photoCrystal Cruises fits into the "large-ship luxury line" niche, although the largest of the line's vessels are considerably smaller than the megaships of today's mass-market and premium cruise lines. (Crystal Serenity holds 1,070 passengers, while Crystal Symphony carries 922.)

Besides the two large ships, Crystal operates a 62-passenger "yacht," Crystal Espirit, and is introducing Crystal Endeavor, a polar-class megayacht, in 2020.

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 nearly three dozen Mediterranean and Northern European voyages aboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony in 2020.

The company has also launched a Crystal River Cruises line with itineraries on the Rhine, Main, Moselle, and Danube.
