Cruises is at present perhaps the most highly rated of all the "big
ship" luxury cruise lines. The line has a very high repeat passenger
rate, and many of Crystal cruises sell out early.
The "six star" Crystal Cruise line represents the ultra-deluxe
segment of the cruise business, and as most Luxury Cruise Lines is
primarily a small ship operator. Luxury Cruise Lines offer a noticeably
more elevated level of service than the regular five- star cruises
but also tend to be the most expensive cruises. They are definitely
not mass market. Exceptional service, elegant and refined ambiance,
extra attention to passenger comfort and satisfaction, larger food
budgets, a very high level of ship's maintenance, and more inclusive
pricing are some of the hallmarks of the six-star cruise lines
Beginning Spring 2012, Crystal Cruises will be All Inclusive, enhancing the already expansive host of complimentary luxury services and amenities with the addition of free fine wines and premium spirits, open bar service in all lounges, and complimentary gratuities for housekeeping, bar and dining staff.
Effective with the spring Trans-Atlantic crossings of Crystal Symphony (March 19, 2012), and Crystal Serenity (May 8, 2012), guests can enjoy the added convenience of all-included luxury with the cruise line voted World’s Best more than any other in history.
