New Pacific Coast Voyages Added to Crystal Spring Calendar

Newspapers

LOS ANGELES, August 11, 2010 – Luxury specialist Crystal Cruises announces two brand new seven-day getaways exploring the Pacific Coast for April 2011. Sailing between Los Angeles and Vancouver aboard the award-winning Crystal Symphony, the northbound and southbound “Pacific Escape” and “Coastal Exploration” itineraries visit Santa Barbara and San Francisco, California; Seattle, Washington; Astoria, Oregon; and Victoria, British Columbia.

“Crystal’s Pacific Coast cruises showcase a stunning and remarkably diverse blend of iconic West Coast highlights, from the California beaches and the Golden Gate Bridge to the plush forests of Oregon and British Columbia,” says Bill Smith, senior vice president, sales & marketing. “The itineraries offer our guests new destinations, the opportunity to sail with the World’s Best at an incredible value and great convenience for North American travelers. Even international guests can enjoy this sampler of some of the most beautiful places in the western U.S. and Canada.”

Departing on April 10 and 17, the new voyages replace two Mexican Riviera itineraries. “The beauty of a floating resort is that you can move your hotel to other destinations when there is demand. We are keeping several fall 2010 itineraries through the Mexican Riviera, in addition to others in spring and fall 2011; the West Coast and Northwest itineraries add dimension and scope to the worldwide destinations we’re offering in 2011,” says Smith.

Promotional Two-for-One cruise fares start at $2,695 per person, and include $500 per person, ‘All Inclusive – As You Wish’ shipboard spending credits. For bookings by September 30, 2010, guests also enjoy complimentary air transportation from more than 20 North American gateway cities.

Also new in 2011 is Open Dining by Reservation evening dining that adds more choices, convenience and flexibility – or Perfect Choice – to the line’s acclaimed classic main and late dinner seatings. The Crystal Experience is distinguished by unparalleled service, abundant space, extensive choices and superior quality – at an exceptional value. Celebrating 15 and 16 years as “World’s Best” in its category by the readers of Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler, respectively, among many other coveted hospitality awards, Crystal has been recognized as #1 more than another cruise line, hotel or resort in history.
