Simpler Evening Dress Code Announced

Crystal Cruises – the world’s most luxurious cruise line, is to introduce a simpler evening dress code, beginning December 21st 2014 on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.

The new dress code is in response to guest feedback and will continue to see daytime attire acceptable on-board any time before 6 pm, with the suggested evening dress code now featuring only two preferences:

New “Crystal Casual”

A dressed-up version of casual attire, the new designation for evenings applies to all areas of the ships after 6 pm and includes dresses, skirts, dressy trousers and blouses or jumpers for women, and dress shirts and sport coats (no tie required), open-collar or collared polo shirt and dress trousers/smart trousers for men.

Black Tie Optional

More formal evenings boast the celebratory ambience of a special occasion, calling for dark suits with ties or tuxedos for men and formal cocktail or evening dresses, or formal evening separates for women.

The new dress code policy will see one “Black Tie Optional” for seven- to 10-night cruises, and two on 11- to 13-night cruises, although these estimates are subject to change depending on itinerary details. World Cruise, festive sailings and ocean crossings may be scheduled slightly differently. Crystal Dining Room attire is casual during the day, and those not wishing to change for evening dining may opt for dining on the ships’ spacious indoor/outdoor Lido decks. On Black Tie Optional evenings, jeans are not allowed in any dining venues or lounges, including the Crystal Casino.

With just two straightforward evening attire preferences, Crystal eases the stress of packing and planning and put the focus on the excitement of the voyage ahead, and with so many other cruise line’s changing the simple things in order to stay on-trend, it is no surprise that Crystal Cruises is following suit.

Aboard the all-inclusive, ultra-luxurious Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, refined elegance meets casual simplicity. With an emphasis on innovative product differentiation, the renowned Crystal experience is distinguished by classic service, abundant space, superior quality and extensive choices.
