In conjunction with its three winter/spring 2009 Panama Canal cruises between Los Angeles and Miami, Crystal Cruises is offering complimentary air fare to guests originating in those cities, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.  Value Collection and Special Savings Fares offers fares up to 50% off.

The special offer is available with Crystal Serenity’s 15-day cruise from Miami to Los Angeles, departing on January 6; Crystal Symphony’s 14-day cruise from Miami to Los Angeles, departing on February 16; and Crystal Serenity’s 16-day cruise from Los Angeles to Miami, departing on May 7.  In addition to the daylight transit of the Panama Canal, the luxury cruises call at ports in Mexico, Costa Rica and the Caribbean and/or South America.

“A coast-to-coast cruise on Crystal offers North American travelers the convenience of a domestic departure and the time to savor Crystal’s renowned onboard experience,” says Bill Smith, senior vice president, sales and marketing.  “Whether one is seeking time to spa, take classes through the Creative Learning Institute, or relishing Nobu’s creative sushi, a Crystal Panama Canal cruise offers a ‘World’s Best’ tropical vacation at a refreshing change of pace from more port intensive itineraries.  Discriminating travelers appreciate great value as much as stylish choices and superb service.”

The February 16 and May 6 cruises also offer culinary and wellness “Experiences of Discovery,” respectively.  Depending on the cruise, guest chefs, wine experts, and expert instructors in yoga, Pilates and fitness will share their insights.
