Just Back From West Coast Wayfarer

Recommended Posts

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.

I too was on this voyage.  It was great.  We were on our 30th anniversary so I splurged for a PH with a butler.

Prego twice, UmiUma twice, Waterside twice, Churrascaria once and Silk once.

All were great and service on the entire ship was outstanding.

I can try to answer any questions.

Question to 2cruiseagain and Howard: did either of you order a fish dish in Waterside (e.g., halibut, snapper, sole) and did you ever find it a tad overcooked?

 

It's wonderful to hear your positive comments. Very glad you both enjoyed so much.

Was this a cruise along the West Coast of the US?

It started in SFO and ended in Vancouver. 

Never had a bad fish dish!

The churrascaria might have been my least favorite but only because I ate too much!

 

We stayed at the new Virgin Hotel in SFO pre-cruise. I have to say I was really let down.

Glad to hear all of that. Sometimes I think if your servers don't get you into the right rhythm at Churrascaria, it can be a disappointment.

 

That's certainly a bummer about the Virgin Hotel. One never knows, does one?!
