Crystal Cruises has announced a variety of new savings
promotions for 2007 and 2008. The offers and insider tips, as well
as complimentary services and amenities, provide special value for
travelers seeking luxury vacations.
Guests can save up to 48 percent on six late August and fall 11-
and 12-day Mediterranean voyages aboard Crystal Serenity. Cruises
depart from Venice, Monte Carlo, Athens, Istanbul and Rome. Fares
start at $3,890.
For 2007 Thanksgiving voyages, kids sail free and cruisers can
save up to an additional $1,000 per couple.
The November specials allow travelers to save $500 per person in
most stateroom categories, including verandahs, on voyages through
the Panama Canal and Caribbean aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal
Kids aged 11 and under will sail free when sharing a stateroom
with two full-fare adults. Crystal Serenity has also increased its
third berth capacity by 15 percent, offering more choices for
families. With the new promotion and special savings fares, guests
can save up to 60 percent off brochure fares, which start at
$2,195. And, as always, Crystal’s family-friendly activities and
supervised junior activities beckon to families.
Savings of up to 52 percent can also be had with Value
Collection sailings. Crystal’s 2008 Value Collection features 11
sailings of 10 to 17 days through the Panama Canal, South America,
the Mediterranean, Western Europe, Caribbean and a Trans-Pacific
voyage from Los Angeles to Hong Kong.
For new bookings made before Sept. 14, guests can save 20
percent on all deluxe stateroom accommodations, including verandah
staterooms, and 10 percent on all penthouse accommodations aboard
Crystal Symphony’s 13-day Western European voyage departing May 25
from Athens to London. Fares start at $3,995.
Those seeking a longer vacation can combine Crystal Symphony’s
May 25 Athens to London cruise with the cruise prior or following
and save 20 percent on all categories of staterooms and suites for
new bookings made before Sept. 14 when doing so. The combination
cruises offer guests a 27-day exploration of Egypt, the
Mediterranean and Western Europe, or a 24-day journey from Greece
to the Baltic Sea. Clients could also opt to combine all three for
a 38-day cruise and receive total savings of $3,840 per person.
Other saving strategies include onboard booking savings of 4 to
4½ percent for guests booking a future cruise while onboard; a
discount of 3½ percent when paying in full six months in advance; a
special singles fare at 125 percent of the applicable double
occupancy fare; and additional discounts as a Crystal Society
