LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2012 - Just months after being voted the world's top mid-sized cruise ships by the well-traveled readers of Condé Nast Traveler, the magazine's discerning audience has ranked Crystal Cruises' Crystal Spa and Salon aboard Crystal Serenity the best of any medium-sized cruise ship, with a score of 94.0. Crystal Serenity's sister ship, Crystal Symphony, also enjoyed a high score (91.4), making Crystal the only line with its entire fleet included in the esteemed list of top 10. Travelers rated spas on staff, facilities and treatments; the complete list of the world's best spas is featured in the prestigious magazine's June issue.
Boasting Feng Shui-inspired designs, expertly-trained therapists, Elemis and Bliss products, and private relaxation areas with sweeping ocean views, the Crystal Spa and Salons soothe guests with Pro-Collagen Marine Facials, Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow "rituals," reflexology, aroma stone therapy, and more than a dozen face, nails, hair and body treatments. True romantics can treat themselves to a couples' massage, while Penthouse guests can indulge in massages from the comfort of their suite. These, plus less expected choices like teeth whitening and acupuncture, extend the over-the-top "Crystal Experience" beyond the exotic destinations and adventures, spacious outdoor decks and world-class restaurants.
"Whether one is seeking a day of beauty and pampering or an impromptu, complimentary sauna or steam session, our spas augment one's vacation with varying options that will uplift, enlighten or enhance relaxation," says Alexandra Don, vice president, hotel services and design. "We are honored that experienced travelers recognize the exceptional service, choices and design of our Crystal Spa and Salons."
The Crystal Spa and Salons are operated by Steiner Leisure, a global provider of spa services, manufacturer of premium products, and accredited educator.
With a penchant for wellness, Crystal ships also include fully-equipped fitness centers, with state-of-the-art Kinesis™ strength training equipment; Spin, Pilates and yoga classes; and an exclusive Walk on Water® program. The ships' restaurants cater to most any dietary preference or need and offer extensive menus featuring only the freshest ingredients.
Crystal's passion for taking care of guests in an inviting environment of extraordinary space, quality and choices has earned the company more "World's Best" awards than any other cruise line, resort, or hotel in history. With no guest request left untended, Crystal Cruises has been the perfect choice for luxury travelers for more than two decades.
