New York Overnights and Maine Maiden Call Highlight Crystal’s Fall New England & Canada Voyages

Newspapers

LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2010 – A new overnight stay in New York and a maiden visit to Portland, Maine are among the highlights of Crystal Cruises’ New England & Canada series in fall 2010. Four 11-day cruises aboard the award-winning Crystal Symphony will sail between New York and Montréal beginning September 19, each with two overnight calls and nearly 100 Crystal Adventures ashore to showcase the region’s natural beauty and rich history.

Departing September 19, September 30, October 11 and October 22, all voyages feature overnight stays in Montréal and either Boston or New York, plus visits to Newport, Rhode Island; Saint John, New Brunswick; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Québec City, Québec and either Bar Harbor or Portland, Maine.

The itineraries allow guests to fully immerse themselves in the destinations, each with its own distinct charm. Whether the dramatic cliffs and lavish estates in Bar Harbor and Newport, the cobbled streets and French shops within Québec City and the spectacular waterfalls just outside city limits, or Portland’s art district, known as the city’s secret treasure, the region boasts limitless character and history to explore.

“Crystal Symphony’s New England and Canada itineraries offer an ideal combination of quaint provincial communities and exciting urban attractions, rich maritime history and striking scenery during the fall – the region’s most beautiful time of the year,” says Bill Smith, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The ease of travel, Crystal’s award-winning resort experience and our exceptional value for 2010 is resonating with veteran and new-to-Crystal travelers.”

Per person, Two-for-One (double occupancy) promotional fares start at $4,275, with $500 per person ‘All Inclusive – As You Wish’ shipboard credits, and complimentary air transportation from many North American gateways.

Crystal Cruises has earned the hospitality industry’s most coveted awards, including being voted World’s Best Large Cruise Line by the readers of Travel + Leisure and Best Large-Ship Cruise Line by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine more than any other cruise line, hotel or resort in history. Additionally, the latter publication’s readers voted Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony the ‘Best Medium-Sized Ships in the World’ in its February 2010 issue.
