DRESS CODE: Throughout the day, Crystal Cruise guests wear a casual mix of active resort wear. Dining room attire is casual during the day; however, swimsuits are not appropriate. If you do not wish to change for a meal in the afternoon, alfresco dining on deck is available.

For days in port, be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. Check with your travel agent for special items you might want to pack for your destination and the time of year you are traveling.

Each evening on a Crystal cruise has a specific dress code, which applies to all public areas of the ship after 6 pm. Guests find that the occasional formal evenings create a special atmosphere in contrast to the other more informal evenings on board. The three codes of attire are casual, informal and formal. Typically, 10- to 14-day cruises have three formal nights. The number of informal nights is usually based on the number of days at sea, and casual nights are based on days in port and the time of departure.

Formal Evening Attire
We recommend evening dresses and gowns of fashionable length for ladies, and a tuxedo, dinner jacket or dark suit and tie for gentlemen.

Informal Evening Attire
Informal attire is appropriate for most evenings on board. For ladies, evening dresses, cocktail dresses or pantsuits are suitable. For gentlemen, Crystal Cruises suggests sport coats and slacks; ties are optional.

Casual Evening Attire
On casual evenings, a more relaxed attire is accepted, such as casual dresses and pantsuits for ladies, and sport shirts and slacks for gentlemen. Ties and jackets are not required. If you require a special diet or if you need special food items available on board during your cruise, please submit your dietary requests in writing to Onboard Guest Services Department no later than one month prior to your cruise, and confirm your arrangements with the Food and Beverage staff on the day of embarkation. There may be a charge for some special requests.

Age Restrictions

Crystal Cruises is unable to accommodate children under six (6) months of age without a waiver of consent signed by a parent and reserves the right to restrict the number of those under three (3) years of age aboard the ship. Any child under the age of eighteen (18) must be accompanied by an adult over the age of twenty-one (21). In addition, if the adult accompanying this child is not a parent, a 'Parental Consent Guardianship Form' must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and received by Crystal Cruises prior to sailing. Children under the age of twenty-one (21) are not permitted in the ship's casino or to participate in any monetary-based games of chance (including Bingo) on board.

Tipping

With Crystal’s all-inclusive cruising, complimentary gratuities for housekeeping (butler, stateroom stewardess and assistant stewardess), bar and dining staff (including specialty restaurants) are included.

If you would like to present gratuities for other service personnel, please do so at your discretion, or if you have any questions regarding gratuities, please contact the Reception Desk on board.

We suggest a 15% gratuity for Crystal Spa & Salon services, which may be added to your bill and charged to your shipboard account.
