Cape Townâ€™s chic, contemporary Cape Grace Hotel is now available as a pre- or post-cruise â€œClassic Plusâ€ Hotel Program with Crystal Cruisesâ€™ ultra-luxury cruises to and from South Africa in the spring 2011. With â€œClassic Plus,â€ Crystal guests can enjoy five-star hotel accommodations before or after their cruise, private car transfers, meet and assist arrangements, porterage, full breakfast and other perks at destinations around the world.
Like Crystal Cruises, the Cape Grace Hotel has been named to CondÃ© Nast Travelerâ€™s prestigious Gold List numerous times and is renowned for its personalized service. The Cape Grace â€œClassic Plusâ€ Hotel Program is available for stays of one, two or three nights following Crystal Serenityâ€™s March 29 voyage from Mumbai to Cape Town, and before the April 17 cruise from Cape Town to London. Both cruises are segments of Crystal Cruises epic 2011 World Cruise. An alternative â€œClassicâ€ Hotel Program at the charming colonial Mount Nelson Hotel is also available.
â€œCrystalâ€™s hotel programs are designed to offer travelers a seamless vacation experience with a level of style, service, and luxury similar to their Crystal shipboard,â€ says John Stoll, Crystalâ€™s vice president, land and port operations. â€œThe programs also deliver a high degree of comfort, as guests know that Crystal is giving great attention to arrangements and details that ease travel in foreign destinations.â€
Situated in the heart of Cape Townâ€™s wharf area, the Cape Grace offers an ideal location for touring, dining, shopping and even luxury yacht charters. Besides its warm, attentive service, the luxury property features a full spa and bars and restaurants offering innovative menus complemented by premium local wine selections.
Guests can further extend the March 29 voyage from Mumbai to Cape Town with a three-night, pre-cruise land program visiting the Taj Mahal for a fraction of the valued fare. The April 17 itinerary from Cape Town to London focuses heavily on West Africaâ€™s heritage.
Rates for the Cape Grace â€œClassic Plusâ€ program begin at $550 per person, double occupancy, for the first night of stay, with reduced rates available for additional nights.
