NYK is proud to announce that the NYK Group’s Crystal Cruises* has been selected as the World’s Best Large-Ship Cruise Line in the annual Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards” readers’ survey. This win is Crystal’s 18th consecutive triumph. The ultra-luxury vacation company is the only cruise line, hotel, or resort to win its category every year since the awards began.
“To win this prestigious award once is a tremendous honor. To win this award for 18 years is humbling — a testament to the passionate dedication, professionalism, and creativity of our extraordinary staff,“ says Crystal president Gregg Michel. “Never resting on our laurels, each year we thoughtfully refine our Crystal experience with new entertainment choices, design enhancements, culinary attractions, and shore-side options. Consistent throughout is authentically warm service, exceptional quality, superior choices, and unwavering attention to detail. We are inspired to continuously improve our service to each discriminating guest.”
Crystal’s winning score for 2013 reflects thousands of jet-setting readers’ ratings across six areas: service, itineraries/destinations, activities, accommodations, food, and value. Crystal Cruise was also recognized in the survey for offering the World’s Best Service (Large-Ship).
