    The staff are so attentive and seem happy to be there for us. The food continues to exceed all expectations. We love the bridge program, but this cruise, the instructors were not as good as Jeff and Ginny. We love the lectures!!! Keep up the good work in finding such interesting speakers. Th 2 Lunch buffets in the lobby were superb in looks and taste! I have never seen such a beautiful display of food anywhere before! I would love to thank Benjamin, Alvin, Jerwin, Moukesh, Carlos in the Palm Court, and Lillijana, our cabin attendant for their excellent and cheerful assistance at all times!!!
    Pros Food is fabulous! Staff is wonderful beyond belief! Love all inclusive. Love the bridge program, love the free WiFi.
    Cons Tom and Marsha were not the best bridge teachers. I really miss the printed newspaper every day. I felt very uninformed leaving the ship. Would like more news on the TV and less fluff!

    All in all a great experience, a wide variety of venues to enjoy and five star service from all of the staff. One draw back for some might be the size of the standard suites, from my limited cruise experience they seemed a bit small. The PH and PS suites however are very spacious and well appointed. I would highly recommend this ship.
    Pros Great service. Top quality food and drink. Multiple entertainment venues.
    Cons Surcharge for premium wines and liquor a bit excessive. Main dining room a bit too crowded.

    Full Review
    We sailed Princess in 2005 and I had no desire to cruise again. We chose this cruise to Alaska for our 20th wedding anniversary and after much research, decided to go for it. We booked a Penthouse with Verandah and what we thought was the best itinerary. Crystal NAILED it! Yes, the ship is showing a little wear and tear but in 2018 they are going through a $57 million renovation. It still was nicer than I expected. The stateroom was spacious and well appointed. Our butler, Neil, was a true delight. Our balcony was the perfect spot for morning coffee, afternoon wine, evening sunsets, and more. The food was very good and we are foodies with high expectations. The only disappointment was Prego and I don't know what was going on that night but it was not good at all. Otherwise, Silk Road and the MDR were excellent and Tastes - OMG! SO GOOD for dinner! Lunch is nothing special for lunch at Tastes but dinner is a whole different story. Hidden Gem! Lastly, be sure your Alaska itinerary includes the Hubbard Glacier.

    Full Review
    Crystal is consistently the best. The ship is truly beautiful. The food is as delicious as it is beautiful. Presentation is really special. However, I would suggest that at the buffet the people should not be allowed to serve themselves using tongs or spoons. Staff should serve to prevent transmission of communicable virus, etc. The variety of entertainment was very good. The male guest singer who sang songs from Broadway and more was terrific. The ensemble lead singers were excellent, as were the dancers, particularly the males. However, the shows featuring the ensemble singers and dancers are not of the same quality as your shows of old. You need to step up your game and go back to quality shows like Cole, Harmony of Nations (the around the world show), the 50's rock and roll show, to name just a few. This is the only area where I was disappointed.
    Pros Beautiful ship with excellent service!
    Cons Entertainment is not as good as it used to be. Bring back old shows.

    I chose this cruise for its itinerary more so than for the life on board the ship, which was really geared towards an older crowd. So, while life on board the ship was a little slower paced on board than I prefer, every aspect of the service was excellent. The food was top-notch and with more options even at the main dining room than I had come to expect from other cruise lines. There were no lines for anything and always a pool chair available.

    This is our third cruise with Crystal, and we plan to cruise with them again. We have especially been impressed with the quality of their lectures. When we cruised Glacier Bay in Alaska, they brought National Park Rangers on board to talk about the glaciers. When we cruised by Antarctica, they brought scientist from the research station on board to tell us about their work. We've not experienced that with other cruise lines.

    14 Day Caribbean Cruise

    11/2016 Caribbean
    Excellent cruise as always. Great Weather and fairly smooth seas.
    Full Review
    We spent 14 days in early November stopping at ports in the deep Caribbean. Only one port could easily have been left off the itinerary. That was Samana in the DR. It became the big Joke around the cruise. Also, The ship visited St. Barth on a Sunday when almost every store is closed. Many clients commented on this asking why did Crystal schedule it on that day when they could have eliminated Samana or switched  days.
     Entertainment on this cruisewas the best of any of the 11 Crystal Cruises I have sailed on. the Show Band and singers were top notch. Love Hector Olivera, the organist was superb as was Bill Miller and Cheri Steinkellner, both lecturers
    Pros The ship has not changed much since the takeover of Genting. Food and service remain on high levels. Best part about the Serenity is Tastes which is open at night for a casual dinner.
    Cons Nothing but the problem with the stop in Samana

