Cabin Rating
We chose this cabin because its location, under an overhang, meant that the balcony was slightly larger, something we valued. The interior, though a little on the small side, was beautifully laid out, and the bath was also small, though again well laid out, and beautifully appointed.  Read entire member review.

The stateroom was fine with a euro king-size bed (same as US queen, but with large rounded corners at the foot so if you're 6-ft tall like me, one foot will hang over the end). We were surprised to find the 246-sq ft stateroom about 10% smaller than those on the Crystal Serenity (269 sq ft) and 22% smaller than the corresponding level room on Regent (301 sq ft). Perhaps because we were in a hot climate, the lowest we could get the cabin temperature was about 73 degrees F, which was okay during the day, but too hot at night. We traded the duvet on the bed for a blanket, but even that was often too hot. So a good night’s sleep wasn’t one of the high points of the cruise. Also, only one 2-prong 110-v electric outlet (at the desk) so plugging in tablet, laptop, chargers for Kindle, phone, and camera batteries can't be done. No grounded plugs either.

Crystal Symphony by Karen1969
The cabin was very comfortable and has been updated. The size is a good bit smaller than on the other cruise lines we've sailed, but we knew this. The bath is very nice with plenty of storage and a fantastic shower! The room has an extra hair dryer, refrig, flat screen TV, umbrella, verandah with table and two chairs, nice size closet and plenty of drawers for stuff. You should bring an extension cord as there is only one 110 plug at the desk.  Read entire member review.
Near the forward elevator but very quite. Strategic location, easy to go anywhere. The laundry room is nearby. Promenade just one stairs below. Nice and compact balcony.  Read entire member review.

#8040 is quiet, smallish is you have sailed on more modern ships, but everything had its place with plenty of shelves, closet, storage...loved the night light, clock, umbrella, amenities, stocked frig and comp water...good location, balcony was great for viewing the scenery..  Read entire member review.
For us the veranda suite was just right. We had plenty of room. It would be nice is Crystal could put some sort of night light in the bathroom so one didn't have to turn on the lights from the outside and wake up the fellow passenger.  Read entire member review.
Already covered above, but: small closet, tight bathroom, tub shower instead of stall shower, cramped stateroom for two large (in height and/or girth) guests; balcony OK; pretty good TV reception of CNN, BBC, SkyNews; firm bed, which, for me was fantastic! Stewardess gave really good service and was rewarded accordingly with extra cash left on my pillow every day, in addition to the recommended gratuity. Desk chair sides came up to my armpits, rendering it unsuitable for lengthy use, such as to read a book. Had to go to public spaces to read at length.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin 8218 is ideally located. The balcony is oversized. There is an open deck relaxation area convenient to the aft cabiins. This is quiet private area. The view from the balcony is totally unobstructed.  Read entire member review.
We picked cabin 9001 on a rec. from a Cruise Critic reviewer. It gave us an unobstructed forward view as we went thru the canal. It was also covered and shielded us from the sun which was important since the transit took all day. Those stuck out on the decks were getting too much sun. The room was small compared to Seabourn and Regent but adequate.  Read entire member review.

No walkin closet but adequate storage

Less Than Expected by BataviaMan1

Our major complaint --and a big one--was the very small size of our suite. Having had suites on Holland American and Regent, we were very disappointed with the small ,cramped cabin and the tiny bathroom and with no walk in closet. We like to read in our cabin but found it uncomfortable here and went to the public rooms to read.
