A New Design and Bespoke Menu Sets the Scene for an Exceptional Wellness Experience at Sea

When guests board Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony for their inaugural sailings this summer, a newly redesigned spa concept awaits. Inspired by the Goddess of Dawn, Aurōra will offer guests a destination for personal peace, and overall well-being during their Crystal voyage. With a stunning new design and sunrise-inspired signature treatments led by expert therapists, Aurōra will be an oasis for guests to rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.

A collaboration between Crystal and Tillberg Design of Sweden, Aurōra is set to be the most serene wellness destination at sea, with the design inspired by the gorgeous time of day when the sun begins to rise.  With the use of light-bright neutral colors, an illuminated fiber optic starlight ceiling, and organic materials such as Selenite, a natural salt crystal and silk brushed slate stone, the ambiance of the new concept offers guests an oasis ideal for rediscovering their natural shine and radiance.

“We cannot wait for our guests to experience the all-new Aurōra and wellness offerings onboard Crystal Symphonyand Crystal Serenity,” said Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations Bernie Leypold. “Our partners at Tillberg Design of Sweden have created gorgeous spaces reflective of energy, light and balance to help our guests truly embrace their most extraordinary self at sea.”

“Crystal’s spas have been completely reimagined,” said TDoS Partner & Cruise Design Director Iina Forsblom. “They offer a fresh, and welcoming design with new finishes, exquisite materials and a sophisticated color palette to support the new offerings onboard.”

Aurōra will feature the latest technology and treatments through exclusive partnerships with multi-award-winning, number-one British skincare brand ELEMIS and worldwide beauty experts Kérastase®. New treatments will reflect discerning travelers’ continued desire for of-the-moment wellness offerings. Facial treatments have been designed with the goal of renewal and estheticians will be able to develop customized high-performance, next-generation facials utilizing ELEMIS’ advanced BIOTEC technology.

Crystal Serenity will feature 12 treatment rooms and Crystal Symphony 10 treatment rooms, with male and female steam rooms, saunas and a relaxation room on both ships. At the Salon, beauty specialists will offer an ultra-personalized service with expertly trained onboard stylists who will help guests analyze the condition of their hair, allowing for targeted recommendations for treatments and at-home care options.

Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony are currently undergoing extensive refurbishments in Trieste, Italy. When the ships debut, enhancements will include larger, updated suites with artisanal finishes, refreshed specialty dining venues and cutting-edge onboard wellness. Guests will also find a new pickleball court and re-energized entertainment and events.
