  1. My son and I were on that cruise as well, no problems. Howard
  2. Hi everyone: that voyage will be my last leg of my B2B2B on Symphony, til January, when I reboard For the sailing between San Diego and Hong Kong
  3. Adrian thank you for reinforcing my opinion of this leg of my month long cruise on Symphony. I can’t think of anything to complain about. Everything has just been outstanding all around the ship, from the food, the entertainment, the service as well as my fellow passengers . I even met two couples who live in my retirement community. I must also agree that both Silk and the Steakhouse are much improved from my first visits two years ago I also attended The Vintage Room for the first time and it was a real treat. Not only was everythingoutstanding but one of the guest was a contemporary of my wife in the insurance industry and hearing him talk about Kathy, in such a positive light was very rewarding to me. Here are some pictures along with the menu sorry about the pictures could not figure out how the pictures ended up the wrong way
  4. I received a call concerning the Vintage Room the other day and I was only offered dinner. No mention concerning lunch So, I signed up for dinner on November 5 at 7PM. Thank the Lord for OBC. Howard PS: The M&M was great. Best turnout that I have attended. I even met 2 couples from my 55 and over Community, Laguna Woods, in California
  5. Stockman1990, is correct. The M&M will be in Palm Court at 6:30 on Tuesday 10/29. sorry for posting the wrong venue. Should have worn my hearing aid. Howard
  6. To all CC’er on Symphony, per the front desk The M&M will be held on Tuesday at 6:30 in The Churrascaria,Deck 11 Howard
  7. I’m currently using Luggage Concierge for my October 25th, Crystal Symphony, voyage out of New Orleans.So far so good . UPS picked up and delivered my 2 bags to their Agent. Will wait and see if arrives in my Cabin, Friday.
  8. Hi I called the Castle yesterday and the message on the phone said the Crystal program is ending,January 1, 2020. Tickets only good Monday - Thursday til then. Howard
  9. 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
  10. Glad you had a great time. Also happy to see that the water problem was fixed and may the hot water flow continuously. Howard
  11. I didn’t report The spa men’s shower so for me it was 2 days, then I stopped using it. Howard
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Do what my daughter does, SHOP!!!
