Crystal Symphony

Crystal Symphony is the smaller of the two magnificent luxury liners in the Crystal Cruises fleet. At 50,000 tonnes and with the comfortable capacity for 848 guests and 545 crew, Crystal Symphony is proud to offer an enviably high space per passenger ratio.

Eight decks and a recognisable sleek silhouette make Symphony an awe-inspiring sight to behold. At home in the world’s most glamorous harbours, the itineraries include the most idyllic ports of call throughout the globe. Along with her sister ship, Crystal Serenity, both are recognised as the two top ships in the world and a must for those looking for an ultra-luxury holiday.

Crystal cruises have given Symphony a $15 million redesign to newly style some of the ship’s key areas. It is the culmination of a $65 million thorough refit that has taken place over five years and has seen the restyling of every room on board. The very popular Avenue Saloon has recently been beautifully redesigned as has the plush Piano Bar, both fabulously comfortable and inviting to soak up the sociable atmosphere. Always up to date is the computer university @sea, with cutting edge technology for the guests to use for learning or for simply keeping in touch with family at home. Free, unlimited WiFi is also a fantastic bonus supplied onboard.

As one of the two best ships in the world, Crystal Symphony offers ultra-luxury cruising on a larger ship, with a fantastic amount of space per guest and a staggering level of dining, entertainment and sporting facilities.

Perfect Choice Dining offers the Crystal guest the best of all worlds.

You can choose to eat at the classic dining times, or if you prefer you can book a specific time that fits in perfectly with the shape of your day. On sea days you might prefer to dine early and follow up with a live show, and on port days you might choose to make the most of the destination and return to the ship as late as possible.

The Maître D’ will book your dining time in the elegant main restaurant - Waterside - to suit you, and these flexible times can be booked before your cruise or onboard.

Whatever time you decide to dine, you will find the cuisine extraordinary, the service superb and the complimentary fine wines perfectly chosen.

In addition to the main dining room, you can choose from a range of speciality restaurants;

  • Prego - serving authentic, quality Italian cuisine
  • Silk - infamous Nobu's Japanese-Peruvian style fare
  • The Sushi Bar - with a range of Nobu's favourite sushi dishes
  • Tastes - a delicious Asian-fusion restaurant
  • Churrascaria - tasty South American food such as ceviche and Brazilian steak
  • Marketplace - an open kitchen serving pastas and sandwiches
  • The Bistro - European style cafe
  • Trident Grill & Ice Cream Bar - relaxed dining serving USA favourites

The multi-million dollar refurbishment of Symphony includes the glamorous Hollywood Theatre with rich purple velvet curtains, contrasting with snow white luxurious seating.

The audio and lighting systems are top of the range and the acoustics are stunning. The experience is spectacular, with live shows individually created by an in-house production team.

Crystal Cruises are advocates of enhancing lives, and as such offer a great range of enrichment programmes. These could be language lessons, tai chi, or informative lectures to name but a few.

With all the over-indulgence on a luxury cruise, it goes without saying that the health and fitness facilities on board must be second to none.

The wraparound teak deck that sees joggers and walkers enjoying the sea views and breezes is one of the largest at sea. Golfers can also take advantage of the onboard driving range, and state-of-the-art golfing equipment.

The indoor gym has fantastic panoramic views and the spa facilities are fabulous; they will definitely leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.
