Crystal Cruises is updating its “Crystal Confidence 2.0” program to extend the no-money-down deposit window until January 5, 2021 for new and existing bookings. “Crystal Confidence 2.0” is combinable with the company’s “Easy Book” program, which offers reduced deposits of just 15 percent (normally 25 percent) and waived admin fees. For departures through the end of April 2021, final payment has been relaxed to 60-days prior to first date of service.

The “Crystal Confidence 2.0” and “Easy Book” programs apply to all sailings from 2021 to 2024 aboard Crystal’s fleet of travel experiences, including Crystal Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Yacht Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises. 

Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales, Carmen Roig said in a press statement that the cruise line was to be sensitive to those guests who are still cautious when it comes to planning future travels. “Flexibility and peace of mind are a luxury that travelers want the most right now,” she added.

Travelers have three-plus years of global itineraries from which to choose across all Crystal Experiences, as the complete 2023 deployment for Crystal Cruises is open for booking, as well as Crystal Yacht Cruises deployment through early 2024. Deployment in 2021-2022 for Crystal River Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises is also available for booking. 

Crystal developed the new policy updates in response to the current environment as the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect when and where cruising can resume. The safety of guests and crew members is Crystal’s utmost priority, it says, and the fleet will resume service only when the company’s team and global health and government authorities indicate that it is safe to do so. Crystal has suspended all voyages across its fleet for the remainder of 2020, and introduced “Crystal Clean+,” an evolving version of Crystal’s already stringent protocols. The policies were developed with the latest data available from health experts and will be updated as new information and guidelines become available.
