This was our first Crystal cruise.  The food and staff was outstanding.  We enjoyed the quality of the lecturers and the selection of excursions.  Many of the excursions sold out but the ship staff was very accommodating on wait listing for availability.

Akaroa is a nice little town. We ventured to Christchurch which was a long bus ride. You might want to spend time in Akaroa.
