Two years ago, my wife could not join me on a speaking assignment on the #1 rated line – Crystal Cruises. Very nice ships. Only 900+ passengers. It was kinda lonely, but I really don’t mind sailing alone. I get the whole room to myself – huge closet space and I can sleep until I wake up.
There are always plenty of nice folks on board to chat with. The ship had decorations and even a big tree in the main area. The dining room featured the traditional turkey and all the fixings. People really dressed up for the day. Men had tuxedos and women were all decked out. Christmas music filled the hallways and common areas. They really didn’t let you get homesick.
Crystal does allow children, but they are generally kept under control by their parents. The line is not cheap, and former CEO’s, company presidents, celebrities and sports figures often sail with them. If interested, you can go to their website and check out their fares. This is truly a special line. Most are repeat passengers. The ship goes to different ports to keep the regulars coming back.
It was really special to be onboard at Christmas. I’d do it again – with my wife.
MSC Cruises is bringing a ship to Australia for the first time in its history.

MSC will entertain local travel agents who will be given tours of the Orchestra. “I am thrilled to be bringing MSC Orchestra to Australian waters,” managing director Lynne Clarke said. “I will be equally excited for our loyal passengers to have the chance to see the cruise ship in their home waters.”
