‘Best Available’ Stateroom fares from $1399 per person offering up to 80 percent savings on all-inclusive luxury voyages to the Caribbean this fall
MIAMI, June 19, 2020 – Crystal Cruises has added five additional Caribbean sailings to its enticing new Simply the Best program. Previously scheduled November and December 2020 Crystal Serenity sailings to the Caribbean are now eligible for Crystal’s new offer of up to 80 percent savings on the best stateroom or suite available at the time of booking, as well as $250 or more of As You Wish shipboard credit per stateroom or suite (based on double occupancy); reduced deposits of just $100 per guest; low Solo Fares from 125 percent; children under 18 sail from $199 as third guests; and 10 percent cruise fare savings available on select sailings when guests choose the combined 14-night itinerary.
Crystal’s Simply the Best sailings rangefrom seven to 11-nights, with many seven-night itineraries combinable for an incredible 14-night journey through the Caribbean without repeating ports.
The newly added Simply the Best sailings aboard Crystal Serenity include:
Tropical Island Tapestry, Miami Roundtrip, nine nights embarking November 12 calling in Cozumel, Mexico; Costa Maya, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; George Town, Grand Cayman and Key West, Florida.
Caribbean Chic, Miami Roundtrip, 11 nights embarking November 21 calling in St. Kitts-Basseterre, St. Kitts; Castries, St. Lucia; Bridgetown, Barbados; Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe; Gustavia, St. Barts; and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Caribbean Kaleidoscope, San Juan to Miami, seven nights embarking December 16 calling in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten (overnight); Gustavia, St. Barts; St. John’s, Antigua; and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Cruise fares for Simply the Best sailings begin at just $1,399 per guest for Crystal award-winning all-inclusive luxury experience. Travelers with Future Cruise Credits may redeem them on these cruises.
Added peace of mind for guests looking forward to traveling again comes in part from programs like Crystal Confidence, which offers reduced deposits of just $100 for Ocean voyages; relaxed 60-day prior to first service final payment; and adjusted cancellation policy allowing guests to cancel up to seven days prior to sailing and receive 100 percent Future Cruise Credit, valid through 2022. Guests booking Crystal’s Simply The Best fall 2020 Caribbean sailings will have an additional layer of voyage protection with the new Crystal Voyage Assurance program extended to these new Crystal Serenity voyages, which allows travelers to cancel their cruise for a full refund within seven days if there is a significant itinerary change – including the embarkation or disembarkation ports and/or changes to 30 percent or more of their selected itinerary – due to global travel restrictions.
By deliberate design, Crystal Serenity has always carried far fewer guests than ships of similar size – featuring one of the highest space ratios in luxury cruising – and her social spaciousness will be further increased with a commitment to lower guest capacity when she resumes sailing this fall. In addition, while the fleet is paused, the Crystal team is developing new procedures and policies that will support all public health and regulatory requirements and ensure that guests’ vacations continue to be not only relaxing and pleasurable but safe and healthy. Details of these new measures and initiatives will be announced soon.
The inherent design of Crystal ships maximizes personal and public space, offering plenty of options for those who choose to keep a healthy distance during their voyage. All Crystal ships across the fleet including Ocean, River, Yacht and Expedition offer nearly double the space per person than ships of a similar size, which is among the highest space ratios in the industry and their social spaciousness will be further augmented through the new measures we will be implementing. Further, Crystal Endeavor and Crystal’s River ships are all-suite and all-balcony and most staterooms on Ocean ships Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity feature private verandas for fresh airflow.
The safety of guests and crew members is Crystal’s number one 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.
