Crystal has lost its brilliance, at least for the time being?

Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Penthouse with Verandah

My 2nd time on Crystal, and the first since the new owners Genting took control, I did not check reviews beforehand and am not looking at any now, I just feel compelled to share my thoughts on how things have changed subtly in some areas, and obviously in others.

My aha moment for writing this came when I overheard a conversation about Genting always wanting to be the Number One cruise line in the world (having previously owned NCL) and rather than keep working it, “they bought their way to supremacy”

Today is the last day of this trip a sea day and a gentle cruise to Miami.
