Crystal Cruises’ is known for their unfailing luxury, and this year, they’ve added a private option for exploring Europe: guests can hire their own car and driver, with a local, English-speaking guide. (Drivers with other language options are also available.)

This new option allows singles, couples and small groups (up to 8 people) to customize time in various ports.  “Many of today’s luxury guests like to explore on their own, but don’t enjoy the hassle, time and questionable quality of searching for transportation and guides, as well as the aggravation of negotiating fees,” says John Stoll, vice president, land and port operations.

The new private car and driver services start at $270 per car.

This program is in addition to the following Crystal shore excursion options, according to the line:

•         Organized shore tours that range from special-interest adventures and city overviews to very intimate only-with-Crystal Cruises Boutique Adventures, and unique, high end Signature Collection experiences to You Care, We Care voluntourism excursions.

•         Private Options: For guests wanting to follow the same tour itinerary as select Crystal Adventures, privately.

•         Private Adventures: Ultra-personalized and fully customized to a guest’s exact wishes in advance by Crystal, including itineraries, admissions, meals, and transportation.

•         Overland Adventures: Multiple-day excursions on land, further from port, providing two to three days of intimate exploration ashore, with hotel stays.
