Crystal Cruises will expand its complimentary Internet access to all of its guests beginning Aug. 30 on both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.
Crystal will provide one free hour per guest, per day for Deluxe Stateroom and Penthouse guests; 90 minutes for Penthouse Suite guests. With Crystal’s 24-hour satellite-enabled wireless Internet – which will also be available aboard Crystal Yacht Cruises’ Crystal Esprit when the maiden voyage embarks on Dec. 23, – travellers can remain connected while at sea, whether on their own devices or utilizing one of the ships’ cutting edge work stations or portable laptop rentals, which are available for a nominal fee.
“While some travellers like to ‘unplug’ on vacation, many of our guests wish to stay connected while travelling, whether for business purposes, to stay in touch with loved ones, or to share their Crystal experiences along their journeys,” says Crystal president Edie Rodriguez. “It is always our goal to make life aboard our ships as effortless and comfortable as possible for our guests, and amenities like free Internet go a long way to help those efforts.”
For guests seeking more time online, Crystal offers four packages: Plan A: “Pay As You Go” for $0.74 per minute; Plan B: two hours for $55 ($0.46 per minute); Plan C: five hours for $127 ($0.43 per minute); Plan D: 10 hours for $220 ($0.37 per minute).
The free Wi-Fi perk was previously available only to Crystal Society Members, the line’s repeat guest loyalty program.
