This is a qualified "No"; the ship is lovely and very luxurious. The service is amazing. However, it isn't tailored to people who want to be more adventurous or want to hike when off the ship. There are no lectures or information about the ports unless you go on one of the tours of the town. They need to have talks the night before each stop and maps and walking trail information as well as history for those of us who don't want to go with the groups. For those who do, I would recommend the ship.

What a fantastic experience. The crew (every one of them) were exceptional. The ship itself was luxurious and everything needed to make the voyage ultra comfortable.

This ship was wonderful - only 62 passengers but probably 2 to 1 crew. The crew was amazing; the food was amazing - the ship was clean - we could not have been happier! I sprain my foot about the 5th day of this cruise - the ship's doctor accompanied me to the hospital in Montenegro for X-rays - my husband and I thought that was amazing that he would go with us. We have cruised on Crystal before so we were not surprised at the level of service. We will definitely cruise the Crystal Line again.

Great experience

A truly memorable trip from Dubrovnik to Athens with a small group to celebrate a 50th birthday. The crew of the Esprit were incredible - welcoming, friendly, professional and willing to go above and beyond at any time. From start to finish everything was fabulous... I have to commend the Chef and his crew for consistently producing 5* Michelin quality feasts every evening - innovative and delicious! From the moment of arrival everyone seemed to know your name, your preferences and special occasions. The ports of call were fun with a very diverse selection of complimentary tours as well as extras. The staterooms were large with lovely huge walk in showers and our Butler, Nathaniel and housekeepers Gee & Julita seemed to be on duty 24 hours a day! Would highly recommend this yacht and their fantastic crew. We made some wonderful friends!

This was a new experience in terms of ship size for us, however the service and dining aboard the Esprit was very much like our Crystal experiences on other Crystal trips we have taken. The smaller boat made it possible to get to know a large proportion of our fellow travelers.

Excellent. Crew very hospitable and attentive. Food excellent. Shore Itineraries very good. Restricted access to bridge a disappointment...especially since other "yachting" cruises allow unrestricted access except when entering or leaving port. Pre-tour briefings and visits only provided in writing. Verbal briefings given by other "yachting" cruses more useful.

It was a wonderful boat and a great itinerary. The owners suite was worth the expense.
