From Crystal Serenity’s Stardust Lounge to Your Home
We’re throwing it back with this week’s Crystal@Home programming with a special presentation of Crystal’s Stardust Supper Club on tonight’s Friday Nights at the Galaxy. Back to a time when Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald commanded intimate audiences of elegant clubs, crooning classic tunes as guests toasted glasses and dined on elaborate feasts. At 6 p.m. this evening, the virtual curtain will rise on a show headlined by Crystal’s own talented vocalists, musicians, dancers and bandmaster performing “Selections from the Supper Club”.
Following an introduction by Cruise Director and bandmaster Raphael Derkson and beloved Crystal guest chef Jon Ashton, the Crystal Family can settle in for the smooth strains of Karin Kovacova singing The Nearness of You accompanied by pianist Stephen Roberts. Crystal’s Ballroom Dance Quartet and Crystal Showband will bring the rhythm of L.O.V.E. and Derkson and Roberts will perform Cinema Paradiso. As with the onboard Stardust Supper Club – presented on black-tie optional evenings during Crystal Serenity voyages of eight nights or more – the vocal performances will be complemented by dance numbers from the Ballroom Dance Quartet. Tap your toes along with them and other featured performers to Hungarian Dance #5 (featuring violinist Irina Guskova) and Cheek to Cheek. The show will conclude with Kovacova and Roberts bringing a jazzy note to the screen with Bye Bye Blackbird.
Since 2018, when Crystal Serenity emerged from her dramatic drydock makeover, the Stardust Supper Club has dazzled Crystal guests. In the course of these elegant evenings, four-course dinners are specially prepared for the audience, who is treated to vocal performances from various singers and musicians, followed by dancing after dessert and into the night. Crystal’s Ambassador Hosts are on hand for guests looking for dance partners (a program that will be temporarily suspended initially when Crystal resumes service, but will be reinstated as soon as it’s safe to do so).
While we’re longing for the journeys of the future, we’re enjoying the music and glamour of eras past. Join us tonight at 6 p.m. on the Crystal Cruises Facebook page.
Crystal@Home presents some of travelers’ favorite elements of the Crystal Experience through virtual programming that fosters connection among the Crystal Family and inspires future journeys.
