Evening Dining
Crystal Harmony, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity each feature an exceptional variety of dining options including the main Crystal Dining Room, two specialty restaurants and Room Service available 24 hours. The extraordinary cuisine for which Crystal Cruises is justifiably famous is offered in the elegant Crystal Dining Room, located in the heart of the ship just off the Crystal Plaza. The Crystal Dining Room is beautifully appointed, with sweeping ocean views by day and a magnificent ambiance at night. The gracious European-trained waiters and internationally acclaimed chefs provide regionally inspired dishes and classic continental cuisine.

The Crystal Dining Room offers the flexibility of two seatings to facilitate your dining preferences, and gives you the convenience of open seating at breakfast and lunch.

Entertainment

Dazzling Production Shows
Conceived and produced by Crystal's own creative in-house production staff, Crystal Cruises' Broadway-style shows are a highlight of every cruise. After dinner, stroll to the Galaxy Lounge to witness the talented Crystal Ensemble of Singers and Dancers in such spectacular original productions as Fascinatin' Rhythm, Million Dollar Musicals, COLE!, Curtain Call and many more!

The Galaxy Lounge is the venue for the award-winning production shows and a host of other evening performances. The showroom was custom-designed to offer perfect views from each of its seats, and features state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems.

Variety Entertainment
Crystal Cruises features at least four variety performers from around the world on every cruise. These may include a classical musician, a Broadway vocalist, a pop singer, comedian, juggler, ventriloquist, instrumentalist or other respected performing artist.

Music & Dancing
Before and after dinner hours, musical entertainment and dancing are offered in a number of venues around the ship. Each lounge features a diverse array of performances from classical artists to ballroom dance bands. Crystal's musical trio serenades you with classical melodies during Afternoon Tea and plays requests as they stroll through the Crystal Dining Room each evening.

Piano Bars
Soft piano melodies fill the Crystal Cove in the afternoons and each evening at cocktail hour. The Avenue Saloon, one of the most popular spots onboard, has gained a plethora of fancy new seating, including antique-style couches, a large red wall sofa, and embossed-leaf bar stools. Look around and you'll also find hand-tufted carpets, textured wall upholstery, and edge-lit glass shelves behind the bar.

Casino

Crystal Cruises exclusively features Caesars Palace at Sea® casino, run by the world-famous Las Vegas gaming operation. Each spacious facility houses blackjack tables, as well as mini-baccarat, craps, roulette, and more than 85 slot machines. The expert casino staff is employed by Caesars Palace.

A casino shipboard advance of up to $200 U.S. per person, per day, may be charged to the guest's shipboard account (up to a maximum of $2,000 U.S. per cruise). Please note that not all shipboard credits may be redeemed for cash-related gaming.

Guests must be at least 21 years of age to enter the gaming areas, or to play any monetary-based games of chance (including Bingo) on board.

Fitness / Recreation

Cruising is all about lifestyle: fine wining and dining, visiting exotic destinations and enjoying extravagant production shows. But today's guest is also interested in balancing the rich life of a cruise with health and fitness. If that sounds like you, then Crystal Cruises is your perfect vacation. From the wrap-around, all-outdoor teak Promenade Deck - one of the most popular features on all the ships, and one you won't find on many other large cruise ships - to a Spa with one of the world's best views, every Crystal cruise offers a variety of options for keeping fit and well.

On most cruises, a qualified PGA golf pro is on board to offer classes and clinics. There are driving range nets and a putting green, with a supply of practice clubs and balls. Crystal is pleased to offer Callaway® golf clubs on board; complete sets of Callaway clubs are also available for rental to use in ports where you may wish to play.

If golf isn't your game, how about paddle tennis or shuffleboard? You'll enjoy a full-size, enclosed paddle tennis court on the ship-top Sun Deck. For jogging, walking, stretching and fresh air, there's the Promenade Deck, nearly a quarter-mile around for walking or jogging. Symphony's two pools, the indoor/outdoor Neptune Pool and the full-length Seahorse Pool and adjoining Jacuzzi®, are located on the Lido Deck. Sunbathe, snooze and read while enjoying a refreshing drink poolside in the afternoon.

Build Your Sea Legs with "Walk-On-Water" Debbie Rocker's weighted vests have become one of the world's most popular exercise accessories. And now, Ms. Rocker brings these vests on board with an exciting new program developed exclusively for Crystal Cruises: "Walk-On-Water" (WOW).
Designed to maximize the health benefits of walking, the innovative program, featuring Ms. Rocker's revolutionary weighted WALKVEST® by Debbie Rocker, allows guests to expand their fitness regimen in idyllic settings around the world.

