One of the most phenomenal cruise experiences I have ever had was a Hawaii cruise aboard the Crystal Harmony. I am saddened to see this elegant vessel leave the fleet (she will be joining Crystal's Japanese parent company in November). I received this press release which I thought might be of interest to any other Crystal lovers out there:

Crystal Harmony Godmother Mary Tyler Moore to Sail During Ship's Final

Among those paying tribute to Crystal Harmony during her final season
this fall will be the luxury ship's Godmother, seven-time Emmy
Award-winner Mary Tyler Moore. The star of television, stage and film
will join the award-winning ship on October 22 for a ten-day Mexican
Riviera cruise, one of Crystal Harmony's last voyages as part of the
Crystal Cruises fleet.

Mary Tyler Moore is one of a distinguished group of legendary women
who hold the honor of Godmother of a Crystal Cruises ship. Ms. Moore
christened Crystal Harmony in 1990; Angela Lansbury launched Crystal
Symphony in 1995 and Dame Julie Andrews became Godmother of Crystal
Serenity in 2003.

Like Ms. Lansbury and Ms. Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore holds a special
place in people's hearts as a symbol of female independence and
strength, both in her work and personal life. On board, Ms. Moore will
participate in a question and answer session whereby she will share
meaningful moments from her illustrious career and her extensive
charity work. In addition to memorable television roles on "The Dick
Van Dyke Show" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," as well as other
television and film roles, Ms. Moore earned an Academy Award
nomination for her performance in the celebrated film "Ordinary
People" and was honored with a Tony Award for her portrayal of a
quadriplegic in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?"

In November 2005, Crystal Harmony will leave the Crystal Cruises fleet
and will be transferred to Crystal's parent company's Japanese cruise
division. From September through October, the 940-guest, 50,000-ton
Crystal Harmony will spend her final season sailing on seven-day and
ten-day Mexican Riviera itineraries round-trip from Los Angeles. The
ten-day October 22 cruise features calls in San Diego, Cabo San Lucas,
Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo.

Crystal Cruises' President Gregg Michel, who was at the 1990
christening said, "Mary Tyler Moore launched Crystal Harmony with an
elegance and warmth that to this day are hallmarks of our ship's
luxury experience. We are honored that she is coming back to cruise
aboard Crystal Harmony during her farewell season. As a tremendously
accomplished actress, Ms. Moore should be very proud of the critical
acclaim and guest satisfaction 'her ship' has enjoyed for so many

Crystal Cruises has consistently earned the travel industry's most
distinguished hospitality awards and guidebook ratings. Most recently,
the line was voted the "World's Best Large-Ship Line" by the readers
of "Travel + Leisure" magazine for the tenth consecutive year, the
only cruise line to have won the coveted award every year since the
surveys' inception.
