Not our first time on Crystal, but now our last. We were late leaving San Diego as the ship's doctor had to be rushed to the hospital. As we were sailing under a Bahamian flag, it was determined that two of the guests who were doctors, would stand in. Safe? Maybe. This was our first time on Symphony, but many times on Serenity and on Harmony. We were treated like a stranger throughout ...

We have previously sailed on Crystal Serenity. Both cruises our suite was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Since we had cruised the Bahamas in past years, we wanted a different itinerary. So we decided to Hawaii would be a nice change. Embarkation started off a little rocky, Crystal was trying out a new system and it took awhile to get information into an iPad. Our cabin was ready ...

When I saw that this Hawaiian cruise (on my favorite ship, no less!) was to depart from and return to San Francisco (my home), I was delighted. The cruise turned out to be my favorite one ever. I travel solo, as I like to have my own cabin, and I always make new friends onboard. Crystal is the best cruise line for solo travelers, charging FAR less than the 200% most of the others charge. I ...

In May 2018, my wife and I took Crystal’s two-week cruise to Hawaii aboard the Symphony (voyage OCS180518-16). We take about three cruises a year on Crystal. I rate this cruise as excellent, that is, an overall “5” on a scale of 5. Crystal’s quality slipped a bit in the last few years. But Crystal is now back up to where it ought to be. This is one of two ships in Crystal’s tiny ocean ...

We have travelled Crystal before and decided with the fixed seating that it wasn't for us. After seeing the advertising for Dining By Reservation we thought we would try again. Unfortunately the dining experience was not enjoyable as dining at 7 or 730 you are in a dining room emptying out around you with clatter of tables being set and moved and waiting staff rushing around in a frenzy preparing ...

We travelled to Los Angeles to board the Symphony, embarkation was made so simple by Crystal. It took minutes to register & be in our room. I had been extremely anxious prior to boarding. Everything I had heard, read, etc. had me beside myself. I had nothing to worry about. The staff treated us like royalty. We mostly ate in the dining room at a table of 8. Our dinner-mates were absolutely ...
