I did not think Crystal Cruises could get any better! This was my sixth cruise with Crystal, and the new refurbishments on Crystal Serenity were incredible. The beds in the staterooms were amazing and so comfortable. The entertainment and food was excellent. It is the epitomy of the best luxury cruise ship.
As has always been the case, the crew is incredible for always going that extra step. It's the attitude onboard that's puts Crystal on top of luxury cruise lines, and it's something you can't understand until you cruise with them. I sailed from Barcelona to Athens which was one of my dream itineraries. I enjoyed the ports of Monte Carlo (an overnight), Florence, Rome, Sorrento (which was a favorite of mine) Kusadasi, Mykonos, and ending up in Athens. After 27 years of booking a hotel with a Parthenon view for all my clients that stay in Athens, I finally got to experience it firsthand. So worth it! It was breathtaking to view the Acropolis lit up at night from my window. This was spectacular, and it's an itinerary I plan to repeat again!
