Crystal Cruises carries on the tradition of the great luxury cruise ships such as the SS Rotterdam, RMS Caronia and MS Kungsholm. Celebrating a new mark in travel histroy, the elegant cruise company has once again been voted the “Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” for 2009 by the readers of the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine (U.S.). Crystal’s overall score of 92.7 is one of its highest in the survey’s history. The luxury line’s 16 “wins” is unprecedented by any cruise line or hotel in the world.

“With just months until we celebrate our 20th anniversary of cruising in 2010, we are especially honored to be voted the very best by the discerning readers of Conde Nast Traveler,” says Gregg Michel, president, Crystal Cruises. “As the competition intensifies and our guests’ expectations increase, this award is an outstanding measure of achievement and a testament to the consistency of the Crystal experience. I am very proud of our exceptional staff and their commitment to providing so many global travelers with a dream vacation that exemplifies the highest standards of hospitality.”

Considered one of the highest honors in the travel industry, the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards celebrate the best-of-the-best hotels, airlines, cruise lines, cities, rental car companies and islands. More than 25,000 subscribers voted in the 2009 survey. Travelers evaluated cruise lines on their Activities/Facilities, Cabins, Crew/Service, Design/Layout, Food/Dining, Itineraries and Shore Excursions to determine the overall score. The full list of travel awards are published on the magazine’s website and in its November 2009 issue.

Attesting to the consistency of its luxury travel experience, in August 2009, Crystal was voted the 2009 “World’s Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” by the readers of Travel + Leisure (U.S.), as well as top honors internationally and from trusted travel agent consortiums.

Renowned for their service, space, quality and choices, Crystal Cruises’ two stylish ships, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, were voted number one and two, respectively, in Conde Nast Traveler’s February 2009 World’s Best Ships issue. The ultra-luxury line has been recognized for innovative partnerships with Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Piero Selvaggio, stimulating Creative Learning Institute and Computer  University@Sea, Feng Shui-designed spa, and a myriad of culinary, cultural and fitness-oriented enrichment.

About Michael L. Grace

During the mid-80s, Michael Grace worked as a writer on the TV Hit Series THE LOVE BOAT. He wrote many of the two hour special featuring great stars of the past, including Lana Turner, Claire Trevor, Anne Baxter, Ethel Merman, Alexis Smith, etc. The public’s access to these stars, in familiar dramas and comedies, made them want to go on a cruise. They could see the stars in an ordinary world as “regular” people. The phenomenally successful series was responsible for creating the cruise industry as we know it today. By the time he was writing for Love Boat, the great steamship companies and their liners were flying hand me down foreign flags, painted like old whores, scrapped or doing three day cruises to the Bahamas. He had sailed on over thirty ships and liners with his parents, aunt and grandmother in late 50s to early 70s. The very successful CRUISING THE PAST website has been an outgrowth of Michael’s strong interest in cruise and social history. Drawing on his own knowledge and a vast maritime and social history collection, he is able to produce a very successful website. Michael is part of the award winning team that created the internationally performed award winning musical SNOOPY, based on PEANUTS by Charles M. Schultz. He has written for television and films. Read more by going to "About" (on the above dashboard) and clicking "Editor"…
