Crystal’s Crystal Endeavor recently-announced Luxury Iceland Expeditions circumnavigating Iceland and crossing the Arctic Circle opened for reservations on April 13 to great enthusiasm, the company says.
Within 24 hours of opening the five 10-night itineraries, the sailings booked to over 50 percent of capacity, Crystal said.
“We are thrilled with the response to Crystal Endeavor’s inaugural sailings in Iceland as it is clear that luxury travellers, and returning Crystal Society members in particular, are looking forward to traveling again and reconnecting with their onboard Crystal family on our newest, most innovative ship to date,” said Jack Anderson, Crystal’s interim president and CEO. “Crystal Endeavor signifies an entirely new chapter in Crystal’s long history of delivering unforgettable journeys and giving travellers distinctive ways to see the world in the embrace of the Crystal brand."
Crystal Endeavor’s booking response comes one month after the recently-announced Luxury Bahamas Escapes on Crystal Serenity generated Crystal’s highest booking day in its 30-year history.
The Luxury Iceland Expeditions begin on July 17 with five consecutive journeys round-trip from Reykjavík.
The voyages highlight the region’s breathtaking coastlines and wildlife havens, massive glaciers and countless waterfalls, quaint villages and fascinating heritage of Iceland’s towns and islands.
Guests can book the Luxury Iceland Expeditions with savings, reduced deposits and an extended final payment date to 60 days prior to first date of service, as well as other incentives.
Cruise fares start at $13,999 per guest, including double Book Now Savings at $3,000 for a limited time only.
Guests will receive a $300 per person As You Wish shipboard credit; Crystal Society Savings will double to five percent; new-to-Crystal guests will save 2.5 percent; and solo fares start at just 150 percent.
Travellers with Future Cruise Credits and Future Cruise Payments may redeem them on these sailings.
Guests wishing to extend their explorations in Iceland can select one-, two- or three-night hotel programs at Reykjavík’s luxurious Hotel Borg, starting at $499 per person.
Air options are available from many major U.S. and European cities, as Iceland’s capital city is just six hours from New York City and three hours from London.
