Crystal wave offers incentivize combo ocean, yacht, river bookings
Crystal Cruises introduced 'Crystal Exclusive Journeys' to incentivize travelers to combine their experiences on the line’s ocean ships, newly introduced yacht and the five upcoming river vessels.

Those who book Crystal’s river yachts—set for embarkation in 2016 and 2017—by the Feb. 29, 2016, 'Book Now' deadline get extra savings on sailings aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, and the yacht Crystal Esprit. For instance, travelers booking the Oct. 3, 2017, seven-day river cruise round-trip from Bordeaux through France’s wine country aboard Crystal Ravel can continue their journey aboard Crystal Symphony’s 11-day, Oct. 10 sailing round-trip from Lisbon with 15% savings.

Those who book the 14-day, July 2, 2017, cruise along the Rhine River from Frankfurt to Amsterdam aboard Crystal Bach also save 20% on Crystal Esprit’s weeklong July 16 sailing from Athens to Dubrovnik.

Plus, Crystal is treating travel agents who sell three staterooms to returning travelers or two staterooms to first-time Crystal customers on any segment of the 2017 'Southern Celebración' world cruise through South America to a free voyage for two in a deluxe stateroom with veranda. Agents selling six staterooms on the 2017 world cruise segments will get a free voyage for two in penthouse accommodations.

In addition to the 'Exclusive Journeys,' Crystal is offering added value and savings with fares for Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity starting at $1,845 per person for bookings made by the Feb. 29 'Book Now' deadline. For select 2016 sailings to Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Pacific Coast, Alaska, Antarctica, Asia, South America, Mediterranean, British Isles, Baltic/North Cape, Caribbean and New England/Canada travelers can get savings in all accommodations categories, as much as $5,435 per person.

Other offers include free third berths and perks for large groups and those traveling with kids through the 'Crystal Memories' program, reduced single supplements for solo cruisers (including on Crystal Yacht Cruises), low fares for abbreviated 'Crystal Getaways,' additional savings on 'Explorer Combination Cruises' and a 2.5% incentive for those who pay in full six months in advance.
