In announcing itineraries for all of 2014 and early 2015, the luxury line said it will make nine maiden calls in 2015, including mbodifototra and Tolanaro, Madagascar; Richards Bay, South Africa; Sanya, China; and Albany, Australia. Virtually all of its itineraries from January to mid-April will be new, it said. In 2014, Crystal said nearly every itinerary features at least one overnight stay, plus two consecutive overnights in many places like Yangon, Myanmar; Shanghai; Hong Kong; St. Petersburg, Russia; and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
