Five Ways to Give Back Globally in 2013

Give BackCrystal Cruises has reaffirmed its commitment to its You Care, We Care program by offering complimentary opportunities for guests and crew to volunteer around the world in 2013 while sailing aboard Crystal Serenity or Crystal Symphony.  Enlightening shoreside experiences are planned for California to Croatia, allowing Crystal travelers to:

1. AID ANIMALS: Assist in the  rescue and care for animals, ranging from dolphins to cats, at rescue and rehabilitation centers throughout Europe, in:

  • Barcelona - CRAM Rescue & Rehabilitation Center
  • Rostock, Germany - Rostock Zoological Garden
  • Bergen, Norway - Animal Protection Rescue Center

2. SUPPORT DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES: Provide company, gardening, dining, or decorating assistance for disabled and elderly residents of caretaking facilities, ranging from a 650-year-old elder-care home to a 400-year-old Italian charity brotherhood, in:

  • Dubrovnik - Domus Christi Home for the Elderly
  • Livorno - Luigi Scotto Foundation
  • Naples - Charity of Pio Monte della Misericordia
  • Valencia - AIDEM Association

3.  CARE FOR CHILDREN: Help underprivileged children around the globe, from playing with homeless kids rescued from the streets to teaching tots how to read, in:

  • Odessa - The Way Home
  • Singapore - LIFE literacy program
  • Boston – Cradles to Crayons

4.  FEED THE HUNGRY: Feed those less fortunate via orchard-picking, food-serving, or donation-organizing and distribution, in:

  • Santa Barbara - Backyard Bounty

5. GIVE GREEN: Keep natural landscapes clean via conservation efforts, in:

  • Astoria, Oregon - Fort Stevens State Park

Crystal's You Care, We Care program was launched in 2011.  Since then, the cruise line has planned to offer at least one volunteer excursion on every cruise and covered all logistical arrangements and costs for guests and crew to participate. Some charitable organizations have been visited just once a year, while others have been visited several times a season, and returned to the following year, building goodwill over multiple visits. This year, the program will extend outreach in Europe, New England/Canada, South America, and Asia.

A cornerstone of Crystal Cruises' culture is its genuine hospitality and service that has been internationally celebrated for two decades. This spirit of generosity extends to its respectful treatment of the environment, oceans and communities in which it travels.
