LOS ANGELES, September 11, 2007 – For the first time, the readers of Britain’s CondÃƒÂ© Nast Traveller voted Crystal Cruises their “Favourite Cruise Line: Large Ship.” Crystal Cruises also received the highest scores for “environmental friendliness” and “standard/comfort of cabins.” Winners of the publication’s 10th annual Readers’ Travel Awards were announced in London on September 3rd and will appear in the October 2007 issue.
“I am thrilled that all the efforts of the Crystal Cruises staff, both on board and shoreside, have been publicly recognized by the discerning readers of CondÃƒÂ© Nast Traveller,” says UK-based Philip Ordever, Crystal’s vice President, sales & marketing, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “Our team here in the UK is honored to have received such international distinction.”
CondÃƒÂ© Nast Traveller subscribers were asked to rate cruise ships on a 100-point scale. Scores are percentages based on votes from the readers in 11 categories, which include service, safety, environmental friendliness, ambience/dÃƒÂ©cor, nightlife/entertainment and standard/comfort of cabins, among others.
