The Ship

Experience luxury aboard the redesigned Crystal Serenity, an enclave of spaciously elegant interiors, designed to explore the world in extraordinary comfort, with superior six-star service. Crystal Serenity was reimagined in an extensive makeover, which revealed a luxury vessel of exceptional contemporary style, more suites, progressive design and the latest cutting-edge technologies.

The extensive dry dock makeover consisted of enlarging the guest to space ratio, making one of the most notable changes, the addition of Seabreeze Penthouses and Penthouse suites in a more chic and modern style.

Two alternative dining venues were also added: Silk Kitchen and Bar, which serves traditional Chinese cuisine and Churrascaria, a Brazilian steakhouse. However, Waterside, was refreshed with added notable acoustic panels designed to keep noise levels down, while creating a beautiful design and with the idea to give the venue the feel of a restaurant instead of dining hall. It has now open seating and more tables for two and four. Some of the technology enhancements include a new iPad ordering system, designed to speed up the entire order to delivery process.

The Stardust Supper Club experience was also an addition, offering a combined experience of culinary delights, music and a glamorous vibe offered on many Black-Tie optional nights.
