Pompousness is something that you see on all ships -0 but the worst I ever experienced was on Crystal.
We were on the last leg of the world cruise - in fact the world cruise had started in Los Angeles, but thgis was a transcanal back to Miami s the Floridians could "get home."
We had one guy who had been onboard for months traveling alone. I just happened to land at his table which was mastly staff people strangely enough - lecturers, etc.
He actually said to us "I travel on Crystal because it is the only place where I can consort with people with my taste" meaning tuxes and other hoity toity pretentiousness.
