Default Crystal Melody?

Has anybody heard anything more about the new ship Crystal announced last March? Have they announced a shipyard yet? Is the name "Melody" the official new name? What is the schedule for bringing it on line?

Strangely, nothing has been announced since last March, when the Crystal folks said they were building a third ship. There are rumors that another cruise line wants to buy them. But the same rumor has been around for quite some time, so who knows?

I was on the Crystal Symphony this past July and had the great opportunity to sit with the Vice Captain for dinner each evening. He told me the new Crystal ship will be built in either Norway or Germany, but most definitely not in either France or Italy. He will be the one who will work with the ship builders during the construction. They plan to start building in April of 2001 and they hope to get her out by Spring of 2003. The suggested name is the Melody, but nothing is certain about that as of yet. The new ship will have one more deck than her sisters and that deck will be penthouses. Deck 7 which is now staterooms on the Harmony and Symphony, will be public rooms on the new ship. There will be approximately 100 more passengers on the new ship.

Since you were just on the Symphony, could you tell me if the informal nights were dressy, i.e., did the men wear ties or just jackets?

I just got off the Symphony in Rome nine days ago. I would say that about one half of the men wore ties on the informal nights and that 95% of men wore tuxedos on the formal nights.

Crystal is a very dressy cruise line. On formal nights I only saw two or three men in suits as opposed to tuxes. On informal nights the men wore suits and ties, not too many wore just sport coats, it was suits. On casual nights the men wore nice dress pants and collared shirts, but no ties.

I will know more when I return from the Symphony in March. I'm going on the second segment of the world cruise, and I want to find out much more about the new ship. I want to be sure to get on the list for the maiden voyage.

Well, guess the Vice Capt didn't have the ear of corporate.

The new Crystal ship is, indeed, being built at Alstrom-Chantiers d'Atlantique.

"Melody" - if that becomes her name - will have "Fabrique en France" slapped on her hull!

This message base is old but by now everyone probably knows that the 3rd ship is being called Serenity. Strange they chose, for a cruise populated by mostly an older clientel, the same name as an adult diaper brand. (G)
