LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury cruise specialist Crystal

Cruises is offering up to 20% additional savings, representing up to $500 per

person, on select spring itineraries to the Mediterranean and Alaska when

travel is booked by January 31, 2005. In addition to the limited time offer,

savvy consumers will appreciate the tremendous value inherent in purchasing a

luxury cruise and its accompanying land tours in U.S. dollars due to the high


Offered in addition to specially priced fares already earmarked for these

voyages, the savings vary depending on the sailing date and range from 10-20%.

The promotion is available for all new bookings made on any of five different

cruises from April through June, including four Mediterranean departures

aboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, and one Alaska journey aboard

Crystal Harmony.

"Right now, given the high cost of the Euro against the dollar combined

with our early booking promotion, a cruise vacation purchased in U.S. dollars

represents incredible value. Sophisticated travelers have a great opportunity

to enjoy Crystal's destination expertise, rich itineraries with longer port

calls and award-winning service at significant savings," says Bill Smith,

Crystal's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Further, springtime

in Europe and early summer in Alaska are perfect times to visit these

incredibly popular destinations, as they are blessed with ideal weather and

the peak summer travel rush has not yet begun."

New 7-day Mediterranean

Crystal has added three new seven-day itineraries to its Mediterranean

season appealing to travelers who seek shorter escapes, but still want all the

luxury and exquisite service of a Crystal vacation. The new itineraries are

port-intensive and showcase the surprising secrets of the Mediterranean in

spring -- such as the spectacular sight of Rome's Spanish Steps blanketed in

pink azaleas. Each features at least one overnight stay in treasured

destinations such as Venice and Sorrento.

* May 9-16, 2005 (7 days); aboard Crystal Serenity from Rome to Venice

(overnight); visiting Florence/Livorno and Sorrento, Italy; Corsica,

France; and Split, Croatia. With the new 15% savings promotion, fares

promotion, fares begin at $2,317.
