Too little for so much

First you fly into Montreal and get to your hotel about 5 after being on the road since 5 am. The meet and greet is a bevy of repetitive tables in the lobby of the baggage area after YOIU put your luggage in a bin ...

Responsiveness of Corpoate Offices Averted Signficant Disappointment

My mother, who is in her 80s, asked me to join her on this cruise. The itinerary and level of service created outstanding memories, as we might not have this opportunity again. I had been on the Crystal Symphony ...

Best part of the cruise was the disembarkation transfer.

First time Crystal cruisers selected this cruise for a 'taste' of the line......embarkation was nearly like waiting for your broken bus in a bus station. We missed our 7pm dinner reservation for anniversary ...

Serenity NYC to Quebec City

This was my first Crystal Cruise and I may never go back to any other cruise line. Their single supplement is the most generous by far and enables me to cruise alone or even have my own stateroom when cruising with ...
