Crystal Cruises, the Los Angeles base luxury market unit in the Genting Hong Kong group, said it would debut a supper club experience on Crystal Serenity when she emerges from dry dock on 10 November.
“The Stardust Supper Club combines the impeccable culinary experience and style for which Crystal is known with the glamourous vibe found in dining concepts of a different era. Set in the ship’s Stardust Club, the supper club will be offered on the first and final Black Tie Optional evenings of voyages beginning with cruises of eight days or more, The company said in a statement.
“The Stardust Supper Club highlights the music and vibe of the exclusive clubs of the Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin heyday, and perfectly complements the elegance of a formal evening aboard Crystal ships,” said Toni Neumeister, Crystal’s senior vice president of hotel operations. “In keeping with our commitment to offer guests choices to make the Crystal Experience their own, this new dining and entertainment experience is an intimate alternative to the grand occasions found in the Crystal Dining Room, which will be transformed into Waterside during the redesign.”
Guests will enjoy a four-course menu of select Waterside favourites as they dine to performances by Crystal Serenity’s Show Band and featured vocalists. In between performances, musicians will provide non-stop music throughout dinner, while the ship’s Ballroom Dance Quartet takes to the floor to perform a couple of spotlight dances including one during dessert and coffee service where guests can join in on the dancing.
The Stardust Supper Club will accommodate up to 108 guests per evening, with reservations available upon embarkation with the restaurant manager aboard the ship. At a later date, reservations can be made via Crystal’s Priority Check-in and Planning Center (PCPC). Seating will begin at 6.30pm giving guests ample time to dine and dance before the night’s 9.15pm production show begins in the Galaxy Lounge.
