Crystal Cruises, an American luxury cruise line, holds a sweet spot in my travel industry career as it is the first and only cruise company I’ve worked for and sailed on. I believe I was only 20 years old then and the world of travel was new to me. Still in college, I did not have a clear vision on what I wanted to do within the travel industry or if I should stick to my major (which at the time was music). I was offered to go on a “familiarization” or FAM trip to Alaska. Mind you, the last place I wanted to visit was Alaska! I knew nothing about it. I was not aware of Alaska’s beautiful views or how close you get to see the Glaciers.
I was blown away with how friendly and respectful the staff was to me (a 20-year-old kid from Los Angeles, Calif.). I was floored with the food!!! Oh my God, the food. It was the first time I had Spagos. It was the first time I had caviar, my first adventure on a ship and the first time I wore a tuxedo (which, if you know me, I like to dress up). It was my first of a lot and I thank God it was with Crystal Cruises. Since then, I’ve grown to LOVE travel, cruising and food because of my first experience with the “world’s best” cruise line recognized by Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler and Virtuoso.
