Crystal Esprit, the new ship that will launch the Crystal Yacht Cruises brand, will spend its spring, summer and fall 2016 season cruising the Adriatic Coast. The 2016 season will follow Crystal Esprit's maiden voyage through the Seychelles.
From May through October 2016, the ship will offer more than 30 itineraries, many calling on destinations that are only accessible by smaller vessels. Some of the Mediterranean locales the ship will visit include:
Piran, Slovenia – Set at the very tip of the Slovenian peninsula, this port enjoys an historic Old Town, as well as opportunities for natural adventures and dining at top seafood restaurants.
Kotor, Montenegro – Set at the base of a dramatically sloped mountain, Kotor is said to be a good fit for history buffs and travelers with a taste for striking architecture and rich cuisine. Surrounding the town is the spectacular Kotor Fjord.
Limassol, Cyprus – Another good fit for travelers looking for historic architecture - Byzantine castles, Venetian walls and conflicting Greek and Turkish influences -- plus hiking, scuba diving and a menu of foods that reflect the many cultural influences on the island.
Kas, Turkey – Divers will find exotic sea life and centuries-old shipwrecks to explore. The town also has ancient walls, theaters and rock tombs that help tell its history.
Onboard, the all-suite Crystal Esprit will offer a two-passenger submarine, two 10-passenger zodiacs for special excursions and a 12-passenger Wider 32-foot super yacht tender for special boating adventures, as well as water skis, wake boards, kayaks, jet skis, fishing, and snorkel equipment.
All-inclusive cruise fares for Crystal Esprit's Mediterranean/Adriatic Coast voyages start at $3,920 when booked by October 30.
