Crystal Cruises have been voted the World’s Best Cruise Line more times than any other cruise line in history and it is not difficult to understand why. Everything from your morning cappuccino to pre-dinner cocktail (you must try the Crystal Martini) is included, even the fitness classes in which to work off all those wonderful dining experiences. Eating in the famous Nobu, Umi Uma or Italian Prego are also included in the price of your Crystal Cruise. European trained crew give six-star service onboard Crystal Symphony & Crystal Serenity.
Looking for something completely different? Consider Crystal’s yacht, Crystal Esprit. Just 62 guests sail in an atmosphere of easy elegance and carefree luxury to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations including the Seychelles and the Greek Islands.
Jo has cruised on Crystal Serenity enjoying one of the sampler cruises. “Many are put off by the size of the Crystal ships in comparison to their ultra luxury competitors but don’t be. The result is space. Space to relax in, no struggling to find a sun bed. Space to have a quiet drink in, no queuing at the bar waiting to be served. Space to dine in with plenty of tables for two in all the restaurants. The staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful. Cruising with Crystal gives you the opportunity to sample the menus of Master Chef Nobu at Silk Road, Umi Uma & the Sushi Bar or fabulous Italian cuisine at Prego. Both speciality restaurants are complimentary – no additional cover charges to pay. The Avenue Saloon was a particular favourite in the evenings, nothing beats live jazz. So why not try Crystal I know you will, like I did, discover the ‘Difference is Crystal Clear’”
My Cruise Highlight: Monte Carlo – walking the Grand Prix course and having a drink in Casino Square!
