The Top Ten Reasons to Take a Crystal Cruise


If you’ve been longing for a getaway, what better way to spend some much needed vacation time than on a cruise? Cruises truly offer the best deal for your money and allow you to be pampered the entire time. There is no better time than now to relax, revitalise, and exhilarate your senses. The following are the top ten reasons to take a Crystal Cruise:

  1. The Best of Small and Large Ship Cruising. A Crystal Cruise offers you a small ship atmosphere with fine dining and personal service paired with the enrichment and entertainment of a large ship – without all of the crowds.
  2. All Inclusive. Every voyage includes premium spirits, fine wines, and onboard gratuities throughout the ship, along with non-alcoholic beverages, and even a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream bar.
  3. Voyages from 5 to 129 Nights. There are many different options available, from work-friendly 7-night trips that begin and end on a weekend, to 10-night cruises, to those which run 10+ nights.
  4. Award-winning Cuisine 25 Years in the Making. Cruises are well known for their fine dining experiences and menu variety, and Crystal Cruises are no exception, with dining options including the Crystal Dining Room, Silk Road and the Sushi Bar, Prego, Tastes, the Vintage Room, the Bistro Coffee/Wine Bar, and even complimentary room service!
  5. Entertainment and Enrichment. A Crystal Cruise includes amenities such as a movie theatre, Broadway-style productions, piano bars, cabaret shows, music for dancing, and a variety of daytime activities. Classes in languages, piano, art, and wine tasting are available through their Computer University at Sea. Fantastic gyms and spas offer Pilates, yoga, “boot camp,”circuit training, and even gold and spinning lessons from professionals!
  6. Itineraries Available through 2019. With just two ships, Crystal Cruises cover the globe – from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, the Panama Canal to Alaska, and the South Pacific and Asia to Canada and New England. And in 2020, three brand new “Exclusive Class” ships will be delivered.
  7. Black Tie Optional. No ties are required, and an open-collared shirt and a jacket are perfectly acceptable on “black tie optional” evenings. Though many guests still choose to dress in formalwear, your style is completely up to you.
  8. Fares for Single Guests! While it is common for cruise lines to charge up to double the price for a single cruiser, these cruises start their single fares at just 25% for ocean view staterooms. Several voyages offer 10% for lead-in categories.
  9. Robust Kids Programme. With their critically acclaimed children’s activities and programmes, each Crystal Cruise is rated number one when it comes to a market for families.
  10. More Ways to Save. Book your trip an entire six months in advance to receive a 3.5% discount off your cruise fare, and after you’ve sailed once, you will receive a Crystal Society Discount on every subsequent Crystal Cruise!
