To start planning your vacation to Crystal Esprit Adriatic


With a shallow draft and sleek design, Crystal Esprit is able to access areas that other vessels cannot typically reach. This gives guests the opportunity to visit the smaller islands and hidden coves that larger cruise ships overlook, while luxuriating in the six-star luxury provided by the expert crew.

Newly renovated and boasting a stylish, modern design throughout, Crystal Esprit provides guests with a luxury yachting experience rather than that of a typical cruise ship. The 30 well-appointed yacht suites are contemporary and comfortable, while the single Owner’s Suite offers complete privacy and exclusivity with its separate living and dining area. Every need has been anticipated on board, with WiFi available throughout the yacht and a full butler service, ensuring guests will want for nothing whilst aboard the magnificent Crystal Esprit. There are multiple restaurant options on Crystal Esprit, with award-winning chefs providing a variety of cuisines, as well as a mixture of casual and fine dining, which is included throughout.

Departing from glamorous Venice, guests will quickly feel at home on board Crystal Esprit, and will awaken the next day to the welcoming shores of the Dalmatian coast. Rocky coves and crystal clear waters are just waiting to be explored, while the towns and cities are packed with an enticing combination of history, architecture and culture. Weaving between the spectacular coastline and the picturesque islands, each of Crystal Esprit’s ports of call holds a new surprise, from the medieval streets of Šibenik to the Venetian influences found in Hvar’s architecture.

At each stop a wide array of excursions is provided, giving every guest the chance to explore and connect with each destination. Visit the breath-taking waterfalls of Krka National Park, enjoy a horseback ride through the countryside, or even zip line over a dramatic gorge – there really is something for everyone. Of course independent exploration is also encouraged, allowing guests the opportunity to wander at their own pace, taking the time to engage with each individual stopping point.


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 has a wide variety of activities on offer, both on land and on sea. Take an island scooter tour, learn about the history of Croatia or sample the local wines with a tasting session. Explore hidden coves by boat, or discover the underwater world with a diving excursion.


All cabins benefit from a 24 hour butler service, accessible either by phone or the in-cabin iPad.
