If anyone is interested in Crystal's Share the Experience Program, what we call STEX, ***edited to remove advertising***. STEX is a program where passengers new to Crysal can be sponsored by someone who's already a Crystal Society member and both parties receive great benefits like room credits and coupons off your next cruise (that's for the sponsor only). We've set up a cruise matching thread so if you're new to Crystal, or if you're a member of the Crystal Society and would like to sponsor a new Crystal cruiser, come over and take a look.
We've just returned from the Harmony where we sponsored 3 other newbies. If you sponsor someone you get 30% off another 2005 cruise or 15% off a 2006 trip. Plus $100 per person shipboard credit for the newbie and $50 per person credit for the one who sponsors. You can sponsor up to 3 cabins. We are going on the Crystal Serenity on Dec 6th to Panama and Sept 17 on the Symphony to New England. If there are any newbies toCrystal that are on thoses cruises you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
