VIP West Indies Cricket Cruise -Hosted by Celebrity Cricketer David Gower O.B.E

With this excellent itinerary you will be able to enjoy fantastic cricket and visit a variety of delightful (yet contrasting) islands – and you only need to unpack once! We are also able to offer pre-cruise holiday in Barbados for the two ODIs at the Kensington Oval, as well as our post-cruise option which visits St Lucia for the final ODI and the first T20.

There are just 28 suites aboard Crystal Esprit and therefore demand will be high. If this unique experience is something of interest, please get in touch with our team as soon as possible, and reserve your place on what is sure to be a memorable sporting adventure.

Crystal Esprit

Celebrating 27 years of excellence, Crystal Cruises is the world’s most awarded luxury cruise line. In 2015 Crystal Esprit was launched; an all-suite, 62-guest luxury yacht that offers personal service and abundant space in an elegant atmosphere that we feel perfectly reflects the ‘island pace’ of Caribbean life.

Luxurious interiors and inviting social spaces are designed to Crystal’s unrivalled standards of service, space, quality and choice. Itineraries are always designed to complement your yachting experience and include a host of complimentary excursions and amenities. Choose to enjoy active watersports in the sparkling Caribbean waters, or unwind and watch the world drift lazily by as you gaze out of the windows at the Cove Bar. Take time to relax and dine at your leisure, or simply lie back on deck with a good book.

The open-air Sunset Bar is perfect for sunset viewing and champagne toasts, and Cove Lounge is a favourite spot for evening entertainment around the baby grand. Additionally, of course,  the famous State of Play function ensures plenty of entertainment courtesy of a selection of cricketing celebrity guests.
