This was our 35th cruise on Crystal Symphony

|

This was our 35th cruise on Crystal Cruises. Our stateroom has always been on the penthouse deck because of the walk in shower. Over the years we have noticed with the change of ownership and executive management ...

Lovely ship but unfortunately left disappointed

Crystal Symphony is an appealing ship, well maintained and spotlessly clean. It’s large enough to have a variety of dining and entertainment, yet small enough to get on and off easily. Service was unfussy and ...

Crystal Symphony around the British Isles

We chose this cruise as one of our group had done a Crystal cruise before and always considered it a cut above the rest. There were many ways in which this was an excellent cruise from a first-rate company but we ...

Below Expectations & Previous Experiences

We are well 'crystallized' but found this cruise below expectations. Embarkation was well organized although no one especially greets or escorts you once you step on board. Our cabin was well maintained and serviced ...

Excellent first cruise on Crystal Symphony

This was our first cruise with Crystal and was a short 'try-out' before trying something more ambitious. I don't think it would be possible (for me at least) to cruise without a few niggles, but in this case they ...

Wait until you are 80 to cruise with Crystal.

I don't even know where to begin. Let me say that the crew and service staff were excellent. That is the only good thing about this cruise line. 1) For the amount of money, WIFI should be included with the price. ...

This was my husband's and my first Crystal Cruise, and we're hooked. The food was outstanding (see below for my reviews on having to eat gluten free) and the crew most caring. Crystal is first class, all the way, ...

We are not rich people. The financial hoops we leapt through in order to afford this experience, this ULTIMATE luxury experience, were monumental. But we did it. We managed to book the Crystal Penthouse ...

British Isles Cruise

This was my second cruise on Crystal. The first cruise was on the Serenity in 2010. The two ships are similar though the Serenity is larger. I preferred the Serenity, but I preferred the decor on the Symphony. ...

ELEGANCE AFLOAT

A food and Wine themed cruise appealed enormously to us, when we booked this lovely ship sailing from Barcelona back to our "home" port of Southampton. An easy early BA flight from the excellent London city airport ...