    Crystal Serenity Review

    10/2016 US and Caribbean
    From the beautiful common areas to the excellent food, service, entertainment, and guest lecturers we could not have been more pleased. The entertainment was on a different level than most ships and the food equal or better than most. There is a great emphasis on ship activities, particularly on sea days. While this ship is larger than Regent and Silversea ships, we were surprised that we rarely ran into anyone in the passageways and we never had to wait in line. Crystal includes all gratuities, wine, spirits, and open bar service. If entertainment, food and activities are important to you, you might want to consider Crystal.
    Full Review
    The main reception area has a large two-story atrium with a stained-glass dome, a wonderful piano bar and waterfall. There are three sets of elevator banks forward, midship and aft. They were rarely busy. While the ship was built in 1995 it has gone through a number of ongoing refurbishment the late was a major overhaul in May 2016. The Crystal Cove on this deck is a very comfortable bar that often has a pianist playing or on our trip there also was a four-piece violin/cello ensemble that played before and after dinner. The spiral staircase winds up to deck 6, which is the main public deck. Here you will find 3 good-sized shops. One has fragrances, cosmetics, accessories and a selection of clothing in a wide spectrum of prices. The second and third shop primarily are jewelry. During our sailing they had several jewelry shows and trunk shows. Entertainment/Internet Next to the shopping is a quality movie theater with very comfortable seats and excellent sound system, featuring two recent release movies per day. Religious services were also held here. On this floor there is a good sized casino with blackjack, roulette, craps, 3 card poker, mini-Baccarat, Texas Hold ‘Em poker, and slots. Most evenings it was really hopping. Outside the casino is the Galaxy show lounge, which is quite comfortable and plenty of room for each show as well as lectures. There are two shows, one for early seating and one for late. The entertainment is outstanding. On our trip there was a virtuoso violinist, a ventriloquist, a magician, a comedian, a professional dance team, and full production company. The quality of the entertainers and the costumes and sets for the Broadway-style shows were incredible. We don’t usually stay for all of the entertainment and on this cruise we didn’t miss one. Also on deck 6 is the Stardust Club where they have daily dance lessons, bingo, some of the guest lectures, and later in the evening a dance band. All cruises have ambassador dance hosts for those interested in a dance partner. Adjacent to the Stardust Club are the Connoisseur smoking/cigar bar and the Avenue Saloon which is a beautiful bar with dark woods where there was a pianist from Ireland playing before and after dinner and quite late into the evening. There is a Disco bar called Pulse that also has karaoke most evenings and was quite popular. Further down the hall is the photo studio where you can view pictures taken either at dinner or on shore. They also have a machine where you can print individual pictures from your memory chip. I found the photographers to be quite helpful in assisting guests learn how to use their equipment or answering questions. On deck seven is the Computer University at Sea, which is open 24 hours per day. This was manned from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. every day and the staff was very helpful. They also had complimentary computer classes including digital imaging and desktop publishing. Private instruction is available for $75 per hour. Wi-fi is available throughout the ship and each guest has one hour complimentary internet per day. If you don’t bring your laptop, you can rent equipment for $5 per day to use in your suite. iPad rentals are available for $1.00 per hour. Internet access speed is better than most ships I have been on, and there are four plans to pick from. There is a flat $19.95 charge for copying as many digital images as will fit on a single compact disc. Crystal has a complimentary digital entertainment system with access to movies on demand, lectures, shore excursion information, and worldwide news on your tablet or smart phone. You can download PressReader and Swank Media Player on iTunes and the Google Play Store prior to arrival at the ship to avoid paying internet charges to set up these required programs. Restaurants There are four primary dining rooms. There are two seatings in the Crystal dining room, one at 6:00 and the second at 8:30. There are tables for 2, 4, and 8. Tables for two can be requested but will not be confirmed until day of embarkation. We had requested a table for two and when we got to our suite it had already been assigned. However, the maitre d’ was available the day of embarkation should you care to discuss seating arrangements. They also offer Dining by Reservation where you can reserve your time and size of table after final payment is made. These reservations must be made in advance, although I found the maitre d’ quite accommodating onboard. We found the food and service to be excellent. There is a Modern Cuisine menu based on contemporary cooking techniques as well as their Crystal Classics offerings. There was always a variety of meat, poultry, and fish options as well as vegetarian selections and pastas. The rack of lamb, filets, and lobster were exceptional. Often the headwaiter prepared a specialty dessert such as bananas foster, cherries jubilee or baked Alaska on a moving cart close to the table. However, the pastry chef was outstanding and I found plenty of tempting offerings on the main menu. They offer low fat or desserts for diabetics. Wine and spirits are included. If you bring a bottle