An ageing vessel, "dirty" engines putting out fumes on departure from ports.
Outside deck space is tired, not very comfortable seating and cushions when available dirty with cig burns.
Cocktails very watered own, wine a dinner nothing special but drinkable Excursions rather long and padded out with relatively uninteresting visits like carpet factory in Kusadasi which was interesting initially but not the 1 hour plus of resisting the sales pitch.
Disappointed that so many cruisers chose to ignore the dress code , tea shirts and sandals even on captains night.
Having given all the negatives, we enjoyed our cruise, food in Olympia was excellent and we were well served by Angelo Geny and Elisabeth the wine waitress. Lounge areas were comfortable and really enjoyed the shows which were very professional. Small groups playing in lounges were also good.
Overall although Cristal is showing her mature years this is made up for by the really excellent crew, always smiling and helpful.
Next cruise will be with a larger more modern ship but I think we will miss the size and friendliness of Criistal and her crew.
Adequate and reasonable size , kept clean
Very hot day, interesting village made up of lots of little shops and restaurants on cliff edge
Walked into town and around pedestrian area, very relaxed and interesting Took cab to nearby beach which was disappointing
