A Symphony of Luxury, Elegance, and Pure Enjoyment

Jan 9 2015

The ship entered service in 1995, and is the sister-ship of Crystal Serenity and Crystal Harmony. She is owned and operated by Crystal cruises and has undergone a fair amount of refurbishment since 2006. Many of the facilities, while retaining their original charm, have been re-modelled with more luxurious décor, offering spaces that are bright, modern, cool and cosy. The refurbishment was part of a five year plan, and cost a whopping $65 million, and it’s quite evident that no expense was spared. 

Crystal Clear Charm

Crystal Symphony is one of the top two cruise ships in the world. The Crystal cruise line has been voted “World’s Best” by the readers of Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveller more than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history. The charm of the Crystal Symphony lies in its immaculate service, top class accommodation, and an ambience that is contemporary, yet still retains a certain charm from yesteryear. 

Where the Symphony Will Take You

Discover your world as you explore amazing destinations like Alaska, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, Hawaii and South Pacific, the Mediterranean, the Mexican Riviera, the Middle East, New England and Canada, Northern Europe, the Panama Canal and South America.

What’s on Board

A popular venue on board the ship, the Avenue Saloon retains its 19th century feel and boasts comfort with velvet, leather, and mahogany wood. It’s one of the most popular venues on the ship and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink with friends or family as the piano man entertains you late into the evening.

Lido Café is the breakfast and lunch venue designed with a feel for the Hampton sea-side. The restaurant is open and airy with seating arrangements that are free flowing, allowing you to enjoy a delicious meal as you gaze out at the deep blue ocean with the sea breeze caressing your cheeks. The restaurant displays a number of food islands, each with their own serving of mouth-watering delights. The food islands minimise the queues and ensure you are able to select your courses at your own pace.

Once you visit the Trident Bar and Grill, you may end up staying there a little longer than anticipated. The open-air deck with large umbrellas and white washed wicker loungers and chairs is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the company of your fellow travellers. The tables are made with granite tops and decorated with colours of the sea, perfectly complementing the delicious and healthy menu on offer.

Silk Road offers the dramatic cuisine of Masterchef, Nobuyuki ‘’Nobu’’ Matsuhisa and Prego is a Venetian designed restaurant featuring the culinary expertise of Piero Selvaggio.
