Sail Date: Aug 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Large Picture Window (extremely limited view)

Firstly a little bit of background. My wife and I are long time cruisers, mostly on smaller and the R8 ships. Pacific Princess and the unfortunate Adonia have been our regular choice, but in recent years have looked into alternative cruise lines. Windstar, Regent and now several Cruises with Oceania.

Back to this review. We chose the Crystal Symphony because of the itinerary and to experience another mid sized ship. Whilst the ship is physically large the passenger count is still below 1000, which means alot of public space and larger staterooms.

The décor and luxury is immediately apparent but certainly not over the top.

Cabin Review

Cabin E2

Cabin was always clean and facilities above what might be expected. In an all inclusive ship it seemed a little mean to only supply the cabin with soft drinks. Not really a problem but again it detracts from the overall impression.
