Sail Date: Dec 2014
Cabin: Crystal Penthouse with Verandah

My first time on Crystal. A few notes for those considering one of the four Crystal Penthouse Suites.

1. For guests in CP category, Crystal do embarkation and disembarkation better than anyone. Car dispatched to hotel, driver calls 10 minutes out, guest greeted curbside, luggage whisked away, and guest given a personal escort throughout entire (painless process) and handed over to butler at end of gangway. Departing, no waiting with a group, same personal process in reverse. Note to all other luxury lines -- this is exactly what your top suite passengers want.

2. The four recently redone CP suites are thoughtfully laid out, well furnished, and extremely comfortable. Decoration a touch flashy for my taste, but I got used to it. Bathrooms with heated floors and one-touch temperature controlled showers most pleasing. Only possible criticism is that verandas are too small.

Cabin Review

Crystal Penthouse with Verandah

Cabin CP

As noted above, the redone category CP suites are superb. Mid-ships location means little motion, and proximity to mid-ship stairs. Completely quiet. Verandahs completely private. Lovely Bose sound system for your I-pod/music. Small dining room. Small but comfortable bed room, really brilliant bathroom.
