CRYSTAL: PAST, PRESENT AND ONWARD
The unparalleled success of Crystal began with – and is still rooted in – an expressed commitment to a superior standard of excellence and level of service within the luxury hospitality industry. This standard is one that Crystal continues to raise, as the company reaches new milestones and new travelers.
Founded in 1989 as Crystal Cruises, the company established the first true luxury travel experience at sea with the launch of its first ocean ship, Crystal Harmony. Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity followed and, with them, came continued accolades for the Crystal Experience™, with noted acclaim for the supreme level of service found aboard the elegant ships. The last 25+ years since have seen several stylish redesigns that have kept the ships at the height of elegance and latest technologies, groundbreaking itineraries that have reached all corners of the globe, and innovative experiences on board and ashore that explore the culinary and adventurous elements of worldwide cultures.
Today, more than 25 years after the launch of Crystal Harmony, and more than a decade spent as a two-ocean ship cruise line, Crystal has grown to include some of the world’s most awarded travel experiences.
