Crystal Symphony is one of Crystal Cruises' luxurious and intimate cruise ships. This mid-sized vessel has a variety of fantastic amenities, spread tastefully throughout this spacious ship. You're sure to enjoy the elegant atmosphere, as well as the attentive service of Crystal Symphony's well-trained staff (made possible through a fabulous 1 to 1.63 crew-to-passenger ratio).

Exciting news concerning Crystal Symphony is that since its March 19, 2012 cruise it became an all-inclusive product! This means that the pricing of their cruises include: economy airfare (from select gateways), with transfers between the ship and airport; select fine wines, premium spirits and beers throughout the ship; open bar service in all lounges; pre-paid gratuities for housekeeping, bar and dining staff as well as Butler service in Penthouses; complimentary specialty dining; non-alcoholic beverages such as bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees; and so much more!

A $65 million redesign was completed aboard Crystal Symphony during 2012. Public spaces that were redesigned included the Avenue Saloon, Palm Court lounge, Galaxy showroom, Hollywood Theatre, Bridge Lounge, Fantasia and Waves " junior cruisers" areas, and the Tender Landing/passenger boarding area. Other new touches included additions to all staterooms, paddle tennis court resurfacing, sprucing of tender shuttles, more energy-efficient hull paint, galley updates and general maintenance and detailing of the entire ship, from propellers and boilers to the bridge and lifeboats.

While on a Crystal Symphony cruise, guests are able enjoy a variety of public spaces. Among the ship's lounges and bars are Avenue Saloon (signature cocktail and piano bar), the Galaxy Lounge (featuring live Broadway-style production shows), Starlite (round bar offering stylishly panoramic sea views, window walls embellished with Swarvoski crystals providing sweeping views of the beautiful ocean) and the Connoisseur Club. Other areas of interest available aboard Crystal Symphony are the casino, spa, swimming pools, fitness center, library, shopping promenade, as well as enrichment programs.

Crystal is also well known for having some of the best gourmet cuisine and fine dining options at sea. With a hand-selected team of chefs respecting three essential principles: the highest-quality ingredients, classical French preparation, and abiding passion for their craft, critics to agree, Crystal's cuisine is the finest at sea. The restaurants of Crystal Symphony are the Silk Road (serving Japanese foods with distinct Peruvian and European influences), Prego (featuring authentic Italian cuisine, paired with a fantastic wine list, served at Piero Selvaggio's restaurants) and The Vintage Room (cuisine with attributes of each vintage, with exceptional selections from famed wine-making regions). Trident Bar & Grill is a casual venue that serves deliciously light fare including made-to-order grills, wraps, melts and gourmet pizzas! On select evenings, the Trident Grill offers casual dinners at a relaxing setup around Neptune Pool with exciting selections served in a comfortable ambiance. An extensive 24-hour room service menu is available for those that would like to dine in the comfort of their suite or stateroom. It is this spark of international creativity - the Crystal touch - that turns a fine dish into a masterpiece!
