Some of the crew

We chose Celestryal for the 3rd time as we have had 2 great cruises in the past. We love the Crystal she is a small compact ship, (yes, ship, she doesn't look like a floating warehouse with windows!) , with a fantastic crew. We wanted to relax and enjoy ourselves and that's just what happened. The first week there were only 400 passengers on board, capacity is 1200, so we had a very quiet, well served week. We had a balcony cabin on the Apollo deck deck 7, which was ideally situated for trips to the restaurant on 5 and reception. The lifts and stairwell were close too, we always or nearly always use the stairs good for the figure.

We ate most evenings in the Olympus restaurant where the food was excellent, our waiter Ali and his colleagues served us with joy and laughter every evening.

The entertainment by the Cuban troupe was excellent, although we were a bit displeased by the one evenings venue which included a tribute to Russia content!!!!

Cabin Review

Normal size cabin with balcony well fitted out, only comment only one channel on the TV in English, a news channel.
