We have been back home a week, from our cruise to Bermuda on Crystal Symphony. We are experienced cruisers but first time on Crystal and on a luxury cruise. We often cruise out of Boston, no flying, and couldn’t resist this last minute offer close to home. I want to give our impressions, but also answer questions we had before going especially during a pandemic.
We have been to Bermuda many times and it was a good thing. The island was struggling to get the virus under control, and we didn’t want to go very far or do much. It did not prevent us from having a wonderful time on this cruise.
There were quite a few hoops to jump through before and during this cruise due to the pandemic. We got tested four days before leaving making sure it was the proper test required by the Bermuda government. Our travel agent helped keeping us up to date on what we needed. We got all our paperwork, vaccination records together scanned and e-mailed it to Bermuda, days later we received our authorization then signed scanned, and sent that in for our approval e-mail. We arrived at the dock with about 8 pages of paperwork, we needed it all.
an excellent cabin in the aft of the ship. Just doors from the open area in the back of the ship where there are lounge chairs. Also this cabin has the larger balcony, with cushioned chairs and a table large enough to eat a meal on. Lots of storage.
