It's hard to pick one favorite thing as everything about Crystal cruising is wonderful. For the Pacific Coastal cruise being able to step on board in San Francisco was a big plus.  This was the first cruise I'd taken where the alcohol and tips were included, and that added to my pleasure. Daily tea parties, nightly sing-alongs at the piano bar, and a Ben and Jerry's ice cream bar top my list of favorite things.

Cabin / Stateroom

We selected the TBA cabin and received an upgrade to a veranda, cabins 9143 and 9145. They were perfect as we were next to the aft deck, which was rarely used by our fellow cruisers. Beds were super comfortable and perfectly appointed.

Ship Tip

Contact Chelsea Elworth at Luxury Cruises for excellent service.

Take the ship excursion to see Cannon Beach, Seaside, and Astoria. Each was very different and all so interesting.

Skip the $75 tea at the Empress. There are other places within a walking distances with great pastries and teas for a lot less. Crystal runs a free shuttle to that area.
