MIAMI, October 29, 2020 – Today, Crystal is expanding its Crystal Confidence 2.0 program extending its relaxed cancellation terms and final payment deadline to 60 days prior to first date of service for all new and existing bookings on voyages in March, April, May and June 2021. In addition, guests sailing on voyages departing March 26 through June 30, 2021 can now enjoy Crystal’s 2.5 percent early final payment savings up to 90 days prior to their first date of service.
These new policies augment the recently announced extension of the no-money-down deposit window until January 5, 2021 for new and existing bookings and subject to change at any time. Crystal Confidence 2.0* is combinable with the company’s Easy Book program, which offers reduced deposits of just 15 percent (normally 25 percent) and waived admin fees**. Bookings must be made by January 6, 2021.The Crystal Confidence 2.0 and Easy Book programs apply to all 2021-2024 sailings aboard Crystal’s fleet of luxury travel experiences, including Crystal Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Yacht Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises.
Travelers have three full years of global itineraries from which to choose across all Crystal Experiences, as the complete 2023 deployment for Crystal Cruises is open for booking as well as Crystal Yacht Cruises deployment through early 2024; 2021-2022 deployment for Crystal River Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises are also available for booking.
Crystal developed the new policy updates in response to the current environment as the global Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact when and where cruising can resume. The safety of guests and crew members is Crystal’s utmost priority and the fleet will resume service only when the company’s expert team and global health and government authorities indicate that it is safe to do so. Crystal has suspended all voyages across its fleet for the remainder of 2020, and introduced Crystal Clean+ – an evolving, enhanced version of Crystal’s already stringent protocols. The policies were developed with the latest data available from health experts and will be updated as new information and guidelines become available.
*Certain promotions including but not limited to Advance Purchase Savings are not combinable with certain Crystal Confidence 2.0 elements. Waived Admin Fees do not apply to Advance Purchase Savings.
**Waived Admin Fee only applicable to new bookings made under Crystal’s Easy Book – All other bookings default to standard Admin Fees.
