Cruise Director, Gary Hunter - Crystal Serenity - Crystal Cruises: Gary has had a long career as a cruise director, and the experience has paid off. In 2015 we had the opportunity to sail with Gary for the second time on Crystal Serenity. We named him BEST Cruise Director in 2013, and feel as though he still retains that title in 2015. Gary's puppet show is one of the best shows we have ever attended on any cruise! Read our review.
