Setting sail from Charleston

A visit to Charleston is like travelling back in time, so perfectly preserved is the town's 19th century ambience, and you'll often hear the clip-clop of a horse-drawn carriage ferrying tourists along the cobbled streets. Fort Sumter is where the first shots of the American Civil War were fired in 1861, and Charleston's famous Historic District is full of beautiful architecture that has survived from this era. It's a great place to just wander around, soaking up the warmth and charm of this quintessentially Southern city. Eating out is a real treat too, with the restaurant scene currently undergoing something of a renaissance.

Our tip

You may think the horse drawn carriage ride is a bit of a cliché, but it’s a great way to help to understand this town’s history properly.

Arriving in Los Angeles

The sprawling, sun-kissed city of Los Angeles needs little introduction. It's an energetic, creative place with cultural riches to match any world city, home to Hollywood glamour, the iconic beaches of Venice and Santa Monica, and affluent, image-conscious Beverley Hills. Yes, there is a lot of traffic on the 12-lane freeways that criss-cross the city, but there are also plenty of green spaces away from the crowds, and a vibrant restaurant scene. The City of Angels may not be everyone's cup of tea, but no trip to California is complete without experiencing this buzzing metropolis.

The Ship

Crystal Serenity at sea

Crystal Serenity Tastes

Crystal have repeatedly been voted the World’s Best and Serenity is arguably one of the finest ships at sea.

What we love

Crystal Serenity is Symphony's big sister and, like her, is not a new ship; but you wouldn't know it since she is subject to an ongoing refurbishment programme, with constant innovations such as the Outdoor Fitness Garden, which ensures that the environment is always perfect and the style contemporary. This is, in short, a ship constantly honed to perfection. But ultimately it's all about the unmatchable food and service.
