Wonderful service by Tmichael28

Crystal service and food are superb. The cabins are small. They need a new ocean liner.

Awesome trip! by pjv0707

Ship: Crystal Serenity / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

My party and I loved this cruise. I might suggest Crystal take a good look at its tour operators, but the cruise itself was wonderful. I can't say enough good things about the support Crystal gave from beginning to end.

Fantastic Trip! by PLG

I am convinced that once you go Crystal, you cannot go back. We are looking to book another Crustal Cruise and want to go to South America, but it looks like that is not on the itinerary for next year. So I guess we have to see what else is available. I do prefer the ship tot he other because of Pulse, for the younger, under 75 year old crowd.

Avoid this cruise line if you have food allergies. This cruise line caters to older people but still has enough going on for younger people to be entertained, so it's a good choice for multi-generational groups like ours.
