Known quite simply as the very best cruise ship in the world.
Crystal Serenity is consistently awarded the highest accolades by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, among others.
Christened in July 2013 by none other than Dame Julie Andrews, Crystal Serenity is just as gracious, glamourous and refined as her godmother. 12 years on and Crystal Serenity doesn't look a day older than when she was launched - thanks to a comprehensive and consistent refurbishment programme. Crystal Serenity's recent $17 million redesign - the latest in the ship's two year $52 million investment - boasts a chic and contemporary style featuring several cruise industry-firsts such as a chef's herb garden as part of vibrant "vertical walls" of greenery.
On board you will find a country club ambience, where it is not compulsory to don your top and tails or ballgowns but you can do if you so wish.
