A pristine archipelago, the Seychelles beckons with unspoiled sugar- white beaches, lush emerald mountains, UNESCO-protected wildlife reserves and crystalline waters home to some of the world’s most dynamic coral reefs. This Crystal Cruises Indian Ocean adventure sees passengers embark on a round trip through the islands on board the Crystal Esprit from 12-19 February 2017. Aside from calling at Port Victoria, Mahe, the seven-night cruise explores some of the Seychelles’ most beautiful onshore spots, including Sainte Anne island, La Digue, Praslin, Curieuse Island, Cousin Island and Aride.
A 62-passenger luxury yacht, Crystal Esprit is equipped with a yacht tender, four zodiac boats, jet skis, kayaks, scuba equipment and a two- passenger submarine, enabling guests to explore the crystal clear waters and abundant marine life. It offers a luxury expedition-style getaway that also includes biking, hiking and plenty of private beach time and will appeal to active adventure-seekers as well as guests who enjoy sailing away from the crowds.
