Crystal Cruises announced their plans to create a "Private Adventure Option" for passengers.
"Beginning this August/September, parties of two, four or six can opt for a personal guide and private vehicle to tour Ephesus, Pompeii or the city of Barcelona, for example – on a shore-side itinerary already carefully crafted by Crystal's Land Programs team and its worldwide tour operators."
Launching August 14 and September 13 on Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, respectively, the "Private Adventure Option" can be pre-reserved at least one week prior to embarkation by emailing email@example.com
. Prices will be at least 25% more than group tour fares, but vary depending on excursion length, vehicle size, guide costs and sites visited.
What we want to know is the draw of a private shore excursion attractive enough to pay the 25% surcharge?
