Crystal Cruises has officially opened bookings for Crystal Endeavor’s 2021 itineraries.

The 200-guest expedition ship, which launches next August, will sail cruises ranging from 10-28 nights, visiting a host of destinations including Antarctica, Japan, the Russian Far East, Alaska, Australia and the Northeast Passage.

The Northeast Passage itinerary has only a few suites remaining.

Crystal’s senior vice president, marketing and sales Carmen Roig said: “The enthusiasm from travellers surrounding Crystal Endeavor has definitely carried over from her inaugural season.

“The new 2021 voyages are innovative expeditions designed to showcase some of the most legendary destinations, as well as those that reach beyond typical travel lists, and some unexpected discoveries along the way.

“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 will offer scuba diving, Zodiac landings and aerial tours in select destinations. Onboard, guest expedition guides, scientists and destination experts will lead interactive presentations that focus on history, traditions and natural landscapes.

Prices start from £7,730pp when booked by 30 April 2019.
