Travelers enter the Crystal Society program after their cruise. In addition to the new enhancements, members receive:

  • 2.5 percent Crystal Society Savings on all worldwide voyages
  • Exclusive 2.5 percent onboard booking savings
  • Hosted cocktail parties on every voyage following the members’ first voyage
  • Complimentary upgrades
  • Milestone recognition and commemorative pins at various levels
  • Exclusive onboard events on select sailings.

Former free cruise awards will be converted to equivalent Crystal Society Cruise Credits, earned at the same levels as before and following milestones of 25, 50, 70, 100, 125 and 150 cruises. If members currently have a free cruise reward that they have yet to redeem and do not wish to use the new equivalent Crystal Society Cruise Credit that goes into effect on September 1, they must book their cruise no later than December 31, 2019 and must sail before December 31, 2020.

In other Crystal news, the company recently outlined its marketing strategy at the 2019 Crystal Sales Gala in Europe. The event took place on Crystal Serenity's Barcelona-to-Dover, U.K., voyage.
