Crystal Cruises

The ultimate in luxury cruising

It is so often the little details that make all the difference, and on a Crystal cruise, the differences are many.

Crystal, recently bought by Genting HK to begin a new chapter in luxury cruising, was created in 1988 and operates Crystal Symphony, able to carry 940 guests, and the 1,080-guest Crystal Serenity, which was launched in 2003.

Crystal Symphony emerged from a month-long top-to-toe refurbishment in November 2017, while Serenity will undergo her transformation in Autumn 2018.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony

In recent years Crystal it has been charting a dramatic new course, with three new ships effectively establishing three brand new classes of cruising, entering the river cruise market in 2016 with Crystal Mozart, the first of five new vessels, as well as introducing its own Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Four more vessels, Crystal Debussy, Crystal Ravel, Crystal Mahler and Crystal Bach, arrived in 2017.

The 62-guest, all-suite 3,300-ton Crystal Esprit launched Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises in November 2015, offering intimate, exclusive, and immersive experiences with a boutique ambiance. The all-suite, purpose-built polar class yacht Crystal Endeavour will be the largest, most spacious expedition yacht in the world when she arrives in 2020.

Six-Star Symphony and Serenity feature grand lounges, lavish spas fitted in accordance with the principles of Feng Shui, extensive exercise facilities, complimentary golf, yoga and Pilates instruction, the only Caesars Palace at Sea Casino afloat, as well as expansive decks, two pools, award-winning cuisine and entertainment, and exquisitely-appointed staterooms, more than half of which have private verandahs.

The Crystal Experience

The Crystal Line-Up

Crystal Cruises far-reaching global journeys – from Asia, Australia and Africa to Europe and South America – offer abundant onboard enrichment and more than 2,000 experiences ashore, affording guests numerous choices and opportunities to make the experience their own.

Crystal River Cruises showcase the extraordinary beauty of the rolling riverside landscapes along the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers, as well as the medieval towns and modern metropolises that have shaped the region’s history. Sailings aboard Crystal’s state-of-the-art fleet of five all-suite, butler-serviced river ships focus on the cultural riches of the destinations, with further exploration of culinary, local and artistic perspectives in Germany, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Croatia and Serbia.

Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises cater to guests with a zest for adventure and the desire for a small-ship experience setting. Hosting just 62 guests, Crystal Esprit sails the less visited and elite harbours of the West Indies, Adriatic, Seychelles and the UAE and beyond with experiences that invite intrepid travellers to actively experience each destination.
