For an unprecedented 17th year, Crystal Cruises has been voted the â€œBest Large-Ship Cruise Lineâ€ for 2010 by the influential readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveler magazine (U.S.). The ultra-luxury line holds the distinction of having won the award more than any other cruise line, hotel or resort in history.
â€œTo win one CondÃ© Nast Traveler award is truly gratifying. To win 17 times is a tribute to Crystal Cruisesâ€™ outstanding people, who consistently exceed our guestsâ€™ expectations with exceptional service and decidedly memorable Crystal experiences,â€ says Gregg Michel, president, Crystal Cruises.
Considered one of the highest honors in hospitality, the CondÃ© Nast Traveler Readersâ€™ Choice Awards celebrate the best-of-the-best hotels, airlines, cruise lines, cities, rental car companies and islands. More than 26,000 subscribers voted in the 2010 survey. Travelers evaluated cruise lines on their Activities/Facilities, Cabins, Crew/Service, Design/Layout, Food/Dining, Itineraries and Shore Excursions to determine the overall score. The full list of travel awards are published on the magazineâ€™s website and in its November 2010 issue.
Attesting to the consistency of its luxury travel experience, in 2010, Crystal was voted the â€œWorldâ€™s Best Large-Ship Cruise Lineâ€ by the readers of Travel + Leisure (U.S.) for a 15th consecutive year, and â€œFavourite Cruise Line- Large Shipâ€ by the readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveller (U.K.), as well as top honors from trusted travel agent consortiums and travel trade publications.
Renowned for their service, space, quality and choices, Crystal Cruisesâ€™ two stylish ships, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, were voted the #1 and #2 Mid-Sized Ships in the World by the readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveler magazine U.S. and earned the top two spots at Cruise magazine in Japan.
