For those dreaming of a cruise aboard a fabulous floating city this Summer, Crystal Cruises may just be the safest bet there is. The company has just been named Travel + Leisure’s “Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” for 2011.
Travel + Leisure’s 2011 reader survey asked travelers to rate cruise lines by; staff, itineraries, activities, accommodations, food, and overall value. According to the news, Crystal Cruises has added a number of enhancements for their passengers this year, including; Open Dining by Reservations, a $25 million makeover of ship Crystal Serenity, a wide array of complimentary programs and services like “You Care, We Care,” a new stage show, Pilates classes, and many others. Crystal President Gregg Michel had this to add:
“To have new and returning discerning travelers consistently vote Crystal Cruises as their World’s Best vacation is extremely gratifying. I’m very proud of our shipboard and shore-side teams who have a genuine passion for creating extraordinary guest experiences.”
Great cuisine to the face to face service crew members provide every day, Crystal Cruises has won just about every award there is for large cruise lines. Conde Nast Traveler bestowed their 17th consecutive “Best Large-Ship” award on the company again this year. And the list goes on. From the top of South America to Europe and Asia, Crystal offers some of the most comprehensive and unique vacations aboard ship in the world.
