This review is only highlighting two major problems that Crystal has had with its policies for the ships.

1. Children are only looked after by kids club care while a parent is onboard. - If both parents (Authorized person) leave to go on a shore trip they MUST take the kids with them - Noting that a number of the shore trips are not for children -

2. The only compromise is to have a staff member - not trained in child care are not having any basic emergency medical training baby sit them in your room. That's not to the same standards as kids club as they staff member could be any volunteer -

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Large Picture Window (limited view)

Cabin E1

Tight room for 2 +1 but with good service from staff the room worked for us. The ship was up for refit after our trip so it was a bit worn and some noise but for sleep was good.
