Luxury American cruise line company, Crystal Cruises, last week announced it would be offering a range of luxury expedition-style getaways, including a 62-passenger luxury yacht, which will be exploring the pristine Indian Ocean surrounding the Seychelles archipelago of 115 islands. The all-suite yacht, which will be christened the Crystal Esprit, will embark on its maiden voyage on December 23, 2015, exploring the Seychelles islands, followed by a post-cruise New Year’s Eve celebration at the Taj Dubai Hotel. Apart from calling at Port Victoria, the main port of call on the main island of Mahe, the seven-day cruise will explore some of the Seychelles’ most beautiful onshore spots, including Sainte Anne Island, La Digue; Praslin, Curieuse Island, Cousin Island; Aride; Grande Soeur Island; and Desroches Island.

An exclusive booking period is reserved for the cruise line’s Crystal Society Members from now until August 31. Thereafter, as from September 1, the cruises will be open to the public for bookings. Read More
