This cruise on the Crystal Serenity (1,000 passengers) was a good fit for two of our travel goals: (1) lots of sea days and (2) lots of Ireland. Cruise V4322 started with four daily port stops, three of them in Ireland (Belfast, Dublin, ... Read more

About boarding with very high expectations we were greeted by a truly beautiful ship. Lovely design, sophisticated and well-appointed without being overwhelming. The Palm Court is a particularly pleasant space for lounging and watching the ... Read more

This cruise was our second crystal cruise. Last year we sailed from Venice to Rome and had an amazing time! The shore excursions were top notch and the service was amazing. The ship was quiet and there was a wonderful lack of children. We ... Read more

We are a couple in our mid-40's, and this was our first time on the Crystal Serenity. This is our second time on a luxury ship though, as we have cruised on the Silver Wind before. Embarkation at Ciitavechhia was speedy and efficient. We ... Read more

This review is written from the perspective of long-time cruisers on “mainstream” lines who decided to try a “luxury” line cruise aboard Crystal Serenity. The question with which we’d always wrestled was, ... Read more

My wife and I checked in to stateroom 7069 on 13th July in Barcelona. There is a lot to say, so let me break it down into sections: Stateroom: This was beautifully appointed for sure, but a few things annoyed me. I am a little over 6ft 3, ... Read more

Truly an exceptional experience in terms of being taken care of, feeling safe and completely content. The food is spectacular (not easily said since I am a gourmet home chef) . The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and ... Read more

This was our fifth Crystal cruise and our third onboard the Crystal Serenity and, as it had recently undergone a multi-million pound refit, we were looking forward to seeing the changes. As our flight to Venice did not arrive until quite ... Read more

My husband and I (late 40s/early 50s) took this cruise with his brother's family which includes his wife and 2 daughters who are in their early 20s. This was our 17th cruise, but our first on a "premium" line. We were expecting an older ... Read more

We decided that a Crystal Getaway would make the perfect Easter break, especially as Serenity would be visiting a favourite city, Bordeaux. This newly renovated ship is a favourite, and the latest makeover is truly elegant and stylish. ... Read more

If you want a REAL vacation it would be on the Crystal. I have been on both the Crystal Symphony and the Crystal Serenity. My last cruise was on the Serenity and it sure sticks to its name. My vacation WAS really serene! Every staff member ... Read more

Hi: For a comparison, you might want to see the Review I wrote on Seabourn in May of 2012 under the name of 76mike. The food aboard the Crystal Serenity was fantastic--very similar to that on Seabourn. It would be hard to "pick a ... Read more

My wife and I have always had a stereotypical opinion of what a cruise would be like having seen documentaries on the subject, portraying a negative view. So when the opportunity arose to try one we agreed with some trepadation. How wrong ... Read more

This cruise was simply an unmitigated disaster. I have been on plenty of cruises to know what good service is and what to expect, and Crystal simply failed. The reviews convinced us to take this cruise, and I hope this review convinces you ... Read more
