A fantastic experience - we've already booked our next one

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Melbourne

We loved it! - We took this short 6 day cruise to see if we would like cruising - and we do!
From the moment we stepped on board to our departure everything about Crystal Symphony and her crew was perfect - a great example of how a luxury cruise experience should be delivered.
We were first time cruises but have already booked our next Crystal cruise - 15 days this time across the Pacific in 2014 - on board Symphony again

We really enjoyed the sea days - so much too do - in fact you can't fit everything in on the programme

The food in the MDR, Prego and Silk Road restaurants was excellent - we were never disappointed with the quality or the service

It never felt crowded and there was always a quiet place you could find to relax - or if you wanted company there were plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle with other guests
We are looking forward to our next cruise Less

Cabin review: Crystal Symphony Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah Seabreeze Deck 9130

9130 was a good cabin - it's located near the stern. easy access to a nice deck area at the back if your own balcony isn't big enough. The cabin was good with enough room for a couple to be able to relax in. We found the bed comfortable. The bathroom and shower were great. One thing we learnt was that you can have anything resting on the inside of the safe door - otherwise it won't work properly - easy really - once you know the trick The maid service was great - nothing too much trouble and great attention to detail
