Never a dull moment aboard Crystal Esprit

Can you really experience luxury on a ship with thousands of other people? Crystal Cruises didn’t think so, thus Crystal Esprit came to be. With space for just 62 passengers in 31 magnificent staterooms, Crystal Esprit offers one of the most intimate luxury cruising experience you’ll find. For a smaller ship, she offers big amenities like butler service for every suite, a spectacular Owner’s Suite, fabulous outdoor lounge areas including a pool, a gym and a spa with a sauna. The water toys are a great feature, too, including jet skis and a two-person submarine which gets you closer to marine life than ever before.

What draws people to Crystal Esprit is its ability to cruise remote destinations and areas where large ships very simply cannot fit. Far from the sights and sounds of rambunctious civilization, guests find a serenity among the tiny islands of the Seychelles and other exotic locales like the Persian Gulf, the West Indies and the British Virgin Islands.
