|Crystal Serenity has beautiful and comfortable veranda furnishings|
making your in-suite breakfast even more enjoyable
My first truly critical impression: You would never know the actual age of the Crystal Serenity, as the ship is immaculately maintained, though its interior style is more akin to the finer old school New York hotels and its exterior that of the grand Palm Beach hotel al fresco areas. What made this more remarkable to me was the fact that I rarely saw staff cleaning, polishing or vacuuming in public areas during the day or evenings. Crystal must make a serious effort to perform these tasks when guests are asleep.

was available to guests.
Crystal Cruises reserves this for its crew, but they say the almost never use it.
(Maybe I'm being a bit selfish!)

two golf driving cages and two ping pong tables.
|Funchal, Madeira, Portugal|
|A Hazy View of the harbor in Funchal, Maderia, Portugal|
|Ancient wicker toboggans waiting to slide you down |
the steep roads of Funchal!
|One of the benefits of cruising in November is that there|
were almost no lines, so the toboggoneers were waiting for us
rather than us waiting for them.
|Not all Madeira wine is heated and shaken; a process that assists|
in preserving this usually not so delicious fortified wine
|This is the Good Stuff|
|And this is the Really Good Stuff!|
|Trust me: Order the Black Cod with Miso!|
|Crystal Serenity's Penthouse affords you the ability to|
dine on Nobu in your suite!
