Cruises International

Gareth Cliff has been on an adventure of a lifetime with Cruises International and Crystal Cruises. Joined by Lorna Maseko, they sailed on the magnificent Crystal Serenity ‘President’s Cruise’ from Lisbon to Monaco with stops in Barcelona and Cassis.

“Since the beginning, Crystal has been the standard-bearer for excellence in luxury travel, remaining the undisputed choice among the savviest world travellers. Today, we are redefining it altogether, expanding the possibilities for our guests with choices, experiences and luxuries unmatched in the industry. By Ocean, River, Yacht and Air, each Crystal Experience is designed to showcase the world and its wonders in the most remarkable ways.”

On board the Crystal Serenity was the CliffCentral pop-up studio and Gareth takes us behind the scenes with all the people who make it all happen.
