One of the most highly styled and spacious ships in the world, Crystal Serenity offers fabulous food and flawless, European style service in some of the most luxurious surroundings of any ship afloat.
The two-level Crystal Cove features a small waterfall, bar and glass piano, with shops and an elegant bistro on the upper level. This 68,000 ton ship carries a maximum of 1,080 passengers on a hull that could easily pack in twice as many people.
This creates a sense of space, style and luxury almost unique to Serenity. There is a fabulous Palm Court observation lounge, filled with light from floor to ceiling glass windows, a small but highly styled casino, and a disco for the dedicated night owls.
In keeping with Crystal Cruises all-luxury style, suites are an especially strong point, all being outside and the great majority having balconies. The pool areas include one with a retractable glass roof and lots of elegant wicker furniture. Fixtures and fittings everywhere throughout this sumptuous vessel are the finest quality at every level.
Crystal’s education and enrichment programme is one of the most comprehensive at sea, with outstanding quality guest lecturers. Entertainment is geared to complement the style of the ships, with superb individual singers, pianists and excellent live bands.
Crystal Serenity is a beautifully served, distinctive and elegant luxury cruise ship, ideal for pampering yourself and your loved ones in surroundings that make relaxation an art form.
