view bio

Edie Rodriguez is president and chief executive officer of Crystal Cruises, the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line. Rodriguez joined Crystal as president and COO in October 2013; she was promoted to president and CEO following the acquisition of Crystal Cruises by Genting Hong Kong in May 2015. A 35-year veteran in the international cruise, travel and technology industries, with a successful track record and great understanding of the luxury segment that has seen her rise to be the only female CEO in the luxury cruise industry, Rodriguez previously served as senior vice president of marketing and sales for the upscale division of other major cruise companies. On July 19, 2015, Rodriguez unveiled the blueprint for a major brand expansion for Crystal, to take place over the next three years. Dubbed by the travel and hospitality industry as the largest expansion in history for any luxury brand, Rodriguez will lead and oversee the introduction of three new classes of ships and vessels with Crystal Yacht Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, and Crystal Exclusive Class of ocean vessels – and Crystal Charter Air and Crystal Luxury Air.
Rodriguez grew up in New York, and when not traveling for business on American Airlines seat 3A, she splits her time at Crystal’s Los Angeles headquarters, and resides near Crystal Cruises’ branch office in Miami, Florida with her husband Tom. She has one son, Max.

about the brands

The All-Inclusive Crystal Experience® is a heady combination of indulgent services and enriching discovery. Since our debut in 1990, we have been elevating and redefining the traditional notions of luxury cruising with innovative excellence, exquisitely designed ships, bold itineraries, customized destination immersion, and the highest standards of personalized service at sea and on land. A proven leader in evolving the guest experience to stay ahead of global luxury travel trends, we were the first cruise line to partner with celebrity chefs—our Silk Road and Sushi Bar alternative dining venues are the only sea-going restaurants in Nobu Matsuhisa’s worldwide empire; the first to debut a Computer [email protected]® with personal e-mail and Internet services; the first to launch a now critically-acclaimed Wine & Food Festival; and the soon-to-be first luxury line to transit the Northwest Passage in 2016 and offer four distinct World Cruise options in 2018.

From launching the interactive Creative Learning Institute® with complimentary courses tailored to a guest’s own personal enrichment, to pushing the boundaries of gastronomic discovery with a cutting-edge new Modern Cuisine menu, we are continually adding new programs and features to our award-winning ships, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. In the last five years alone, Crystal® has invested more than $140 million in the stylish redesign and sophisticated technologies aboard both ships, rewarding our loyal Crystal Society® members and travel agent partners with an experience that is always fresh, new and exciting.

In May 2015, global hospitality and leisure company Genting Hong Kong (GHK), acquired Crystal Cruises from the our founding parent company, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK). With a shared vision to remain the very best ultra-luxury cruise line in the world, GHK plans to grow our acclaimed Crystal brand with an innovative new build set for delivery in 2018 that will outclass all current and on-order luxury offerings in the global cruise industry. Recognizing Crystal’s unprecedented award-winning success—we have been awarded World’s Best more than any other cruise line, hotel or resort in history—GHK is committed to ensuring the hallmarks of the Crystal Experience®—extraordinary service, abundant space, exceptional quality and incredible choices—remain firmly in place, as well as our company’s veteran leadership, management and crew.
