Crystal Cruises Introduces 2012 with “Book Now” Fares and Bonus Savings

Newspapers

LOS ANGELES, September 1, 2011 – Crystal is launching its luxe collection of worldwide 2012 cruises with compelling Book Now fares, available for a limited time.

Until October 31, 2011, all sailings will continue to feature 2-for-1 prices and free round-trip air transportation from more than 20 North American gateways (or generous air credits). On select sailings, travelers can also enjoy additional Book Now Savings – with as much as $4,000/couple in fare reductions.

While many travel agents and consumers are accustomed to promotion extensions, Crystal promises that every cruise will be reviewed at the end of October. On November 1, cruise fares will rise for select sailings.

“We are introducing the 2012 travel year on Crystal Cruises with the best pricing on the best itineraries, offering extraordinary service and enrichment on the vacation product that so many discerning luxury travelers regard as the very best experience in the world,” says Jack Anderson, senior vice president, marketing and sales. “Book now means exactly what it says. We want to ensure that those who book early enjoy the best pricing.”

In 2012, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will visit 182 ports-of-call in 59 countries on 60 itineraries worldwide. Destination choices include the western and eastern Mediterranean, Black Sea, North Cape, western Europe, Greek Isles, Baltic & Russia, China, Japan, southeast Asia, Australia, South Pacific, South America, New England/Canada, Panama Canal, British Isles, Canary Islands and Mexican Riviera on itineraries of seven to 94 days.

Crystal Cruises’ ocean resort experience always includes a host of complimentary amenities, from enlightening enrichment speakers and fitness classes to pampering pillow menus and specialty restaurant dining featuring the cuisine of Nobu Matsuhisa and Piero Selvaggio. In the spring of 2012, vacations on the award-winning Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will also include complimentary fine wines and premium spirits throughout the ship, open bar service in all lounges, and pre-paid gratuities for housekeeping, bar and dining staff. Crystal’s passion for taking care of guests in an inviting environment of extraordinary space, quality and choices has earned the company more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, resort, or hotel in history.
