Travel Arrangements


Crystal Ocean and Yacht/Expedition

Crystal Cruises will arrange and book flight tickets to and from the ship. You will not have any fees or costs related to joining the ship. All crew will receive meal allowance when travelling internationally. In most ports, you will arrive one day prior to joining and overnight at a hotel.

Upon arrival you will be met by a representative from our port agency which will arrange necessary hotel and/or transportation arrangements. Accommodation and transportation from the airport to the hotel and to the ship the following morning will be handled by the port agent.

Crystal River

You have to make your own travel arrangements to join the ship and be reimbursed up to a certain amount depending on where you live. Usually you arrive the same day as you start working. As a general rule and outlined in your contract, travel compensation in connection with joining and leaving the ship will be paid by the employer.
