We have been on 47 Crystal cruises. For 20 years we have been on the pre- Holiday and Holiday cruise on Serenity. Your concerns are ours as well as the Waterside layout with all the 2 tops are too close together. They would have to remove tables and stagger the dining times to perhaps 5:30, 7:00, and 8:30 fixed seatings. We stay in a penthouse suite and like your idea of spacing out fewer people in the specialty restaurants.
What concerns us the most is the inability to conform to the social distancing in the bars, theaters, hallways, and elevators. We suggest that unless you are in your cabin everyone should wear a mask until you get to the Cove, Avenue, or Waterside. It is perplexing how they could operate the Bistro and Marketplace unless they assigned staff to serve all the food.
We look forward to reading Crystal’s thoughts next week regarding the steps they propose on the ships due to Covid19.
Stay well and all the best to the fabulous Crystal crew and our fellow cruisers.
