Crystal Cruise Line Review

Crystal Cruise Line was founded in 1990, is owned by NYK Line of Japan and based in Los Angeles,

Crystal Cruises offers the luxury niche cruise market on a large scale with 940+ passenger ships.

Crystal Symphony - 940-passenger features a sushi bar and a boardroom with wine cellar.

Crystal Serenity [2003]- 1,080-passenger ship houses a modern children's facility called Fantasia; and a teen center.

Pools

The ship has an indoor/outdoor pool as well as the standard centerpiece pool. Keynote facilities, like the Computer University@Sea and the spa, were expanded.

Cabins

Crystal Serenity offers a large number of balcony cabins; 85 percent of all outside staterooms have verandahs.

Upper range cabins are plush and spacious, however, lower-level cabins have a rather cramped feel.

Innovation

Crystal boast the biggest ships in the luxury class status as well with many more options of entertainment, casinos, spa and fitness facilities, activities and socializing.

Crystal was the first cruise line to offer boutique restaurants with innovative dining room options. Its Italian and Japanese restaurants onboard both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity are both outstanding. Make sure you make reservations as early as possible.

The latest dining innovation is the casual pool-deck dining at The Trident Grill on set nights each voyage.

Cyber cafes and upgraded children's onboard facilities and activities supplement normal cruise traditions of elegant afternoon tea, paddle tennis, casinos, activities and assigned main restaurant dining.

Suitability

Crystal is marketing as a multi-generational family cruise line of choice for well-heeled travelers. It appeals to a diverse group of passengers for Alaska and, occasionally, Caribbean, itineraries.

Clothing onboard is dressy, particularly on formal nights. On other nights, passengers tend to wear cocktail attire and elegant casual during the day.
