Step aboard the newly-reimagined Crystal Symphony and join Palm Springs Life Fashion Editor Susan Stein on a 10-day Fashion & Style cruise in September 2018.

Susan Stein, fashion editor of Palm Springs Life and creative producer of Fashion Week El Paseo, is a busy fashionista in constant demand on land— and sea.

This September, she steps onboard the six-star decks of the newly-reimagined Crystal Symphony to helm its eventful Fashion & Style cruise. As Style Navigator, she presents a fashionable theme program amidst the autumn palette of New England and Eastern Canada’s runway of memorable ports.

With more than 30 years of industry experience, Susan uses her professional expertise to craft a series of up-close-and-personal fashion events for the luxe line. Afternoons at sea showcase fashion lectures and discussions, fashion presentations, afternoon tea-and-cocktail socials and paparazzi-worthy red carpet opportunities.

“Crystal Cruises continues to raise its own bar on luxury,” declares Stein. “And to sail on Crystal Symphony after the ship’s recent makeover is a real thrill. I mean, who doesn’t love a good makeover?”

Crystal Symphony recently emerged from her longest-ever facelift to sport even more beauty and innovative features.
