Youngest ship of the Crystal Cruises fleet ... and full of new ideas
At 68,000 tons and capable of serving 1,080 guests, Crystal Serenity, youngest ship in the Crystal fleet, is also the largest.
However, like her sister ship Crystal Symphony, she still maintains one of the highest space-per-guest ratios at sea, so you’ll never feel crowded.
Featuring many of the same popular public spaces as Symphony, Crystal Serenity also serves up innovation in the form of new dining venues like Tastes, Silk Road and The Sushi Bar, The Studio, and 85 per cent of staterooms have private verandahs.
Renovated in October 2009 at a cost of $25 million, Crystal Symphony offers Swarovski Crystal chandeliers, cashmere throws, sunken Philippe Stark Duravit Jacuzzi bathtubs, chic new pool deck furniture, works by famed Venetian artists, service islands with top-of-the-line pizza ovens and woks, and dozens more behind-the-scenes embellishments.
Special features include
- More space per guest than any ship in its class
- Complimentary bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees
- Large state-of-the-art Feng Shui spa
- Aveda products in all staterooms
- Sushi restaurant with the cuisine of acclaimed chef Nobu Matsuhisa
In keeping with Crystal’s successful approach of offering a range of luxury accommodations, there are 368 outside staterooms with verandahs and 82 outside staterooms with large picture windows.
Eight specially designed, wheelchair-accessible accommodations include two Penthouses, two staterooms with verandahs and four staterooms with large picture windows.
