  1. Thanks. Yes, I can see that the living room looks a little narrow. I have been in a different Grand Suite where the living room was bigger, but a much smaller balcony... I guess it's a trade off.
  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to post these great pics. Other than the noise/vibration when coming into port, were you happy with the suite? I'm assuming the bed is King size? It looks smaller in the pics...
  3. Yes, agreed. We also felt it in the Owner's Suite on Riviera and again in the Master Suite on Explorer. The benefit of the beautiful balcony more than made up for it in our opinion.
  4. Thank you so much. We have had this problem (shaking while docking) before when in an Aft suite. Hope you enjoy the rest of your cruise despite this problem, and look forward to seeing pics whenever you manage it.
  5. I'm sure you will have a fantastic time. I so wish I could see a pic of the suite now, but I guess I will just have to be patient😊
  6. Thank you both for responding! Gerry - can't wait to see your pics. I know you have been waiting a long time for this cruise, and am looking forward to hearing what you think of the ship and suite.
  7. I am trying to find pics of this suite, without success. Anyone have recent experience of it? I did find some references to it from a couple of years ago referring to noise, but nothing since.
  8. Enjoying following along with you. Hope you have a wonderful cruise😊
  9. I'd like to add my thanks for such an interesting and fair minded review of your cruise which I hope you enjoyed, despite the 'work' which you certainly put in! I agree with much of what you say, although of course many of the comparisons are between Regent's new ship and Crystal's older ship. It would be interesting to compare Crystal's new ship, assuming there will be one, with Explorer and/or Splendor. I hope you enjoy your reunion with your kitties and now you can look forward to your next adventure.
  10. So enjoying reading this thread with my morning coffee each day... completely agree with most of your comments. I actually quite like having the photographer, because it's one of the very few occasions when we get a pic of both of us together but I understand what you're saying. Umi Uma is our favourite dining venue also. I love the yellowtail sashimi and also the wagyu sashimi - can't get enough of it. We went to Nobu in London a couple of weeks ago and the food was really no better. The bill for the 2 of us was close to £600, excluding tip. I can't believe we have never been to Avenue Saloon, so will try it on our transatlantic in November.
  11. Hi TC, looking forward to following along and hearing your views on Crystal.
  12. I have just seen this thread and it may be that you have all the info that you need by now, but just wanted to add that we had to cancel a cruise within the UK cancellation period and, despite the 10% rule, Crystal agreed to switch our booking to a different one for an admin fee (can't remember how much, but minor). We then needed to switch it again and Crystal co-operated, but told us that if we needed to do it again we would lose the 10%, which we felt was more than fair.
  13. Thoroughly enjoying this thread. This is a cruise we almost did a few times, and you have made it come alive and a strong possibility for next year. Thank you so much.
  14. I think you will enjoy the CP suite - are you on Symphony or Serenity? You will be thoroughly spoilt!
  15. Thanks all, that's pretty much what I assumed but thought I'd ask anyway...
