PICTURES: Crystal Serenity gets swanky make-over

After just under four weeks dry docked in Bremerhaven, Germany, Crystal Serenity is ready to flaunt her fresh refurbishment.

Taking cues from her sister ship, Crystal Symphony’s make-over from last year, Crystal Serenity now has fresh new dining options, new spacious butler-serviced Penthouse accommodations, redesigned lounge and entertainment venues, and a new production show called Crystal on Broadway, The Show.

The freshly re-vamped ship will set sail from Lisbon on 10 November, on her first voyage since the completion of her redesign.

“The new open-seating dining gives our guests the freedom to dine when, where and with whom they want, while the new restaurant options uniquely showcase and celebrate the flavours of the world we travel in,” said Crystal President and CEO Tom Wolber.

“The new Seabreeze accommodations are in direct response to guest demand for more suites that, of course, include our personalised butler service. And the redesigned lounges will make spaces that are already favourites among our guests even more versatile and inviting.”

The dry dock, which began in Lisbon on October 14 as Crystal Serenity made her way to the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, marks the latest milestone for the expanding Crystal portfolio.
