In the past 3 years we have sailed with Silversea 4 times, with Regent 3, with Oceania 1 and with Seabourn 2 times. We had heard excellent comments about Crystal when their Mediterranean cruise caught our attention. We booked a penthouse suite and it was an overwhelming experience. After the other cruise lines we had become familiar with our expectations of Crystal were high, but the Crystal ...

My first cruise. What a great service. What a great food. This cruise line is the total relaxation experience. After three days you can sail on for months. The constant high quality of service, friendliness of all the staff plus the excellent restaurants on board where a great pleasure. The all inclusive works fine for me, no checks to be signed no bills to think about. The other travelers ...

Still readjusting to normal life after leaving Chrystal Symphony a few days ago. We had the most wonderful time as first time cruisers, I can't imagine cruising with anyone else. We had done our research and felt Crystal would be right for us yet were still overwhelmed by how perfect everything was. Our embarkation and disembarkation were swift and guided by CC staff. We were ...

This pair of back-to-back cruises were our 2nd and 3rd cruises. Ever since we cruised on Crystal Serenity in 2014, we have been hooked on Crystal. Symphony is a little smaller so it is a little more intimate too. Public spaces are great, but staterooms are a bit small vs the Serenity. We might eventually try another cruise line, but it will be hard to beat the only cruise line named a ...

Great first time experience on Crystal...won't be the last. The itinerary was fabulous. Disappointed we lost a sea day with the change in itinerary, but Crystal did a great job. Wish we had more time to experience the activities on the ship. Loved going to the islands in Greece that were not typical of Greek Island cruises. The people we encountered couldn't have been nicer or more ...

This was the first time I have sailed with Crystal. I had certain expectations engendered by what I had been told by friends who have made a life cruising around the world, and which were not all negative. I arrived back home wishing I could have stayed longer and as a frequent land-traveler I do not often say that. There is elegance in simplicity and, though the ship is not as technically modern ...

My wife, 16 year old daughter and I returned yesterday from a 7-night cruise onboard Crystal Symphony from Athens to Athens. This was our first Crystal cruise which we chose due to itinerary, date and curiosity as we have always wanted to try Crystal. My wife and I are in our mid forties and are addicted to cruising. I've completed over 70 cruises on all lines ranging from budget to very ...

We hope in writing this review that it may offer some help to potential first time crystal cruisers. It is based solely on our experience and we have split the review into perfect and less than perfect in an effort to produce a balanced report. We would stress “perfect and less than perfect” as opposed to good and bad - the overall experience for us was fantastic. What was perfect for us The ...