of your own wine, there is a $15 corkage fee. Lunches in the Crystal dining room were exceptional and we ate there most of the trip. The food and window views could not be beat. There is open seating breakfast and lunch in the Crystal dining room and we found that if you came within the first 30 minutes you could always get a table for two on the window. Interestingly there are tables for two lining both sides on the restaurant on the windows. There are also tables for two along the center walls. While dinners are more restrictive, I did find that people invited others to their table when tablemates were using alternative restaurants and of course you can always join whoever you would like for breakfasts, lunches, and alternative restaurant dining. There are two specialty restaurants. Both require reservations and there is one complimentary per each 7 days. Silk Road, which is an Asian restaurant based on recipes of Nobu Matsuhisa had great sushi as well as main dishes. There are 8 seats at the Sushi Bar or you can be seated at a table. Prego, which is the Italian restaurant, had equally good food and service. The Lido has breakfast and lunch buffets with both inside and outside dining. At breakfast they had an omelet station and at lunch a carving station. Inside is air-conditioned, which I preferred. We really liked the wide variety and the restaurant is light and airy. Adjacent to the Lido Café is an area where they have pizza ovens and make custom pizzas for guests. There also is a chef making stir fry dishes. The Trident Grill is an indoor grill with hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken, a wonderful steak sandwich and a salmon burger. We also enjoyed the sweet potato fries. Adjacent is a great ice cream bar featuring Ben & Jerry’s ice cream with a number of selections that change daily including both yogurt and ice cream for diabetics. The make their own waffle cones which I couldn’t resist. Daily there are several types of fresh baked cookies on the bar that are restocked all daylong, another treat I couldn’t resist. There is a very nice seating area here with a retractable glass roof that is opened during nice weather and often people would sit here to read or play board games. Adjacent to the Trident Grill is Tastes that offers Global inspired Cuisine in partnership with Sapphire Restaurant in Laguna Beach. It is casual dining at lunch or dinner and offers dishes such as Crispy Tostada Ceviche, Peruvian Hamachi, Scottish Cured Salmon, Spanish Morcilla Sausage, Greek Octopus Salad, and California Street Tacos. There were several special buffets throughout the cruise. One was an American buffet, another was Asian. Both had incredible amounts of great food including desserts. On Deck 6 there is a Bistro that was quite popular and very well done. All beverages are complimentary. It is open daily until 6 p.m. and serves all types of coffee and tea. This includes cappuccino, espresso, and iced lattes. They also have fresh fruit and snacks all day with table service and very pretty china. If you prefer to take your drink with you they have “to go” cups similar to Starbucks. 24-hour room service offers a wide variety of selections. During dinner hours, you can order from the dining room menu and have it delivered to your suite. What I found unique is that your cabin steward took and brought your room service order during their working hours between 6:45 a.m. and 9 p.m. It is not necessary to tip. There is afternoon tea in the Palm Court, which is the observation lounge at the front of the ship on deck 12. A four piece violin/cello ensemble played at tea each day. Tea included the traditional tea, coffees, and pastries except for the Mozart tea where the wait staff dressed in period costumes and the musicians played Mozart music. They do not offer Trivia. Suites The standard ocean view staterooms and verandah staterooms are smaller than most on Regent and Silversea. The ocean view staterooms are 226 sq. feet with a large picture window and the veranda staterooms 269 sq. feet including the veranda. The ocean view staterooms are located on the promenade deck where there is a walking track right outside the window. You can see out but those walking on the track cannot see in your stateroom. The veranda staterooms have a good size balcony with 2 lounge chairs and a table. The first 10 staterooms at the front of the ship and the last 10 staterooms in the aft section have a slightly deeper balcony due to the side metal panels on the ship but the balconies have metal from about the waist down and open rungs above the waist. All other veranda staterooms have metal from about the knee down and open rungs above the knee. The rooms are beautifully decorated. There is a nice HD flat screen TV with a DVD player. There are 16 movies per day, several news channels, the Morning shows, shore excursion channel, guest lectures rebroadcast, and music selections as well as typical ship channels. Below the TV is the mini-fridge at counter top level which is stocked daily with your choice of non-alcoholic beverages. You also can request beer, wine or spirits in your room. There are 8 drawers in the wall unit including a safe. There are both 110 and 220 plugs at the desk, although only one of each. My stateroom has a multi-plug, but you might bring one just in case. On the side is a side cabinet where there are high ball and wineglasses as well as a bottle opener and drink stirrers. You can bring alcoholic beverages onboard and use in your suite without any charge. If you plan on bringing wine onboard there is a $15 corkage fee in the restaurants. There is a 2 seat leather sofa. The bed is quite comfortable and there is a pillow menu where you can select from a list of pillow types. There are great reading lamps on each side of the bed as well as end tables with lamps. All lighting