Default Love it

What a great idea. I think I'd love this opportunity. I hope other cruise lines take a page from Crystal's book and start such a program.

Default Voluntourism, what a lovely word

I can't afford Crystal but I love the idea. I hope the other lines pick up on this. It would definitely be a factor in which cruise line I choose
