What a difference a day makes! In the wee hours, a likely rogue wave hit Crystal Serenity en route to Monte Carlo. Fortunately, nobody was hurt. Repairs have begun and the Crystal Dining Room is expected to be open for dinner. Many thanks to our wonderful crew for handling everything so smoothly and quickly.

At the time the ship was sailing in the Mediterranean and was heading to Monte Carlo, Monaco from Spain. Crystal Serenity is on a 13-day cruise around the Mediterranean which will end in Rome, Italy.
