Cruise Ships 2011, The Year In Review: Crystal Cruises
Crystal Cruises announced that beginning in 2012, their cruises will become all-inclusive. Gratuities and an open-bar policy including alcoholic beverages will greatly enhance this already luxurious line. In keeping up their high standards, the CRYSTAL SERENITY underwent a $25 million renovation during a two-week overhaul in Germany during July. The 68,870 gross ton ship was newly built in 2003. Used bedspreads were donated to the needy in Senegal, West Africa, while eight 40-foot containers filled with furniture, electronics and accessories were shipped to the Salvation Army in New Jersey. This is a line that is doing the right thing not only for its passengers but for the world.
