Last week, Crystal Cruises announced something guaranteed to make the executives of any company smile: a 70% increase in bookings from September.

Crystal also stated that bookings for 2010 were up well over 100% when compared to 2009 bookings made during the same time last year. 

If you watch your local news, however, you hear reports of how dire the economy is, and how much people are reigning in their spending.  But are they?

Crystal’s success can be attributed to a few unique factors – reduced pricing, including two-for-one fares on select 2010 voyages, a price guarantee for all cruises, free airfare for most cruises and for those booking Penthouse staterooms, free Business Class airfare. 

For travelers looking to experience Europe, the savings can be well worth it.  While other mainstream lines may have a lower base fare, Crystal’s two-for-one fares and included airfare means a voyage on Crystal can actually be more affordable than a similar mainstream itinerary.

The underlying theme is that travelers still have money to burn for a vacation – they’re just looking to get more bang for their buck.
