First look at Crystal Endeavor; new look for Crystal Serenity

MIAMI — Crystal is giving the industry its first look at Crystal Endeavor, set to debut in 2020 as the cruise line’s first expedition yacht.

At 19,800 GRT Crystal bills the all-suite, purpose-built polar class yacht as the largest and most spacious expedition yacht in the world.

Crystal President and CEO Tom Wolber shared some of Crystal Endeavor’s design features planned at Seatrade Cruise Global in Fort Lauderdale.

“Crystal’s entrance into the expedition cruising industry is a natural response to the demand from an increasing segment of travelers, craving more immersive and active experiences in lesser known destinations around the world,” says Wolber.

Dining options will include Prego, serving traditional Italian fare, Crystal’s signature ‘Vintage Room’ winemaker dinners; and Umi Uma headlined by Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

The yacht will also feature the main dining venue, Waterside; the Asian-inspired Silk Kitchen & Bar, located in the two-storey solarium during the evenings; and the European-inspired Bistro Café.

Palm Court, a favourite hub for afternoon tea, cocktails, dancing and floor-to-ceiling views aboard Crystal’s ocean and river ships, will be on board Crystal Endeavor for evening entertainment, as well as enrichment presentations and classes. Other favored social spaces will be the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge, Crystal Cove and the only casino on an expedition yacht.
