Crystal Cruises was forced to cancel itineraries on 62-passenger Crystal Esprit maiden voyage due to "technical upgrades".
The Esprit yacht is actually a refurbished 20-year-old vessel. The following itineraries will be cancelled:
- March 26-April 3 from Aqaba to Limassol, Cyprus;
- April 3-April 10 from Limassol to Athens/Piraeus, Greece;
- April 10-April 17 from Athens/Piraeus to Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Crystal Cruises confirmed that Crystal Esprit sailings will continue as planned from April 17, with a 7-day voyage from Dubrovnik to Venice, Italy.
Christened in the Seychelles, the all-suite yacht features multiple bars, dining venues, and an aft marina, with complimentary jet skis, kayaks, fishing and snorkeling equipment. Crystal Esprit also carries a small submarine.
