Fantastic, relaxing and perfect cruise
Crystal Symphony Cruise Review to Caribbean
Review summaryThis was the most relaxing cruise we have taken. Because of the number of number of sea days they held an unbelievable Buffett in the general lounge area that took my breath away. It was absolutely beautiful and delicious. I have never seen anything like it. All of the chefs were introduced and acknowledged for their contributions, which was thoughtful and well deserved. The Christmas decorations were also top notch. There were "Santas Helpers" who made sure every detail was attended to on the ship. there were beautiful 6 foot Nutcrackers and reindeer and trees that made you believe Santa is coming to town. The decorations were terrific and really put us in the Christmas mood. The only observation I have is that the typical cruiser is going to be older because it is easier to navigate the ports on this cruise and it is a mild weather cruise. Many of the cruisers had walking problems. We had a great time and would recommend it is you just want to relax and see the sights.

If you sail on the Symphony, exact to be spoiled. venthough I would prefer a "younger" approach to entertainment and on board activities they are truly wonderful in every aspect of the trip. Weather prevented us from going to the Grand Cayman. We received an announcement at 8:00 am that the weather would not allow us to tether out. The captain told us we would be going to Cozemel instead. Revised activities were communicated within 1 hour and revised shore excursions communicate within 2 hours. They apparently have the Plan B concept mastered. I am impressed but not surprised. They are an amazing team.
