Off the Beaten Track: Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises

Posted October 11th, 2017

When you set sail aboard a Crystal Yacht cruise ship, you’ll be on your way to incredible destinations unreachable by larger cruise ships, and will find yourself revelling in the unique, intimate elegance that only a smaller-sized cruise liner can offer.

On a Crystal Yacht cruise, you’ll see some of the world’s most beautiful, lesser-known destinations in comfort, luxury, and away from the crowds. 

The Ships

Crystal Esprit – Lauded as the world’s most luxurious boutique hotel on water, the Crystal Esprit carries its mere 62 guests (and 91 crew members) to the secluded shores of exclusive yacht marinas, hidden coves and islands, affording guests unforgettable adventures unlike those of a larger cruise liner.

Travellers can choose to indulge in either a spacious Yacht Suite or an Owner’s Suite aboard the Crystal Esprit, and enjoy all-inclusive drinks and dining, a personal butler service, complimentary shore excursions and much more.

Crystal Endeavour – The Crystal Endeavour is set to debut in August of 2018 as the world’s largest ‘megayacht’, measuring 183m long with 25,000 gross tonnage. Its 200 guests (served by an equal 200 crew members) will enjoy global expeditions in Arctic, Antarctic and tropical conditions. The vessel will even include two helicopters for air adventures and two seven-person submarines!

Crystal Yacht Voyages

West Indies Chic – Explore the West Indies and British Virgin Islands aboard the Crystal Esprit, complete with privileged access to Sir Richard Branson’s exotic, private Moskito Island, and a catamaran sail along St Barts Pointe du Colombier. Visit the crystalline waters of iconic destinations Marigot Bay, Scrub Island, and Gorda Sound.

Expect both relaxation and thrilling adventure, exceptional cuisine, spa, kayak and snorkelling outings, as well as jet skiing and more.

West Indies Chic cruises vary from six to 11 days in duration. 

Adriatic & Greek Isles – Those seeking to explore the shores of the Adriatic, Aegean and Mediterranean seas will delight in these itineraries aboard the Crystal Esprit, calling in to ports at Dubrovnik, Venice, Athens, Barcelona, Malaga and Nice, plus several unique ports in between. Visit Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, Italy’s picturesque Capri and Lipari Islands, Greece’s Cyclades, and much more.

Adriatic & Greek Isles cruises are seven days in duration.
