Concept and construction
Crystal Symphony was ordered in December 1992 and entered service in May 1995.
The ship was docked in Sydney Harbour for the Olympics in 2000.
The ship was refitted a second time in 2006. This process, which cost US$23 million, was the largest refit ever for Crystal Cruises. During this refit, Crystal employed over 750 external workers to join the existing 545 crew to ensure a timely completion. The refit was done in BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair in Norfolk, Virginia.
