Seabourn Cruise Line States the All-inclusive Model is No Scam and Crystal Travel Center in the Westlake Village - Thousand Oaks Area Reaches New Milestone

Seabourn Cruises is trying to bundle all costs of a cruise together while Crystal Travel Members reap the benefit of the highest number of vendors ever offered by their private club.

Crystal Travel Members already get access to an enormous number of vendors and according to sources at this private members only club, they now have the largest selection of vendors for members to choose.

According to the October 17, 2012 article from USA Today, Seabourn Cruise Lines is testing a more all-inclusive alternative to its current pricing formula that bundles the cost of a cruise with airfare, pre- and post-cruise hotel stays and up to $2,000 in credits for shore excursions, a top executive told attendees this week at the CruiseOne/Cruises Inc. National Conference here.

Speaking during a panel discussion in front of more than 700 travel agents, Seabourn's senior director for national accounts Charles Dunwoody said the line had been testing the program on select sailings for several weeks and could expand it if it's a success."It's been very well received so far," he noted. Seabourn already includes gratuities and alcoholic drinks in its fares.

Several other luxury lines including Regent Seven Seas and Crystal Cruises, (no relation to Crystal Travel) have been shifting to a more all-inclusive pricing model in recent years. Regent now includes pre-cruise hotel stays and shore excursions in its fares, and Crystal this year began including gratuities and alcoholic beverages in its fares.
