Review for Crystal Symphony to Caribbean - All

We chose this cruise back in October, before omicron, because the price was a steal. When it cam close to the cruise date, we were beatinng whether or not to go (and lose $2000 if we canceled). but we were upgraded a week before to a penyhouse "suite", so it was hard to pass up. We had to test negative for COVID within 48 hours of our flight to San Juan and, again, at the dock bfroe boarding. We ...

We had sailed on Crystal Serenity 6 years ago for a Mediterranean cruise. We loved it! Sooo, when I received a promotional deal for early December, we thought we’d give it a try. I did enormous research as for as the state of cruising in this Covid environment. All passengers had to be fully vaccinated. Also, every passenger was tested right at the dock. I felt safer than at Costco! All crew wore ...

Crystal is delightful once onboard the ship. No complaints. Every experience exceeded expectations. How things were handled at the Port of Miami both on departure and on arrival was nothing less than dismal. At departure there were lines, requiring to show passports and varying cruise documents at least four times. It took forever and was unpleasant. On return, once through Customs and ...

Travelled, literally, on the worst time of the year so I expected things to go well as soon as I was onboard as usual. Though I had purchased transfers through CC for airport-ship and ship to airport, there was no one to meet (and assist possibly) at the airport. Managed to get to the pier and commence the embarkation procedure. Though justified in their efforts to screen passengers, there must ...

Crystal was offering specials to travel in Oct so my wife and I signed up for our second Crystal cruise and talked my sister and husband into trying Crystal. They are frequent travelers on Silversea so I was worried this trip might not stack up. Luckily despite Covid and the devastation it has done to the hospitality industry I can attest that Crystal has kept up the luxury brand and We had an ...

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 ...

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 ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

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. ...
