The arrangement will see Crystal provide an onboard amenity program for clients, Ensemble-hosted sailings and access to travel advisor reduced rate voyages, enabling members to experience Crystal firsthand.
To mark the alignment, Crystal is Ensemble’s featured ‘Partner of the Month,’ which includes training webinars, enhanced marketing initiatives and additional benefits, that also incorporates a contest to win a free trip with Crystal for bookings made in January.
“Ensemble is an ideal partner with a great network of agencies across North America,” said Kim Guimaraes, Vice President, National Accounts for Abercrombie & Kent and Crystal in North America. “We are excited to kick off our relationship being recognized as their ‘Partner of the Month’ and look forward to welcoming their advisors and clients onboard in the coming months.”
Ensemble has decades of experience and prides itself on offering its members and their clients’ choices that go beyond elevating standards but lead to unique, memorable experiences.
“We are thrilled to welcome Crystal as a partner as we continue to expand our offerings in the luxury travel sector,” said Michael Johnson, President of Ensemble. “Watching Crystal’s relaunch last summer has excited all of our members, and they cannot wait to speak to their clients about the exceptional voyages Crystal has to offer around the world.”
Headquartered in New York and Toronto, Ensemble previously operated an Australia/New Zealand office from Sydney before closing the local arm during the pandemic, having shifted its business focus to wholly centred on the North American market.
