Crystal Symphony returns to service after multi-million pound refurb

Crystal Symphony has returned to service following a multi-million pound refurbishment.

The ship, which was purchased by A&K Travel Group last summer, departed on its inaugural voyage from Athens on September 1.

Sister ship to Crystal Serenity, which entered service in July following a £17 million refurbishment, Crystal Symphony now boasts larger, revamped suites, 10 dining options, a paddle tennis and pickleball court and a redesigned fitness centre and spa.

Following its inaugural sailing, the ship will head east, calling at destinations such as Santorini, Istanbul, Abu Dhabi and Mumbai before spending the remainder of the year in Oceania, visiting Sydney, Auckland, Papua New Guinea and Bali.

A&K Travel Group chief executive Cristina Levis said: “We are so proud that Crystal Symphony has officially joined Crystal Serenity back in the water, signalling an exciting new chapter for Crystal.

“Two ships refurbished and back in service in under a year is completely unprecedented.

“The ship’s exceptional enhancements reflect our unwavering commitment to providing guests with inspiration and enrichment as they sail to the globe’s most coveted destinations.”