is part of a one touch lighting system that will dim lights or turn them off totally. They also have a “Do not Disturb” or “Clean up my Room” electronic bell system. No more paper door tags. An alarm clock is provided as well. The closet has a shoe rack and 3 drawers inside. It is a closet with two sliding doors, which I found to be noisy when one was resting in bed. There is a 2000 watt hand held hairdryer, 2 mohair blankets, robes, slippers, shoe horn, clothes brush, umbrella, laundry bags, etc. There is a full-length mirror outside the bathroom. The bathroom is a bit narrow for two. There is a tub with shower. They have two nice sink bowls, a magnifying mirror, 1200-watt hairdryer on the wall, plug for shaver, good space and shelves, as well as Aveda toiletries. The tub has a grab bar and a sliding showerhead to adjust the height for tall or petite guests. During the remodel in 2014, 48 PURE hypoallergenic staterooms were added. These have an air purifier that filters out 99.9% of all airborne impurities. The next size stateroom is a Penthouse with verandah, which is 403 square feet. What I like about this one is there are a sofa, a walk-in closet, and a larger bathroom with a separate shower and Jacuzzi tub. The next size is the Penthouse suite with verandah, which is 538 square feet. What is nice about this suite is that there is a heavy drape that can be drawn to close the bed off from the rest of the suite if one wants to rest and the other wants to read. The final suite is the Crystal Penthouse that is 1,345 square feet. The bedroom is on one side and the living on the other. There is a guest bathroom and the main bathroom has a large bathtub overlooking the sea. The living area is large with room for about a dozen people. There is a dining table for in suite dining. All the suites penthouse and above have a butler, a larger television, walk-in closets, larger bathrooms with separate shower and Jacuzzi tubs, and complimentary bottle of wine and choice of two bottles of liquor upon embarkation. Fitness/Spa The main pool is small but adequate. There are 2 Jacuzzis, which had plenty of room daily. There is a full size paddle tennis court, ping pong, aerobic studio, spa, salon, sauna stream/steam rooms, and an incredibly large fitness center with all the traditional equipment. There were a number of daily fitness classes that were complimentary. A personal trainer was also available for a fee. Complimentary Nordic Walking Poles and a WALKVEST that uses weight pockets around the waistline as part of the Walk On Water fitness program are available for use during the cruise after an orientation by the Fitness Director. There was a putting green with driving range nets as well as a Master Golf Professional offering golf clinics or private instruction. It is also possible to rent clubs to take onshore if you do not wish to bring your own. There are two walking tracks and one jogging track. There were a number of areas on the ship where there were lounges to sit and sun or read including around the pool, in the Palm Court or in the Trident Grill area. Amazing how much space there is! Gratuities are included. Laundry/Dress Code There are self-serve laundries on deck 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. The laundry is complimentary and each laundry includes 5 washers, 5 dryers, 2 irons and ironing boards. Crystal provides the liquid detergent, dryer sheets, and spray starch. A nice deep sink and folding table are also provided. Dry-cleaning and laundry services are available at comparable ship prices. Pressing is complimentary in the butler suites. The two dress codes are: Casual which is slacks and top for women and slacks and collared shirt for men. Black Tie Optional is where men can wear a jacket and slacks with no tie and women slacks and a top. On black tie optional there were all types of clothing from tuxedos and long gowns to slacks and tops. Jeans cannot be worn on formal nights, but I did see jeans on casual nights. Most guests dressed casually the majority of the time. Lectures/Activities We found the guest lecturers to be some of the best we have heard at sea. We had General Nick Hailey and Dr. Jay Wolff. There wasn’t a lecture we missed, something not common for us. Traditionally there were at least two lectures per day which were rebroadcast on the television. Most days there were activities all day long including dance classes, fitness classes, bridge lessons, Yamaha piano instruction, scrapbooking, enrichment lectures, Berlitz lessons, golf clinics, origami classes, needlepoint classes, gaming lessons, art lessons, bingo games, several different bridge games and mahjong play; all of which were complimentary. Library There is a good size library that offers DVD’s, cd’s and books to lend. They also have board games and daily Sudoku and crossword puzzles. Mobile Phones Crystal has Sea Mobile that enables many to use their mobile phone, receive text messages, etc. Onboard Booking Savings; Full Payment Bonus, Crystal Society discount Onboard booking savings of 5% for future cruises can be transferred as many times as needed or you can make an open booking and take up to 6 months to decide on your next cruise. A Crystal Society past passenger discount of 5% applies to all cruises. If you make final payment 6 months prior to sailing there is a 2.5% discount. Shore Excursions We participated in several shore excursions and felt these were similarly priced to other luxury lines and were well run. These ranged in price $39 for a 2 hour tour to $209 for a 7 hour tour. Smoking Policy Indoor smoking is permitted only in the Connoisseur Club smoking lounge. It is not permitted in any public rooms, lounges, restaurants, or staterooms. Outdoor smoking is permitted on deck 8, 9, 10 and 11 aft, by the seahorse pool area, and port side on the promenade deck.

