After a multimillion-dollar refurbishment, the Crystal Serenity with a guest capacity of 606 and the Crystal Symphony with a guest capacity of 740, embarked on their inaugural voyages in 2023, marking a new era for Crystal.
Crystal’s voyages transport you to some of the most beautiful and fascinating destinations. Step off in cities buzzing with life and creativity; explore ancient neighbourhoods, as old as time and sail to shores that few will ever see; from Alaska’s icy coastlines, where glaciers calve into the ocean, to Komodo, Indonesia’s legendary island of dragons. At every destination, their network of guides can steer you between the must-see sights and the hidden gems, while immersing you in the local culture through experiences you will never forget.
Onboard, they continue to surpass Crystal’s superlative standards ensuring that from service and dining, to entertainment and comfort, your time will be nothing short of extraordinary. They offer butlers for every suite, complimentary world-class dining, superb theatre productions, and sophisticated suites. Being part of the Abercombie & Kent travel group means they are now exceptional on land as well as at sea and their shoreside activities are unique and among the industry’s best. Bridging shoreside discovery with onboard elegance — the lauded Crystal experience was voted #1 in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards; and the very best for food, service, nightlife and romance in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards.
Jann spent a week on the newly launched Crystal Serenity in July 2023 and it was fabulous; the service, food and entertainment were all outstanding. More than 80% of the senior management and crew are back onboard and all were delighted to see that everything is operating as it always did on Crystal. With the extensive remodelling, all has been improved / enhanced. There are so many choices and with the reduced guests, there is a lot of space and the service is even more personalised.
Embark on a voyage of discovery, embracing the thrill of a new departure filled with excitement.
