LOS ANGELES, November 10, 2015 – The world’s most awarded luxury cruise line, has been honored once again by noted consumer advice and news magazine, U.S. News & World Report. Crystal Cruises received the #1 ranking for Best Luxury Cruise Line along with Best Cruise Line for Romance for the second consecutive year since the inaugural 2015 designations. The Best Cruise Lines’ rankings identify the top cruise companies in six categories based on a price class, expert evaluations, customer satisfaction and health ratings.

“At Crystal we strive to offer the best in luxury travel and guest experiences. To receive these two particular awards consecutively, is a nod to the level of luxury and service that only Crystal can offer and in fact continues to offer, “ said president and CEO Edie Rodriguez. “As we continue to expand the Crystal brand with our new luxury yacht, river, ocean and air offerings, our guests can look forward to experiencing the same levels of service in new ways.”
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.
Crystal Cruises is the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line, having earned more “World’s Best” accolades than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history. Crystal Cruises has won “World’s Best Cruise Ship” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader Choice Awards for 22 years; been voted “World’s Best Large Ship Cruise Line” by Travel + Leisure readers for 20 consecutive years; and the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso for two-consecutive years (2014 & 2015).
In summer 2015, Crystal embarked on the most significant brand expansion in the history of luxury travel and hospitality, which will introduce three new classes of cruising – Crystal Yacht Cruises (December 2015), Crystal River Cruises (July 2016), Crystal Exclusive Class Ocean Cruises (late 2018)– and Crystal Luxury Air (fall 2017).
