Sounds like a good ship's visit Dave. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Crystal and some superb photos too. :D

Thanks again for joining us Dave and SandraDJ. I'm pleased you enjoyed the visit and were impressed by the ship. I found myself looking through all the special offers when I got home so maybe one day

Thanks for the invitation Moira. And it resulted in us booking another cruise with you - just not a Crystal cruise! ;)

I had an email from a cruising friend who had just got back from a trip on Crystal Symphony. She enjoyed the trip and thought the food was excellent, as well as the included drinks. The downsides were the noise that came from the cabin next door, and the demographic of the passengers. She is a few years younger than me (in the decade below, I think) and seemed to be one of the youngest people on board. She also commented on the size of the dance floor in the disco. There wasn't much late night activity, other than the casino.

I still have Crystal on my wish list, though!
Booked cruises:

Ovation of the Seas - Inaugural/Maiden voyage round trip out of Southampton - April 2016
Britannia - Southampton to Bermuda (repo) - October 2016
Norwegian Epic - March 2017

I thought the dance floor was quite funny really. It looked about 10 feet in diameter and the room it was in was very out-of-keeping with the rest of the ship. As far as demographics go, I've always liked being one of the youngest on board but it doesn't happen often nowadays!

Thanks for an interesting review - pictures often speak louder than words anyway. Yes, it does look spacious and relaxing - would be my kind of ship, apart from the prices and the need to fly.
