  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah

I went on this cruise with a group of girl friends and we had a very good time.

However, I will say that the ship was a big disappointment for me. Crystal is supposed to be nicer than the standard large cruise ships, and I was disappointed that the ship was old and a bit worn around the edges. I've been on nicer ships which are supposedly not as highly rated.

I will say that the food was excellent in pretty much every venue. Especially the Asian specialty restaurant.

The ambassadors were very nice and fun to dance with.

I liked that everything was included, with not extras to pay for on board.

The entertainment was also very poor compared to other cruises I have been on. Cheesy acts, marginal talent. The classical musical trio was really good though.

One bad spot in service was the DJ for the night club. Rude, bad attitude, and not welcoming at all. He doesn't belong on a cruise ship.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah

Cabin was nice, the bathroom was nicer than most other cruises I've been on with marble sinks.

The room, as with the rest of the ship was worn, and clearly not recently refurbished.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Olympia Archeological Tour

Could not understand tour guide. It was really frustrating because this destination is not very exciting to see, it all hinges on the information you get and we couldn't understand what she was saying. I was in a group of 7, we all had quite a bit of difficulties understanding.

I'd skip this port and excursion.
