Crystal Cruises newest division – Crystal Yacht Cruises – has unveiled its culinary concept for the food to be featured onboard the upcoming Crystal Esprit beginning in December 2015. The 62-guest expedition yacht will serve Crystal favorites from the Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony as well as locally-sourced Michelin-starred cuisine from the Seychelles Islands and Mediterranean coast.
“The outstanding food and wine experience has always been a highlight of the Crystal Experience and will continue to be an integral part of the onboard experience aboard Crystal Yacht Cruises,” says Crystal President & CEO Edie Rodriguez. “With public spaces and dining areas that are more intimate, our superior culinary team will maintain – and even exceed – the standard of world-class, creative cuisine that travelers expect from Crystal.”
Crystal Yacht Cruises outlines the culinary venues and offerings in detail below:
- The Yacht Club and its outdoor extension, the Patio Café restaurants 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 including made-to-order pastas and risottos, seafood and meat antipasti, and a raw and salad bar, plus an à la carte menu offering local dishes; dinner menus include a Modern Tasting menu and a Classic menu including local inspired dishes using the freshest ingredients found at the local markets, all served in a bright and immaculate setting with expansive windows and sea breezes;
- The Sunset Bar & Grill (rendered in the header above) 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;
- Crystal Esprit Guest Suites also allow travelers to indulge in the plush privacy of their own staterooms, with available 24-hour stateroom dining.
