Crystal Cruises
  • Overview

Crystal Cruises are an ultra- luxury 6*cruise line with two fabulous ships to their repertoire – Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. With the highest ratio of space to guest at sea and unparalleled service, it is no wonder that Crystal are an award winning cruise line. Sailing in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean, Panama Canal, South America, Australasia and the Far East, you are spoilt for choice.

2015 is Crystal Cruises’ 25th Anniversary and there will be specially crafted anniversary sailings to celebrate a successful past and a flourishing future. Customers old and new will be welcomed on board with the customary level of welcoming graciousness and the service will be unwaveringly excellent.

Dining with Crystal is an experience in extravagant fine dining. The décor is sumptuous, the Champagne chilled to perfection and the caviar served on hand-carved mother of pearl. The Waiters will make it their duty to learn your special preferences and they will remember and anticipate your every need and desire. You don’t need to adapt to set meal times, instead you can join the classic main or late dining sittings or you can dine by reservation, entirely at your discretion. You can pre-book your individual dining times online before travelling or see the Maitre D’ on board. For a romantic celebratory dinner for two one evening followed by dining with friends the following night Crystal offer the ultimate freedom to choose. Enjoy the extraordinary cuisine, with fabulous flavours from around the world and time honoured classics, all served on fine china in the most beautiful of dining settings that would rival any top restaurant on land.

If you yearn to learn while you travel, Crystal Cruises have a ground-breaking opportunity for you to pick up new skills at the University at Sea. With cutting edge technology and first class trainers, you can join sessions at CU@sea and make the most of the 27” iMacs in the 24-hour lab.

Crystal Symphony was the first ship in the fleet and has undergone an extensive refit and makeover in 2012. Her sister ship Crystal Serenity recently also underwent a multi-million dollar redesign in 2012, and now both boast a fresh, chic and contemporary style with a casual yet cultured and tasteful vibe of southern California. Elegance and style abound throughout both extraordinary vessels, perhaps unsurprising for a cruise line that is consistently awarded the highest accolades by the readers of Conde Nast Traveller among others.

Although the dining experience is an event in its own right, there is yet more on offer for the discerning customers of Crystal Cruises. Lavish large scale West End style productions, cabarets, karaoke and dance clubs for theatre-goers and contemporary popular dance aficionados alike. The all-inclusive Crystal experience inspires an atmosphere of joie de vivre and there is an intimate and friendly vibe on board between like-minded guests. During the day you can relax on the teak deck beside the azure pool in the plush circular pod beds or venture out and take an excursion whilst in port to discover the fabulous sights and sounds that each delightful destination has to offer. This luxury cruise experience will define all others and as they say, the difference is “Crystal clear”!
