Crystal Cruises introduce new Supper Club on Crystal Serenity
Crystal Cruises has announced it will debut a new Stardust Supper Club experience on Crystal Serenity when the luxury cruise ship emerges from her dry dock on 10th November. The new Stardust Supper Club combines the superb culinary experience for which Crystal Cruises is known with the glamourous vibe found in dining concepts of a different era. Set in the ship’s Stardust Club, the supper club will be offered on the first and final “Black Tie Optional” evenings on cruises of eight days or more.
During dry dock the Stardust Club will get a new look, with a new dance floor, lighting, bar finishes and refreshed décor as well as several enhancements behind the scenes.

Guests will enjoy a four-course menu of dishes from the Waterside restaurant as they dine to performances by Crystal Serenity’s Show Band and featured vocalists. In between performances, musicians will provide music throughout dinner, while the ship’s Ballroom Dance Quartet takes to the floor to perform dances where guests can join in on the dancing during dessert and coffee.
The Stardust Supper Club will open at 6.30pm, and guests can make reservations on board with the restaurant manager. The club can accommodate 108 guests and the experience will finish in time for the main production show in the Galaxy Lounge
“The Stardust Supper Club highlights the music and vibe of the exclusive clubs of the Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin heyday, and perfectly complements the elegance of a formal evening aboard Crystal Cruises ships,” said Toni Neumeister, Crystal Cruises senior vice president of hotel operations. “In keeping with our commitment to offer guests choices to make the Crystal Experience their own, this new dining and entertainment experience is an intimate alternative to the grand occasions found in the Crystal Dining Room, which will be transformed into Waterside during the redesign.”

Crystal Serenity Enhancements
Crystal Serenity will sail from Lisbon to Fort Lauderdale on 10th November for her first voyage after completing her extensive redesign. With an aim to elevate the on board guest experience, the award-winning ship is seeing a transformation of accommodations, dining options, technological advancements and public spaces.
Additionally, during the dry dock the Crystal entertainment team is installing a new Broadway-style production show called Crystal on Broadway, The Show featuring songs from the hit musicals Rent, Something Rotten! and West Side Story.
The ship is also receiving 36 new Seabreeze Penthouses and two new Seabreeze Penthouse Suites effectively reducing the ship’s capacity from 1,070 guests to 980 guests, while the number of crew on board remains the same.
Crystal Serenity’s Palm Court, a favourite spot on board for gatherings of all sorts, will see a dramatic transformation with more intimate seating. The lounge will receive new finishes, carpeting and more tables for two including a combination of cocktail tables and chairs, wingback chairs with footstools, sofas and coffee tables. The stage will be removed and relocated in an “in-the-round” concept along with a new modernised bar area.
The ship’s spacious enrichment facilities are also undergoing a redesign. The Computer University@Sea and adjoining classroom, as well as the multi-purpose Studio will receive new carpeting, seating and equipment, along with 70-inch TVs further enhancing the programming offered through Crystal’s Creative Learning Institute and Crystal Visions Lecture Series.
