We had a great cruise on the Serenity

We had a great cruise on the Serenity from Miami to Los Angeles. This was the first leg of the 2020 World Cruise. Food and wine are an important part of cruising for us. We found the food to be very good to ...

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 ...

Not the ship for us

Beautiful ship. Excellent crew. We wanted a holiday getaway. Haven’t been back to Caribbean for many years. Friends highly recommended Crystal so decided to give it a try. This is mostly a ship for people who ...

NOT Crystalized

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 ...

First Class all the way

This was my 60th birthday celebration so we decided to go higher end. We have sailed with Disney with our kids and lately on the newer HAL pinnacle ships. We were overall thrilled with the cruise and are now ...

There are luxury cruise lines and there is CRYSTAL!

In the past 3 years we have sailed with Silversea 4 times, with Regent 3, with Oceania 1 and with Seabourn 2 times. We had heard excellent comments about Crystal when their Mediterranean cruise caught our attention. ...

Loved our First Crystal Cruise

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 ...

Pampered and well fed

We thought we booked the same line we took on another cruise, but it turned out to be the Crystal Serenity, which was even better. The staff were happy, which we like because it means the company treats them well, ...

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 ...

We chose the Serenity having travelled on the Espirit and the Harmony and because we wanted to do a Baltic Sea Cruise. We have suite 11060 which is fine and it an added benefit to order dinner from any of the ...

Ticks all the boxes, yet something was missing...

We’ve sailed with Seabourn and Hapag Lloyd before and were interested to try Crystal for a short six day cruise to see how life would be on a bigger ship. In some respects Serenity was excellent. The food ...

Great locations, but nothing special about Crystal.

First, since Crystal Serenity goes to dry dock next month (October 2018), some of the comments may not be applicable. My wife and I took a Crystal river cruise last year (Danube) and were so impressed with the ...
