As Crystal Cruises prepare to relaunch later this month, the company have released details of two new exceptional suite categories, the Sapphire Veranda Suite and the Junior Crystal Penthouse Suite.

Both new suite categories have been created by merging existing smaller staterooms to create larger harmonious spaces. Indeed, Crystal Cruises enlisted the expertise of leading architectural firm GEM for the remarkable suite makeover.

These larger suites offer guests separate bedrooms and living spaces. Not to mention larger bathrooms with a walk-in shower and double vanity.

“We hope that guests will experience a feeling of being in their home.”

– Lorenzo Mortola, Managing Director of GEM

In a nod to the heritage of Crystal’s new co-owner, Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, the suites are decorated with the best of Italian flare. The linens come from a 150-year old Venetian company, while the marble in the bathroom is from the Italian Alps. The decor is unmistakably contemporary, though with a touch of classic in a palette of pastel tones and shades of grey and beige.

The Sapphire Veranda Suite

The Sapphire Veranda Suite measures up to 50 sq. m. / 538 sq. ft. (incl. veranda). It has a living area and separate bedroom, both elegantly furnished. There is also a private veranda, not to mention attentive butler service.
