Luggage Less Traveled: Crystal and Luggage Concierge Offer 2-for-1 Service in 2010

Newspapers

LOS ANGELES, September 23, 2009 – Worldwide travel without the stress and worry of losing one’s luggage is one thing, but getting that peace of mind for half the cost is a welcome luxury.

Luggage Concierge, Crystal Cruises’ exclusive partner in door-to-door luggage delivery service, is offering the line’s guests the convenience of shipping their luggage to and from every Crystal cruise in 2010 at reduced two-for-one pricing. In fact, the new pricing for shipping two bags in 2010 is even less than shipping one bag in 2009.

Airline industry reports claim that each year nearly 2 million bags are lost and not found. Luggage Concierge has successfully delivered tens of thousands of bags, including thousands for Crystal guests, in the last twelve months without the loss of one bag. With this service, guests are able to travel with the peace of mind that their luggage will await them in their stateroom.

Additionally, included in Luggage Concierge’s service is automatic insurance of $2,500 per bag, for all domestic and international shipments. Guests also receive personalized tracking notification via their preferred method of phone, e-mail or fax.

“Crystal guests appreciate convenience and ease as a significant part of the luxury travel experience,” says John Stoll, Crystal’s director of land programs. “The Luggage Concierge service continues to provide our guests with great service, and the added value for 2010 is a fantastic bonus.”

Crystal’s 2010 worldwide itineraries span the globe, from exotic Middle East and European voyages to a Panama Canal cruise from New York to Los Angeles.

Arrangements for luggage shipment can be made through luggageconcierge.com/crystal, or through the line’s own website.
