Miisleading advertising hides the truth. This is now below 4 star.

Comparisons are important, and a good way to paint a valid description. Crystal is considered one of the best 6 star line if you will. We've cruised with them previously which we enjoyed and can serve as an easy ...

Misrepresentation by the cruise line

This cruise was misrepresented by Silverseas. They called it a cruise from Southampton to Montreal. We paid top dollar for this. This was a repositioning cruise, as told to us by many staff members. Repositioning ...

Sadly Failed To Meet Expectations

First, we have been on ten O cruises (over 30 total) so there are grounds for a fair comparison and constructive criticism. The cruise as a whole was disappointing and in many respects discouraging. As long-time ...
