Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises unveiled the itineraries of its newest vessel, Crystal Endeavor, which will depart on its maiden voyage in August 2020 and sail through January 2021 for its inaugural season.

With a focus on traveling to destinations far off the beaten path, Crystal Endeavor will sail on expeditions ranging from 12 to 22 days exploring the bio-diversity of Japan, the Russian Far East, New Zealand, Australia and Antarctica, plus tropical wildlands will also be featured. The expedition yacht will make seasonal shifts so in addition to Antarctic explorations, sun-seeking guests will have warmer destinations to choose from. The 12 unique voyages are now available for booking for Crystal Society guests and will open to the public on Aug. 22, 2018, with expedition and excursion details to be announced at a later date. Guests on the 17-day Russian Far East Maiden Expedition departing Aug. 10, 2020 will receive a complimentary 1-night, pre-cruise luxury hotel stay and have the opportunity to participate in the yacht’s naming event.

“Every facet of Crystal Endeavor is meant to take travelers beyond their previous travel boundaries and expectations. Her exceptional design, luxury accommodations and amenities have already set the stage for this, and now, as we unveil her first six months of journeys, travelers have a tremendous glimpse of the grand discoveries in store for this groundbreaking yacht,” said Crystal president and CEO Tom Wolber, in press materials.

Other itineraries include Japan’s Cultural & Coastal Discovery; Philippines, Borneo & Indonesia Quest; Australian Offshore & The Great Barrier Reef; Tasmania & The Fjords of New Zealand; and Antarctica & The Ross Sea Expedition, among others
