Crystal Expedition Cruises has revealed the 2021 itineraries for its luxury expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor.

The 200-guest ship, which launches next year, has a range of 10- to 28-night cruises, taking in destinations such as Antarctica; Japan; the Russian Far East, Aleutian Islands and Alaska; as well as Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania.

Crystal will also take guests to Indonesia and the Indian Ocean; Norway and the United Kingdom; Western Europe; the Canary Islands and the Atlantic; and South America.

A highlight is a voyage of the Northeast Passage in February 2021.

Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales Carmen Roig said: “The voyages offered aboard Crystal Endeavor go far beyond a typical luxury cruise. Guests will have opportunities for rare wildlife sightings – bold, unexpected experiences and adventures that present themselves along the journeys, guided by our expedition teams – and intimate exposure to less explored destinations and cultures.

Crystal Endeavor is made for this kind of exploration and is capable of taking travellers farther than they imagined, while they enjoy Crystal’s signature luxuries and service that welcome them home.”

The ship will feature guest expedition guides, scientists and destination experts on board, as well as opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking, snorkelling and diving, as well as helicopter and Zodiac tours.

Crystal Endeavor’s 2021 expeditions will be open for booking on 13 March 2019.
