Founded in 1988 as Crystal Cruises, Crystal revolutionized luxury travel at sea with the launch of our first ocean ship, Crystal Harmony in 1990 (ret. 2005). Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity followed and, with them, came continued accolades for the Crystal Experience™, with noted acclaim for the supreme level of service found aboard the elegant ships. For almost 30 years we have seen several stylish redesigns that have kept the ships at the height of elegance and latest technologies, groundbreaking itineraries that have reached all corners of the globe, and innovative experiences on board and ashore that explore the culinary and adventurous elements of worldwide cultures. Crystal’s award-winning ocean ships have continued to evolve in luxury and excellence with their most extensive redesigns to date in 2017 (Crystal Symphony) and 2018 (Crystal Serenity).
