  1. That’s great to hear, appreciate the feedback! I think we are going to stay in 8025. When looking at the exterior of Serenity, it appears that this cabin has a split railing where half is the bar design, and the other half is closed in on the lower half (like the rest of the forward balconies).
  2. Thanks so much, Keith, for your insights on state room location. We'll have to weigh our options here and see if a mid ship is still available.
  3. We have been assigned 8025 (Balcony Guarantee) which is listed as a B3 Cabin. It appears to be more mid ship vs. the very front of the ship, but would you recommend that we try to move more mid ship (including even upgrading room types if possible?) We noticed that this is the last cabin on the "bump out", which means that the railing will be solid. Should we keep the cabin for the larger balcony space? We are doing a summer Med. itinerary, so not too many concerns being forward as seas tend to be calmer in this region/season. Thanks in advance- we are new to Crystal and appreciate the input!
  4. I raise the question, because if you look at the ship externally, it shows these balconies don’t have the traditional railing so if you’re sitting down or in the room you can’t really see the water?
  5. All All, We are new to Crystal and will be sailing on our first itinerary in September in The Med.! We are reserved in a forward balcony, Deck 8, but have noticed that we’re one of the last balconies before the balconies get smaller (Room 8025). Does anyone have experiences with 8025, or balconies that have a “larger” size toward the front of this ship? Having now looked at the exterior of the ship, I’m a bit concerned that our view will be blocked. Appreciate any recommendations in advance!
  6. We have an upcoming 7 night (technically 8 day) itinerary. Looks like from the comment above 7 “days” or less does not have a BTO evening? Does that include 7 night itineraries? I was really looking forward to a potential supper club dining experience. Assume if there’s no BTO evening, they won’t offer this on our itinerary?
  7. Thank you, Keith, for your prompt reply! We have booked a "guarantee balcony stateroom", so who knows what we'll end up with, but I was just curios about the deck 10 staterooms. Really appreciate all of your contributions to the Crystal boards- it's been incredibly helpful as a first time Crystal cruiser. We're so excited about our first sailing on Serenity this summer!! Please keep the photos of the ship (particularly the updated areas) coming!
  8. Are the standard staterooms on Deck 10 finished in the upgraded "penthouse" motifs with new bathrooms etc.? Thanks!
