Last Minute Christmas Getaway? How about a Crystal Cruise to Hawaii?

I have a client who’s asked me to find a last minute getaway for Christmas and New Year’s.  Tough ticket to fill for a larger family these days, especially with supply and demand pricing on air, and very limited availability at the higher-end hotels. But, Crystal Cruise has some space on their Dec.21.11 sailing of the Crystal Symphony out of LA to Hawaii. Crystal offers 15 nights Pacific Coast Roundtrip Los Angeles offers 15 nights onboard a luxury cruise liner at a 2-for-1 cruise price.

The cruise normally prices out at $14,100 USD per person (based on double occupancy), and now is selling at $7050 USD.  Add your port fees of $465, and you’re pretty  much done. Crystal includes air from Montreal (on request at this late date, so if for some reason we can’t arrange through their air sea department, the clients will get a credit so we can arrange independently). So, for $7515 per person, the clients get a picture window view of Hawaii for 2 weeks of white glove service that includes their air, cruising, fantastic dining (and alcohol), fees and taxes.

Yes, Crystal offers all-inclusive cruising, save shore excursions (and stuff like spa treatments). But, good news – there is even a $500/person onboard credit to help with that. Plus, Vision 2000 is a Virtuoso partner, and all Crystal cruises have a Virtuoso amenity – just something a little extra for the Virtuoso traveller, that you can only get by booking through a Virtuoso travel advisor like myself. This sailing is a Virtuoso Voyageur Club sailing, so there’ll be an onboard host and welcome reception, as well as a choice with another onboard credit, a specially selected escorted shore excursions, or a credit towards a privately arranged excursion.

The Symphony leaves LA on the 21st and sails to Lahaina, Honolulu, Nawiliwili, Hilo, Ensenda, and back to LA.
