MIAMI, June 20, 2018 – Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises has unveiled the complete guide to its yachting itineraries. The Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises’ 2018/2019 Atlas features the comprehensive collection of voyages aboard the award-winning Crystal Esprit, showcasing the yacht’s 18 distinctive voyages through the Adriatic, West Indies, the Arabian Peninsula and Holy Land. In addition to itineraries focusing on adventurous experiences and captivating sites to explore, the Atlas highlights the most enticing facets of Crystal Esprit’s onboard experience. The all-suite, all-butler-serviced yacht, which accommodates just 62 guests, epitomizes a boutique yachting lifestyle with visits to famed and secluded locales, replete with Crystal’s signature spacious design, Michelin-inspired cuisine, and personalized attention to detail.
“This is the ultimate planning reference for those looking to experience the Crystal Yachting Lifestyle with the luxurious touches that only Crystal can offer,” says Mark Spillane, Manager of Sales and Marketing, Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises. “Beyond the glamour and intrigue of the world’s yachting playgrounds, the comprehensive scope of the Crystal Yacht Experience is displayed with stunning imagery that will draw travelers into their next adventures.”
The Atlas details the remainder of 2018’s itineraries, including seven-day “Yachting Harbors of Croatia” and “Dreaming of Dalmatia” sailings, which offer intensive exploration of Croatian ports along the northeast Adriatic coastline, as well as Slovenia, Montenegro and Italy. As the journeys do not repeat ports, travelers can easily combine itineraries for extended vacations. Additionally, seven-day “West Indies Yachting Explorer” and “British Virgin Islands Yachting Escape” itineraries, sail round-trip from Saint Martin and call in the pristine waters of coveted island locales like St. Barts, Anguilla, Saba, and Richard Branson’s Moskito Island.
For 2019, Crystal Esprit’s European offerings include a diverse roster of voyages that focus heavily in individual regions, including comprehensive exploration of Spain, with overnights in Valencia and Barcelona; the Côte d’Azur with VIP access to the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix; French and Italian seaside gems with overnights in Nice, France and Livorno, Italy, allowing for ventures into nearby Florence and Tuscany; and concentrated voyages throughout the Cyclades and Greek Isles.
Also new for 2019 will be the yacht’s “Arabian Nights Collection,” which features seven- to 11-day voyages to the Holy Land and Egypt, Oman, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, as well as the Greek Isles and Cyprus, and a special New Year’s Eve holiday sailing round-trip from Dubai.
In addition to the vast destination resources, the Atlas includes details of what guests can expect on board during their journeys. Crystal Esprit also features an exclusively outfitted private marina at the back of the ship, with an array of water toys for use in select ports of call.
The Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises 2018/2019 Atlas also features a glimpse of what’s to come for the brand, as Crystal Endeavor, the most spacious luxury expedition yacht in the world is set to launch in 2020. The brochure can be downloaded at crystalcruises.com, and Crystal Esprit itineraries are now available for booking.
