jungle until the late 19th century, Angkor Wat is perhaps, the most inspired monument conceived by the human mind.

Day 12 Siem Reap, Cambodia - Lhasa (Kathmandu), Tibet

Days 13-14 Lhasa (Kathmandu), Tibet
Journey through the Himalayas to some of the most beautiful and isolated places on earth. Choice of a three-night stay in Kathmandu, Nepal, to explore a trove of UNESCO-treasured palaces and temples; or an overnight in Nepal followed by a two-day trip to Lhasa, Tibet, a spiritual land of monasteries, monks and mantras.

Day 15 Lhasa (Kathmandu), Tibet - Agra, India

Day 16 Agra, India
Built by the great Mogul emperor Shah Jehan in memory of his wife, the Taj Mahal is the world’s greatest monument to eternal love. Observe the splendor of this marble masterpiece at dawn or dusk when the Taj takes on different hues with the day’s changing light.

Day 17 Agra, India - Cape Town, South Africa

Days 18-19
 Cape Town, South Africa
Not only is Cape Town stunning, but its surroundings are equally spectacular. Circle around the Cape Peninsula with its majestic panoramas and unique wildlife, from ostrich farms and foraging baboons to Africa’s only colony of penguins, nesting, diving, and strutting their stuff.

Day 20 Cape Town, South Africa - Abu Dhabi, UAE

Day 21 Abu Dhabi, UAE
A mirage of towering skyscrapers sparkle in the blue waters of the Gulf, while just outside the city, Bedouins herd caravans of camels across the desert dunes. Go wadi bashing on a desert safari. Then live the thrill of a Formula 1 driver at the amazing Yas Marina Circuit.

Day 22 Abu Dhabi, UAE - New York City, USA
