Crystal Esprit’s 2023 deployment comprises:

seven Holy Land and Middle East sailings;
and five Mediterranean sailings through Italy and France.
Nearly all are six, seven or eight nights in length, with select Holy Land and Holiday sailings of 11 and 12 nights.
“The wow factor of Crystal Esprit is found in the intimate, luxurious atmosphere of the yacht, which is perfectly suited for navigating the hidden harbours of destinations not accessible by larger vessels, as well as coveted ports of profound glamour and historical significance,” said Mark Spillane, director of sales and marketing for Crystal Yacht Cruises.
“We’ve designed the 2023 and early 2024 itineraries to complement this boutique, private yacht experience by allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the culture of the destinations and feel personally connected both on board and ashore.”
