Crystal's "Pink Sands and White Beaches" Voyage: New Low Fares For New York to Caribbean Cruise

As if Crystal Cruises' big fall sale wasn't already big enough, the ultraluxe cruise line has marked down its October 25 New York-Miami Caribbean cruise even further, with savings of up to 67% off brochure fares.  Fares for the 12-day sailing on Crystal Symphony now start at $2,995 per person, including $1000/couple "As You Wish" shipboard spending credits.

Crystal's "Pink Sands and White Beaches" voyage begins with a scenic sail-away from New York followed by visits to Bermuda; St. Maarten, Antigua, Aruba, and the Cayman Islands.  

Throughout, guests will be stimulated and enriched with an array of complimentary workshops and classes:
  • A "Digital Filmmaking" theme offers camera buffs hands-on tutelage in travel video production from Travel Channel Academy founders throughout the sailing.
  • News junkies will relish insights from Shelby Coffee, formerly editor of the L.A. Times, president of CNN Business News and executive vice president of ABC News.  
  • Veteran U.S. State Dept Senior Foreign Service Officer, Robert Warne will enthrall world affairs enthusiasts with his vast experience in international economics
  • Animal lovers can help care for stray donkeys via Crystal's gratis "You Care, We Care" voluntourism excursion in Antigua.
"This unique Crystal departure from New York was designed with an appealing balance of sea and port days – the perfect resort from which to enjoy inspiring enrichment, complimentary classes, a spacious spa, exquisite dining, and non-stop fitness opportunities," says Nitsa Lewis, vice president, marketing.  "One's vacation can be as stimulating or relaxing as one prefers, while newly reduced fares make this an extraordinary value."

Availability is limited; special fares are capacity controlled and subject to change.
