Last night Crystal Cruises premiered a new production show, “My Life: The Music of Billy Joel”

ABOARD THE CRYSTAL SERENITY – Last night the Crystal Ensemble of Singers and Dancers premiered a new production, “My Life: The Music of Billy Joel,” to a full house. From the standing ovations given, I would say it was a smash hit. Headliner James Fox, who played the piano and sang as Joel, nailed his role. He was great, the eight singers and dancers were great, the two back-up singers (who are usually the lead vocalists) added …

Crystal’s passengers are loyal and sailings fill up fast

ABOARD THE CRYSTAL SERENITY – Crystal Cruises only operates two luxury ships but it certainly does know how to fill them up. Crystal passengers are extremely loyal and return time after time. So far on this cruise, I have only met one person who is on their first Crystal cruise. At the Crystal Society cocktail party last night, several passengers were honored for reaching significant milestones. Dr. and Mrs. Nancy Kaplan were on their 60th and 61st …

During my earlier Crystal Cruises, dating back 15 and 20 years, there really were only two options: The main dining room and the Lido. However, even then Crystal was known for fine dining. They have only …

It’s hard to make choices among all of the activities offering on Crystal Serenity — and all are included!

ABOARD THE CRYSTAL SERENITY – We have now had at least three days at sea on this trip and I am only beginning to fully comprehend the wide range of activities offered on this ship. Free of charge, mind you. Now, Crystal does know the demographic of its passengers: 50+, and even leaning to an older group on this repositioning itinerary. The activities reflect that. So far we have been in cold climes and so, with the …

New York City: An emotional visit to Ground Zero

ABOARD THE CRYSTAL SERENITY – Yesterday morning we arrived in New York City and our plan for the day consisted of only one activity: To visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum which opened earlier this year in Lower Manhattan at “Ground Zero,” where the twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed 13 years ago after a terrorist attack. While the ship did offer several shore tours that included this, we decided to plan our …
