Review of Crystal Symphony deck 5 (Crystal-Cabins-Lobby-Hospital)
Infirmary/Medical Center is the ship’s hospital operated by resident doctors / physicians and nurses on 24-hour call duty. The infirmary is open between 8 am – 8 pm (doctor hours are 8-11 am and 3-6 pm). Treatments at the ship hospital are equivalent to a private doctor’s visit. All treatments, tests and medications are at extra charge. The only exception is Bonine (seasickness medication) also available for free at the ship’s Reception (24 hours). General health insurance policies do not apply, so buying cruise health insurance is recommended.
“Crystal Plaza” is the Guest Services desks area. It has the ship’s Reception, Front Desk, Concierge Desk and Shore Excursions Desk (booking, information)
“Crystal Cove” is a 66-seats piano bar (portside), contemporary furnished, with live piano and string quartet performances in the evening, specialty cocktails and connoisseur menu (a la carte charge).
