Featured Experience: Crystal Cruises

September 5, 2019


We love cruising. All-inclusive, luxurious, voyages to destinations around the globe... Who wouldn’t be a fan? Not to mention, it’s the epitome of stress-free travel.


Emerging from their longest-ever makeovers, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity feature spacious new suites and penthouses, more dining options, and enhanced service and space ratios among the loftiest in luxury travel.


For Crystal devotees, it’s more of what you loved before, only better.


For anyone new to Crystal, it’s what you would expect from the cruise line that has earned more World’s Best awards than any other.


As with everything Crystal pursues, a single goal remains: ensuring every guest feels at home upon the sea.





Crystal promises more dining experiences to tempt the most discerning palates, with the added luxury of menu enhancements at Prego and open seating too.


New venues aboard both ships will include Marketplace, a gorgeous social space for dining and conversation by day, turned Brazilian steakhouse — Churrascaria — by night; a contemporary Asian restaurant called Silk Kitchen & Bar; and a rebranded main dining room named Waterside, perfectly set to usher in “dine as you desire” open seating.




UMI UMA: Nobuyaki “Nobu” Matsuhisa’s only sea-going restaurants are found aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. These popular venues serving his acclaimed Japanese-Peruvian cuisine are taking on a new name that beautifully represents Crystal’s long-standing relationship with the famed Chef; umi uma is Japanese for seahorse, Crystal’s iconic logo.





Expansive and gorgeous, brand new butler-serviced suites and penthouses are aboard both ships.


Crystal Symphony’s Seabreeze Deck 9 will welcome two new suite categories — Seabreeze Penthouse Suites (SS) and Seabreeze Penthouses (SH) — each offering cutting-edge enhancements that herald things to come: large, luxury showers with body jets instead of bathtubs, and a unique entryway connecting two Seabreeze Penthouses to create a seamless accommodation for families and friends.



Aboard Crystal Serenity, on Deck 10, several staterooms will be converted to the ship’s spacious Penthouse (PH) and Penthouse Suite (PS) categories. With the conversion of standard staterooms to penthouses, guest capacity will be reduced aboard both ships: from 922 to 848 guests on Crystal Symphony, and on Crystal Serenity from 1,070 to 980 guests.
