Ship demolished and re-built – the transformation of Crystal Serenity

When a ship is demolished, it is done by wielding 16lb hammers to smash into the walls and then cranes pulling it apart. Finally, the rebuilding starts. The process is fascinating. The mind that looks at a ship and says, ‘I want to rebuild that with more space and more style’, is incredicle. Crystal own planes, the finest river ships, the worlds most luxurious expedition ship and two cruise ships. This is the start of bringing the Serenity up to their standard. 

Look at all their ships on our menu. Ships and fleets.
