Navantia Completes Extreme Makeover of Crystal Serenity
Crystal Cruises’ award-winning Crystal Serenity has emerged from an extensive redesign. The extreme makeover was done at the Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain.
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.
“We have completely reimagined spaces to create chic and contemporary public areas and accommodations that are as comfortable and inviting as they are dramatic and stylish,” says Crystal’s President Edie Bornstein. “Fine design is an integral part of our guests’ lifestyles, whether at home or away.”
Upgrades included the following:
PURE Hypoallergenic Staterooms – In a cruise-industry first, 70 deluxe verandah staterooms were transformed into hypoallergenic luxury accommodations offering a comprehensive, chemical-, and odor-free indoor environment.
Crystal Penthouses – The ship’s four top suites were redefined with clean lines, classic simplicity, and refined elegance in a dramatic ultra-contemporary remodel.
Lido Deck – New indoor/outdoor casual dining and lounging spaces with expansive ocean views were created.
Palm Court – The ship’s popular evening spot for dancing was refreshed with a new cherry wood dance floor.
Prego – The ship’s specialty Italian restaurant was warmed with new colors.
Tender Landing/Boarding area – This area was redesigned with a new faux timber floor with contrasting inserts and sycamore effect walls.
