Readers of Conde Nast Traveller Magazine in the UK have voted Crystal Cruises as the best large-ship cruise line in the world.
Conde Nast Traveller Magazine in the UK is publishing the 15th edition of its Readers Choice Awards in October. As part of the awards, Crystal Cruises was voted the best large-ship cruise line in the world. Additionally, Crystal's service was ranked as the best in the cruise industry.
It has been a good year for the line which also obtained the first-ever cruise industry award from Hospitality Design Magazine and the Association of Retail Environments. This year Crystal Cruises also became Travel + Leisure magazine readers' choice for the World's Best Cruise Line for the 17th year running.
Crystal Cruises is a Japanese luxury brand founded in 1988 and based in Los Angeles. Two of its ships, the Crystal Symphony and the Crystal Serenity hold about 1,000 guests each. Both ships sail around the world with itineraries over 5 to 100 days through the Caribbean, Asia, Africa, South Pacific, South America and the Panama Canal, among others.
Each year, Conde Nast asks its readers to rate the world's most celebrated cities and islands, hotels and resorts, cruise ships and airlines. October's publication includes a Top 100 list of winners from a variety of categories including destinations.
