Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MIAMI — Bookings are now open for Crystal Endeavor’s 2021 expeditions, which range from 10-28 nights and sail to destinations around the world.
The polar class expedition yacht will offer deep cultural immersions in Antarctica; Japan; the Russian Far East; Aleutian Islands and Alaska; Australia/Tasmania and New Zealand; Indonesia and the Indian Ocean; Norway and the United Kingdom; Western Europe; Canary Islands and Atlantic; and South America. Plus, the ship’s groundbreaking itinerary through the Northeast Passage – announced last month and initially opened for bookings only to Crystal Society guests – has been well received, with just a few suites still available.
“The enthusiasm from travellers surrounding Crystal Endeavor has definitely carried over from her inaugural season,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president, marketing and sales. “The new 2021 voyages are innovative expeditions designed to showcase some of the most legendary destinations, as well as those that reach typical travel lists, and some unexpected discoveries along the way.”
The Crystal Endeavor will accommodate 200 guests and feature expansive public spaces, all-suite, butler-serviced guestrooms, Michelin-inspired dining options including Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma & Sushi Bar, the full-service Crystal Life Salon & Spa and a state-of-the-art fitness center. There’ll also be designated ‘mud rooms’ for expeditions, a helicopter lounge, and interactive presentations onboard with expedition guides and scientists that focus on the history and natural landscapes unique to each region.
Fares start at US$9,549 per guest with up to $ 10,000 Book Now Savings per suite when booked by April 30, 2019.
