Review summary

This was our very first cruise and we were pleased to choose Crystal. We had an amazing experience and we met very nice people. People were generally very friendly. Frank Popowski invited us to see hi penthouse and I must say it fabulous! I think Frank spoke so highly the cruise line I think you should hire him to do some marketing for you or offer him some sort of recompense or reward!
