Luxury travellers have a comprehensive new tool to help plan journeys beyond the beaten path, as Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises unveils its Crystal Endeavor Voyage Planner.
The 38-page brochure artfully showcases highlights of the expedition yacht’s inaugural season, from August 2020 through January 2021, as well as details of the onboard luxuries and amenities guests will enjoy as they traverse the farthest reaches of the globe. Itineraries of 12 to 22 days will explore the Russian Far East and Japan; Australia and the Great Barrier Reef; Borneo, Indonesia and the Philippines; New Zealand and Tasmania; and Antarctica. Along the way, guests can immerse themselves in the active adventures, as well as the history and culture of each destination with a focus on rare and authentic experiences.
At 20,000 GRT with a PC6 designation, Crystal Endeavor will be the largest, most spacious purpose-built polar class expedition yacht in the world, accommodating just 200 guests and boasting all the luxurious amenities and special touches for which Crystal is known.
The yacht will feature generous public spaces, a full-service spa & salon, six restaurants including Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma, expedition rooms and elegant suites that contrast beautifully with the rugged adventures beyond the vessel. Crystal Endeavor’s accommodations will also be industry game-changers, as some of the most spacious suites in expedition cruising, with private butler service for every suite and innovative butler pass-throughs for maximized service and privacy. Luxury touches in every suite include king-sized beds, walk-in closets; heated storage for drying parkas; spa-like bathrooms with adjustable heated floors, dual vanities, anti-fog mirrors and rain-showerheads.
