Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does Crystal provide shuttle services or transportation while in port?

    Crystal Cruises is pleased to provide complimentary shuttle service in ports of call where the town or city center is beyond a reasonable walking distance from the ship’s pier. Complimentary shuttle service is provided at the sole discretion of Crystal Cruises and is not guaranteed in any port. The shuttle schedule is announced in the onboard daily newsletter Reflections. Please note: Crystal Cruises is unable to provide shuttle schedules prior to the start of a cruise. Schedules and the operations of shuttles are sometimes dictated by local authorities, traffic or security measures, which may create delays and, in some cases, prohibit shuttle service from operating inside the port area.

  • Is there a maximum of activities, services or excursions that I can pre-reserve?

    No. However, while there are no restrictions as to the number of spa and salon appointments, Crystal Adventures shore excursions, or Creative Learning Institute class requests you may reserve, appointments are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Dining reservations in specialty restaurants Prego and Silk Road are limited to one per restaurant per voyage (a total of two per voyage). However, additional requests for specialty restaurant reservations may be made on board with the maître’d.

  • What time is embarkation on Crystal voyages?

    At most embarkation ports, ships are usually available for guests boarding after 12 p.m. (noon, dependent on ship’s clearance by local port authority). Suites are available for guest occupancy after 3 p.m. typically. Exact embarkation and sailing times are specified by itinerary. On embarkation day, you must be on the ship at least 2 hours prior to scheduled sailing. If ship is scheduled to remain in port overnight or has a scheduled departure time after 9 p.m., please plan to be at the pier no later than 7 p.m. for security clearance and check-in.

  • What are single room supplements?

    Depending on sailing and category booked, Solo Fares range from 130% to 200% of the applicable per person, double occupancy fare. Solo Traveler Fares (Single Supplements) are calculated before additional promotional savings, are capacity-controlled, subject to change, and/or may be withdrawn at any time. Please contact CruiseInsider for the most up-to-date Solo Traveler Fares from Crystal.

  • What is the dining experience onboard Crystal ships?

    The Crystal River culinary experience celebrates dining with a savory combination of cuisine and conversation that together foster a memorable journey. Unique, expert, lavish culinary presentations of Michelin star-level cuisine will be enjoyed in an elegant dining room and several more intimate dining areas.

    • A la carte, buffet and early risers breakfast offerings
    • Multiple dining venues
    • Open seating dining
    • Casual elegant dress code

  • Are there elevators onboard?

    Crystal Ocean

    Yes, all ships have elevators to access all decks.

    Crystal Yachts

    The staterooms and public spaces onboard do not have any elevators and there is no elevator access to board the yachts as they were originally constructed. As a result, the Crystal Yachts may not be suitable for people relying solely on wheelchairs for transportation.

    Crystal River

    The suites and public spaces onboard the river ships have elevator access to all main guest decks with the exception of the Sun Deck, which may only be reached via stairs. However, there is no elevator access to board the river boats. As a result, Crystal River voyages may not be suitable for people relying solely on wheelchairs for transportation.

  • What are the dining options on Crystal ships?

    On Crystal's ocean ships, guests get the ultimate choice in luxury dining called Perfect Choice Dining, with three extraordinary ways to enjoy fine dining in The Crystal Dining Room:

    1. Classic Main seating – previously available
    2. Classic Late seating – previously available
    3. Dining by Reservation

    With Dining by Reservation, guests can now reserve a table in the Crystal Dining Room at a different (or same) time for each night of their cruise, if they wish. Guests simply make their reservations just as they would in the specialty restaurants Prego and Silk Road.
