Crystal 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:

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:

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.
