Crystal relaxes booking policies for all 2021 itineraries

MIAMI — After temporarily relaxing its booking policies to accommodate passengers during the pandemic, Crystal has announced that it is now extending the policies to all 2021 voyages across its luxury fleet.

For 2021 sailings with Crystal Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Yacht Cruises and Crystal Expedition Cruises, the adjusted Crystal Confidence 3.0 policies relax the final payment deadline to 60 days prior to first date of service, while guests who pay in full 90 days prior to first date of service will save an additional 2.5% off their cruise fare. The early final payment savings deadline is normally six months.

In addition, guests sailing in 2021 may cancel their booking with no penalty up to 60 days prior to their first date of service.

These policies were previously implemented for voyages through June 2021 only.

Crystal’s 2021 cancellation schedule is as follows:

  • 60-31 days: 25% penalty
  • 30-8 days: 50% penalty
  • 7 days or less: 100% penalty

For all Crystal voyages in 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024, Crystal will continue to offer reduced deposits of just 15% (normally 25%) and waived administration fees for all new bookings through the company’s Easy Book program.

Moreover, Crystal’s No-Money-Down deposit window has been extended through Feb. 22, 2021 for all new and existing bookings for 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 Crystal Ocean, River, Yacht and Expedition voyages. The No-Money-Down deposit window has been extended for this transitionary time as the company looks ahead to resuming service in late spring 2021, following its voluntary suspension of voyages through April.
