The Crystal Symphony has emerged from a $23 million dry dock, the largest ever in Crystal Cruise Lines’ history. The comprehensive refurbishment has transformed the ship’s staterooms and bathrooms, completely reconstructed a social lounge and casino, refashioned boutiques, shops and the famed Bistro café, among other improvements.



The new construction project follows a multi-million dollar renovation two years ago that debuted a brand-new Feng Shui-inspired spa, a new Vintage Room today one of the ship’s most popular features, an expanded Computer University@Sea, redesign of specialty restaurants, and complete refurbishment of all penthouse accommodations.



The staterooms aboard Crystal Symphony have been redesigned with the look of a chic boutique hotel. Distinctive new appointments include Murano glass bedside lamps, Rubelli fabrics and handsome leather headboards. Special LED reading lights and new 20” LCD flat screen televisions were also added. And, bathrooms have been reconstructed with a contemporary style that includes oval glass sinks atop granite countertops.

The Tiffany Deck, the ship’s main entertainment area on deck 6, has been completely transformed with new color schemes, new construction and new contemporary lighting that will create different moods as day moves into night. The Starlite Club on the Tiffany Deck now showcases a dramatic round bar in an open area that offers panoramic sea views and Swarovski crystals that sparkle on the window walls. The redesigned Crystal Casino features dramatic black flooring and a new black and silver color palette. And, a new nightclub, Luxe, features polished aluminum Phillipe Stark bar stools, glass Bizzaza mosaics and a dramatic new lighting system.

The popular Bistro Café has been enhanced with new decorative tiles, new wall finishings and fresh upholstery all done in a warm palette of russets and earth tones.And, the Computer University@Sea has been outfitted with all new equipment and features wireless access as well.
The Crystal Symphony kicks off 2007 with several Panama Canal and Mexican Riviera cruises and then cruises to Asia and Europe.
