Crossing the Atlantic Solo! Miami to Lisbon May 4 - 17, 2015 Background Information: I have cruised extensively on Princess, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean and always enjoyed these vacations immensely. When I became a widow I wanted to continue to travel so once again tried Royal Caribbean and Holland America and found these lines didn't really encourage solo travellers starting with ...

Crystal Serenity -- Miami to Lisbon (May 4 to 17, 2015)

The strength of Crystal Serenity (1,000 passengers) lies in its sea days and onboard entertainment, rather than its limited offerings onshore. My wife and I took this “Classic Atlantic Crossing” to maximize those sea days. Cruise V5308 (Miami to Lisbon in May 2015) stopped enroute at Bermuda and the Azores. There’s a lot to like about the Serenity, and Crystal’s performance was acceptable in ...

This was our 13 cruise on crystal all have been on symphony, this was our first on Serenity. This was our third crossing that lectures were over the top the shows were also good. I thought the food service in the main dinning room was ok not great. The presentations of the plates had no garnish at all. We were in Penthouse with a regular suite not worth the money. Flowers were dead most of ...

I found the atmosphere on the Serenity to be intolerable by the end of the first few days. I will not go into much detail here but suffice it to say I was ignored by others when I as a solo traveler sat down and waited to play. As soon as a couple came along, the couple who had been playing addressed them and aid they would take them on. I was never acknowledged, greeted , etc nor did they ...

Beautiful ship, poor main dining room cuisine; service could be better.

While the ship is very beautiful, having taken various cruise on the Symphony, the Serenty specifically with regard to the main dining room cuisine was rather poor. Most of the dishes lacked taste, and on one evening in particulate when lobster was served, the lobster meat was limp, soggy and had no taste whatsoever. What also bothered me about the main dining room was the lack of attention paid ...

We so much liked the Fall 2012 T/A on Serenity that we didn't need much convincing to book this voyage as well. In both cases the chief attraction for Nancy was the ballroom dancing theme, with the opportunity to take private dance lessons from the on board professionals. As for me, I just like to be at sea. This voyage was more heavily booked than the previous one by about 15%. Wile the ...

As veterans of many Transatlantic cruises, on ships large and small, we had high expectations of the Crystal experience. Our expectations were exceeded well beyond our dreams. This was a cruise that fulfilled all our hopes, and with a Big Band theme, we really held very high hopes indeed. We organised our own flights to the embarkation port of Miami, arriving the day before and staying ...

I accompanied my mother-in-law on Crystal Serenity's 10-day transatlantic from Miami to Lisbon. Prior to this voyage, I had been on only two other (cruise ship) cruises, both in 2005: a Mediterranean cruise on the Seabourn Spirit, which was unforgettably wonderful in every way; and a Caribbean cruise on the Caribbean Princess, which I often forget aboutnot because the experience was ...
