Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 5 January 2012

Crystal Cruises has launched its entire 2013 calendar and fares, with all cruises now open for bookings.

Special Book Now fares offer travellers the best prices for early bookings made by 28 February or 30 June 2012, depending on cruise departure.

Significant changes in 2013, such as more shorter sailings, distinguish Crystals repertoire of 64 itineraries visiting 62 countries and 226 ports-of-call worldwide.

Also, due to the popularity of its Northern Europe itineraries in 2012, Crystal has opted to switch its initially scheduled vessel deployment: Crystal Serenity will summer in the Baltic, North Cape and British Isles (in addition to spring and summer in the Mediterranean), while Crystal Symphony will devote her summer to the Mediterranean.

In all, Crystal Symphony kicks off 2013 with a New Years fireworks gala in Sydney, then remains in the region, exploring Australia, New Zealand and Asia prior to a European/Mediterranean-focused summer, North American fall, and Central/South American/Antarctic holiday season ending in Chile.

Crystal Serenitys 2013 routing begins in the Caribbean before heading to a South American World Cruise, then Europe for most of the year before returning to the Caribbean/Central America for the holidays.

Early bookings offer maximum savings on 2013 itineraries, including:

- US$4,000/person full World Cruise savings
- US$700 or US$1,000/person savings for 7 to 24-day sailings
- Save Now, Save Later 20% savings on 2014s World Cruise for booking the 2013 World Cruise (or segments thereof)
