Crystal Cruises have grown so much recently in to the world of Cruising, Private Jets, Small Expedition ships but this is more pushed to the American Market and lesser known to the UK Market.
Even in the world of Ocean Cruising, if you asked someone who are the major player’s in the world of Luxury cruising and most will say, Oceania, Viking Ocean, Regent, Seabourn and Silversea.
However, you are missing out by not trying Crystal. Crystal are known for having much bigger ships but one of the biggest selling points is that they carry half the passengers that they could carry.
This is incredible noticeable, I was on the Crystal Symphony a couple of years ago and was very aware by the amount of space you had, how in the dining room, you are not sandwiched in to a table with waiters squeezing in. This is not the case with the other luxury lines but perhaps a little more noticeable with Crystal.
Everything from the quality of the staterooms and the luxury inside and out, from the amazing choice of inclusive drinks and the fantastic food to be sampled I really could not fault it at all, and at the drop of a hat I would be more than happy to spend a week on board.
So I am very excited with the news that Crystal will be being some new ships and we now have more details on the said ships – they will be sailing under the ‘Diamond Class’, the name is yet unknown.
The first ship will debut in 2022 and will carry around 800. She will be a similar size to the Crystal Serenity which at the moment carries over 1050 passengers but that will change later in the year after a refit and become less at 980 passengers so where many cruise lines add on cabins and more people, Crystal are reducing that to improve the overall experience to its guests on board.
Crystal Cruises has been much loved by its followers for 28 years, but this is the first new ship for Crystal Cruises since 2003 when they launch the Crystal Serenity in 2003.

More details to follow very soon, as soon as Crystal decide to give us another taste of what’s to come.
