New All Inclusive – As You Wish And Bonuses Savings Extend To New Crystal South America Cruises

LOS ANGELES, March 10, 2009 – Due to the overwhelming response to the introduction of its recent “Celebration” savings and shipboard credit promotions for Europe, luxury specialist Crystal Cruises is expanding the offers to its Amazon and South America itineraries later this year. On three Crystal Symphony voyages ranging from 13 to 15 days, guests can save up to $1,500 per couple, and customize their vacation with a $2,000 per couple All Inclusive – As You Wish spending credit. The Amazon cruises mark the first time Crystal has cruised that region since 2006.

“Since its recent introduction, luxury travelers have welcomed the exceptional value and freedom of choice that Crystal’s All Inclusive – As You Wish spending credit offers,” says Bill Smith, senior vice president, sales & marketing. “We’re not just including a few pre-determined amenities with our cruise fares. Besides the inherent value of a Crystal Cruise, guests can spend the bonus dollars on experiences that are meaningful to them.”

Crystal’s reduced Celebration Savings cruise fares commemorate its 15-year record as “Best Large-Ship Cruise Line,” voted by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. Per couple, the savings add up to $1,500 for penthouse accommodations, $1,000 for verandah staterooms and $750 for deluxe staterooms.
