Crystal to raise prices on most cruises

Crystal to raise prices on most cruises

By Tom Stieghorst

Crystal Cruises said it would raise fares on 94% of its 2014, 2015 and 2016 cruises on March 1, reflecting strong demand.

Under its “Book Now” program, the luxury line assesses its fares every 60 days and raises them on itineraries that are selling sufficiently well to support it.

Crystal said fares would increase on more than 120 cruises for the next “Book Now” period ending April 30.

The line said 2014 is already 78% booked, and 2015 bookings are 42% ahead of this same time last year for 2014.
