This was an amazing cruise and adventure and it exceed our expectations. We are very glad we chose to cruise and as we have mentioned several times we felt very safe.
Before we address all of the lovely comments we received, be sure to check back to our Blog sometime next week as a new adventure unfolds. When we update the Blog next week we will move this Blog over to the previous blog section and the new Blog will be under current Blog. Thank you everyone for following along.
Our apologies for not acknowledging the many comments we received. When the internet was poor we were challenged to get the daily posts up and didn't focus on the comments. This all improved for much of the second cruise but we were playing catch up. We have read them all and we appreciate each and everyone of them.
Bob and Jeannie...Thank you for following along and for your very nice comments.
Gill....Yes there were some stressful moments including some changing testing requirements prior to the cruise but in spite of this we are very thankful we traveled and we had a lovely time. Thank you for your nice comments and for following along. Gill we also wanted to thank you for your other comments which are very much appreciated.
Gary...You are very right. We wish you a wonderful cruise and we look forward to hearing all about it. Travel safely and have a great time.
Becky....Thank you for following along and like you we had such nice feelings seeing the crew.
Jonathan....Thank you so much. Usually we can juggle all of this. The challenge was the first cruise when the internet slowed but we made it through this plus the many questions on CC. The good news is we had a wonderful time. Jonathan... We had around 600 guests on each of the two segments.
Carol...Thank you so much for following along and for your lovely travels. We really appreciate them.
Alison....Like you there were many first time Crystal Cruisers who loved the cruise and we hope you feel the same way when you board on October 2. Travel safely and all our best.
Susan....You certainly have a lot of cruises with Crystal which is wonderful. Good things happen in time and hopefully that next cruise will come soon for you.
Mary... Thank you for your comments and we hope we will sail with you on a future cruise. Thank you again.
Carole...So sorry we didn't get to your comment earlier but am glad we were able to address it for you via e-mail. We wish you the very best.
Karen....We loved your comment about licking the plate. I am sure Crystal won't mind. LOL. We wish you all the beset on the October 9 cruise. We hope you have as good a time as we have had.
Elaine....Thank you so much for your comments. We also miss sailing with you.
Gary....We would love to blame the spelling of the Golf Pros last name on spell check and the internet. What we can say is when we put all of this together if we took the time to proof-read everything we would have no time to take photos or experience the cruise so the blog would be pretty boring. LOL.
Patricia....We normally take the PH when we sail Serenity and a few times the PS and a couple of times the CP. This time we did take one of the four CP's (Crystal Penthouses) because we knew Anne Marie would spend more time in the room than on any prior cruise. It worked out great. It is amazing. The ship was filled at around 60%. Thank you again for following along and for your comments.
Tina...Thank you for your very thoughtful comments and for following along.
Bette and Donne....Thank you for your comments. Other than the need to wear masks at time when off ship in the Bahamas (depends were you are and what you are doing) there was no mask mandate for guests and very few wore masks indoors.
Gary...Thank you for your comments and your observations are spot-on. We ate in the room a lot because of Anne Marie's situation having all breakfasts and lunches in the room. Normally we do have breakfast in the room and for lunch would go to Market Place but not on this cruise. We had half the dinners in the room and the other half at the dining venues. Yes, Keith enjoyed the creamy tuna with his tasty salad. We were in a Crystal Penthouse as you noted.
Bill....Thank you for your comments and we wish you all the best on your May, 2022 cruise.
Susan....You are correct. The Reflections program truly shows that nothing has changed and we thought the amount of enrichment and entertainment on the schedule was truly amazing. Thank you for following along.
Dick...We passed along your greetings to Ricardo.
Joan....You are so right that it was emotional boarding the ship. Lots of emotions on embarkation day. Very special. Thank you for following along.
Nicole...We hope you enjoyed the cruise as much as we did. Thank you for your comments.
Jeff...You are most welcome and thank you so much for your comments and for following along.
Again, please check back next week as we start a new adventure.
Anne Marie & Keith
