What is wrong Crystal?!

Two years ago I had a cruise with the Crystal Symphony, and my husband valued it with a 10 + !! Fantastic... That is why I chose this year again for Crystal, but this time as a solo-cruiser because my husband ...

My review of our recent back-to-back on the Serenity Caribbean cruise. Let me say we are not new to cruising and usually sail on Oceania (which is not a Luxury line). We chose Crystal this time because ...

More than expected

A friend recommended the line, plus the itinerary included ports of interest to me such as Kotor and Debrovnik. I also prefer ships that hold fewer than 1000 guests. Rooms were a bit small but the amenities of the ...

THE LAST CRUISE AND THE $22,000 COLDS by Strode Wallace

I did not know whether to title this review “The Last Cruise” or “The $22,000 Colds.” As much as we like Crystal, in 2018 I had booked a cruise on Pro-Iceland for a 7-day cruise of just Iceland. But in ...
