Life aboard Crystal Esprit
Crystal Esprit joined Crystal Cruises in late 2015 as a luxury explorer vessel. Until April 2019 Crystal Esprit is based at the Caribbean port of St Martin (Philipsburg), and from there she runs a 7-night itinerary that take in five island-ports in the British Virgin Islands and St Barts. With a number of overnight stays guests can dine and explore on shore – and be sure to take gear for swimming. By June 2019 Crystal Esprit is again in the Mediterranean, mostly in the very popular and attractive Adriatic Sea.

Formerly MegaStar Taurus, the ship’s complete makeover reduces cabins from 36 to 31. With a shallow draft, marina, and multiple specialised water craft, guests can expect to moor at ports inaccessible to other vessels and really explore their surrounds; and at the end of the day retire to fine dining and top class hotel amenities. After all, Crystal is the World Number 1 Luxury Line (Berlitz 2018). With only 62 passengers and a crew of 91, the ship offers ‘six-star’ luxury. While it has no balconies, staterooms are all suites furnished exquisitely. All fares are inclusive of tips, premium beverages, and most other expenses.

Accommodation
Thirty-one Yacht Suites (most with 26 sq.m.) each have a large panorama window view of the sea. They feature plush king- or queen-size beds, with tufted leather headboards, made up with the finest linens. Each suite features a spacious, full-height hanging closet and a separate double-hanging closet, both custom-designed with integrated lighting. The bathrooms boast stunning, cutting-edge design, with glass-enclosed rain-shower, striking backlit mirrors over double vanity sinks and natural stone flooring. Built-in shelving allows for plenty of storage throughout the entire suite and bathroom. Twelve suites are interconnecting to allow for six large family or friendship groups. Each suite can take up to three guests.

The Owner's Suite, at a generous 48 sq.m., is twice the size of other suites, providing a lavish environment for relaxing or entertaining fellow world travelers. The separate living area hosts a four-seat dining table, sofa, bar, fridge and satellite TV. The bedroom features a queen-size bed with a custom-built bench for storage at its foot, comfortable couch and expansive ocean views. Appreciate all the convenience of home with high definition television and a bedside iPad to run all lighting, shades and electronics at a single touch. The Owner's Suite bathroom is spa-like, featuring striking backlit mirrors over double vanity sinks and natural stone flooring, plus a stunning egg-shaped Jacuzzi stone tub and separate glass-enclosed rain shower.

Food and Dining
Dining is smart casual in The Yacht Club Restaurant and its outdoor extension the Patio Café restaurants, serve a broad selection of all you could ask for. Dinner is open seating at a single sitting. Michelin-starred cuisine will be based on quality local ingredients of the Seychelles Islands and Mediterranean coast, and feature favourite dishes served on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. On the top deck is The Sunset Bar & Grill, an al fresco area for casual dining and feature seafood, burgers, wraps and tapas. There are no specialty restaurants for this size of vessel. Enjoy pastries, snacks, espresso and wine in the quaint corner bar. Guest Suites also allow guests to dine privately in-suite, and of course there is 24-hour room service.

The Pantry bistro is self-serve 24 hours a day, and a casual spot for coffee and pastries. Other informal eateries are the Terrace and Patio Café overlooking the wake, and on the deck above this is the Sunset Bar and Grill. With only 62 guests, personal service and privacy are assured. Retire to the Cove forward lounge for solitude or conversation with like-minded travellers.

Entertainment
Entertainment on this ‘new’ Crystal vessel is either in-suite with a 42” TV flat screen, or in the Cover lounge with piano, singing and movies. Free Internet is offered for one hour daily, and pay for additional time. There is a splash pool on the sun deck and also a warm whirlpool. With complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, convivial conversation at the end of each day’s water and on-shore activities is assured with your new-found friends.

Much interest and activity will centre around the two-passenger submarine, four 10-passenger Zodiacs, 12-passenger 32-foot super yacht tender, water skis, wake boards, kayaks, jet skis, and fishing, scuba, and snorkel equipment that can be deployed from the rear marina. This is the first explorer ship with a two-person submarine – to view ancient Mediterranean ship wrecks? Corals in the Seychelles? Weddings underwater? The ship has a well-equipped fitness room, though no salon. There are no facilities for youngsters.
