A "Crystal" Memory
Do you have a "perfect" cruise to remember? I do. A few years ago, we were privileged to host a group on a British Isles cruise aboard the Crystal Symphony. The cruise was fabulous. The food and service, as always, superb. The staff by the far the best we have sailed with on the "seven seas"...but what made it a cruise to remember was the Military Tattoo in Edinburgh, Scotland. Picture a Castle on a hill in the middle of Edinburgh. It is night...the stands are filled. The courtyard of the castle has military bands complete with horses and artillery (in some instances) performing from a variety of countries all over the world. The music was superb. The ambience was incredible...and when the fireworks went off above the Castle...it was sheer bliss. Would recommend Crystal any day of the week...but if you get a chance to experience the Military Tattoo, it will be a memory of a lifetime!
