  1. Great memories of the Milford sound meet-up!
  2. Just off the Grand: did not see such a flyer. hmm. Bought more FCC and did not book. oh well.
  3. Just came across this thread. We just completed a Hong Kong to Tokyo + Tokyo to San Francisco (B2B) 5/9- 6/17, 2019 on the Crystal Symphony. One flight to HK! Stayed in the Marco Polo Hong Kong hotel that is adjacent to the Ocean Terminal Pier. Smooth transfer to the ship. ---Missed the extreme heat and HK demonstrations.
  4. We have boarded the Grand many times for West Coast ports and the UK presentation has her listed for future European sailings. Sad. -- We have had the pleasure of sailing in the Med with the Grand when it first was launched...memories.
  5. May the newbies get the Crystal pixie dust and sign up for future cruises!
  6. Why wait to voice your disappointment about the speaker and scheduling of White Night. And of course the post cruise input is a must.
  7. Pardon: localized where? floor/stateroom location please.
  8. Not sure it is the infamous C. Crud: I got laid low mid-way while on b2b Hong Kong to San Francisco. I was approaching quietly clear and then wham SF's allergy season...still hacking with a Marlene Dietrich/Garbo Bingo caller's voice. sheesh.
  9. The posts are whetting my appetite for another Baltic cruise. -- too long since we first visited this region.
  10. I enjoy bringing small needlepoint projects and a couple balls of yarn to knit up a shawl that I would either use or have a gift ready for giving. --I might buy a small journal to jot thoughts or observations (some folks might want to bring coloring books) or drawings of places/people.
  11. Our first time request for guest visitors - we made the request from home: some time in April for the SF date. With the passing of time ...everything is fuzzy.
  12. A crowd piled around the staffer and all were well behaved. We are allowed 4 guests and we decided to take them to the Brazilian/Lido dining venue. I met with the HW away from the table to have him write up the tab. Our final bill listed the drink charge seperate from the dining tab. --The 4 person guest number was strictly enforced because a visiting family of 2 adults and 3 kids could not board: the grandparents walked the mother and kids around the ship and then left with them to dine in SF with their dad. Days prior to docking in SF, I had checked with the front desk re the listing of our guests for boarding for reassurance that they were listed. The Front desk didn't have what ID I had faxed to guest services.
  13. Enjoyed reading your summary of a great cruise. We will be cruising again in Alaska on a 7 day roundtrip from Vancouver in September and will look forward to seeing Shane. Russ is also a great CD for Crystal.
