Crystal Cruises Enhances On Board Experience With ETRO In-room Amenities

Crystal is First Line to Bring New Luxury Spa Products to Guest Staterooms; and to Offer Treatments on Temperature Controlled System

LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2015 – Ever expanding its lineup of luxurious offerings to discerning travelers aboard its award-winning ships, Crystal Cruises is partnering with ETRO Spa products to introduce plush new amenities for guests to enjoy in their staterooms and penthouses while also introducing Medi-Spa Cosmetic Treatments to its menu of services in the Crystal Spa and Salon.  In addition to the extensive selection of specialty massages, acupuncture, body wraps and facial services, three new state-of-the-art, noninvasive procedures will be available to those seeking to reduce signs of aging and improve the condition of their skin.  Further pioneering spa offerings at sea, Crystal will unveil a Quartz Crystal treatment bed this month, becoming the only ship to feature the innovative technology.

“One of the perks of vacation – other than the memorable experiences one enjoys – is the revitalized and rested look that comes after a week or more of pampering and relaxation,” says Crystal President and CEO Edie Rodriguez.  “Along with the indulgent luxuries that our guests enjoy aboard our ships, these services take that rejuvenation to the next level, helping travelers look as refreshed as they feel following a Crystal cruise.”

Medi-Spa Services

  • Target Wrinkle Treatments – for the softening of frown and forehead lines and crow’s feet, with visible results within days;
  • Dermal Filler Treatment – to restore youthful contours on the lower face, focusing on smile, lip and marionette lines; replacing lost fullness; and
  • Thermage® CPT – the premier non-invasive skin tightening therapy, utilizing radiofrequency to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin on the face, neck and abdominal region.

All Medi-Spa consultations and treatments are performed by a fully-licensed medical doctor. Additionally, guest can attend informational seminars on select days during voyages, ranging in topics from non-surgical facelifts and liquid facelifts to the latest in facial rejuvenation and skin tightening.  Guests are welcome to attend these complimentary seminars and arrange private consultations with the doctor during their cruise.

Quartz Crystal Treatment Bed

Making its debut on Crystal Serenity, the MLX Quartz bed comprises a base made of alpha-quartz sand, which can be selectively heated to varying temperatures, helping to alleviate pain and enhance comfort. The malleable sand surface is covered with a hygienic polyurethane-coated sheet to prevent it from adhering to skin, while also promoting ergonomic positioning for massage and other therapies.  Warm crystals mold and shape around the body helping to release muscle tension, detoxify and promote a deeper state of relaxation.  With the addition of the new Quartz Crystal bed, Crystal will also add two new specialty massages to its indulgent menu of services: a hot mineral body massage and a poultice-powered muscle release massage, both utilizing the bed’s technology.

ETRO Designer Amenities in Staterooms

Like Crystal, the famed Italian luxury brand is renowned for its elegant design and exceptional quality. Among the new ETRO products available to guests during their cruise will be bathrobes, slippers, shower cap, shoe mittens and sewing kits.  Additionally, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bath salts and other toiletries will be added, available in varying unisex fragrances. The ETRO luxury amenities will be available in phases beginning in Penthouses and above on Crystal Symphony’s August 16 Baltic sailing and Crystal Serenity’s August 20 Mediterranean and Western Europe voyage.

The Crystal Spa and Salon aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity boast numerous options for guests seeking to treat themselves, whether a brief respite in the sauna and steam room, or an indulgent three-hour body work package.  The new Medi-Spa treatments and other spa services can be booked prior to sailing through Crystal’s Priority Check-in and Planning Center (PCPC), or on board with the spa hostess.

Crystal Cruises is the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line, having earned more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history.  Crystal Cruises has won “World’s Best Cruise Ship” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader Choice Awards for 21 years; voted “World’s Best Large Ship Cruise Line” by Travel + Leisure readers for 20-consecutive years; the “Best Luxury Cruise Line” by Virtuoso; and both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity were rated as two of the “Top 5 mid-size ships” by the 2015 Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships.
