Crystal Symphony to receive $15m redesign

Crystal Symphony will be re-modelled during a 15-day, major $15 million dry dock scheduled for June 2012. On completion of this project, Crystal Cruises we will have redesigned every room onboard Crystal Symphony within the past five years.

Taking place at Germany's Blohm + Voss shipyard, Crystal Cruises is redesigning the following public areas:-

  • Avenue Saloon
  • Palm Court lounge
  • Galaxy showroom
  • Hollywood Theatre
  • Bridge Lounge and
  • Fantasia and Waves - the childrens areas

Throughout the past two years, Crystal Cruises has invested over $50 million in its two ships, generating praise and industry awards.

Other ship enhancements include new electronic "do not disturb" doorbells in all staterooms (as installed on Crystal Serenity last May) and environmentally-efficient lighting

Further redesign details:-

Avenue Saloon

For this popular piano bar's makeover, Crystal is bringing back the designer who created the room's trademark intimate, "clubby" look: Kirk Nix, with LA's KNA Design. The piano, shutters and warm, jazz-era atmosphere remain but a room reconfiguration adds more seating.

Palm Court

KNA is also revamping the ship's signature panoramic lounge for high tea, dancing, cocktail parties and casual drinks with a view. A sleek, contemporary transformation brings the outside in, taking advantage of sweeping ocean views, while keeping emblematic room elements such as palms and wicker. In addition to a new entrance, the bar and dance areas expand with added seating and a larger, spiral-design dance floor with overhead ceiling feature.

Galaxy Lounge

Inspired by the glamorous theatres of yesteryear, Crystal is planning a grand redesign of its main theatre for live performances, Broadway-style musical productions and lavish entertainment experiences.

Hollywood Theatre

London-based Adfecto's redo of the ship's movie theatre is a visual throwback to the classic Hollywood film era, with all comfort and technical advantages of contemporary cinemas.  Plush leather armchairs with individual pull-out tables and an earth tone colour palette will enhance the experience.Technical updates include boosted surround sound audio processing and an enhanced lecture and presentation control system for enrichment speaker sessions. 

Bridge Lounge

The ship's space for cards, games and presentations receives a refined rejuvenation via all new furniture, lighting, window treatments and more

Fantasia and Waves

A new layout for both Fantasia kids play area and Waves teen video arcade creates separate areas for crafts, relaxation, screenings (two TVs), teens and computer usage (teens and kids separate).  Designer Adfecto has also chosen fun, asymmetrical furniture, FatboyTM bean bags and vibrant colours like crimson, sapphire and various shades of green.  New interactive white board, board games, video game stations and video project system further refresh junior activities options.  

In 2012, the 922-guest, 50,000-tonne Crystal Symphony and the freshly-designed 1,070-guest, 68,870-tonne Crystal Serenity cruise through the Middle East, Africa, Caribbean, South America, Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Black Sea, Panama Canal, Mexican Riviera, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, South Pacific, British Isles, Baltic Sea, Arctic Circle and New England/Canada.
