Crystal Cruises have announced that for greater convenience, simplicity and comfort, they will be changing to “All Inclusive”, which is very good news and particularly beneficial to families, groups and singles.

What does this mean?  Crystal will offer complimentary unlimited fine wines, premium spirits, beers and sparkling wines throughout the ship; open bar service in all lounges, and pre-paid gratuities for housekeeping, bar and dining staff. The pre-paid gratuity amenity includes Penthouse butler service as well as service in all speciality restaurants and sushi bar.

All Inclusive will begin with the first 2012 Trans-Atlantic cruise of each ship: Crystal Symphony’s voyage 2207 on 19 March 2012 from Miami to Lisbon and Crystal Serenity’s voyage 2308 on 8 May 2012 from New York to Dover.

Guests can still receive shipboard spending credits, such as gifts from individuals, from their travel agents or with select promotions that can be used for the spa, beauty salon, shore excursions, retail merchandise, Internet, wines and spirits from the Connoisseurs’ List, photo shop, Vintage Room experiences and dry cleaning services.

Please call Deluxe Cruises for more information.
