If you read my post Japan, China and Korea: Crystal Cruises, you know I am very disappointed that the 14-day Crystal cruise appears to be sold out.
Even though I checked CostcoTravel and Vacations-to-Go to no avail, I decided to see if any travel agents had the cruise. So, I registered to receive multiple quotes through CruiseCompete on August 13, 2016. The positive thing about that site is it doesn’t give the travel agents your direct information, all responses are filtered through the site.
Anyway, I received 4 responses.
On August 13, 2016, I received a response from Todd, at Cruise-n-more. Every room I requested said not available.
On August 15, 2016, I received a response from Crown Vacations.
There is currently no availability on this sailing. Please contact us directly and we can help you plan an alternate itinerary around Asia. Thank you.

On August 15, 2016, I also received a response from Cruise Vacation Outlet.
