To start planning your vacation to Crystal Esprit Seychelles
Completely refurbished in late 2015, Crystal Esprit offers the pinnacle of high-end cruising in some of the world's most exclusive waters, wintering in the Seychelles, and spending the summer months in the Adriatic Sea.
Sleek, shallow drafted, and with a length more akin to a private luxury motor yacht than a traditional cruise ship, Crystal Esprit's size allows it to access areas that other vessels cannot reach. This gives you the chance to visit some of the most secluded coves, pristine beaches and amazing anchorages in the world, all while basking in the warm and attentive service provided on board by the officers and crew.
Embarking from Mahé, you will quickly leave the port of Victoria behind while you settle into one of just 31 cabins. Dining options are delicious and varied, with lunch being taken either at the grill or the patio cafe, and dinner at the fine-dining yacht club restaurant, all overseen by executive Chef Adam Jenkins and included throughout.
Each sunrise on board Crystal Esprit will see you awaken to a fresh paradise, and impossibly beautiful islands such as Curieuse, Félicité, or La Digue. The beauty of this tour of the Seychelles is that you have the opportunity to really engage with each individual stop - be that by scuba diving straight off the yacht into vibrant marine life amid beautifully clear waters, taking a guided hike into the hills, partaking in the array of water sports provided by the crew, or simply taking the time to breathe in the magic of the island you're visiting by exploring by yourself. For foodies there's even the chance to learn about the local dishes and how to prepare them.
With such a rich program of activities on offer each day, you'll want to make sure that your accommodation is as comfortable as possible - with this in mind, the newly refurbished interiors reflect a modern design hotel rather than a yacht cabin. Everything has been thought of, with WiFi available throughout the yacht, and a full butler service, ensuring you will want for nothing during your time aboard the magnificent Crystal Esprit.
There are 30 yacht suites on Crystal Esprit, all ranging from 20-26 sqm, and all appointed to a high standard, with en-suite facilities, WiFi, bar, Nespresso machines and room service. The Owner's Suite is also available with the above facilities but offering increased space at 45 sqm.
Children are welcome on board, however there are no specific child care facilities aboard Crystal Esprit.
There is a wide variety of restaurant options on board Crystal Esprit, from casual lunch spots to fine dining. The Yacht Club serves classic dishes using the freshest of ingredients, alongside creative tasting menus. The Terrace and Patio Cafe aims to create delicious small plates based on local delicacies, while The Grill offers tapas-style locally-inspired dishes, alongside casual burgers and wraps. Finally, The Pantry is a 24-hour wine bar and bistro, ideal for a light bite or a drink to relax at the end of the day.
Crystal Esprit offers a huge range of activities, including local guided hikes on the islands, scuba diving, trips in the yacht's own submersible, a choice of water sports, and plenty of dry land wellness activities such as yoga and Pilates.
All cabins benefit from a 24 hour butler service, accessible either by phone or the in-cabin iPad.
