ESPRIT Infos

Crystal Cruises®: Crystal Esprit™

The Crystal Esprit offers an intimate and elegant enclave while welcoming just 62 sophisticated travelers in all-suite, butler-serviced accommodations. The yacht’s unique size brings guests to the very doorstep of some of the world’s most exclusive shores, allowing for incomparable personalized experiences.

Gorgeous interiors and inviting social spaces are designed to Crystal’s All Exclusive standards of service, space, quality and choices. And while the ambience on board is characterized by Crystal’s unique understanding of luxury, the ultimate indulgence lies in the yacht’s relaxed, unregimented pace. 

The Crystal® Yachting Lifestyle celebrates dining with a savory combination of cuisine and conversation that together foster unique experiences in a relaxed environment of engaging camaraderie. Lavish culinary presentations of Michelin Star level will be enjoyed in an elegant dining room or one of two carefree al fresco cafés. Bars and Lounges will be welcoming, convivial spaces of elegant comfort, from the al fresco Sunset Bar with its aft location on the ship’s top deck and The Cove, the yacht’s premier gathering place to enjoy a drink and share stories of the day.

SHIPBOARD POLICIES

  • Internet Access

– Crystal Cruises is pleased to provide both complimentary Wi-Fi service and satellite Internet access for all guests. All onboard Internet traffic uses satellite communication, and therefore is much slower than land-based high speed Internet service providers.

All guests are given complimentary unlimited Internet/Wi-Fi service for the duration of the cruise.

Guests can use their personal laptops aboard by connecting to the Wi-Fi service. Please note: It is not possible to connect a laptop to the shipboard phone system or directly to any number ashore. Services such as Skype, iChat, FaceTime, or similar, are not available onboard.

Crystal Cruises supports the use of iPads/tablets onboard. Please update your device with the latest software prior to embarkation to ensure that it can be used aboard the vessel.

  • Smoking Policy

– Smoking is not permitted in staterooms or any indoor public areas. There is a small area on deck that is designated for guests who wish to smoke.

  • Special Dietary Needs – Advance Notice Required

– Special dietary requests must be sent in writing to Crystal Cruises’ Onboard Guest Services Department by fax at (310)785-3975, or via email to onboardgstsvcs@crystalcruises.com, prior to departure.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs

– Unfortunately, the shallow draft and yacht-like size of the Crystal Esprit – which permit her to access places not possible with a larger ship – do not allow for an elevator. For this reason, passengers requiring the use of wheelchairs will not find the yacht suitable for their travel. Guests should be ambulatory to take full advantage of the array of activities and equipment that Crystal Esprit offers.

For guests with specific medical needs such as oxygen or dialysis, please contact Onboard Guest Services, prior to departure, for the necessary procedures. Onboard Guest Services Department can be reached via fax at (310)785-3975, or via email to onboardgstsvcs@crystalcruises.com
