Crystal Kicks Off "Grand Challenge” With $450,000 in Awards for Advisors

Crystal is celebrating its return to the seas by launching the 2024 “Crystal Grand Challenge.” With $450,000 in awards, this contest is designed to reward top travel advisors and welcome newcomers to the world of Crystal.

The challenge extends an invitation to travel advisors in the United States and Canada to participate in one of two races: the Crystal Sprint Race and the long-distance Crystal Ocean Race. Travel advisors who have booked a Crystal sailing since its relaunch are eligible to enter the Crystal Sprint Race for a chance to win the top prize of $150,000. The first prize will be awarded to the travel advisor who books 15 cruises for this year by May 31, 2024, with subsequent prizes of $100,000 and $50,000 for two runners-up.

For travel advisors who have not yet booked a cruise aboard the newly restyled Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, the line welcomes them to enter the Crystal Ocean Race. The first travel advisor to make 10 bookings for 2024 by December 16, 2024, will win the first prize of $75,000, with subsequent prizes of $50,000 and $25,000 for two runners-up.

“The 2024 'Crystal Grand Challenge' stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and our enduring partnership with travel advisors, both seasoned and newcomers alike,” said Marett Taylor, chief sales officer of A&K Travel Group, owner of Crystal. “This challenge celebrates their invaluable contributions and reinforces our dedication to providing unparalleled experiences for our discerning guests. We eagerly anticipate witnessing the remarkable achievements of travel advisors as they embark on this exciting journey this year.”
