Crystal Cruise Line ReviewCrystal Cruise LineCrystal Cruise Line

Crystal Cruises was created in 1990 with the goal of becoming the most premiere cruise line in the industry.  They have achieved this with multiple prestigious awards from Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler winning their unbelievable 16th consecutive “World’s Best Large-Ship Cruise Line”.

The company’s standard of luxury travel has been compared to most upscale hotels giving you the best cuisine, guest service and lavishly decorated staterooms.

The commitment that Crystal Cruises has shown towards making your travel experience so memorable can be seen throughout the internet from past Crystal cruise line travelers.  Their testaments are the driving force behind the companies passion to stay atop the luxury cruise line field.

The two vessels, Symphony and Serenity, call to all major ports throughout the world.  This two ships have both been refurbished to keep up with the new times and design that comes out.  Symphony is smaller with a cozier feel to it with over 50% of their staterooms having verandahs.  Serenity is larger of the two, but still doesn’t fail to give the plush accommodations that Crystal Cruises is known for, especially with 85% of the staterooms having verandahs.

The Crystal cruise line experience is hard to match, but with a lot of other cruise lines like Seabourn and Regent, it keeps Crystal always striving to be the best and put the best cruise product out.  We have to wait another year to see if they win their 17th consecutive award, but I wouldn’t expect anything less.
