Crystal Cruises has a new collection of “Crystal Getaways” – Five- to 11-day segments that pack a tremendous amount of luxury punch into convenient, shorter itineraries. The luxe line is expanding its offerings to cruises worldwide, including options in Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Canada, Alaska and New England, USA. Each shorter segment features at least one overnight stay in some of the regions’ most popular ports.
“The new Crystal cruisers are often travelers with busy schedules who cannot take longer vacations, travelers who have moved up to luxury to celebrate a meaningful occasion, or travelers who wanted to combine Getaways with their own land programs,” says Jack Anderson, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “What has been gratifying and consistent is the high level of rebooking from these new Crystal converts. We know that travelers who try a Crystal cruise are strongly inclined to come back for more.”
