Review summary

The Crystal folks really try to think of everything to make a passenger comfortable. The food and service are excellent and we will be likely to try another cruise with Crystal, even though a prior cruise with Regent may have had better overall excursions.

Good variety- some of the stage shows were outstanding and others were a little too “Vegas” in design . The singing and dancing was top drawer though.

Children's Programs

No kids on board!

We did an excursion/ guide was ok but somewhat hyper religious in her commentary and not completely in command of English idioms, leading to a few negative exchanges with a couple of people in my group.

Souda (Chania), Crete

Loved it and the excursion was loverly.

Santorini, Greece

4 out of 5
Excursion was not as great as hoped. Poor directions and follow thru on water bottle distribution from the local guide. Sa Torino is elf was super-crowded due to Easter week holiday.

Mykonos, Greece Did not visit port

I was ill that morning.
