Crystal Cruises selected as 'World's Best' for a record 18th year in the annual Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards” readers' survey.

NYK say that the ultra-luxury vacation company is the only cruise line, hotel, or resort to win its category every year since the awards began.

Crystal’s winning score for 2013 reflects thousands of jet-setting readers’ ratings across six areas: service, itineraries/destinations, activities, accommodations, food, and value. Crystal Cruise was also recognized in the survey for offering the World's Best Service (Large-Ship).

“To win this prestigious award once is a tremendous honor. To win this award for 18 years is humbling — a testament to the passionate dedication, professionalism, and creativity of our extraordinary staff,“ says Crystal president Gregg Michel. “Never resting on our laurels, each year we thoughtfully refine our Crystal experience with new entertainment choices, design enhancements, culinary attractions, and shore-side options. Consistent throughout is authentically warm service, exceptional quality, superior choices, and unwavering attention to detail. We are inspired to continuously improve our service to each discriminating guest.”

Established in 1988, the company offers a range of luxury cruises on its two ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, which were recently recognized as the top two medium-sized cruise ships in the world, according to NYK Group.
