Cruise News: Crystal Cruises Offers Solo Travelers A Break on European Voyages This Fall

Solo sailors have a tough time catching a break when booking a cruise, often paying nearly the equivalent of full fare for two passengers when they are sailing alone.

While Crystal Cruises already charges one of the lowest rates in the luxury cruise industry for sole occupancy of double occupancy accommodations, with a new solo travelers' sale on fall Mediterranean voyages, guests traveling alone can enjoy even lower fares to vacation in ease through one of the world's most beautiful cruising areas. A significantly-reduced solo supplement of just 10% can save individuals up to almost $900 off a private, deluxe outside stateroom (Category C) of their own.

The savings are offered on eight 11- and 12-day Crystal Serenity sailings through the Black Sea, Middle East, Canary Islands, and entire Mediterranean, starting with the Sept 6th voyage. The all-inclusive luxury cruises embark in Athens, Istanbul, Venice, Barcelona, and Lisbon from Sept through Nov, with overnight visits and more time in both smaller, off-the-beaten-path and favorite, large ports throughout Italy, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Montenegro, Israel, Croatia, Morocco and the Canary Islands. Attractive air add-ons are offered from more than 200 North American ports.

"A Crystal cruise is a wonderful option for solo travelers who seek luxury and pampering while on vacation and also the fast, easy friendships that are made on board," says Jack Anderson, senior vice president of marketing and sales. "This is an ideal opportunity for cruisers indulging in a room all to themselves to realize significant savings and value with the World's Best Cruise Line."

Among the exceptional care Crystal provides for solo travelers are Ambassador hosts on every sailing for single ladies seeking a dance partner, assigned seating for dinner in the Crystal Dining Room, and "Table for 8," which brings individuals together for friendly shared dining in the specialty restaurants at night. Crystal Cruises' ocean resort experience always includes fine wines, premium spirits, and gratuities with one's vacation, as well as a host of other complimentary amenities, from enlightening enrichment speakers and fitness classes to pampering pillow menus and specialty restaurant dining, featuring the world-renowned cuisine of Nobu Matsuhisa.
