FURTHER INFORMATION ON CRUISE ALTERNATIVES

YACHT CRUISE OPTION

Crystal Yacht Cruises

The Mediterranean, The Adriatic, The Caribbean

The Crystal Esprit introduced an entirely new class of luxury small ship cruising - Sleek and nimble, the yacht-like vessel features a shallow draft that allows it to visit secluded harbors, coves and islands that are simply not accessible to larger cruise ships.   Some distinguishing features of these cruises:

  • Featuring just 31 spacious suites, 62 privileged guests enjoy an almost private yacht experience, with highly personalized service and no crowds or lines.  Exceptional Michelin-star level cuisine with a regional focus.

  • The Esprit’s Destination Leader will help you plan your day on the water or ashore, with a variety of excursions or suggestions for personal discovery.

  • The Crystal Esprit features a variety of watersports equipment that can be used directly from the state of the art marina platform deck aft.  Snorkel or swim in the Mediterranean, the Adriatic or the Caribbean; water ski and jet ski, wakeboard, or paddle a kayak in the early morning quiet.

  • Two complimentary shore excursions.

  • Optional cruise exclusives include a deep-sea submersible for two passengers and a certified pilot, and a Wider 32-foot yacht with tender pilot.

EXPEDITION CRUISE OPTION

Celebrity Xpedition Cruises

Galapagos year-round

Designed not just for travel, but for exploration, the Celebrity Xpedition yacht sails to the Galapogos Islands, one of the world’s last pristine environments – seven days a week, 365 days a year.  Some distinguishing features of these cruises:
