Crystal Cruises has launched a brand-new referral program. The Crystal Referral Program is designed to reward loyal passengers who share their cruise experiences with their family and friends.

For every “new to Crystal” guest a loyal past traveler refers, the new guest will receive five percent off their cruise fare, and the past traveler will receive the same value as a credit to use towards a future voyage. There is no limit to the number of guests a person can refer, so savings on future voyages are essentially endless.

“We are delighted to introduce this referral program that celebrates the enduring loyalty of our guests,” said Marett Taylor, Chief Sales Officer at A&K Travel Group. “We believe that the joy of cruising is best shared with friends, and this opportunity not only rewards our guests for their referrals but also extends the warm embrace of the Crystal family to new travelers.”

Here are some terms and conditions of the Crystal Referral Program:

  • The program is effective as of April 4, 2024.
  • The friend and Crystal Society member can’t be the same person (for example, by using a different email address) nor can they be from within the same household.
  • For each “Eligible Referral,” Crystal Society members receive a future cruise credit in an amount equal to the five percent savings extended to their friend.
  • An Eligible Referral is defined as a verified friend who books and sails on a future Crystal cruise; guests booked within the same suite/stateroom don’t constitute an Eligible Referral.
  • To qualify as an Eligible Referral, the friend must submit their referral request and provide the Crystal Society Member information within 14 days of paying their initial deposit.
  • The Referral Credit is only earned once an Eligible Referral is within 45 days of departure and their booking is paid in full.
  • If the friend cancels their booking, the referral credit is rendered null and void unless the friend’s booking is non-refundable.
  • A Crystal Society member can refer as many friends as they want and receive a Referral Credit for each referral; there is no limit to how many credits can be applied towards a new booking.
  • The credit is not applicable to reduced rate bookings and charter sailings.
  • Travel agents aren’t eligible to refer new guests and are not entitled to earn future cruise credits through the program.
  • The program only applies to new bookings made by friends on or after April 4, 2024.
