Claudia Julissa Cruz Rodríguez (born February 5, 1986 in Bonao) is a Dominican actress, TV Host, model and beauty pageant titleholder who represented her country at the Miss World 2004 pageant.


After representing Bonao and placing only as the 5th Runner-Up in the Miss Dominican Republic 2004 pageant, which was won by Larimar Fiallo, Cruz decided to take another chance at the new revamped and independent Miss Mundo Dominicana contest. For the first time ever the contest would be a reality show, the semifinalists being narrowed down by judges and the finalists and winners based on public vote. Having received 66% of the votes, Claudia was named winner on October 10, 2004 only a month before departure to the contest. Despite the lack of time to prepare herself for the Miss World pageant, she won the title of Continental Queen of the Caribbean and finished as the 1st Runner-Up to the eventual winner, María Julia Mantilla from Peru.
