7 Day Western Caribbean -Round Trip Cruise
The readers of Condé Nast Traveler consistently vote Crystal Serenity the number one cruise ship in the world. At 68,000 tons and capable of serving 1,070 guests, Crystal Serenity while the larger of our two ships, still maintains one of the highest space-per-guest ratios at sea, so you'll never feel crowded.
Layout: Costa Mediterranea cabins generally follow the outline of their Carnival counterparts, with the distinctive addition of a Grand Suite category. Nearly 80% of the suites and staterooms have an ocean view, and of those, more than 80% have balconies. Every cabin has adequate closet and drawer-shelf storage, as well as bathroom shelves; suites have a walk-in closet.
Amenities: Light-wood cabinetry, pastel decor, Murano glass lighting fixtures, mirrored accents, a small refrigerator, a personal safe, a hair dryer, and a sitting area with sofa, chair, and table are typical for ocean-view cabins and suites. Inside cabins have somewhat smaller sitting areas for lounging. Suites have VCRs.
Bathroom: Extras include shampoo and bath gel in shower-mounted dispensers. Suites have a whirlpool bathtub.
Worth Noting: Although connecting staterooms are somewhat scarce throughout the ships, balcony dividers can be unlocked to provide connecting access in upper-category staterooms. Eight staterooms are designed for wheelchair accessibility.
