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 1,070 passengers, while the Crystal Symphony carries 922.)

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 14 dozen Mediterranean and Northern European voyages aboard its large ships in 2017, plus a repositioning cruise from New York to Reykjavik.

A new 62-passenger vessel, Crystal Espirit, is cruising in the Adriatic and Aegean during 2017 under the Crystal Yacht Cruises brand.

The company has also launched a new Crystal River Cruises line with three ships in 2017.
