The reborn Crystal Cruises is ramping up support for travel advisors by appointing a team of highly regarded industry veterans to key trade sales leadership roles. The new Crystal Cruises, now part of the A&K Travel Group, is committed to rebuilding the partner relationships that made the cruise line an industry leader and a favorite of guests and travel advisors.
“Our goal is to build a sales team made up of trusted professionals who understand Crystal’s brand ethos,” explains new Crystal Cruises president Jack Anderson. “These initial hires will lead our trade sales efforts in the coming months, as we announce the return to service of ‘Crystal Serenity’ and ‘Crystal Symphony’, as well as itineraries for 2023 and 2024.”
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Monique, Paul and Melissa back to the Crystal Cruises brand,”says Brandon Townsley, Vice President, Sales & Trade Partnerships. “Given their connections and contributions to the brand over the years, their roles and experience, insight and tenured relationships with the travel advisor community will be vital to the company’s success as we begin a new chapter of providing unrivaled six-star luxury experiences at sea.”
In the coming weeks, Crystal Cruises will be launching a campaign to re-engage travel sellers with the brand. Travel Advisors are invited to register at CrystalCruises.com for updates on appointments, ship enhancements and new itineraries.

Guest capacity will be reduced with more suites, larger staterooms and fresh public spaces. Crystal Cruises will again raise the bar on gracious and luxurious cruising, built on the pillars of service, choice, quality and space.DOWNLOAD PDF