    Fun and Easy Trip

    10/2016 Canada/New england/New York
    Full Review
    We were in general very happy with the ship and the trip. However, we have sailed on various lines: Holland American, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Oceania, and Uniworld and did not see a wide distinction from the other high end lines that we cruised on despite the 5 star/premium ranking of Crystal. Some ships/lines had better food and better entertainment (although not necessarily both) while others had larger cabins/baths. I expected a higher level of experience given the luxury classification of the line. One comment that i must add that although stayed at the same hotel as other guests who had transfers, given the inclement weather but short walk over to the pier, the Crystal Hospitality Desk could not help up get our luggage over to the ship which was cumbersome. I was surprised as I even offered to pay for the service and asked that at least the luggage be transported across the street to the pier but to no avail.
    Pros Short flight to Quebec City which we loved. Stayed across from the pier so easy to embark. Ship has all amenities which we enjoyed: Gym, library, theater, salon and spa.Seamless in terms of boarding and disembarking the ship.
    Cons Little bigger than we like.Food was good but not exceptional. Lectures were mediocre, and entertainment was average.

    My cabin was the most forward you could be on the B3 class. It was definitely not very suitable for access to any of the dining rooms and activities. Also, when the ship hit rough seas, as it did twice, the wind was howling in my cabin making it very difficult to sleep

    First large cruiseship through the Northwest Passage

    9/2016 Northwest Passage
    Full Review
    Crystal began planning this voyage four years ago when it became clear that global warming would make it possible to schedule a trip from Alaska to New York through the Northwest Passage. They worked closely with nine very small local communities so that our visits would benefit both residents and passengers. Sea days became adventure days with hikes to see snowy owls, kayaking along glaciers, visits to historical sites, and zodiac boat rides in ice floes with polar bears. This cruise surpassed the high expectations I had for it.
    Pros Superbly executed expedition adventure by a luxury cruiseship.
    Cons None.

    We love Crystal - have never tried another cruise line. Some of the excursions were not so good. In Sitka we had school buses that the windows would hardly close and it was cold. Not much opportunity to access rest rooms. Cabins are quite small - deluxe suite with balcony.
    Pros Excellent service from wait staff and maids. Very attractive public space. Good options for dining. Excellent excursions for the most part.
    Cons Problem with seating for dining. We requested a table of 6. There was no one but us at the table for 7 of the 10 nights - and then, only 2 peoplel - never 10. Not much effort to bring others to our table.

    Great cruise ship, plenty of lectures which is needed for 11 days at sea. Just an observation, as the median age gets older for Crystal passengers, I think the cruise line will need to focus on a younger clientele. I am guessing this is already happening with the River cruises. I also think, Crystal should consider amending their late sitting for dinner from 8:30 to 8:00. Almost everyone at the late sitting was done within 90 minutes. I appreciate the changes made since my last cruise in 2008. Scheduled for another one in 2018

There were many elderly people on this cruise and the tours were somewhat misleading. Food was good, especially breakfast and lunch. Found choices for dinner not as good as on past cruises.

    This ship had the most attentive and well-trained staff I've encountered in over 20 cruises. One example-at the lido buffet, a staff member will take your plate to your table for you and get whatever beverages you desire-no need to juggle china or glassware. There are a large variety of activities, something to suit just about anyone. Repositioning cruises are the best value in my humble opinion; Crystal is generally very expensive, but repo trips run at about half the normal cost; plus, on this run, the ship was just over half full, so no crowds anywhere. Many times we were walking on the promenade deck and never saw another soul.
    Pros service, food, ambiance, all-inclusive, both ports of call
    Cons a bit bouncy now and then, ship to airport transfers not well managed

    We have had about 8 trips on Crystal and it seems as if they are cutting back on small touches such as welcome bottle of champagne,daily news sheets, magazines in the library. However they do offer a bridge instructor on all cruises which is a great plus.
    Pros Generally the food is excellent and the entertainment good.
    Cons Two sittings of dining is never desirable. The first is too early the second too late and dining by reservation was difficult to do online.

