We chose the Crystal Symphony on the basis of our own research, the recommendation of experienced travelers and our experience with the Crystal agent with whom we booked our voyage.
The ship itself was modern and immaculate. While the staff clearly worked hard around the clock to keep the ship in extraordinarily beautiful condition, you were never aware of all the effort being expended on your behalf.
The eating experiences were innumerable and comparable to the best restaurants we have ever eaten in. The service was superb. If it wasn't on the menu, the kitchen was pleased to prepare that for you as well.
One cannot say enough about the graciousness of the staff. They worked elegantly and tirelessly to satisfy your every need and want.
The excursions were well planned and the staff support made them thoroughly enjoyable.
The ship's other guests were a pleasure to be with...mature and refined.
I would travel again on the Crystal Syphony at the drop of a hat. In fact, I am planning our next Crystal Cruise.
Simply awesome...inside and out. Having a verandah added immensely to our enjoyment and adventure. The room was refined and comfortable. The view was spectacular. And the room attendant was amazing throughout.
