Savor the Sailing of a Lifetime With Crystal Cruises

Looking for a bucket list voyage? Look no further than Crystal Cruises. Relax on a South Pacific cruise, or try a thrilling Antarctica itinerary. For something different, enjoy a Spotlight Cruise full of specialized entertainment and programs. Like customized excursions? They’re plentiful with Crystal, such as African safaris or even treks along the ocean floor. You can do nearly anything when you book a Crystal Cruises voyage.

Onboard, you’ll live in the lap of luxury. Experience the only Feng Shui-inspired spa at sea, a multiple award-winner. Top off your exquisite cuisine with unparalleled service, enriching lectures and programs, and sumptuous veranda staterooms and suites. Sail away on the crowning glory of Crystal Cruises — the Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony — the world’s most-awarded cruise ships.

For a more intimate getaway that holds just 62 lucky passengers, board Crystal’s stunning boutique yacht, Crystal Esprit. If you just want to leave the daily grind behind, experience paradise by seeing all that the globe has to offer on a world cruise.

Crystal Cruises is proud to feature exciting celebrity entertainers on board such as Carol Channing, Tommy Tune, Marvin Hamlisch, Joel Grey, Maureen McGovern, Lorna Luft and John Davidson – among many others – all part of the diverse spectrum of entertainment options available to our guests.

One stroll about the public areas on any Crystal cruise and you will discover entertainment at practically every turn. There's a headline show every evening in the Galaxy Lounge. There is frequently music in the Crystal Cove and a pianist performs nightly in the Avenue Saloon. A string ensemble entertains in the Palm Court during Afternoon Tea. Entertainment may also be found at various times in other venues including the Crystal Dining Room, the Starlite Club, the Stardust Club, on the Lido Deck and more.

Dining Options

attract
Choices are key elements of the Crystal dining experience, rich in menus and venues. Elaborate, four- or five-course menus are presented daily in several settings. The grand Crystal Dining Room features international cuisine and regionally inspired dishes based on the itinerary, and never repeats a menu, even on a 100-plus day World Cruise. This classic dining experience offers Classic Main, Classic Late and the new Open Dining by Reservation. With the most extensive wine cellars at sea (some 20,000 bottles), Crystal offers guests a comprehensive choice of wines, plus a new reserve list of 20 rare vintages. Further, the intimate Vintage Rooms play host to the ultimate gourmet experiences with the first-ever at-sea Wine-Makers dinners.

You may also choose the white-tie-and-tails tradition of an English Colonial Tea or the charming southern ambiance of Crystal's popular American Tea.

In-Suite & In-Stateroom Dining
Sometimes, after a long day's adventure ashore or a full schedule of activities on board, the very best option for dinner is to order in.

Leave your formal wear in the closet and dine in your bathrobe and slippers, if you wish, with a full selection of delectable dishes from your In-Suite & In-Stateroom Dining menu. You may also order from the evening's menu in the Crystal Dining Room, or request whatever your heart desires-Crystal's chefs will do their best to oblige your tastes.
