Crystal Introduces Crystal Confidence 2.0 For New Bookings
The new Crystal Confidence 2.0 allows travelers 90 days from the time of booking to place their deposit on new 2020-2023 reservations on Crystal Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Yacht Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises. In addition, the company is relaxing final payment deadlines for all its current savings programs.
“We understand that many travelers are eager to begin planning vacations and exploring the world again but may be hesitant to make commitments of travel time and resources during this challenging period,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales.
“The expanded window for deposits and relaxed final payment schedules offer them an opportunity to look forward to future journeys and book their dream vacations with ease.”
The 90-day extended commitment window for deposits can be combined with other booking policies available which includes:
