NEWS| Condé Nast Traveler votes Best Ships in the World

The ships of Crystal Cruises have once again earned top honors from the readers of Condé Nast Traveler

The ships of Crystal Cruises have once again earned top honors from the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, who named the ultra-luxury vessels the best medium-sized ships in the world. Of nearly 100 ships, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony were ranked #1 and #2, respectively, in the magazine's ninth annual "Best Cruise Ships in the World" issue.

Although the medium-sized category includes ships carrying between 500-1,500 passengers, Crystal Serenity's overall score of 93.3 ranked higher than any other ship in all groups. Crystal Symphony ranked second in the medium-sized group, with an overall score of 92.9.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, respectively, earned some of their highest ever scores for Crew/Service (96.6 and 95.7), Activities/Facilities (93.9 and 93.1), Cabins (89.1 and 89.7) and Design/Layout (96.2 and 94.4). Crystal Serenity's scores for its Activities/Facilities and Design/Layout also topped those of every other ship rated for this poll. Having recently undergone a multi-million dollar drydock, she now boasts additional plush Penthouses and a newly renovated Crystal Cove bar and Plaza lobby, and a completely rebuilt casino.

Travelers also appreciated Crystal's dining and increasing focus on intimate, once-in-a-lifetime experiences ashore. Crystal's Food/Dining scores (95.0 for both ships), and its shore excursions (87.7 and 86.9) rated higher than most ships in the survey. Not one to rest on its laurels, the luxury line has rolled out more than 750 Crystal Adventures for its 2009 Northern Europe and Mediterranean seasons, roughly 150 of which are brand new.

"The most discerning, value-conscious luxury consumers purchase luxury products based on real quality, and the consistency of the experience," says Crystal Cruises' President Gregg L. Michel. "This is a tremendous validation of unique and unparalleled experience travelers find onboard Crystal ships."

Condé Nast Traveler asked its subscribers to rate 418 ships on a 100-point scale. A total of 90 eligible ships are reviewed in the February 2009 issue.

NEWS| IHG warns of tough times ahead

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has warned that 2009 is set to be a difficult time for the hospitality sector after experiencing a sharp deterioration in fourth quarter trading, despite reporting a 12 per cent increase in profits for the year ending 31 December.

Although IHG recorded global RevPAR growth of 0.9 per cent, it includes a 6.5 per cent fall during the last three months of 2008, and the company has admitted that its forward bookings data shows no sign of improvement heading into 2009.

In the year ending 31 December, IHG increased its estate by 6 per cent with the addition of 34,757 rooms. The company currently has a further 85,000 rooms under construction, 50,000 of which are scheduled to open in 2009.

IHG has also identified the US$1bn (£702m) relaunch of the Holiday Inn brand in 2009 as one of the company's main priorities, with 350 sites already operating under the new standard. Around 220 more sites are expected to be converted during the first quarter of 2009 after the relaunched sites reported a RevPAR increase of 5 per cent.

The company is also looking to reduce regional and central costs by US$30m (£21m) this year, although it plans to continue investing in order to support growth.
