The luxurious Crystal Cruises fleet offers guests the most choice available with a huge array of facilities and activities on offer, and over the next 3 years, Crystal Cruises will expand, effectively establishing three brand new classes of cruising in Ocean, River & Yachting – as well as Crystal Luxury Air taking to the skies. Crystal Cruises offer a variety of ultra-luxury cruising options that go above and beyond your expectations from ships, to yachts and even river cruises.
Crystal has always been a formal cruise line, however there are also informal nights now. Dress code in general is elegant/resort casual.
While suggested tipping guidelines had been published for years by Crystal ($5 per day for cabin stewards and waiters, $3 per day for assistant waiters, $5 per day for assistant butlers), Crystal has recently rolled gratuities into the overall charge. Crystal’s inclusive cruising policy includes gratuities for housekeeping (penthouse butler and attendant, stateroom attendant), and bar and dining staff (including specialty restaurants and in-room dining staff). You can leave a little something for over-the-top exemplary service. Crystal Spa & Salon services automatically add 18 percent.
