Crystal Cruises officially begins transition to “All Inclusive”

March 20, 2012

After a year of planning, Crystal Cruises has now officially begun its transition to an all-quality “All Inclusive”. Launched with the start of Crystal Symphony’s Miami to Lisbon Trans-Atlantic cruise today, guests can now enjoy a generous and impressive selection of complimentary fine wines and premium spirits throughout the ship, as well as open bar service in all lounges, and pre-paid gratuities for all housekeeping, butler, bar and dining staff. Crystal Serenity follows suit with her spring Trans-Atlantic sailing on May 8.

To satisfy the most discerning of palettes, Crystal’s gratis “well” liquors offer superior brands, such as Grey Goose, Maker’s Mark, Macallan Select, Hennessy V.S.O.P., and Herradura Silver.

Wines and champagnes include higher-end vintages from both boutique makers and big-name wineries, including Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay, St. Michael-Eppan Sauvignon Blanc Lahn, Edge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008, Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello di Bolgheri Varvara, Chateau Macquin St. Emilion, and Jacquart Brut Mosaique, Reims, France.

Dinner restaurants offer recommended pairings nightly, and sommeliers certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers remain on hand to assist with wine selections. There is no corkage fee on board if one wishes to enjoy wine purchased ashore.

An optional Connoisseur menu features award-winning, renowned and/or rare vintages, select single malt whiskeys and other aged spirits at reasonable in-store prices, as opposed to traditional upscale restaurant and hotel rates. Vintage Room experiences further tap into Crystal’s extensive wine cellar. Silver and Gold Connoisseur Packages of four and six fine wines, respectively, are also available for on-board gifts.

“Our ‘All Inclusive’ offers a luxuriously comfortable guest experience that focuses, as always, on incredible quality and impeccable execution,” says Thomas Mazloum, senior vice president, operations. “This ‘All Inclusive’ transition further enhances the extraordinary ease and value of a Crystal vacation.”