    My Crystal Experience

    8/2015 France, Spain and Portugal
    Full Review
    Somehow I can't fault the ship, but I did not get what other cruises have offered me . Such as a variety of goods on sale - a shop where you could buy sundries ( they were available behind mirrored glass as exorbint prices. The tours were fair, but i cannot blame Crystal for that. The stops were interesting places. They seem to cater to a younger group or at least a group who has more energy, because they did not offer shuttle buses when the town was like 2 or 3 km away. The Crystal group of people as a whole were very nice and agreeable and offered to help if needed. However, although i notified them at the desk that I didn't hear on the phone, they kept sending me voice mails. My stewardess was very accomadating and translated them for me, but it was an irritation.My cabin had a king size bed, although a queen had been designated. Made the room a bit tight.
    Pros Food and service was very good. Stops were interesting/
    Cons lack of food availability after pm unless you went to the dining room. o type buffett available after 1:30 pm unless you wanted hamburgers or hot dogs

    7/2015 London, Dover and beyond in the UK and beyond.
    Full Review
    Our experience is generally positive. This particular cruise less than perfect because of the days that the ship was unable to allow tender transport due to wind and waves. The ship rose to the occasion with alternate entertainment on board. We were impressed by the teamwork among the staff - taking care of guests as well as one another. Personally, a 14 day cruise taxes us but we encountered many other guests who stay on board for at least twice the time and rave about their experiences. Another plus - we met several other couples cruising alone but enthusiastic about sharing experiences with us across the bar or at an adjacent table. We were in good company among other guests and the staff!
    Pros Excellent service from staff; preferences recalled within a day or two. Professional and friendly at the same time. Active casino with sufficient gaming choices and at-sea-day specialty games. Dining is not remarkable but restaurant service indulgent.Great premium wine choices.
    Cons Specialty restaurant reservations too limited and charging for a second or third visit,whether or not one can reserve at a reasonsable time, is nickel and diming! We are sure those with more stalk miles receive preferential treatment but we pay just as readily and just as much. Deluxe staterooms too small; need partisan between bed and sitting room. Film options could be more current. Improve Trident Bar seating.

    Crystal Serenity- June 12, 2015

    6/2015 Adriatic Adventure
    The Crystal Serenity cruise ship exceeding my expectations. Everything was definitely a 6 star experience. I really enjoyed the friendly staff, diverse onboard dining options, ports of call (minus Rijeka), and the arts at sea program.
    Full Review
    The embarkation/debarkation process was easy and stress free. This specific cruise was very port intensive, so the activities were limited. The piano bar onboard was great! The DJ in the disco was incredibly rude and not enjoyable. The production shows were ok, but I have seen better on other ships. Overall the cruise experience on Crystal was great!

    Crystal quality is superb, however, there were some disappointments in shore excursions advance communications, handling of exiting the ship for tenders, and high pricing of excursions. Food was excellent in all specialty restaurants, not quite as good in main dining room. Lecturers were good, but only a few were as good as in past years. Choice of daily activities on board is wonderful.
    Pros The entertainment -singers and dancers, Serenity Orchestra, Astoria Strings, special productions directed by Shane Morley were exceptional.
    Cons Many FW Cruisers said they were a bit disappointed in this cruise because they expected a "Wow" factor since it was touted as the special 25th anniversary sailing. There were 608 FWC guests which made the ship more crowded than usual and did not allow for special events on board as usual.

    There are 2 menu sides - the new and the old menus. The new was very inadequate. One dinner I received a toothpick size piece of king crab . Another night I had a linear strip of lamb - 2 strips and popcorn with 2 green leafs. Unfortunately the regular menu is half the size with much less choice. You can always order steak. If hungry after the meal, we ordered burgers from room service. We also paid $60.00 extra to eat at the speciality restaurand again which was excellent. The lido - daytime buffet was excellent as always.

    This was our second Crystal cruise. The experience is above and beyond other cruise lines. The luxury without being pretentious, the fabulous food and service without having to pay extra for a cocktail or glass of wine, the friendly ambiance of the entire crew from the Captain to the Porters, all of these make for a perfect sailing. The fact that there are not 2500 passengers to deal with, and the willingness of the crew to make every experience just a little bit more special is, in my opinion, a trademark of Crystal cruises. It was a lovely adventure.
    Pros The service, food and accommodations are wonderful.

    We checked in at the port in Boston with no problem. Boston is a beautiful city full of history and culture. Halifax and Peggy's Cove-not to be missed and Quebec so rich in character and charm. All the islands in Canada are pristine. No litter anywhere! The food on Serenity was the best in the main dining room as well as Prego, Silk Road and Tastes. Tastes, with it's small bites, was delicious and such fun!
    Pros Excellent itinerary, food and cleanliness of the ship
    Cons A combative sommelier in the main dining room; people did not understand the "only two visits to the speciality restaurants and up to 3 visits for Tastes before they were charged a whopping $30.00 per person for any additional visits.

    Full Review
    We had a truly wonderful time and it was great to be cruising again. There is not a better way to vacation than on board a Crystal Ship. I was really disappointed in looking at Fantasia. It looked like a pre-school type room. Nothing that would want youth of true school age to go to for activities. It also had no windows, so was more like in a closet. The Crystal Harmony had a much warmer, more inviting Fantasia for all age groups. I would not want to bring any grandchildren with me on a cruise and have them think there would be anyplace they could go and either do things on their own (or with their parents/grandparents) or with other children.
    Pros Everything was terrific. Great food, attentive staff, extremely clean, great decor, super accomidations
    Cons Needed more entertainment - shows in other lounge and more activities to participate in that would get you to know more people on board.

