Like any yacht worth its sea salt, Crystal Esprit doesn’t let just anyone on board. In fact, just 62 privileged individuals will be lucky enough to experience the ultra-luxury vessel at any one time. Here’s how we would spend our day if we were fortunate enough to join them…
» 7:00am – Wake up in our luxurious Yacht Suite and look through the day’s activities on the in-suite Digital Directory.
» 7:30am – We decide to join the complimentary Pilates class, which is held on deck by the pool.
» 8:00am – Time for a quick shower, making the most of the complimentary ETRO luxury bath products, and then it’s time for breakfast. We decide to dine al-fresco in The Patio Cafe, with gorgeous views of Praslin, where we are docked for the day.
» 8:30am – We have booked onto the complimentary ‘Le Ravin de Fond Ferdinand Hike’ excursion today, so meet our fellow hikers in reception, before being whisked away to the beautiful Anse Marie Louise beach. From here we set off on a three-hour hike through Praslin’s first Coco de Mer reserve.
» 12:30pm – We’re back in time for lunch, so we head to The Grill on Sunset Deck for a delicious freshly made wrap.
» 2:00pm – We’re heading to the Marina this afternoon to take a kayak out for a short trip. We have packed our waterproof camera, hoping to see some dolphins or sea turtles along the way!
» 3:30pm – Time to relax! We check in at the spa for a soothing massage.
» 6:00pm – Feeling pampered and already dressed for dinner, we join the ‘Destinations In-Depth’ lecture, which takes place in the Crystal Cove and is hosted by the on board Activities Director.
» 6:30pm – We join our fellow guests in the Sunset Bar for pre-dinner cocktails and have a chat about what everyone has been up to today.
» 7:30pm – We’re dining in The Yacht Club tonight, where we tuck into Carpaccio of Beef, Avocado Cream Soup, Fresh Lobster and a Citrus Lemon Mouse, all washed down with a glass of Pouilly-Fuisse from today’s wine selection.
» 9:30pm – A ‘Movie under the Stars’ is our choice of entertainment for this evening and we take a seat in front of the screen that has been set up on deck by the Sunset Bar.
» 11:30pm – After a quick check of tomorrow’s port information on the in-suite iPad, it’s lights out and time for a great night’s sleep dreaming of all the things we can do tomorrow…
