The Center For Disease Control (CDC) performs unannounced inspections, which are conducted twice a year and required for any cruise ship with an international itinerary calling at a U.S. port. Vessels are evaluated proper food handling, preparation and storage procedures, and overall galley cleanliness. Ships’ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.

Deck Plan  


Crystal Serenity offers one of the highest space ratios of any luxury ship. In November 2008, Crystal converted 12 of Crystal Serenity’s deluxe staterooms into eight plush Penthouses, further increasing the space ratio on the ultra-luxurious vessel. A massive  redesign of her 531 Deluxe Staterooms, Penthouses and Penthouses Suites, retail centers, expansive outdoor pool deck and other design projects took place during the Spring of 2011.

2013 Refurbishment

Crystal Serenity emerged from a $17 million redesign with chic new Crystal Penthouses (the coveted top accommodations) and dramatically transformed indoor/outdoor casual dining spaces, including the Trident Grill, Scoops ice cream bar, Tastes Bar, Lido Cafe, and Tastes restaurant, featuring a brand new global-inspired evening menu.  Cruise industry-firsts include a chef’s herb garden as part of vibrant “vertical walls” of greenery and 70 new PURE hypoallergenic staterooms.

From the top deck to its hull, Crystal Serenity underwent a comprehensive maintenance, with deep cleaning, mechanical updates, and environmental upgrades implemented throughout the ship’s interior and exterior spaces.  Palm Court boasts a new dance floor, specialty restaurant Prego was warmed with new colors, and even the “behind the scenes” Tender Boarding area reveals a welcoming new look.
