Crystal Cruises consistently ranks among the top luxury cruise lines in the world, having won an unprecedented number of major awards. They have been voted World’s Best by the readers of Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveller, more than any other cruise line, hotel or resort.
Discerning adults and families wanting exceptional service, high-level enrichment programs and the opportunity to explore interesting destinations. Most guests are 55+, however Crystal is leading the way in the evolution of multi-generational luxury cruising by offering concessions for children sailing on select cruises, as well as dedicated facilities and programs for ages 3 to 17.
Crystal Cruises offers a relaxed but sophisticated ambience. Staterooms are elegant, and the Crystal Penthouses are immaculate, with furnishings that would not be out of place in a top city penthouse – complete with butler service. Crystal’s shore excursions are highly rated. Rather than “one size fits all,” guests may choose from the standard type (similar to what is offered by other lines), small group (more personalised) or private (for groups of 4 or more).
Crystal’s guests tend to be affluent, educated, active, and socially-oriented. They are seasoned travellers and enjoy the finer things in life.
