As I write this news, I am sitting at The Bistro on Crystal Symphony in Istanbul, waiting to set sail on my first Crystal experience. It’s damn near impossible to hold back my excitement, as I’ve dreamt of sailing on Crystal for so long. Hopefully, my social posts will influence you in a similar fashion. Make sure you’re following me on Instagram.

If river cruising is more your speed, but luxury is still a necessity, might I suggest you check out Riverside Luxury Cruises? I recently featured Riverside Ravel suites after experiencing a journey with them in the South of France.

Happy Cruising!
