photoCrystal Cruises fits into the "large-ship luxury line" niche, although the line's two vessels are considerably smaller than the megaships of today's mass-market and premium cruise lines. (The Crystal Serenity holds 1,080 passengers, while the Crystal Symphony carries 940 guests each.)

photoThe line consistently ranks high in Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler reader polls, and in Douglas Ward's Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships.

Crystal is offering some two dozen Mediterranean and Northern European voyages on Crystal Symphony in 2016, plus a handful of transatlantic repositioning cruises. A new 62-passenger vessel, Crystal Espirit, will cruise in the Adriatic during 2016 under the Crystal Yacht Cruises brand, and Crystal Mozart will enter service on the Danube as the first vessel of Crystal River Cruises.
