The Crystal Symphony pool is a relaxing oasis at sea, and the luxurious Aurōra spa is designed to indulge. Together with the expansive Fitness Center and outdoor sports facilities it’s like a floating resort.

Sun deck

Seahorse pool

Crystal Symphony’s sparkling swimming pool is surrounded by a glorious teak deck, sun loungers and shaded alcoves. It’s the perfect place to relax with a cool drink, not to mention a dip in the refreshing water. There is also a large, heated whirlpool.

Promenade deck

The teak Promenade deck on Crystal Symphony is a real treat. It encircles the entire vessel which makes it ideal for jogging, or even a leisurely walk.

The daily direction is posted on the rails; 1 mi. is 3.7 laps, 1 km. is 2.3 laps.

The Aurōra Spa

Aurōra is the spa on Crystal Symphony. It has a wide range of health and beauty services, tailored for ladies and gentlemen. Indeed, the spa specialises in state of the art light therapies. However, there also more traditional treatments like massage and a complimentary sauna.

I enjoyed a classic Swedish massage during my voyage; although that somewhat undersells the experience. It was, in a word, indulgent! Every sense was engaged and gently rebalanced. The treatment involved heat, aroma, sounds, light and of course pressure to ease out even the most stubborn knots.

By the time my massage ended I was in a state of relaxed calm; dare I say, bliss. Perhaps it’s unsurprising the Aurōra spa is among the most popular I’ve seen at sea.

Outdoor sports

Crystal Symphony has a wide range of outdoor sporting activities. There is a golf putting green and driving nets, as well as shuffleboard on the magnificent teak decks.
