Crystal slashes prices for Mexico cruise in March 2011

Mexico has become the land of buried treasure as luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises announces dramatic discounts for its 10-day Mexican Riviera cruise sailing round trip from Los Angeles. Departing 31st March 2011, the getaway offers new per person tiered rates at 30-45% less than previous fares: $1995 for Deluxe Outside Staterooms with large windows, $2995 for Verandah Staterooms, and $5995 and $7995 for its butler-serviced Penthouses and Penthouse Suites, respectively – plus $500 “All Inclusive – As You Wish” shipboard spending credits. The Mexican destinations they’re visiting are really very welcoming to tourists, but negative publicity in other parts of Mexico have hurt tourism for the whole country. By offering this itinerary at such unprecedented prices, the cruise line hopes that those who have dreamed about experiencing Crystal’s ‘VIP treatment’ will be inspired to sample this convenient warm weather, winter getaway. Sailing round-trip aboard the award-winning Crystal Symphony from easily-accessible LA, ports-of-call include San Diego; the charming villages of La Paz and Loreto; and legendary Mexican Riviera towns Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.

  1. I’m so surprised people are being put off travelling to Mexico the news being reported seems totally unrelated to the tourists. When we went there the people were so friendly and helpful, they made the holiday!

  2. for some reason mexico does seem to get a bad rap on the publicity front, but considering cruises only tend to be in the resort for the day i wouldn’t have thought it would make that much difference to the cruise lines and more to the visitors who are staying in the resorts.

  3. I agree, the people in Mexico overall are very friendly.

    The savings offered are very good value.
