A new look for the Crystal Symphony

How do you make one of the “best ships in the world” (according to Condé Nast Traveler) even better? Why, give it a $23 million makeover, of course. And that’s just what Crystal Cruises did to the Crystal Symphony.

Fresh out of dry dock, the Symphony should be looking better than ever. Its revamped staterooms have the look of a boutique hotel room. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, leather headboards, Murano glass lamps, and Rubelli fabrics.

The Tiffany Deck, the ship’s main entertainment deck, also got a thorough overhaul. New colors, construction, and lighting highlight the Starlite Club, Crystal Casino, Luxe nightclub, Bistro Cafe, and Computer University@Sea, as well as boutiques and shops.

The brand-new Crystal Symphony will be strutting her stuff through the Panama Canal and along the Mexican Riviera this winter before repositioning for Asia and Europe sailings. To book a cruise, call 888-799-4625 or a travel agent.
