Crystal Cruises Adding New Caribbean Stop

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 4, 2017

The island of Nevis will welcome Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises’ guests starting this November.

Luxury yacht Crystal Esprit will call on the island during its 14-day sailings for the next two years, according to the Nevis Tourism Board.

“Nevis looks forward to this new partnership with Crystal and commits to working hard to make this relationship a long term and mutually beneficial one,” said Nevis Minister of Foreign Affairs and Aviation Mark Brantley.

“Our aim is to provide the best possible yacht experience for travelers and as a luxury cruise line, Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises is an ideal complement to the luxury experiences that Nevis offers,” Brantley said. “We are happy to welcome them.”

The agreement was reached jointly between Brantley; John Stoll, Crystal’s Vice President of Land Programs; and Claudius Docekal, Crystal’s Vice President of Deployment, during Crystal’s recent visit to Nevis.

“The island of Nevis is such a tranquil and stunning location, and the perfect locale for our luxury yacht, Crystal Esprit,” Docekal said. “We are looking forward to introducing our Crystal guests to this remarkable and unique destination.”
