Holiday Wishes from Crystal’s President & CEO
One of the joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to reflect on the year that has passed, which at Crystal, has been eventful and exciting as we celebrated our 28th year of exploring the world.
We are pleased to have shared so many major milestones with you…from river ship christenings and keel-laying ceremonies for our new ships, to the countless birthdays, anniversaries and bucket-list experiences that you chose to celebrate with us. I and the entire Crystal Family are honored to have been part of those moments in your lives and hope they have inspired new adventures for 2019 and beyond.
Crystal begins every year with one goal: to exceed the wishes and expectations of all of you. I have had the opportunity to speak with some of you throughout the year, aboard the President’s Cruise and other occasions, and it has been a pleasure to hear your perspectives on the facets of Crystal vacations that mean the most to you. As with all of life’s greatest experiences, the most important part for you has been the people. You have expressed that the personal connections with both crew and other guests as well as the attention to the detail aboard Crystal ships are what make the difference. This is the heart of what the Crystal Experience is and will always be.
I count myself very fortunate and thankful to be blessed with the exceptional crew we have that make that expectation a reality on all of our travel experiences. As we look forward, the crew will continue to be the driving force of what makes a true Crystal experience!
In 2019, there are many more adventures ahead. We will share more details about Crystal Endeavor as well as the Diamond Class, our new class of ocean ships plus much more. I also look forward to hosting President’s Cruises aboard both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Bach and exploring even further with you and sharing more of the special occasions that inspire you to travel the world.
On behalf of the entire Crystal Family, we want to thank you again for your continued loyalty and entrusting us with your journeys around the world.
I wish you a joyous holiday and a Happy New Year.
Here’s to more great adventures together in 2019!
