Cruise & Travel Lifestyles

Crystal Cruises

The All-Inclusive Crystal Experience® is a heady combination of indulgent services and enriching discovery. Since our debut in 1990, we have been elevating and redefining the traditional notions of luxury cruising with innovative excellence, exquisitely designed ships, bold itineraries, customized destination immersion, and the highest standards of personalized service at sea and on land.

A proven leader in evolving the guest experience to stay ahead of global luxury travel trends, we were the first cruise line to partner with celebrity chefs—our Silk Road and Sushi Bar alternative dining venues are the only sea-going restaurants in Nobu Matsuhisa’s worldwide empire; the first to debut a Computer University@Sea® with personal e-mail and Internet services; the first to launch a now critically-acclaimed Wine & Food Festival; and the soon-to-be first luxury line to transit the Northwest Passage in 2016 and offer four distinct World Cruise options in 2018.

From launching the interactive Creative Learning Institute® with complimentary courses tailored to a guest’s own personal enrichment, to pushing the boundaries of gastronomic discovery with a cutting-edge new Modern Cuisine menu, we are continually adding new programs and features to our award-winning ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.
