Crystal Cruises Announces New Short Cruises

Crystal Cruises, a US-based cruise company, is offering special sale deals for its new voyages.

The company is offering 12 new Mediterranean itineraries, as part of its Crystal Getaways sale. The sale is running until June 30, 2012, for sailings that will operate from July to December 2012.

All-inclusive, five to eight-day vacations on the Crystal Serenity commence at £850 per person, including accommodation, gourmet dining, fine spirits, gratuities, fitness lessons, and inspirational activities.

Jack Anderson, the company senior vice president of sales and marketing, said, ‘Many savvy travellers appreciate the pampering luxury of Crystal Cruises and know how amazing the Mediterranean is as a destination, yet may have very limited time to get away. At the same time, this sale conveniently enables those less familiar with cruising, or Crystal, to dip their toe into our Six-Star waters.’

The Mediterranean program is offering new itineraries, as well a 18 previously-scheduled seven to 12-day itineraries, for prices starting from £1,461 per person, based on double occupancy. The company is also offering round-trip airfare from around 90 North American cities as well as pre- and post-cruise stays at quality hotels in Lisbon, Rome, Barcelona, Venice, Istanbul, and Monte Carlo.

The company has earlier announced an expanded entertainment programme for its European voyages in 2012, including performances by celebrated local performers, showcasing their homelands’ culture and customs.

The cruises also include shore excursions, dining on celebrity cuisine, learning a new hobby at the innovative Creative Learning Institute, spa therapies, and many other pastimes for both entertainment and enlightenment.
