  1. Thanks for your thoughts on the Emerald. We are booked on her in July and was a little concerned about her age. great picture too.
  2. I have to concur about too much noise between connecting cabins. We were on the Royal and I would not book connecting cabins again. Not horrible, but annoying.
  3. Thank you so much for taking us on your world adventure. You are always so positive and grateful that you are able to go on another grand adventure. Looking forward to reading along.
  4. Well I have the same sentiments about Keith’s blog. I have learned so much from all his experiences on Crystal, so another big thank you to Keith. ps. Bob, I think we might be on the same cruise at the end of September. This will be our first Crystal cruise. We were booked, but then The old Crystal went bankrupt. We are very excited.
  5. too funny…… that is exactly what I order on embarkation. Great way to start my cruise.

    New York port

    Thank you so much for your advice. I was thinking I might be a little too optimistic about an 11:30 departure. I’m going to sfo so there are a lot of non stops. I think the 3: 00 sounds more doable.
  8. We were in the pinnacle suite on the konsingdam. I can only speak about how we were treated. Absolutely spectacular. A bottle of champagne, not a cheap brand, was a gift from the captain. You should be escorted to your cabin when you board and escorted off at debarkation. They even held an elevator for us and my family of 18. we had family over to our cabin and extra glasses and beverages were provided. The Neptune concierge oversaw every detail. We were treated like royalty. This was a very special experience. Enjoy.

    New York port

    Thanks for all the info. I usually fly United so Newark sounds the best choice. I would like to book a 11:30 flight. Does this sound reasonable?
  10. How exciting. You are always one of my favorite bloggers. I know you will enjoy every minute.

    New York port

    We will be on the September serenity cruise ending in New York. I’m looking at air options and was wondering where the Serenity will dock.
  12. these are my thoughts exactly. The dining room is worth every penny. Of course certain suites have this perk already.
  13. I loved club orange , less people and better service.

    Deposit

    Thank you for the info. I lost my deposit when the original Crystal went bankrupt so I’m a little leery about how soon I put down my deposit. It is encouraging to hear about the new crystal and how much everyone loves the experience.

    Deposit

    Does anyone know how much Crystal wants for a deposit and when final payment is due. This would be for an eight day Canada New England cruise next year.
  16. Thanks for all this info. We are sailing in July too. Is there a separate area for club class dining? I have sailed the Emerald, but several years ago.
  17. So there is not a separate entrance or area for club ora.
  18. You have Club Orange since you have a suite. Fabulous experience.
  19. we love that hotel, thanks to your recommendation years ago ! thanks for your posts as they are always entertaining.
  20. Thanks for the info. Will keep checking.
  21. Last year we went on a comedy cruise out of San Francisco. It was fabulous. I’m hoping they schedule that again, but can’t find any info. am I missing something?
  22. Thank you. You really are such a great help with anything Crystal.
  23. We are finally going to book a cruise on Crystal. We had a cruise booked when the old Crystal went bankrupt. We lost our deposit ,but with all the great reviews we are going to try again. So what is the difference between classic and new design. We haven't decided the category yet. Either double veranda or Aquamarine. Are the tvs across from the beds or at an angle. Of course with Alaska's scenery, I'm not sure how much tv watching we will do. We usually like aft suites, but on a smaller ship is the motion that bad on front . Thanks for any help.
  24. We are thinking of a Great Lakes cruise. has anyone cruised on Pearl cruiseline ?
