The unknown often keeps travelers from venturing out into the world. With the right knowledge, skills and connections, a travel agent can bridge this gap, and curate experiences that their clients might not have ever imagined. That is the Value of You — the travel agent — and our theme for the 2018 Crystal Conference and Awards, held January 27th – February 1st. Learn more about it in this year's Recap with Rick!
This being my 1st Crystal, I would highly recommend it to any Agent who hasn't attended. It was not only educational but very informative as well. Getting to meet with the Suppliers one-on-one, or just talking with them at the cocktail parties is so worth it.
- Britta Bailey
Every agent should make plans to attend Crystal as it's not only an amazing and fun time, but also a catalyst for anybody serious about selling travel.
- AJ Strauss
This was my first and I was beyond impressed! I left feeling confident and liked knowing how I have a KHM staff that is there to help me.
- Cindy Storch
This event was so organized and it is clear how valued we are by KHM management and staff!

We will not be offering a payment plan this year. Final payment is due November 30th, 2018. You may call or email in at any time to make payments.
All agents are responsible for their own air, transfers, and any pre/post-cruise accommodations.
Agents can share their cabins with a non-industry roommate. This roommate can be whomever they chose. 3 / 4 rates are available upon request. Triple and Quad occupancy can be requested but cannot be guaranteed. Requests may take up to 72 hours to confirm. All Triple and Quad rooms will require full state room deposits. We have to request this cabin type and they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If bringing children, please double check with the Princess Cruises for age limitations.
ADA-accessible cabins are available upon request. Please allow up to 72 hours for us to confirm your request for an ADA-accessible cabin.
Agents are encouraged to bring a guest and depending on space may be able to have 3 / 4 rates apply. We have a limited number available and they are on a first-come, first-serve basis. All agents are required to be at all events. Guests will be invited to select events.
There will be ample free time on the ship as well as in port for you to explore, relax and schedule your time as you wish.
2018 Basecamp and Pinnacle Elite Agents who have qualified KHM Cash available may apply up to $100.00 toward their Conference fare. However, KHM Cash cannot be applied once final payment is made. KHM Cash cannot be used toward the registration deposit.
As with all cruises, we suggest arriving a day prior to sailing to account for any delays that may occur. Please consult with Princess Cruises’ policy regarding Embarkation. Typical rule of thumb is all passengers must embark 2 hours prior to sail away. Please keep in mind that travel times on West Coast can vary, and allow yourself plenty of time to get to the Port of Los Angeles (San Pedro’s World Cruise Center).
There are no scheduled events, prior or post, at this time. All other accommodations are on your own.
There are no KHM-sponsored excursions scheduled during our port days. We want to allow agents and suppliers time to explore and network together.
There are no discounts on beverage or internet packages.
We have Anytime Dining this year. There is no assigned seating. You may also choose to dine at specialty restaurants on-board which are an additional charge.
Each agent is responsible for their parking at port. There is no discounted parking.
