Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2010
Cabin:

Picked up Crystal 0214 from Dover late June 2010.Embarkation procedures smooth but from there everything just got even better and better.Waited on sun deck and had lunch while rooms were being readied.

This was cruise that about which there simply was NOT a single deficiency.

a.food - flawless,simple,clean,eye catching and always prepared exactly to individual likings.Special requests not a problem.After the first night,the Senior waiter took the trouble to ask as what we wanted that night so it could be prepared eg special meats or poultry.

Cabin Review

Cabin B

average size with small but quiet teak balcony.Luxuriously appointed and supplied and spotlessly clean.Serviced twice daily or more if you really want.Everything works.Deck 8 port side near front

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

smooth nothing to identify as areas of problems

CPH is great walking town but really need more than the day allocated.Crystal take you to the centre of town and back as needed.

Oslo

as above but its not a patch on other Scandinavian cities.You can easily access the city from the port.

Helsinki

as above great place,Crystal bring you to the centre of town

Visby

as above exciting little old town.Explore the island and the old town.

Stockholm

delighful.Again,the shuttle is needed to get to near Gamla Stan and it parks in a great place.

St. Petersburg

what can you say,This is an eye opener.Our cruise stayed there for 3 days so plenty of excursions are the order of the day.Dont worry about stone faced officials everywhere,just revel in the majestic palaces an sights of this historic city.
