Crystal Symphony

September 2015 - Crystal Symphony to Canada, New England, New York

Joi De Canada

Crystal always does a fantastic job!  The ship, crews, food were A++.  The only reason this review can't give 5 stars is due to the ports of call and therefore the excursion experiences.  We booked the cruise fairly late (only 2 months in advance) and were wait listed for all excursions.  So the selection was extremely limited.  If you've never done a cold water cruise and seen colorful, sleepy fishing towns, then this is a must do.  However, having cruised Patagonia, Alaska, and several other cold water itineraries, these ports were nothing new.  Additionally, these ports are fairly small and the cruise industry is fairly new to them (except Montreal and Quebec).  The infrastructure at these smaller ports don't allow high quality shore excursions that I expect from Crystal.  Again, if a first time cold water cruiser - don't let that stop you from going, but book your excursions early!
