For a record 22nd consecutive year, Crystal Cruises has been named the No. 1 “Midsize Cruise Ship Line” in Condé Nast Traveler US magazine’s Readers’ Choice awards. The world’s most awarded luxury cruise line earned a final score of 90.456, which was the highest of all small and midsize cruise lines.


“We are extremely grateful and honored to once again be named the No. 1 Midsize Cruise Ship Line by the sophisticated readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said Edie Rodriguez, president and CEO, Crystal Cruises. “This recognition validates the commitment and passion for service our team at sea and on land demonstrate, particularly as it is awarded by a distinguished group who are incredibly savvy about global luxury travel. We look forward to providing them with the same six-star service and luxurious experiences in the next chapter of Crystal experiences in yachting, river, air and ocean.”

Crystal continues to enhance its overall guest experience to ensure the highest level of satisfaction that the line is lauded for during the last 25 years. In 2015, Crystal introduced new features on board Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity – themselves frequent recipients of the lauded travel magazine’s “Best” awards – including free Wi-Fi to all guests for 60 minutes per day, new spa services including Medi-Spa, upgrades to the in-room amenities to the well-known ETRO luxury brand, and the introduction of new ports into the line’s versatile and immersive itineraries.

In continuing to provide guests with the best luxury experiences, Crystal announced plans to expand beyond its two ships within the next three years with the introduction of Crystal Yacht Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Luxury Air, and the Crystal Exclusive Class ocean vessels which will feature Crystal Residences.

Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest- running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry, commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”