Spa

The Feng Shui-inspired Crystal Spa offers a wide range of treatments and Swedish massage, as well as aerobics, stretching and other exercise classes, an extensive line of professional exercise/workout equipment and a professional personal trainer. Sauna and steam rooms are located in the Spa, as are the massage therapy rooms.

Kids

Crystal Cruises' commitment to excellence and quality of experience does not end with the grown-up cruisers. Kids have a variety of great activities to choose from on every Crystal cruise! Crystal offer a children's playroom and babysitting services on all cruises. During holiday cruises and selected sailings, additional children's activities are offered under the supervision of experienced Junior Activities Directors.

The Junior Activities Program is Three-Tiered:
•3-7 year olds
•8-12 year olds
•13-17 year olds

Children under six months are not permitted on board without a signed waiver by parent(s).

Hours of Operation
Hours of operation vary depending on the itinerary and number of children on board.

Activities
Activities are determined by age and the number of children on board. On those sailings with Junior Activities Directors, a detailed schedule of events is created at the beginning of each cruise. Once on board, you'll receive Surf Runner, or Teen Scene, the teenagers guide to special activities, the daily newsletter for kids with details for the following day's schedule and other pertinent information.

Fantasia, the children's playroom, offers tables and chairs for arts and crafts, popular Sony PlayStation® game titles, a large screen television set and board games. Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity also feature a teenager's video arcade, Waves. The Library offers children's books and children's videos or DVDs for enjoyment in cabins.

Dining
Kids may choose from a special Junior Cruiser's menu, and Crystal's executive chefs and other culinary staff can prepare custom dishes. The Trident Grill serves complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and more. Baby food, high chairs and booster seats are available.

Additional Services
For a small fee, all vessels offer in-cabin baby-sitting. Guests should contact the concierge on board for this service at least 24 hours in advance.

Shopping

There are many components that go into most travelers' ideal image of the perfect vacation. Dining, dancing, sightseeing and, of course, shopping. Those guests who have visited the boutiques of Paris, New York and Milan will not be disappointed strolling Crystal Cruises' Avenue of the Stars, a 3,000 square-foot shopping area with shops offering a wide variety of merchandise carefully selected for discerning guests. The shopping arcade features the following shops and boutiques:

Facets
This luxurious and sophisticated shop contains exquisitely designed custom jewelry, as well as an exciting selection of world-famous collectibles and other gifts from around the world, including the Crystal Home Collection, featuring The Bistro's Guy Buffet porcelain tableware.

Apropos
This upscale boutique features best-selling fragrances and Lancôme cosmetics, as well as formal wear and accessories for both ladies and gentlemen.

Captain's Choice
Fine quality Crystal Cruises signature apparel, accessories, casual wear for men, as well as gifts for adults and children. Also on sale in Captain's Choice is a wide variety of convenience and sundry items, including film, candy and personal care products.

Dress Code

Throughout the day, Crystal guests wear a casual mix of active resort wear. Crystal Dining Room attire is casual during the day; however, swimsuits are not appropriate. If you do not wish to change for a meal in the afternoon, alfresco dining on deck is available. For days in port, be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. Check with your travel agent for special items you might want to pack for your destination and the time of year you are traveling.

Each evening on a Crystal cruise has a specific dress code, which applies to all public areas of the ship after 6:00 pm. Guests find that the occasional formal evenings create a special atmosphere in contrast to the other more informal evenings on board.

The three codes of attire are: casual, informal and formal. Typically, 10- to 14-day cruises have three formal nights. The number of informal nights is usually based on the number of days at sea, and casual nights are based on days in port.

Formal Evening Attire - We recommend evening dresses and gowns of fashionable length for ladies, and a tuxedo, dinner jacket or dark suit and tie for gentlemen.

Informal Evening Attire - For ladies, evening dresses, cocktail dresses or pantsuits are suitable. For gentlemen, we suggest a sport coat and slacks; ties are optional.

Casual Evening Attire - On casual evenings, a more relaxed attire is accepted such as casual dresses and pantsuits for ladies, and sport shirt and slacks for gentlemen. Ties and jackets are not required.

Themed evenings are often offered; the cruise ticket lists the special evenings on each cruise. Guests may wish to bring special attire or costumes for the Rock Around the Clock/Sock Hop '50s Night, and the Medieval extravaganza Excalibur! An Evening in Camelot.

Gratuity / Tipping

Crystal Cruises offers complimentary gratuities for services that include: housekeeping, bar, dining and Penthouse butler staff.
