What a disappointment

Crystal Esprit Cruise Review by hhishome

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2018
  • Destination: the Caribbean

We love small ships. We thought this would be the best yet. In reality, for us it was a serious disappointment.

The service was pretty good.

The food was incredible on the first night, and never got back to that level.

There is only one dinner restaurant option, which gets boring.

The music is weak, and at the top side bar it's non stop techno?

The itinerary was horrendous. The cruise line seems more committed to pushing customers into Hurricane Ravaged Islands to help the local economies than a great experience for their guests. Cystal should have dramatically changed the itinerary to parts of the Caribbean which were not damaged. On the last 3 cruises on this itinerary they had 8/18/36 passengers out of a full load of 60. We should have cancelled.

The very shallow draft (10') means you will rock most of the time. Even in the Caribbean, we rocked aggressively half the nights.

We cruise a lot, and we're probably one and done with this line.
