Effective January 1, Crystal Cruises increased fares for as many as 19 cruises and set a new booking deadline of February 28, 2012 for 2012 and 2013 Book Now fares. 

Current Book Now fares, available at www.crystalcruises.com, offer early booking special offers -- as much as $2,000/person, or $4,000/couple, off “extraordinary” 2-for-1 fares.

The line’s Book Now promotion provides travelers with a two-month window for the lowest prices possible on every worldwide cruise aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity in 2012 and 2013.  

As promised, when the previously published fares expired on December 31, Crystal raised fares from $200-$400 per couple on select cruises. 

Every 60 days Crystal is reviewing its pricing on every cruise.  Since the Book Now pricing program was launched in September, Crystal has raised fares with each booking deadline. Additional price increases are expected on February 29.

“Savvy shoppers who plan ahead are truly enjoying the best pricing for the best vacation experiences in the world,” says Jack Anderson, senior vice president, marketing and sales.   “True to our word, we have once again raised fares for sailings booking ahead of forecasts.  While we have exceptional fares still available for many worldwide cruises, we are not guaranteeing they will last after February 28.”
