Exclusive Champagne on Crystal To Celebrate 20th Anniversary
Crystal Cruises has joined with renowned Champagne maker Billecart-Salmon to create a commemorative bottle of Champagne especially for the cruise line’s 20th Anniversary in 2010. Exclusively available only on Crystal Cruises in 2010, the Brut Réserve is a light blend aged in the famous Billecart-Salmon House’s traditional cellars.
Crafted from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier from three different years, and sourced from the best sites in France’s Champagne region, the special cuvee for Crystal Cruises boasts a mature floral aroma with hints of fresh fruit and ripe pears. The Champagne will play a key role in the many celebrations onboard Crystal’s award-winning ships in 2010.
“Our guests are savvy travellers with sophisticated palates, who appreciate exclusive, fine details such as this,” says Toni Neumeister, vice president, food and beverage operations.
Every voyage will feature 20th Anniversary themed cocktail parties and Vintage Room experiences with wines from 1990, while select cruises commemorating inaugural dates in the line’s history will feature special dinners with original wine prices, among other festivities.
2010 prices start from £2,145 per person for a seven-night Mediterranean voyage from Athens to Venice departing 18th May. Price includes return scheduled economy flights, transfers, seven nights in a deluxe stateroom with picture window with all meals and soft drinks, port taxes and basic gratuities.
