Crystal Symphony to get $15m revamp

A $15 million refurbishment of Crystal Cruises’ smaller ship Crystal Symphony is to be carried out ahead of the peak summer sailing period.

The 960-passenger ship’s Avenue Saloon, Palm Court lounge, Galaxy showroom, Hollywood Theatre, Bridge Lounge and Fantasia and Waves ‘junior cruisers’ areas are to be redesigned.

Work on the 17-year-old vessel will be undertaken over 15 days at Germany’s Blohm + Voss shipyard, starting on June 1.

Other enhancements include new electronic “do not disturb” doorbells in all cabins – as installed on Crystal Serenity last May – and environmentally-efficient lighting installations.

Philip Ordever, vice-president international sales and marketing, said: “Our guests expect the finest of luxury in every element of a Crystal cruise. They have a keen appreciation for design and expect the very best in furnishings, finishes and fine appointments.

“On completion of this project, within the past five years we will have redesigned every room on board Crystal Symphony with great attention to rich, chic details.”

Crystal Cruises has spent more than $50 million on its two vessels in the past two years.
