Going Green in Malta with New Crystal Adventure

This fall, Crystal Cruises’ guests have the opportunity to give back and see Valletta, Malta from a different point of view on award-winning Crystal Serenity voyages this fall.  A brand new Crystal Adventure invites travelers to “Go Green” in Malta, by planting trees in the island’s only national park, donating food at a local charity and learning eco-conscious planting and harvesting practices at a local organic farm.  The optional Crystal Adventure is available on Crystal Serenity’s 12-day, October 19 Mediterranean/Holy Land voyage from Athens to Rome, and the 11-day, October 31 Mediterranean/Spain voyage from Rome to Barcelona, and is $95 per person. 

“This excursion affords guests the opportunity to contribute to the local needs in Valletta, and also gain a better understanding of the environmental efforts of the destination,” says John Stoll, vice president, land and port operations.  “Like so many Crystal Adventures, this experience offers a new point of view for guests who want to explore destinations from a deeper, more informed perspective.”

The nearly eight-hour excursion begins with a visit to Ta’ Qali National Park, where guests will plant trees and learn about the park’s conservation efforts.  Following a guided tour and lunch at eco-conscious Ta’ Zeppi Organic Farm, guests will visit a local orphan refuge, where they will donate time and food for the young residents.

The Valletta excursion highlights Crystal’s efforts to bring global awareness to its six-star vacation experiences, and is a prelude to its global ‘You Care, We Care’ program debuting in 2011.
