MUFA Day#26: On the Crystal Symphony for Honolulu

The Crystal Symphony is the sitter ship of the Crystal Serenity, both built in Finland and approximately 20 years old.  Everything significant for me on this trip has been like a 20th reunion, like the New York Grill, Tokyo Westin, and, now, this ship.  The maximum customer capacity is 922, although some say there are only a little more 600 currently sailing on this leg.   Others indicated less than 500.  Here, the sun setting next to Tokyo Tower in the background.  Then we departed.

The Symphony was refitted in 2006 in Norfolk, Virginia, went through a third refitting in 2009 in Boston, and completed a two-week extreme makeover in Germany in 2012.

Well, this Crystal cruise is fabulous, for the food is exceptional and all the drinks are free.  Some typical shots of meals, teas, shows, and so on:

Sometimes you dress up:

And sometimes not, here with a Glenfiddich on rocks:

There are, of course dance classes (I've now learned swing and fox trot, with cha-cha tomorrow), movies, golf lessons, computer classes (I'm actually paying $300 just to continue my blog and read my e-mails for a week) and stage shows:
