F rom the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line comes the world’s most spacious luxury expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor ® . The all-suite, all-verandah ship, with a sleek design built to PC6 Polar Class specifications and anchor-free dynamic positioning technology – allowing for intrepid discovery of remote polar regions – is set to explore the farthest reaches of Earth. Featuring two thrilling voyages that embody the spirit of bold exploration, “Antarctica & the Ross Sea Expedition” voyages (January 6 and 28, 2021) approach the remote terrain of Antarctica via the rarely traveled Ross Sea and its namesake ice shelf. Here, islands boast geological wonders produced by the extreme conditions, and penguins and sea life outnumber human explorers by the millions. These two 22-day Antarctic expedition voyages sail between Christchurch, New Zealand, and Hobart, Tasmania, fully embracing the remote and adventurous nature of the region. Tread ground broken by great explorers Amundsen, Ross, Scott and Shackleton, and marvel at the incredible topography where glaciers meet volcanoes; where the Antarctic minke whales and orcas share icy waters with leopard seals, Adélie and Emperor penguins; and where petrels and skuas fly overhead. Learn about the intensive research and conservation efforts of various scientific bases in the areas of geology, oceanography, marine biology, seismology and other pivotal subjects, and catch your breath at the dramatic views in every direction. Hosted by Crystal’s award-winning staff, attentive butlers and an experienced Expedition Team, a mere 200 guests will be exposed to rare wildlife sightings, intriguing cultures and the iconic landscapes.
