Sail Date: Feb 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah

My wife, Rosy and I chose this cruise as it guaranteed warm / hot weather and having traveled from Singapore to Hong Kong last year, experiencing cool weather as we moved north, we decided we were more bothered about the weather than the itinerary.

We booked a package through a UK TA, including club class flights on Emirates and hotels / transfers in Singapore and Bali. Emirates offer club class pax free luxury transfers to and from home to LHR and from Singapore to hotel and on return from cruise terminal to airport. We booked one night at the Marina Mandarin, in Singapore and two nights at the Conrad Bali. Our package included a club flight on KLM from Singapore to Bali and transfers.

After two nights at the very comfortable Conrad Bali, we were excited to be taking our first Crystal cruise. We took a 'blue' cab to the port, a journey of about 30 minutes costing about £6! This included a toll on the new access road and another to enter the port!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah

Cabin B1

Very comfortable and excellent location. Decent shower pressure, standing in bath which we otherwise didn't use. Would prefer a larger shower cubicle and no tub. Small coffee table removed as it was in the way.
