Low Business Class Air Upgrade Provides More Value and Luxury With All Crystal Cruises’ European Cruises

Approximately 50% Lower Than Unrestricted Business Class Airfares to Europe

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ — While spring and summer 2006 air bargains to Europe are hard to find, luxury cruise specialist Crystal Cruises is introducing reduced business class air upgrade fares with all 2006 European cruises booked by March 31, 2006. The special business class air upgrade fares of $1,099 to $1,299 are one way and in addition to Crystal Cruises’ published coach class add-on fares. Available from selected major gateways in the U.S., the upgraded airfares are approximately 50% lower than unrestricted business class airfares to Europe.

The promotion is available with all of Crystal’s 2006 Mediterranean, Baltic, Northern Europe and Trans-Atlantic cruises — a total of 32 voyages between April 29 and November 15 aboard the ultra-luxurious Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. Cruises begin in Monte Carlo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Venice, Rome, Athens, London, Lisbon or Miami with fares starting at just $1,995, per person, double occupancy.

“By combining Crystal’s reduced business class air upgrade with the luxurious amenities and rich itineraries of a Crystal cruise, discriminating travelers to Europe can realize exceptional value,” says Bill Smith, Crystal’s senior vice president, sales and marketing.

The business class upgrade promotion is available at only $1,099 from the Northeast, $1,199 from the Central and Southeast, and $1,299 from the West, one way. The Northeastern gateways are New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
