Crystal Cruises is known for their luxury cruise vacations, quality service and choice destinations earning more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, resort, or hotel in history. Now, Crystal is inviting those who have not experienced the Crystal version of a cruise vacation to come along on their choice of 12 new, short Mediterranean itineraries sailing from July through December 2012.
“Many savvy travelers appreciate the pampering luxury ofand know how amazing the Mediterranean is as a destination, yet may have very limited time to get away,” says Jack Anderson, Crystal’s senior vice president, sales and marketing. “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 “Crystal Getaways” sale showcases southern Europe for as little as $262 per day for Crystal’s “World’s Best” luxury resort experience. All-inclusive, five- to eight-day vacations on the award-winning Crystal Serenity start at just $1,310 per person for sumptuous accommodations, gourmet dining (including Nobu Matsuhisa cuisine), fine wine, premium spirits, gratuities, fitness classes, inspirational enrichment activities, and the easiest of travel between such jewels as Tuscany, the Greek Isles, the French Riviera, Morocco, Rome, Turkey, and Israel.
