  1. I understand that Serenity no longer has DVD players. Is it the same for Symphony? Oh... P AND S …. 210 days till ALASKA!!!!!!!! 😀😀😀, Scott
  2. Looking to book 1037 (PH) on the Symphony Anyone stayed in this cabin ? Just wondering if the lifeboats are near the veranda. Wished they were tucked in like on Serenity. Thanks . . .
  3. Surprised to find 9031 and 9111 both listed as mid-ship. Seems to me one is far forward the other aft. These are our cabin choices and trying to decide. We've been in 8040 and did not have any motion issues but we not as far forward. As for 9111, we've never stayed in an aft cabin and my concern is vibrations. I remember dining in Silk when the seas were not really rough just some large swells and there was a lot of vibrations. As I recall, there might have been vibrations in the Galaxy Lounge but maybe it was just movement. Vibrations bother me more than movement since I've never gotten sea sick. Almost afraid to say that !! The cruise is in November in the Caribbean so not the Tasman Sea. Any comments would be great. Carole
  4. According to an email I received from Crystal today it seems 2019 is Symphony’s last season in Alaska - do you think that’s correct or simply Crystals marketers getting a little excitable? It seems a very certain statement that seems to cut off future Alaska cruises for Symphony - why would that be? From the email: LAST CALL! Crystal Symphony’s Final Alaska Season LEGENDARY ALASKA BOOK BY APRIL 30, 2019 Summer 2019 is your final opportunity to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Glacier Bay, the mesmerizing fjords of the Inside Passage, majestic mountains and Tlingit treasures on an all-inclusive journey during Crystal’s last season in Alaska.
  5. Experienced Crystal Cruisers, we are thinking of booking cabin 7010 on the Symphony. Since that's the promenade outside the window, and it's quite far forward, will the view be significantly blocked? Any advice will be appreciated. Michele
  6. Dear Fellow Cruisers: My husband and I have been on many cruises and we particularly like Seabourn and Regent. However, we would like to experience Crystal. We are debating whether or not to take the Singapore to Dubai trip next April and was wondering whether we could get feedback from those who have done this itinerary. I have trepidations regarding a forward deluxe verandah cabin as we had quite a bit of vibration in this location when we sailed on Seabourn in Europe and would not want to repeat the experience. Thanking you in advance for any insights that you can offer regarding the ship, cabin selection, ports, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Hello, we are interested in booking our first Crystal cruise. We like a balcony that is a bit larger and for the cost we do not need the size or the amenities of a PH so I was looking at the Deluxe Veranda cabins at the aft and I also see a few cabins at the forward that may also have larger balconies. I might tend to like the forward better as when on the balcony I prefer to look to the aft and I think the wind would not be as bad. We had something similar on Oceania and really enjoyed it. Does anyone have any experience in cabins 8009 or 8010 - ?? I tried to do an internet search but could not find any comments. Many Thanks!
  8. My husband and I are celebrating an anniversary while on our upcoming Alaskan Cruise. Any suggestions on where to dine that evening? We are new to Crystal and enjoy all foods, but steak/seafood are the favorites. Thanks.
  9. Wondering if anyone has stayed in this cabin on the Symphony. Have seen Roy's great cabin pictures and the obstruction out the window does not look too bad at all. Can't tell what is across from the cabin and wondering if there are any possible noise issues to be concerned about in that location. Looking at the Holiday Sailing to Hawaii from San Diego in December, so lots of sea days. Reviews from these sailings in the past have been very good --- so looking forward to it! Thanks for any information you could provide.
  10. I would really appreciate a couple of close up pictures of the gym equipment on Symphony. In particular, of the Chest Press (not concerned with any of the cardio equipment) and any other weightlifting pieces. Thanks!
  11. Looking at the ship's deck plans, I noticed that many of the cabins in this category on deck 7 do not appear to have any obstruction, rather an unhindered view over the promenade. Can someone explain/enlighten me please. Many thanks and Happy New year to one and all.
  12. View is described as partially obstructed. Does anyone know how obstructed?
  13. Jasper Hernando, wine keeper and bistro waiter was named employee of the year 2018 for the Crystal Symphony at a gala crew event on March 1. Congratulations, Jasper. Very well deserved.
