Crystal Cruises Selected as Best Cruise Ship Line for Record 21st Time

October 29, 2014

In a huge affirmation of cruise industry excellence, Condé Nast Traveler magazine (U.S.) readers have voted Crystal Cruises* as the Best Midsize Cruise Ship Line for 2014. This is the eighth consecutive year — 21 times in total — that Crystal has received this recognition. In fact, Crystal’s score of 90.142 was the highest of all cruise lines in the small-, midsize-, and large-ship categories.
Nearly 77,000 readers voted in this year’s survey, critically evaluating not only the world’s best cruise lines but also hotels, airlines, cities, and islands.
In response to this recognition, Crystal president and COO Edie Rodriguez commented, “It is an extraordinary honor to be recognized as the No. 1 Midsize Cruise Ship Line by the well-traveled and discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveler for a record 21 years. Our guests highly evaluate our commitment to creating the ultimate luxury cruise experience.”

Earlier this year, Crystal Cruises was chosen by Travel + Leisure magazine as the World’s Best Cruise Line. 
The NYK Group will continue its efforts to offer safe and creative luxury cruise experiences that best meet the passions of its customers.
