Rendering of the forthcoming Crystal River Cruises vessels

A range of perks and bonuses available to groups travelling with Crystal Cruises on its ocean ships are now available on the line’s recently launched luxury yacht and its forthcoming fleet of river cruise vessels.

Known as the Crystal Memories Program, the additional benefits are provided to groups of different sizes depending on the ship, with a minimum of ten passengers required on an ocean voyage to avail the offers and six on a river or yacht sailing.

Groups meeting this mandated minimum of six passengers (two per stateroom) will receive US$125 per person in onboard credit (which can be difficult to spend as practically everything is included anyway), free fare for every third berth, US$500 credit towards a pre or post-cruise Crystal Private Adventure worth $2,500 or more and a private transfer to or from the ship for the group at either end of the voyage. Groups partaking in back-to-back voyages will see benefits replicated for each segment.

Crystal Esprit, the company’s first luxury yacht was launched late last year in the Seychelles, while the first river cruise vessel – the acquired and refitted Crystal Mozart – will start service in July, followed by four more newly built river craft – Crystal Bach, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Mahler, and Crystal Ravel – around a year later.

For ocean voyages, these include one free cabin for every ten booked, US$200 onboard credit per person, one 8×10 professional photograph per sailing and US$500 credit towards a Crystal Private Adventure. Perks multiply for each successive voyage taken by the group.

The newly expanded Crystal Memories group perks are valid on all sailings currently on sale and departing in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
