Crystal Esprit Cruise Review by wdbentley
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Europe
Every crew member was pleasant and cheerful - always a smile and a greeting. The Patio cafe for a light location for breakfast and lunch. The Yacht Club dining room was low lit and pleasant place to dine. The Cove Bar was a comfortable place to read during the day and have a drink in the evening. Our chef brought around delicious canapés each evening - perfect. We were treated to champagne and caviar on the penultimate evening of the cruise.
Deck 5 - Sun deck was well equipped and there was plenty of seating for evening drinks as well as lounging during the day. The bar was always ready to serve everything from coffee to cocktails and you could even have an early snack up there.
The ports visited were all interesting and without exception the guides on the tours were knowledgeable and entertaining.
Our one complaint was the air conditioning on board - in the cabin particularly - it was cold and there was no temperature control. We asked for the fan to be turned down to make it bearable. We escaped to the Cove Bar where it was warm if we wanted to read as it was too cold anywhere in the cabin but in bed under the doona. The Patio cafe had an automatic door and this had a life of its own on chilly mornings - opening and closing and freezing those having breakfast.

VeniceWhat a fun excursion - it was quite difficult as it's opposite to ordinary rowing - it's all in the wrist! - the Rowing club members were humorous and patient with us. We even got a certificate followed by a glass of Prosecco!View All 13,326 Venice Cruise Port Reviews
