I beg to differ with you!
Crystal Serenity Cruise Review to Panama Canal, Central America
Ship: Crystal Serenity
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
We have traveled on cruises ranging from Carnival to Sea Dream Yacht Club and everything in between (Princess, Cunard, Special Expedition, Sea Cloud, River Cloud) and have decided that Crystal's slogan "The difference is Crystal clear" is very appropriate! The differences at first are subtle, like the well lite large closet and twin glass vessel sinks, tub and shower, etc. Then you begin to notice the wonderful furniture throughout the ship's decks, pool area, etc. Then you notice the service and attention. The food was just wonderful and there were no extras fees for so many things you ALWAYS paid for on most other cruises, including the additional restaurants aviailable with reservations (but no added charge!). We loved the size (800 passengers) and we have been on ships from 70 people to 4,000!

Pros: We took the Panama Canal cruise just this past March and thought absolutely everything was wonderful....and we have been on cruises from Carnival to The Sea Cloud and Sea Dream Yacht Club!
Cons: our only complaint was lack of help from Crystal at the airport in Costa Rica coming home
