LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2010 – Luxury specialist Crystal Cruises is adding valuable incentives for its 2011 World Cruise. A new Save Now, Save Later promotion invites travelers to book the 110-day World Cruise – or any of its seven segments – by April 30, 2010 and enjoy two-for-one fares and value-added bonuses, plus save 20% on virtually any 2011 or 2012 cruise. Additionally, World Cruise fares are as much as 20% lower than 2010, depending on category and itinerary.

Visiting 44 ports in 25 countries, Crystal Serenity’s “Grand Exotic Expedition” sails from Los Angeles to London January 17, 2011 and includes:

* 2-for-1 World Cruise fares if booked by April 30, 2010;

* Onboard booking savings for guests booking their next cruise on board

“The Save Now, Save Later promotion provides a compelling opportunity to enjoy what connoisseurs consider the ultimate vacation – a Crystal Cruises World Cruise,” says Bill Smith, Crystal’s senior vice president, sales and marketing. “Each segment of the World Cruise features unforgettable destinations, stimulating activities enriched with notable speakers, classes, special shore-side excursions, events, and the warmth and seamless luxury of the most consistently rated #1 cruise ship in the world.”

Available in seven segments from 12 to 21 days, the 2011 World Cruise includes many overnight port stays in its journey around the world.
