Crystal Cruises, under the guardianship of the A&K Travel Group, has relaunched with a new name and vision: Crystal – Exceptional at Sea. The award-winning company is introducing a new website, branding, and two newly refurbished ships – Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.
These ships feature larger, updated suites with artisanal finishes, cutting-edge wellness facilities, and world-class dining and entertainment options. With over nine dining options onboard each ship, a leading spa, fitness facilities, and large pool, guests will be able to indulge in a range of experiences that cater to their needs.
The ships will embark on a series of itineraries that will take guests to incredible destinations around the globe, including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Canada and New England, Alaska, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
The suites and guest rooms are more spacious, with elevated detail and contemporary craftsmanship. Guests will enjoy marble quarried from Italy, modern furnishings, and fine cotton linens. Personalized, friendly service will be provided, giving guests a home away from home sense of relaxation. An award-winning complimentary food and beverage program has also been designed to bring authentic dining experiences to guests.
A&K’s ground arrangements continue the exceptional experience on shore, with unparalleled levels of service, exclusive access to the world’s leading guides, and meticulous organization. The spa and the gym will be revamped, and the Wimbledon courts will host both paddle tennis and pickleball. A refreshed approach to entertainment and events programming has also been developed.
Travel Advisors and guests with Open Deposits have exclusive access to an early booking window beginning Wednesday, February 1, before bookings open to the public later this month. The first sailings will be a Mediterranean cruise of Crystal Serenity on July 31 from Marseille and Crystal Symphony, scheduled to depart September 1 from Athens.
