Free Air Sweetens Crystal’s Valentine’s Day Cruise

LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2009 – Crystal Cruises is sweetening its Valentine’s Day Panama Canal itinerary with complimentary air from select cities. Available with Crystal Symphony’s Miami – Los Angeles voyage departing February 14, 2010, the offer extends free air fare to guests originating in those cities, Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach. In conjunction with already dramatic savings and perks for Crystal’s 20th Anniversary in 2010, the 14-day voyage features Value Collection Fares up to 50% off Special Savings Fares, plus a $500 per person, All Inclusive – As You Wish shipboard credit.

“Discriminating travelers appreciate great value as much as stylish choices and superb service. A coast-to-coast cruise on Crystal offers North American travelers the convenience of a domestic departure and more time to savor Crystal’s renowned onboard experience,” says Bill Smith, senior vice president, sales and marketing. “Whether one is seeking time to spa, take classes through the Creative Learning Institute, or relishing Nobu’s creative sushi, a Crystal Panama Canal cruise offers a ‘World’s Best’ tropical vacation at a refreshing change of pace from more port intensive itineraries.”

In addition to the daylight transit of the Panama Canal, the itinerary calls at Miami; Huatulco, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Cartagena, Colombia; and San Diego and Los Angeles, California. Value priced cruise fares start at $3,630 per person, double occupancy.
