Defunct Cruise Lines
Crystal Serenity was built at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard in France at a cost of $350 million, the ship came into service in 2003, and was christened on July 3 by her godmother dame Julie Andrews in a ceremony held in Southampton UK before embarking on her maiden voyage 4 days later.
On board the ship there is a good choice of cabins with 85% of the ship's staterooms feature verandahs offering 100% unobstructed ocean views.
Other features on the ship include a purpose-built movie theatre!, fitness and spa facilities, Two golf driving nets, a Las Vegas style casino complete with complimentary cocktails, and plenty of on board dining venues.
Crystal Cruises does not specifically cater to families travelling with children having said that the line does offer a quality children's program during summer, and holiday sailings when more families are on board.
