Ship Facts: Crystal Symphony Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crystal Symphony Deck Plans
Crystal cruise is one of the very best.
Starting with the best.... The dining experience was incredible, Silk Road was so good, we made another reservation immediate after dinner. The sushi, black cod, dessert were all memorable. The dinning room food was near equal in quality to the specialty rest.

Great mix of cruisers but more on the older group ( we are 52), met some very nice people. Many repeat cruisers on the ship, one person told us they have cruised with crystal for over 20 years and have seen some of the crystal staff aged over the years. The ship is clean, service is great. My husband celebrated his birthday on board, he was provided a "special birthday breakfast" ( it was over the top) along with an invitation to the Captain's quarters for champagne. Speaking of champagne, as soon as you board, you are presented with champagne. Within 2 hours on board, we had a great lunch , tipsy, and very relaxed.

The not as good.., activities were limited, I read 4 books during the cruise, the lecturers almost put me to sleep. The casino was empty most of the time except for a few of us. The cabin is the smallest of all ships we have been on. We sailed in late November and shop inventory was extremely low. I wish there was a better selection of merchandise especially when it came time spending the on board credits.

Despite the " not as good" we would definitely sail with Crystal again , they made us feel special and welcome.
