37 Crystal Symphony Tips


Sep 16, 2017

After remodel there will be new dining venues on Symphony that likely will replace "Casual Dinner Dining in Lido Cafe", but for sister ship this will likely continue until the 2018 dry dock for Serenity. If you cruise on Serenity prior to its 2018 dry dock do enjoy a Casual Dining Night at Lido Cafe. (It is first come and first seated so arrive early as it did sell out both evenings we enjoyed this option.)

Pre book Specialty restaurants before cruise. Reserve a specialty restaurant not the main dining room on Formal nights to enjoy better service. Try everything once and mix with other guests to make new friends with different interest.

Do NOT book a massage with the young man. I was certain he was a begginer masseuse, not knowledgeable with hot stones and deep tissue, only to learn he’d been with Crystal for ten years. Crystal needs to know how bad he was! I am still limping (two days later) from him pushing my thigh muscles around in an unknowledgable way.

This is an obstructed view cabin. Check deck layout because a few room down the hall had a much better less obstructed view.

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.

Research the ports in advance. I didn’t, and the excursion desk recommended a very expensive beach. Had we done our homework, we could have enjoyed the day and beach, much more.

Relax. Keep smiling, be happy! You’ll wake up in a new place everyday and you didn’t have to pack or unpack.
