Crystal Serenity

Crystal Serenity is Crystal Cruises’ largest ship, and was christened on 3rd July 2003 by Dame Julie Andrews.

Like the other Crystal ships, Crystal Serenity maintains one of the highest space-per-guest ratios at sea and features many of the same popular public spaces and amenities. Crystal Serenity is consistently awarded the highest accolades by readers of Conde Nast Traveller amongst others.

Crystal Serenity was Crystal Cruises’ long-awaited third ship, the first to be introduced since 1995.

The Crystal brand is known for their destination intensive itineraries and appeals to well-travelled North Americans. Crystal Serenity is recommended for upscale, sophisticated, well-travelled passengers who expect uncompromising service and attention. These passengers tend to prefer longer, more exotic itineraries with more days at sea.

Crystal allows liquor to be brought onboard their ships, but consumption is restricted to staterooms only. Liquor purchased from the onboard duty free shop also only allows consumption in staterooms. Crystal allows wine to be consumed in their onboard restaurants but with a corkage charge of $15.
