Crystal Cruises' 2011 Worldwide Atlas is now available to luxury travelers and travel professionals. At 212 pages, the Atlas is Crystal's most extensive promotional publication to date, and features detailed sections dedicated to the line's most recent developments. Boasting 59 global itineraries - including new locales in West Africa and the line's long anticipated return to summer Alaska cruising - plus programming, value and ship information, the brochure is a comprehensive resource for planning the luxury vacation experience heralded as the "World's Best" year after year.
Prominently highlighted in the 2011 Atlas are Crystal's new Perfect Choice DiningT with flexible Open Dining by ReservationT; Two-for-One cruise fares and complimentary air transportation and transfers (on air/sea dates) on all sailings; step-by-step instructions for the new online Priority Check-in & Planning Center; enriching Ocean ViewsT presentations and 'You Care, We Care' excursions; and a section dedicated to Crystal Symphony's multi-million dollar redesign.
"Opening with the words 'Your wish, our command,' the 2011 Atlas focuses on Crystal's commitment to unparalleled service and personalized value as well as classic Crystal hallmarks - space, quality and choices," says Nitsa Lewis, vice president of marketing. "The messaging is stylish and engaging, designed to draw travelers in to the Crystal Experience."
