New Promo Sweetens Family Value for 2010
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16 - Crystal Cruises invites kids 17 and under to cruise for free on two Crystal Symphony European voyages this summer.

- August 7, Copenhagen to Stockholm - The "Russian Inspiration" voyage visits Copenhagen, Denmark; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia (two nights); and Stockholm, Sweden.
Junior Activities Directors will be on board to oversee dozens of organized activities from arts and crafts and story time for little ones to disco-themed pool parties for older kids and teenagers. As with all summer and holiday cruises, Crystal's Northern European summer voyages also feature destination-related enrichment for junior cruisers, like "dress-up" photo sessions in traditional Russian costumes, or scavenger hunts promoting fun facts about Stockholm.
Crystal's purpose-built Fantasia and Waves children's and teens' facilities - rare in luxury cruising - also feature events and top video games and toys.
Also ideal for families, Crystal's Family Memories program offers two savings options: $500 credit toward a Crystal Private Adventure, kids under 17 sail free in third berth, plus other perks for six full-fare bookings; all of this, plus one complimentary berth for 10 full-fare bookings.

"Combined with our collection of 2010 promotions, this offer makes an already tremendous value even sweeter for families."
