The travel industry’s best and brightest were honored at the fifth annual Travvy Awards, during a recent ceremony held in New York City and Crystal Cruises received the Gold Award for Best Luxury Cruise Line.
Receiving a Travvy award is considered one of the top honors in the travel industry.
Hosted by travAlliancemedia, the Travvy awards are selected by working travel agents who have direct knowledge about each category, company and organization nominated. This year, over 130,000 votes were cast across all award categories, more than any previous year.
“The Travvy’s are the Oscars of the travel industry,” travAlliancemedia President and CEO Mark Murphy told Janeen Christoff of TravelPulse.com.
More than 280 individual awards were handed out this year, honoring the top travel companies delivering the highest quality experiences in categories that include destinations, hotels and resorts, cruise lines and tour operators.
“Awards like the Travvy’s – which are decided by experts who are actively working with travelers to create the very best vacation experiences – are extremely gratifying, as they reaffirm that Crystal’s commitment to luxury and exceeding the expectations of our guests continues to resonate with their most trusted advisors,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales.
Crystal Cruises’ ocean-going global experiences continue to represent the heart of the long-celebrated brand, which remains the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line. The company has reaffirmed its investment in both the Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, as the two ships have emerged from the most extensive dry dock redesigns in their histories.
Crystal has also been recognized with top honors in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards for a record 25 years, voted “World’s Best” by the readers of Travel + Leisure for 20 years, and won the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso for four years.
