I thought you might like to see the latest PR activity regarding Crystal’s Luxury yacht Esprit, whilst our River Yachts seems to be stealing the show at the moment, bookings for Esprit are still going great guns too. We are working with several Tour Operators to put some great packages together for the Seychelles and Dubai, and the Adriatic is proving to be very popular with UK guests.
Here is a sneaky picture from Edie – the new submersible being launched! Ready for her Maiden Voyage next week!
PLUS the PR below….we have brochures available but only via our office do let me know if you would like copies ready for the New Year!
CRYSTAL ESPRIT’S COLLECTION OF WATER TOYS MEANS ‘CRYSTAL ADVENTURES’ NO LONGER REFER TO JUST SHORE EXCURSIONS
When Crystal’s ultra-luxury yacht, Crystal Esprit, embarks on her maiden voyage next week, guests will be ushered into the new era of Crystal Cruises: one of new destinations and new ways to get there, one that caters to those passionately curious about the world and actively seeking adventure. While the yacht will sail to destinations throughout the Seychelles, Cosmopolitan Emirates and Mediterranean that are known for their outdoor opportunities and appeal to explorers of all persuasions, the vessel itself is outfitted for adventure, so luxury travellers need not limit themselves to what’s available shore-side.
Whether guests are seeking underwater adventures, high-speed adrenaline-inducing experiences or physically challenging and athletic pursuits, they need look no further than Crystal Esprit’s retractable marina. Tucked sleekly inside this extravagant yacht is an arsenal of water toys, beckoning Crystal guests – discerning travellers who seek unexpected, uncommon and truly memorable experiences – to come and play.
Water skis, a wakeboard, two types of ocean kayaks (do you fancy a tandem paddle or some solitude?), Skidoo jet skis, two 10-person zodiacs, contained in-ocean pool…plus, fishing and snorkel equipment at the ready – all for complimentary use on a first come, first served basis. For those ready to dive deeper, literally, a C Explorer U Boat Submarine will be available for subaquatic quests. Offering approximately 30-minute expeditions for $599 per person, the sub seats two guests and the vessel’s operator, creating an especially exclusive atmosphere. Additionally, a 12-passenger Wider 32-foot super yacht tender will take guests on special boating adventures.
Of course, Crystal Esprit will also offer a selection of Crystal Adventures ashore that highlight the natural wonders and opportunities for intrepid travellers in each destination. Zip lining in the Seychelles, culinary tours throughout Greece and acrobatic flights aboard a stunt plane in Croatia are all on the menu. Additionally, the yacht will offer bicycles for guests’ use if they choose to explore independently ashore. With the launch of its first new vessel in 12 years – the first of several new experiences planned over the next three years – Crystal has made every effort to ensure that possibilities and choices are all but endless.
For the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line – a company lauded for over two decades for its superior standard of excellence and sophistication – it’s clear that luxury extends beyond the six-star cuisine, all-penthouse accommodations, plush amenities and wishes granted at every turn. Luxury reaches as far as the imaginations of travellers who seek it, and for some, the fun begins in the Crystal Esprit marina.
