Crystal Yacht Esprit

Crystal Yacht Cruises, the most recent intimate travel experience from the world’s most awarded cruise line, is charting new waters with the maiden voyage of Crystal Esprit this winter.

Sleek and nimble, this yacht-like vessel with luxurious accommodations for only 62 discerning guests, features a shallow draft which allows her access to various ports and coves that remain inaccessible to the large and mid-range cruise ships.

The hallmarks of the Crystal Cruise brand, service – space – quality and choices, will continue to thrive on a yacht that offers the best of all-inclusives. Butlers for every room, 6-star service and food, unique Crystal Adventures designed for a more intimate, exclusive feeling which translates the Best Cruise Experience to the Best Yacht Experience. The overall atmosphere is classic elegance mixed with modern comforts. The unregimented environment which allows you to set your own pace. You can opt to explore on your own, join an active or cultural excursion or simply relax on deck while admiring the view.

The onboard experience features four separate eating options. My favorite is The Pantry – a “go to” self- service bistro and wine bar open 24 hours a day with a fresh supply of specialty coffees, vintage wines, light snacks, freshly baked pastries: the perfect indulgence to satisfy your cravings day or night.

The all-inclusive aspect of the ambiance includes complimentary select fine wines, champagnes and premium spirits. Open bar service throughout the yacht. All gratuities. Bottled water, specialty coffees, soft drinks, fresh juices and 24 hour room service. It doesn’t stop with food and beverage! Onboard lectures, fitness and activity director to keep you on track, specialty activities such as yoga, meditation, photography, etc. All included and available at your convenience.

The Marina & Sports platform is incredible! Four 8 passenger Zodiacs as well as wake boards, water skis, jet skis, snorkel equipment, kayaks are all available to the active guest who wishes to either learn a new skill or maintain a favorite pastime while aboard. Fishing rods and bicycles round out the sports equipment.

The true appeal to this new travel experience are the amazing itineraries which have been developed. Her maiden voyage is December 23rd, 2015 – a 10 day Seychelles sailing with pricing starting at $5940USDpp cruise only. Incredible opportunities to participate in deep-sea fishing off the coast of Desroches, Seychelles for barracuda, wahoo or Bluefin tuna. Or perhaps a one tank scuba dive in St Anne’s waters to experience the world renown underwater rock formations, shipwrecks and fabulous marine life. A once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate New Year’s in Dubai is offered in a 3 day land package! Other itineraries will include the Mediterranean/Adriatic coast lines, Holy Land and Middle East, Persian Gulf as well as the Indian Ocean. Exotic, undiscovered destinations await with the opportunity to do more, see more and all in the benevolent ambiance of cultural immersion and an all-inclusive environment.
