Crystal Cruises Sets New Oct. 31 Deadline for "Book Now" Fares

Crystal Cruises recorded its highest ever August booking week and month in its history. With the expiration of its Aug. 31 “Book Now” fares, travel agents booked more than 110 percent more revenue than any prior year during the same week and for the entire month of August.

Effective Sept. 1, Crystal has launched a new “Book Now” deadline of Oct. 31, 2012 for its worldwide lineup of 2012, 2013 and early 2014 cruises. While the new series of “Book Now” fares offer bonus savings of as much as $3000 per person, the line has also increased fares for 29 cruises – representing a record number of increases in any “Book Now” period.
