first_imgCrystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity are being treated to a multi-million dollar ‘re-imagining’ in what the cruise line is calling ‘the Evolution of Crystal Luxury’.“Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity are the foundation of Crystal and continue to embody the cornerstones of the celebrated Crystal Experience,” said Crystal CEO and president Edie Rodriguez.“These ships have earned us not only acclaim from the world’s most eminent entities and publications for more than two decades, but more importantly, the loyalty of the world’s most discerning travellers and travel partners. We are committed to continuing their reign as the most luxurious ships at sea by investing in changes and updates that will far exceed our guests’ wishes.”While the two ships’ refurbishments are scheduled almost a year apart in 2017 and 2018, plans for both are predominantly streamlined, offering guests a consistently superlative experience on board whichever Crystal ship they choose to sail. As part of the extensive redesign, several staterooms will be converted into brand new luxurious penthouse categories to take the place of smaller staterooms; imaginative new dining options will be revealed; ships will be loaded with high-tech perks; and modern, elegant décor updates will be made in many public spaces.Both ships will also gain more of the spacious, butler-serviced Penthouses and Penthouse Suites. The Crystal Dining Room, the ships’ centrally located main dining venue, will become Waterside, the Lido Café will become the Marketplace by day and Churrascaria by night, and both ships will gain Silk, with a modern chinese menu.Crystal Symphony’s redesign is set for 19 September – 21 October 2017; Crystal Serenity’s for 14 October – 10 November 2018. cruiseCrystallast_img read more
