we had sailed crystal three years ago and had had a good experience. also, the itinerary seemed different, so we decided to try it again.
the service was excellent, the cabin size was great, and each of the ports was new to us, so it made for an interesting trip. however, would have liked one more sea day as it was a port heavy cruise.
the ruby bamboo trio and Erika in palm court, as well as Marissa in the main dining room deserve a special mention for making a good trip, great.
