Crystal Cruises’ fall voyages are now on sale with newly reduced fares from as low as $2,400 per person and new Penthouse and Verandah savings up to $8,000 per couple. Beginning with its August 26 Mediterranean cruise on Crystal Serenity and its first 2011 Canada/New England cruise on Crystal Symphony, Crystal is offering new savings on every one of its 22 fall cruises, including both Christmas/New Year departures.
Guests will still receive up to $2,000 per couple “All Inclusive–As You Wish” shipboard credits and free air from 20+ North American gateways, now including Honolulu.
Crystal’s fall cruise collection includes a first-class array of prime overseas and domestic vacations, including the romantic Mediterranean; culturally-rich Black Sea; exotic Canary Islands including Morocco; historic Holy Land; swinging Big Band Transatlantic sailing; fascinating Panama Canal; tropical Mexican Riviera and Caribbean; crisp, colorful New England and Canada; new luxury Pacific Coast escapes; and end-of-year holiday cruises to Hawaii and the Caribbean, with Panama Canal highlights.
“CLIA [Cruise Lines International Association] recently reported travel agent optimism for 2011 cruise sales,” says Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing Bill Smith. “We want to take advantage of this surging market interest with a strong price/value message. This is a great chance for new, value-conscious travelers to take an introductory cruise and learn why 60% of people who book a vacation with us are repeat guests.”
One signature example of the value inherent in the Crystal Experience is a plethora of all-inclusive fine dining options, now incorporating new, flexible “Perfect Choice Dining” for choose-your-own-time dinner reservations.
Bill Smith sums up: “Once on board, travelers recognize that our winning combination of service, choice, space, quality, and value comprise a vacation experience that really can’t be beat.”
