Crystal Cruises named 2020 ultra-luxury cruise line

Crystal Cruises was honoured as the Ultra-Luxury Cruise Line of the Year in the 2020 TTG Luxury Travel Awards during a gala ceremony in London. The awards are voted on by some of the industry’s most esteemed experts. Crystal Cruises’ win was given for its commitment to highly specialised standards of personalised luxury, service, space and choices on board its two ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, and is the latest in the company’s decades-long history of earning the highest acclaim and accolades from travellers and professionals.

“We are thrilled and honoured to be recognised by TTG Media in the ultra-luxury cruise category, as this award speaks directly to the hallmarks of the Crystal Experience that have dazzled travellers around the world time and again,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “It is always gratifying to know the special attention to the details that matter most – personalised service, abundant space and choices and consistency in our commitment to our guests’ satisfaction – is resonating with travel advisors and their clients.”

Crystal Cruises

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary of cruising this year, the company reaffirmed its philosophy that true luxury is defined by the individual wishes of each guest when it launched its Where Luxury is Personal campaign, celebrating the varied preferences of travellers. Crystal is celebrated for the genuine warmth and personal connections delivered by crew members across its brand experiences.

The Crystal Experience offers  four distinct cruising options:

  • Crystal Cruises, the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line
  • Crystal River Cruises, the World’s Most Luxurious River Cruise Line
  • Crystal Yacht Cruises, offering boutique luxury and bold adventure in the world’s most elite harbours
  • Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises, taking Crystal’s acclaimed elegance to the farthest reaches of the world

Crystal has been recognised with top honours in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards for a record 25 years; voted “World’s Best” by the readers of Travel + Leisure for 20 years; and won the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso for four years (2014, 2015, 2016 & 2018).
