We were on this specific cruise as a business incentive award, so we did not actually select the cruise ship or the specific cruise. The Symphony is a relatively small ship, accomodating about 1000 guests. We spent very little time in Barcelona (our departure city ) as we used that time for an excursion in the mountains, as we did at most of the other ports. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and fast without exception. Because the ship is relatively small, it is also easy to navigate. The cabin was comfortably and pleasantly furnished. Dining was exceptional throughout, from a small private dinner to all the other dining facilities and room service. (It's really a treat to get hot scrambled eggs from room service!) The entertainment was top notch, whether it was informational, a jazz trio in a lounge, or an after dinner show. The service was exceptional in every area. Although all the service staff was phenomenal, I would like to recognize Denis Blagojevic, who works in The Palm Court as being one of the best of the best. We hpoe to use Crystal Cruises again. We would really enjoy another cruise on Symphony, as it was perfect for us in every way.
As one would expect the cabins are not large. Our was quite comfortable and pleasant.
