Sail in style through the Seychelles aboard Crystal Cruises’ newest – and smallest – addition, Crystal Esprit…
Better described as a private yacht rather than a cruise ship, Crystal Esprit carries only 62 passengers per voyage, who are meticulously cared for by a team of 91 crew. The hallmarks of the Crystal Cruises brand – service, space, quality and choice – shine throughout, but it’s the vessel’s small size which is the main advantage, taking passengers to destinations often untouched.
From January to March 2020, Crystal Esprit returns to the isles of the spectacular Seychelles. Travelling on a round-trip from Mahé, spend seven nights exploring the sugar-white beaches, emerald mountains and crystalline waters of the archipelago in the utmost luxury.
Suites and Social Spaces
The small and intimate all-suite luxury yacht indulges travellers with plush king-size beds and opulent bathrooms with glass-enclosed showers, along with a dedicated butler who are happy to assist with everything from packing and unpacking, to organising excursions and experiences. Take daily life at your own pace as you recline in one of the elegant lounges, or bask in the unrivalled Indian Ocean weather on a Balinese bed on the sun deck.
With cuisine at Michelin-level, there is no sacrifice when it comes to dining on board. British-born Executive Chef Adam Jenkins serves only the finest dishes in the sublime Yacht Club Restaurant, while the yacht’s sommelier is always on-hand with recommended complimentary wines to pair with your chosen meal. The Patio Café and Terrace offers a relaxed indoor/outdoor space serving small plates and gourmet charcuterie, while the Grill – a Crystal classic – serves a casual menu often inspired by the yacht’s current destination.
Activities and Excursions
With a luxuriously leisurely atmosphere across the ship, you can do as much or as little as like. From photography and guest lectures, to yoga and meditation, you can indulge your passions or simply relax. Of course, there is also the state-of-the-art water toys that are, unsurprisingly, highly popular! From the ship’s marina platform, you can relish jet-skiing, snorkelling and paddle-boarding, or take an underwater tour in the ship’s exclusive two-person, deep-sea submersible, operated by a certified pilot.
