There’s still time to take advantage of some of this year’s Wave Season offers.
Based on the popularity of its Crystal Clear Choices promotion, Crystal Cruises has added more than a dozen 2018 sailings aboard the Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity, Crystal Esprit and Crystal Mozart to its roster of voyages included in this year’s Wave Season promotion, which is available now through March 31, 2017. Crystal Clear Choices features three added-value offers, including cruise fare savings of up to $1,000 pp, air credit of up to $1,100 pp, or shipboard credit of up to $1,250 pp, which can be used towards spa treatments, onshore Crystal Adventures or exclusive dinners. This promotion is available on all of Crystal’s ocean, river and yacht voyages, so all that’s left is for your client to decide whether they want to sail to Southeast Asia, India and Western Europe aboard the Crystal Serenity; Australia, South Pacific, Panama Canal and Caribbean aboard Crystal Symphony; or Seychelles on the Crystal Esprit.
An air credit option is only available on bookings made through Crystal AirSea Program, which offers flight arrangements through more than 180 airports and major hubs in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, call (888) 799-2437 or visit crystalcruises.com.
To celebrate Wave Season, MSC Cruises is enhancing its 2-for-1 Caribbean and Europe offers, in which guests save 50 percent off brochure rates, by introducing reduced deposits of $49 pp with kids 11 and under sailing free on select itineraries. Caribbean and Mediterranean sailings available for booking as part of the 2-for-1 deal include the MSC Divina’s April 29, 2017 departure from Miami, Florida with stops in Philipsburg, St. Maarten; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Nassau, Bahamas. Rates start at $349 pp.
In addition, MSC Cruises is celebrating the future arrival of the MSC Seaside in Miami by offering complimentary shipboard credit, complimentary WiFi and complimentary mealtime drinks on the MSC Seaside depending on the category of stateroom booked ($350 value). Guests can also take advantage of the $49 pp deposit. Rates start at $539 pp.
Plus, beginning this December, MSC Divina will begin offering 10- and 11-night itineraries in the Caribbean, visiting popular destinations such as Belize, Colombia and Panama. With MSC Cruises’ new EZ Groups program, travel agents are already able to choose from a list of amenities to add extra perks to their group for their clients or themselves. To celebrate the cruise line’s extended itineraries in the Caribbean, MSC Cruises is offering agents Double Group Amenity Points–or the option for a free motor coach service to PortMiami from multiple West or Central Florida locations–when they block their EZ Groups on MSC Divina’s 10- and 11-night Caribbean itineraries. Travel agents will also be able to take advantage of the Free Florida Motor Coach with FIT bookings. These offers expire March 31, 2017. For more information, call (877) 665-4655 or visit msccruisesusa.com.
