Crystal’s New Standby Fares Mean Huge Savings For Last-Minute Ultra-Luxury Cruisers
16/04/2011 Leave a comment
Crystal Cruises is announcing a rare “Standby” program allowing last-minute travellers to sail the ultra-luxury line at up to 75% off brochure fares on five May to June sailings to Alaska, the Baltic and North Cape. Greatly reduced tiered pricing offers fares as low as £2,264 per person for a 12-night cruise.
Standby fares are based on availability, require a £325 per guest deposit upon reservation, and will be confirmed on a “first requested, first confirmed” basis no earlier than 45 days prior to departure.
Eligible departures include:
- 12-night Alaska cruises round-trip from San Francisco with departures on 9th and 21st May and 2nd June
- 11-night Scandinavia/Russia sailing from Hamburg to Stockholm departing on 22nd May
- 14-night North Cape/Arctic Circle voyage from Copenhagen to Stockholm departing on 13th June
Standby fares on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity are for new bookings as of today and do not include flights, port taxes or “All Inclusive – As You Wish” spending credits. Fares quoted are per person, based on double occupancy accommodations and other restrictions apply. Final payment is due within three days of confirmation.
“We haven’t offered anything like this in almost a decade,” says Philip Ordever, Crystal’s Vice President International Sales & Marketing. “There is no doubt that travellers who make their decisions early are rewarded with early confirmation, a greater choice of accommodations and value-added spending credits. However, there are people making travel decisions closer in, and this is an extraordinary opportunity for luxury travellers who just can’t plan their holidays that far in advance.”
Crystal Cruises’ resort experience always includes a host of complimentary amenities, from enlightening enrichment workshops to pampering pillow menus and specialty dining featuring the cuisine of Nobu Matsuhisa and Piero Selvaggio. The company’s passion for taking care of guests in an inviting environment of extraordinary space, quality and choices has earned Crystal more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, resort, or hotel in history.