    My wife's friends had been hounding me to give her a nice vacation after 27 years of marriage, but since I get seasick I had resisted. Then Dennis Prager said on his radio show he was going to Iceland and I'd never been there, so we went. I did take dramamine for a couple of days, but my wife is now so happy I think we might make it another 27 years. Other than our children, she says it was the best present ever, so next time maybe a river cruise.

    6/2014 Mediterranean from Barcelona to Rome - 9 day
    Full Review
    We had a less fortunate experience with either a new, or underperforming cabin attendant - well -intentioned and polite, but remiss in a few areas enough to be noticeable. Although Crystal makes extensive explanations of its "over and above" internet capability, it really is inferior. Then to pay dearly for the service is just wrong. This needs to be fixed yesterday! The couple they have on TV tape with daily shore excursion information is plain awfull. I actually thought that it was a comic parody when I first saw it on my cabin TV. Most importantly they don't speak clear English on a ship which clearly has an American theme otherwise. I know their CEO is brand new, but someone should coach her on how to look at the camera without a teleprompter. She loses sincerity with the way it comes across.
    Pros Service and crew's attitude throughout. Food preparation and entertainment is #1

Their customer service is 5 star and everyone makes you feel important and that they are there to make sure you have a fantastic time.

    What can I say about the Crystal Serenity that hasn't already been said. Oh yes, I know. The Serenity had just came out of a multi million dry dock which greatly improved upon the experience at the Grill and Taste's. They've covered the Neptune pool and added a whole lot more seating. Now, even more passengers can enjoy this space. The crew on the Serenity are the best! I sailed on her a couple of years ago, and was I surpised at the number of crew that not only remember me, but my name as well!! Yes the Crystal Serenity is a beautiful ship, but it's her crew that really brings the ship to life and makes a cruise on her as unforgetful!!

    Crystal Serenity just came out of Dry Dock and was still being worked on when we started sailing. The Lido Deck for the Buffett's was not done until 3 days before the end of the cruise but it was worth the wait and georgous. The guests loved it. The all inclusive (not just for the Alcohol but also the specialty Coffee's and Tea's etc) added extra value to the trip. Great Guest Speakers and Lectures, something for everybody.

    Oct 5, 2013 "Barcelona - Istanbul: Memorable Med Cruise" - 12 nights.

    10/2013
    Look no further. With anticipation and enthusiasm permeating the sea air as passengers seamlessly embark Crystal Serenity, the search for a pampered and refined lifestyle at sea is defined here, on board a Crystal Serenity cruise. Combine with the amenities included by Signature Travel Network and a winning cruise experience awaits you! Although, Crystal is now considered an all-inclusive cruise experience, some of the most popular touches that go above and beyond making a significant impact on the Signature Cruise passengers were the gorgeous flower bouquets surprisingly delivered to all the Signature cabins. Also, the choice of complimentary Shipboard credit or Car & Driver for the day is included for Signature clients. It is always a big thrill for me, as their Signature host, to meet and greet the guests and their driver, then wave them off for a day ahead promised to be filled with fun adventure. Aboard this particular sailing, it gave me great pleasure to meet the invited Signature passengers at a privately arranged exclusive cocktail reception just for them! We toasted in unison, "to a great cruise"! It was a happy moment when meeting again, many past Signature passengers. As we hug, it feels as though we are family.

    Service - The service standard is set so high, that it is truly out-of-this-world. Every staff member gives the impression they are genuinely interested in pleasing you. They not only meet, but exceed expectations. For example, while reading by the pool, my melting ice cubes in my iced tea were changed three times without asking! Cuisine - what fantastic food! Not only the traditional dining room, but also there are the choices of two specialty restaurants Italian "Prego" and Nobu's "Silk Road". Even if feeling the desire for an extra special night to remember, there is the "Vintage Room", which carries an additional charge while all the others do not. On the other hand, the fabulous food continues with another option - dining by the pool with romantic flickering lights but lending its dress code to being more casual. Accommodations - recent refurbishment gives the cabins and suites a chic and luxe feel. The Frette linens and wonderful beds are extremely comfortable. the butlers for the penthouse suites are some of the best in the industry. Each bathroom has two sinks and a bathtub. Cabins details are thoughtful and well-designed. For example the bedside lights are angled so as to avoid shining in your sleeping cabin mates' direction. Entertainment& Activities - the nightly shows are some of, if not, the best at sea. The Creative Learning Institute provides a wide variety of workshops including computer skills classes with excellent and helpful staff. A nice touch - on the last day the ship throws in 20 free minutes so you can check into your flight - other classes offered are golf lessons, cooking demonstrations, dance lessons, art classes and the list goes on and on. Also the guest lecturers not only are far superior than their competitors, but the lecturers enjoy making themselves available for one-on-one interaction throughout the length of the cruise. There is a casino onboard, that continually proves to be popular. Spa & Fitness - the spa is a lovely full-service facility with a Zen theme. The Gym has state-of-the-art equipment and offers many different types of classes daily. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you want additional information, I will be happy to talk more with you.
    Pros All - inclusive, except for shore excursions. However, most ports include a regularly scheduled complimentary shuttle service into main part of town.
    Cons The logistics could be re-thought when in port disembarking to meet a tour bus or private car and drivers. Additional staff to offer directions may be more useful.

