Crystal Cruises has unveiled the culinary concept for the 62-guest Crystal Esprit, the upcoming luxury yacht product being released as part of Crystal Cruises’ major expansion. The Michelin starred cuisine will focus heavily on quality local ingredients of the Seychelles Islands and Mediterranean coast and will showcase many favorite dishes from Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity.
The yacht will set sail in December 2015 with an elegant and eclectic menu of globally inspired cuisine, from extraordinary seafood cuisine on the al fresco terrace, to decadent pastries, snacks, espresso and wine in the quaint corner bar.
Crystal Esprit will offer guests an array of culinary choices at any time of day or night, from small bites and midnight snacks, to casual lunches.
The Yacht Club and its outdoor extension, the Patio Cafe, will serve a selection of Crystal’s modern and classic specialties, with made-to-order omelets, waffles and pancakes and a health bar with fresh fruit and vegetable juices for breakfast.
Lunch options will include made-to-order pastas and risottos, seafood and meat antipasti, and a raw and salad bar, plus an a la carte menu offering local dishes.
For dinner, guests can enjoy a Modern Tasting menu and a Classic menu, including locally inspired dishes, all served in a setting with expansive windows and sea breezes.
The Sunset Bar & Grill menu will feature burgers, wraps and locally inspired “global street food,” served tapas style and reflecting the destinations visited.
The Pantry will serve as the 24-hour “go-to” spot for freshly baked light snacks and pastries, coffee and a self-service wine bar.
Guests will also be able to take advantage of 24-hour stateroom dining in the plush privacy of their own staterooms.
