Crystal Bahamas Cruise Reviews

Beach stop for lobster lunch on excursion in San Salvador.  A piece of heaven.
Prego Specialty Restaurant (Italian) Mushroom Soup in a Bread bowl. My wife favorite of anything on the cruise.

NOTE: My spelling and grammar are horrible. I am told that on Social Media all the time. Please look past that in this review. I attempted to go above and beyond with my story. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you. It Did Not Start Well: 8-Days prior to leaving, my wife go "Break Through Covid". Mild case but forced us to cancel. She got back her taste and smell after 7 days. Please ...

We chose this Crystal cruise because we have cruised with them twice before and think they are one of the best. The cruise seemed like a safe bet because when we booked it in early summer, they were leaving from Nassau and only taking on cruisers who were vaccinated .Early August we get an email that they were now taking away a extra day in the Bahamas and adding Miami Florida. By this time you ...

A great cruise unaffected by COVID

We chose this cruise as it was one of the first luxury lines to reopen with a short itinerary. It seemed to be good way to step back into cruising without extensive travel. We had problems getting to Nassau, which was not the fault of Crystal. After that scare we had to be tested at Bahia Mar Convention center (for COVID). The process was orderly and efficient. We were in and out in ...

After a year and a half of no opportunity to safely cruise or travel, we were thrilled to see that Crystal was going to be offering 7 day cruises in the Bahamas. Even though we live in South Florida, we still had to fly to Nassau to board the Serenity to assure all passengers that everyone was required to be vaccinated and would be Covid tested just before boarding the ship. Our reservation for ...

I missed cruising during Pandemic and when Crystal announced it was starting Bahamas cruises out of Nassau, I signed up. This was one of the best cruises I have ever had. I am an experienced cruiser (40+ cruises) and usually cruise solo. After a slow start in Nassau where we were all tested for Covid, we were transported to the ship. The Serenity holds about 970 passengers and was ...

So first, let me say, this was our first cruise on Crystal. We normally cruise Celebrity , or occasionally Princess & Royal Caribbean. And to be fair, we sail in Aqua class or above on Celebrity.....which is comparable to prices for this cruise. We decided to try out Crystal to see how we liked it. After reading reviews and other things on here, we were really excited for the experience. ...

We were so happy when Crystal decided to homeport the Serenity in Nassau for the summer. Although a much shorter cruise than we normally take (pre-pandemic) just being back onboard to enjoy the ship again and visit some of the lesser known Bahamian islands was a great way to spend seven days. Bimini was the only real downside since the day was treated (unknown to us at the time) as a ...

We thought a summer cruise in the Bahamas would be hot and stormy but we lucked out with unseasonably dry weather, and the trade winds kept the temperature pleasant at least in the mornings and evenings. This was our first cruise on a luxury line and on a ship of this size. We usually cruise on Celebrity or sometimes Holland-America on ships that are twice the size of this 1,000-passenger ...

We chose this cruise because it was the first one able to sail. Getting on the ship took a while, but once we got on, it was wonderful! This was a fully vaccinated ship so nobody had to wear a mask on board except the employees. The only bar you could sit around was in Palm Court. The seats around the bars were open, however. To get on the ship we met at the Baja Mar convention center where we ...

The long-awaited return of Crystal to cruising was largely a welcome success. The Crystal Serenity and her crew sparkled. Perfect, no, but I take issue with a reviewer on the same cruise who deemed the return “an apology cruise.” Sad that that couple boarded “anxious” rather than ‘eager’ as I and another well-travelled companion did. This is conjecture, but perhaps those guests had initially ...
