1-10 of 7 Crystal Symphony Cruise Reviews for Romantic Cruises to Europe from Athens (Piraeus)
Sadly, we witnessed the effect of new ownership on this cruise line. After five positive experiences on the Symphony, 'economic pullbacks' took a toll on our most recent experience. Previous sailings included live string quartets at tea time. No more. Midnight chocolate festivals in the central lobby. No more. Ice sculptures. No more. Chocolates and fresh fruit bowls in the cabin. No ...
The food was amazing each dish was a beautiful creation.
The staff was kind accommodating and always ready to say yes.
The entertainment was mundane except for the piano bars which were great.
Perfect cruise foe eating and drinking.
If you have trouble walking beware. They do not accommodate , at least they didn't for me. I ended up missing activities because I couldn't get ...

We were ...

We might eventually try another cruise line, but it will be hard to beat the only cruise line named a ...
Great first time experience on Crystal...won't be the last. The itinerary was fabulous. Disappointed we lost a sea day with the change in itinerary, but Crystal did a great job.
Wish we had more time to experience the activities on the ship. Loved going to the islands in Greece that were not typical of Greek Island cruises. The people we encountered couldn't have been nicer or more ...
This was the first time I have sailed with Crystal. I had certain expectations engendered by what I had been told by friends who have made a life cruising around the world, and which were not all negative. I arrived back home wishing I could have stayed longer and as a frequent land-traveler I do not often say that. There is elegance in simplicity and, though the ship is not as technically modern ...
