For an unprecedented 19th consecutive year–and with its highest score ever–Travel + Leisure readers have voted Crystal Cruises the “World’s Best” Large-Ship Cruise Line in the prestigious magazine’s 2014 annual survey.  Recognized as a T+L Hall of Fame winner, Crystal is the only vacation experience–cruise line, hotel or resort–to have been voted #1 in its category every year since the awards’ inception. 

Thousands of jet-setting readers rated cruise lines on service, itineraries/destinations, activities, accommodations, food, and value, culminating in the overall score, which is published at www.travelandleisure.com/worldsbest and in the magazine’s August issue.

“It is such an honor to win this prestigious award, and it is truly a testament to our shipboard and shore-side teams who consistently strive to deliver such an extraordinary Crystal vacation,” says Edie Rodriguez, Crystal’s president and COO.  “Besides our ongoing passion for warm and attentive service, our creative, dedicated staff is continually refining the Crystal experience to introduce new culinary attractions, boutique options shore-side, stimulating entertainment choices and chic design enhancements.  It’s gratifying that these innovations are not only winning awards, but resonating with most discerning world travelers and respected professional travel agents.”

Novel features like restaurants with cuisine by Nobu Matsuhisa, ultimate wine experiences, Feng Shui-designed spas, and over-the-top Crystal Adventures in all seven continents distinguish the Crystal vacation.  In recent years, Crystal has invested more than $100 million in the Extreme Ship Makeovers of its luxurious and spacious ships, which added the industry’s first hypoallergenic staterooms and a new evening dining experience, Tastes, on Crystal Serenity, and artfully-crafted Modern Cuisine in its fine dining rooms.       

Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity sail on worldwide luxury cruises of five to 100+ days. New “Getaways” enable time-strapped travelers to enjoy more choices of shorter Crystal Cruises.


Further attesting to the consistency of its ratings, Crystal Cruises has been voted top in its category by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine for a record 20 years, as well as won numerous distinguished consumer, travel agent and media polls, and environmental awards worldwide.