    Crystal Serenity - All Inclusive feedback

    9/2013 Dover to Barcelona
    This was my first experience on Crystal since they implemented the "All Inclusive" policy.
    Full Review
    It was nice not to have to deal with signing wine/cocktail receipts both for the hassle factor and the pocketbook! The selection of alcoholic beverages was quite good and for those who preferred "Top Shelf" drinks they could pay the extra charge. There were many long time Crystal guests on board as well as those new to the Crystal Experience. The dress code is more relaxed with more "Resort Casual" nights which made a difference in the clientele. There seemed to be younger guests and more families than I recall in the past. Though there were a few minor changes the level of service remained the same. All of the prior Crystal guests still felt like they had returned home.
    Pros Great lectures, Art at Sea, complimentary wine in staterooms on request, tips included.
    Cons Turndown pillow chocolates are gone but not greatly missed.

    Crystal Serenity Voyage to the top of the World

    7/2013 Norway/Russia
    Crystal Serenity is still on top of the cruise industry with it's service and client experience. The staff does an amazing job with their service and making sure everyone has a wonderful time.
    Full Review
    The new shows are very well done and the audience seemed to enjoy them. The Tourist, Across the Pond & Tribute to Elton John. This was a food and wine sailing and the events were very successful and each chef planned dishes on the menu one evening. The onboard guest lecturers were also very good.

    Russian Reverie Baltic Cruise

    6/2013 Baltic from Copenhagen to Stockholm
    We had a wonderful time on the Crystal Serenity in the Baltic.
    Full Review
    Taking a Crystal Cruise is a fabulous way to see Russia and the Baltic. From the moment we were met at the airport in Copenhagen until we were dropped off in the airport in Stockholm, Crystal was first class and provided great service and expertise. Upon arrival in Copenhagen we were escorted to a city center hotel and assisted with tourist information to help fill the time until we were taken to the pier for boarding. Crystal really does have the experience to provide a wonderful experience. The food was wonderful, Prego and Silk Road were really a treat and we loved the way everything was all-inclusive. We took the dining by reservation option. Crystal had most of the dining room for first or second sitting and they put the dining by reservation guests in the back of the dining room. The tables are very close to eachother so it is impossible not to be included in conversations on either side of your table, but the guests were great companions so we actually enjoyed sitting together. Entertainment was great. Crystal provided a complimentary bus transfer into every port except in St. Petersburg, whre a visa was necessary for anyone on their own and almost everyone took the shore excursions - which were wonderful. We were on a very port-intensive itinerary so they did not have as much entertainment as they have had on less active itineraries. The show was excellent and the entertainers were very good. In St. Petersburg Crystal brought on local dancers and entertainers. Their show as really special and it was great to be able to have them on board. I would definately recommend Crystal Cruises for any future trips.
    Pros All-inclusive program, culinary experience, the shuttle bus from the pier to the middle of town, Prego & Silk Road, all of it!
    Cons I really cannot complain about anything.

    Crystal Serenity

    12/2012 Caribbean
    I just got off the Crystal Serenity and was extremely impressed with the food, service, entertainment, and lecturers.
    Full Review
    Crystal's food quality and selection were excellent. We loved both Silk Road and Prego, the two alternative restaurants. Both the breakfast and lunch buffets included a large number of choices without sacrificing quality. The entertainment was of the highest quality with a great variety of shows. We had 5 big production numbers with a live orchestra as well as individual singers, a magician, a dancing duo, and a comedian. All shows were far better than on other cruise lines. The guest speakers were also far better than I have heard on other cruise lines. We had an astronaut who had been on 7 shuttle flights, 2 experts on the Middle East, an historian, and even Dr. Ruth, the sex therapist. There was a large turn out for all the speakers.
    Pros I highly recommend Crystal for their food, service, entertainment, and guest speakers.
    Cons I cannot think of anything to fault on the Crystal cruise I was on. Everything was very well organized, the service was impeccable, and the food always delicious.
