Crystal Cruises Wins Three 2019 Condé Nast Traveller Awards

Crystal Cruises made history in the 2019 Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards by taking top honours across every category that it was eligible for in the magazine’s annual awards.

  • Crystal Cruises won Best Medium-Ship Cruise Line
  • Crystal Yacht Cruises won Best Small-Ship Cruise Line
  • Crystal River Cruises won Best River Cruise Line 

The Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. This year was their biggest travel awards ever, and they received a record-breaking number of responses from readers who rated their travel experiences around the world.

This marks a record 26th year that Crystal has received top recognition in these celebrated awards.

Crystal Cruises

The company’s oceangoing ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, remain the most awarded luxury ships at sea, both having undergone extensive redesigns recently that enhanced their already elegant spaces considerably.

Crystal River Cruises

Crystal River Cruises will boast the youngest fleet on Europe’s rivers in 2020, with four ships, Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler, Crystal Ravel & Crystal Debussy, sailing the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers. The 106-guest ships offer all-suite, all-balcony accommodations with butler service for every suite, with Michelin-inspired cuisine, fine wines, stylish spaces and open decks, while hundreds of inclusive, curated experiences ashore cater to travellers’ individual tastes.

Crystal Yacht Cruises Crystal Esprit

Crystal Yacht Cruises’ Crystal Esprit is a distinctly exclusive destination unto itself. The 62-guest yacht offers the exceptional calibre of cuisine, service and elegant suites for which Crystal is known, in an intimate atmosphere that mirrors that of a private yacht. On itineraries through the Seychelles, Adriatic and Arabian Peninsula, Crystal Esprit explores marquee destinations, as well as lesser visited locales that larger vessels cannot access. The yacht’s private marina is equipped for all manner of water adventures, complete with kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling and scuba gear and even a private submersible for deep-water exploration.

Crystal Expedition Cruises, Crystal Endeavor

Crystal’s acclaimed portfolio has grown to include the launch of Crystal Expedition Cruises and its new ship, Crystal Endeavor debuting in August of 2020. The German-built, Polar Class (PC6) expedition ship will accommodate just 200 guests in traditional Crystal fashion – all-suite accommodations, an array of world-class dining options including Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma & Sushi Bar, spacious and stylish public areas, full-service salon, spa and fitness centre – with additional state-of-the-art technology and equipment for exploring polar regions and remote subtropics.


Throughout its brand expansion that began in 2015, Crystal’s expressed commitment to an unwavering standard of luxurious service and excellence has been the core of the company’s philosophy. This dedication continues to resonate with discerning luxury travellers across the globe, consistently earning Crystal top accolades.
