Crystal Cruises is to expand its complimentary Internet access to guests. Beginning 30th August, travellers onboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity will now receive one free hour of Internet usage per day for those staying in a Deluxe Stateroom or Penthouse. The extended Internet access will also be offered onboard Crystal Yacht Cruises’ Crystal Esprit, which enters service with Crystal Cruises in December 2015.
Edie Rodriguez, President & CEO of Crystal Cruises, explained:
“While some travelers like to ‘unplug’ on vacation, many of our guests wish to stay connected while traveling, whether for business purposes, to stay in touch with loved ones, or to share their Crystal experiences along their journeys. 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 convenient packages to suit their needs:
- Plan A: “Pay As You Go” for $0.74 per minute
- Plan B: 2 hours (120 minutes) for $55 ($0.46 per minute)
- Plan C: 5 hours (300 minutes) for $127 ($0.43 per minute)
- Plan D: 10 hours (600 minutes) for $220 ($0.37 per minute)
The complimentary Internet access was previously exclusive for Crystal Society Members only, but after recent improvements which saw increased bandwidth and expansive Wi-Fi hotspots – including all staterooms, public spaces, and outdoor decks – the cruise line decided to offer complimentary access to both Deluxe Stateroom and Penthouse guests.
