Memphis, United States1 contribution
had previously sailed Crystal and it was an exceptional experience. I canceled my cruise on May 9th for a September 20th cruise due to COVID-19 and have not received a refund as of today. So going on 5 months and the refund was suppose to processed in 90 days. I have called customer service 3 times and get the same asinine runaround every time. No one knows when my refund will be process. Crystal is a cruise line that prides themselves on service, unfortunately there is a complete and total lack of service with their refund process which is completely unacceptable. I will never book with them again and advise you not to either.

The room was very nicely decorated clean and stylish. The route was very interesting with stops in Dubai, Doha and other ports. The cruise offered a big variety of food and entertainment. We were treated very well by the staff and I can highly recommend this cruise line.

Our cruise started in Hong Kong and ended in Tokyo with stops in S Korea, Taiwan, Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Osaka, Shanghai. The cabin is very comfortable. There are a number of specialty restaurants on board that are varied and delicious. The service is impeccable. There was a variety of entertainment including a regular cast with great singing and dancing, a comedian, a magician and more. My favorite was a Chinese Circus Troupe that came on for one night in Shanghai. Days at sea are very busy...they bring on guest lecturers. One lecturer we had was Scott Kelly...the astronaut who has spent more time on the international space station than any other astronaut. Overall a wonderful trip.

Fantastic ship! The crew is very attentive to all your needs. The ship is extremely well taken care of, with staff continually cleaning hand rails and doors and utensils. The buffet is very well run as the staff serve the food to you so no one with dirty paws is handling the food before you. I would recommend this cruise line even during Corona outbreak.