  14. I have just been informed that Symphony Dec 1st 2019 OCS191201-10 will now embark from Miami instead of Ft Lauderdale. I understand that if you have arranged to fly into Ft Lauderdale Crystal will transfer you but obviously best to check with your TA if you are booked. Philip
  15. In December we are booked on the President's Panama canal cruise on the Symphony. From those who have sailed on such cruises previously, besides hearing the latest updates and future plans for Crystal cruises, are there any other exclusive events or perks that we might expect on this cruise.
  16. Looking for pics of the Seabreeze PH on Symphony. Thanks . . . .
  17. Hi All, I was lucky to enjoy a Jazz themed cruise in 2017 on Serenity and many of the performances were in the Stardust venue, since there is not a "Stardust" on Symphony, I wonder... where will these sets be? Any thoughts?
  18. A wonderful, wonderful cruise. Rarely on a long cruise (19 days) are you delighted everyday, but we were. There were many highlights, but sitting in the front row of seats in the Starlight watching the Latin dance team shows, all four of them, were the most startling, exciting and satisfying minutes of entertainment we have ever seen in our ten years on Crystal.
  19. We are delighted to be sailing in Crystal Symphony again after being exclusive to Serenity for three years. It has been so heartwarming to be welcomed home by the wonderful officers, staff and crew. The ship is sparkling! Holiday decorations are appearing all over the ship! The ship looks brand new, with changes all over! I was was concerned about the changes to the MDR, now Waterside, but my worries were unfounded. There appear to be more round tables than it had initially, and less of the line up of tables for two. Service has been attentive and menu selections well executed. As usual, the food everywhere is TOO good! Its terrific to to see crew, who we have known for years, moving up to senior or management positions. Crystal has the lowest attrition rate in the industry, and crew know that they can grow. Crystal has upped its game in terms of entertainment. Music and performances are all over the ship, there are a bounty of choices! All for now, off to enjoy Turks and Caicos! Ricki
  20. Wednesday 12/19...the calm before the storm. Packing has been underway for three weeks for some...the magical 50 lb limit...I don't need 18 shirts...we can utilize the on board dry cleaning and laundry facilities. Coordination of the family arrivals to NoLa, well they know what time the boat leaves so they better be on board or....see you in Cozumel. Lady Jean and I plan to board ASAP on Saturday, head for Lido and a cheezeborger and fries. We will await the arrival of our four kids, their hubby's and wives and our two adorable grand-girls, 8 and 2. After almost 20 months of waiting, we are poised to get BOARDING PASSES this morning! Two days in NoLa seeking food and tunes and maybe some more food. I am cutting way back on gear. No binocs, big cameras, suit, jackets, a few dress shirts and ties for the BTO nights. Gonna go with a tiny little Canon pocket cam. 12mpand a nice little zoom. I figure with 10 adults, we can share pictures. I hope to include some daily notes and some pics to share as the two weeks progress. Merry Christmas and Happy Prosperous New Year to all. Geo and Jean
  21. We will be on next months cruise from Valpo to Tahiti for 16 days. Is it likely that they will have a Vintage room wine lunch? Also, will they do a Gala Buffet even though none of the Sundays are sea days?
  22. We were first time Crystal cruisers up until this past week when we exited the Symphony in New Orleans after a 14 day Caribbean jazz cruise. We are foodies who place food quality near the top of our list when booking a cruise and were pleased with the quality found on Crystal. We took a bunch of pictures of what was offered and made a facebook page called, "Aaron and Marlyn's Crystal Symphony Foodie Cruise".I know I should have included the menu that went along with the items and provided more detail for each photo before they were devoured, but I hope you can enjoy the quality of presentation that the chefs created. I think we've become Crystal loyalists as a result. The link can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/crystalsymphonyfoodie/ Enjoy!
  23. Crystal recently posted this video of Jon Ashton talking about dining venues on Crystal Symphony https://youtu.be/7STuPs31mpc
  24. I am considering an excursion to Waiheke, which requires us to collect ferry tickets from the Fullers ticket office on the wharf around 8.30 to catch the 9am ferry. Crystal Symphony is scheduled to dock at Auckland at 8am. I would be grateful if anyone could shed some light on how close the ferry office is to the dock and whether this is doable or too tight Many thanks
  25. Symphony gym hours? I generally prefer early or late, hence the question.
