Crystal Cruises’ extraordinary commitment to excellence and quality of experience applies to guests of all ages. Space dedicated to children is rare on luxury ships, yet Crystal has designed its ships to accommodate multiple generations. Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity offer spacious staterooms in a range of categories as well as suites, third berths, and connecting staterooms. They also offer child-friendly cuisine, highly acclaimed children’s programs on select departures with activities for children aged 3–17, a Fantasia playroom, and a video arcade for teens. During holiday cruises, summer sailings, and other select itineraries, additional children’s activities are offered under the supervision of experienced Junior Activities Directors. Facilities Many facilities on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity were designed with young guests in mind. Fantasia has supervised activities, tables and chairs for board games, arts and crafts, giant padded cubes, puzzles, and large-screen televisions with kid- sized stadium seating. Teenagers can enjoy the Waves video arcade, which has Sony PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 kiosks. The library offers a selection of children’s books and videos for in-room viewing. Children can also see recently released films in The Hollywood Theatre. Activities Crystal Cruises offers children a broad choice of organized activities and entertainment options. A daily Surf Runner newsletter provides details on the following day’s activity schedule—tailored by age group—available on cruises that typically have many children (summer cruises, shorter itineraries, and holiday cruises). Activities may include scavenger hunts, story times, cookie baking, karaoke, movies and dancing. Dining Crystal’s executive chefs and other culinary staff can prepare custom dishes and items comparable to those found on shoreside kids’menus. Baby food, high chairs, and booster seats are available on request. In addition to meals in the Crystal Dining Room and specialty restaurants, the Trident Grill & Ice Cream Bar serves complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, and sandwiches as well as ice cream, non-fat yogurt, and cookies, throughout the afternoon. Tweens and Teens (13–17 years) Each ship features dedicated play areas for both young kids and teens. Fantasia welcomes children ages 3-12, with tables and chairs for arts and crafts, popular Sony PlayStation® game titles, a large screen television set and board games. A video arcade at Waves keeps teens ages 13-17 entertained as well.
