Luxury Line Unveils Savings, Inclusive Perks and Expanded Shore Excursions
LOS ANGELES, May 28, 2015 – As luxury cruise leader Crystal Cruises sails into a new era of expansion, the line is enticing its valued guests – and those who have yet to sail with the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line – to book an acclaimed Crystal voyage now. In addition to the line’s June 30 “Book Now” deadline, which offers travelers thousands in savings for bookings made by that date, Crystal is sweetening the deal with newly added value propositions in 2017.
“Whether one is trying Crystal for the first time or wants to extend their travels even more, there are special offers available that make Crystal the best value for them, in addition to providing the very best luxury vacation experience at sea and land,” says Crystal’s President and CEO, Edie Rodriguez.
Travelers who book a verandah stateroom or above on four select Crystal Serenity voyages from the 2017 South America collection can extend their Crystal vacation with special land expeditions to Machu Picchu or Iguazu Falls.
- Machu Picchu Inclusive Extended Land Program – The three-night exploration of Machu Picchu is offered post-cruise on the January 22 sailing from Colon to Valparaiso and/or pre-cruise for the following voyage from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires on February 8. Luxury land accommodations and all other details are arranged by Crystal’s expert team.
- Iguazu Falls Inclusive Extended Land Program – The two-night expedition tours the famed cascading waterfalls from, both, the Argentinean and Brazilian sides. The complimentary experience includes all luxury accommodations and details, and is available pre-cruise with the March 3 sailing from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro and post-cruise with the March 12 voyage departing Rio de Janeiro for Buenos Aires.
In addition to enriching land experience incentives, Crystal is introducing savings for new-to-Crystal guests –up to $4,585 per person for a 2017 Full World Cruise. Combined with the line’s “Book Now” savings, first-time Crystal guests can save big on select 2017 voyages in Asia, Australia/South Pacific, South America, South Africa and the Caribbean.
Crystal’s all-inclusive luxury voyages start at $1,485 per person if booked by the June 30 “Book Now” deadline.
Crystal Cruises is the world’s most awarded leading luxury cruise provider, having earned more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history. Crystal Cruises has won “World’s Best Cruise Ship” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader Choice Awards for 21 years; voted “World’s Best Large Ship Cruise Line” by Travel + Leisure readers for 19-consecutive years; the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso; and both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity were rated as two of the “Top 5 mid-size ships” by the 2015 Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships.
