  • Internet Access - Crystal Cruises is pleased to provide both complimentary Wi-Fi service and satellite Internet access for all guests. All onboard Internet traffic uses satellite communication, and therefore is much slower than land-based high speed Internet service providers.

    All guests are given complimentary unlimited Internet/Wi-Fi service for the duration of the cruise.

    Guests can use their personal laptops aboard by connecting to the Wi-Fi service. Please note: It is not possible to connect a laptop to the shipboard phone system or directly to any number ashore. Services such as Skype, iChat, FaceTime, or similar, are not available onboard.

    Crystal Cruises supports the use of iPads/tablets onboard. Please update your device with the latest software prior to embarkation to ensure that it can be used aboard the vessel.

  • Smoking Policy - Smoking is not permitted in staterooms or any indoor public areas. There is a small area on deck that is designated for guests who wish to smoke.
  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required - Special dietary requests must be sent in writing to Crystal Cruises' Onboard Guest Services Department by fax at (310)785-3975, or via email to onboardgstsvcs@crystalcruises.com, prior to departure.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs - Unfortunately, the shallow draft and yacht-like size of the Crystal Esprit ? which permit her to access places not possible with a larger ship ? do not allow for an elevator. For this reason, passengers requiring the use of wheelchairs will not find the yacht suitable for their travel. Guests should be ambulatory to take full advantage of the array of activities and equipment that Crystal Esprit offers.

    For guests with specific medical needs such as oxygen or dialysis, please contact Onboard Guest Services, prior to departure, for the necessary procedures. Onboard Guest Services Department can be reached via fax at (310)785-3975, or via email to onboardgstsvcs@crystalcruises.com

Esprit is fantastic

| Dalmatian coast Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Venice Italy
Fantastic ship, great crew, great service, wonderful food. The staff and crew will move heaven and earth to try and accommodate your requests.

Great Ship/Trip

| Caribbean
We were blown away by this ship. It really felt like we had our own yacht. Plenty of space so we were able to have our own area every day/night and be really comfortable. The service was fantastic and the experience overall was great. We will definitely repeat if the ship comes close to the US again. Our only complaint is that we were never allowed to swim, kayak or paddle board off the boat. They only permitted jet skiing one day the entire trip so on 7 day Caribbean cruise could only do 1 thing in the water off the boat. We were looking forward to that part and definitely felt disappointed. The activities off the ship were fine.

British Virgin Islands

| British Virgin Islands
A wonderful trip with a good combination of beaches, swimming and snorkeling as well as interesting shore excursions. The highlight of the trip was the swimming, snorkeling and barbeque lunch on a beautiful beach on Richard Branson's private island.

Crystal Esprit

| Croatia
Croatia was beautiful. Everyday we went to another city. The ship and the staff couldn't have been better. The food was the best. It was a little harder at times to be on such a small ship. Other than dinner there wasn't a lot to do. We did meet nice people and made new friends. I think I prefer a larger ship where there is more happening. But it was a lovely experience overall.

Cruising the Adriatic

| Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia and Venice
This is a great experience. The crew is so thoughtful, helpful and pleasant to be around. Cabin was large and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable! For the most part, the guides on the shore excursions were very good. We would definitely consider another cruise.
