  1. Hi: as a Solo Crystal traveler, I agree with what has already been said. But, when looking at the value of knowing that the Single Supplement is less then most lines, I feel that the value for the dollar is unbelievable especially when one looks at what is included in the cruise fare. Howard
  2. Glad you had a great time. Also happy to see that the water problem was fixed and may the hot water flow continuously. Howard
  3. I didn’t report The spa men’s shower so for me it was 2 days, then I stopped using it. Howard
  4. The only problem with hot water I had was with the shower in the Men’s Spa on my last trip on Symphony this past June. Howard
  5. I recently took the Best of Pike Place Market in Seattle. Crystal cost $128 online price $48. Included in Crystal price: Bus to Pike Place, Tip, and if u didn’t want to walk back to ship arrangements were made via Uber to get u back. In addition, a crew member was part of our group and a representative from Crystal’s shore team followed us around as well. I attempted to give an additional tip to our guide. She refused to accept it as the tip was included in the price of the tour. Howard
  6. This was my 4th Crystal Cruise over the last 2 yrs and 3rd on Symphony in the last year. I thought that this was the BEST one yet. service over the top. Food outstanding. We had a problem with seating one night in Waterside, but with a word to the waiter we were moved to a table away from the Wait Stand. I didn’t eat at Silk but members of my party did and were surprised to find that they liked it after hearing from me and other comments on this Board. UmiUma, out did itself but I thought Prego was just off it’s usual self. Entertainment was good and the new Icon Show was very good and full of energy. This show replaced the Elton John show. I’m now going into withdrawals pending my return to Symphony in November for a B2B. Howard
  7. Do what my daughter does, SHOP!!!

  9. Hi everyone: while aboard HAL a couple of months ago everyone was playing Pickleball. While I haven’t play either sport, Paddle Tennis is noted in Reflections. My goal is to learn the game as I’m going to be spending a number of months on Symphony in the coming year. ps: any suggestions on racquet section would be great as well . thanks in advance! Howard
  10. Thanks to everyone for starting this link into Life aboard,Symphony. Have lots of fun and enjoyment. Howard
  11. Thanks to everyone for posting. If you ever want to experience international baseball a little closer to home try the World Baseball Classic held every few years by Major League Baseball. Those Japanese and South Korea fans are great. The next one will be held in 2020/21. Information about the next Classic can be found at the WBC web site. Howard
