Crystal Symphony (Crystal Cruises) was berthed at Tilbury cruise terminal yesterday (23rd July 2016). She’s did a turn-around, bound for Guernsey, the Channel islands.
To see a ‘luxury’ ship Tilbury is quite rare. Crystal use the Tilbury terminal only very occasionally.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages ‘budget’ fleet are the regulars. Occasionally Fred Olsen vessel’s also make an appearance.
Symphony at 51,044 gross tons, must be one of the biggest ships to use the terminal.
She was built in 1992 and carries just 922 passengers, hence the ‘luxury’ tag.
She is the sister-ship of Crystal Serenity and Crystal Harmony.
