crystal endeavor at sea

Crystal Expedition Cruises announced a nine-night Caribbean itinerary for the new luxury expedition yacht Crystal Endeavor, featuring once-in-a-lifetime encounters on remote islands, calls in exclusive harbours typically only accessible to private yachts and sailboats.

Along with the rare opportunity for U.S. travellers to embark from a close-to-home port and cruise aboard the state-of-the-art expedition yacht during her inaugural season.

The new nine-night voyage, Expedition Yachting: Caribbean Mystique, will sail from Miami to San Juan October 25 – November 3, 2021, calling on Great Exuma and Man of War Bay, Inagua Island, Bahamas; White Bay and Great Harbor (overnight) on Jost Van Dyke, and Norman Island in the British Virgin Islands; Gustavia, St. Barts; and Saba, Netherlands; concluding in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Guests who have sailed onboard Crystal Endeavor since her launch in July are loving the expedition experience, both for the unique and remote destinations, she can access, as well as the expansive public spaces, Michelin-inspired cuisine and unmatched one-to-one staff to guest ratio with every suite featuring Crystal’s renowned butler service.

The German-built 20,200 GRT Crystal Endeavor is the ninth ship in the award-winning cruise line’s worldwide fleet and is the fastest and most powerful expedition ship in the industry. 

Because of the size of Crystal Endeavor, the ship will be able to explore rare, off-the-beaten-path destinations, for example on this voyage, Great Inagua has no natural harbour so cruise ships cannot call there, but Crystal Endeavor will position in Man of War Bay and launch Zodiacs from the ship’s own marina.

Swimming with the Pigs

Another once in a lifetime opportunity will be swimming with the pigs of Major Cay it’s a favourite experience as well as a fantastic photo op off Great Exuma, where crystal-clear waters offer fantastic swimming, snorkelling and kayaking from the ship’s marina.

At 100 gross tons and 10,000 cubic feet per guest and a guest space ratio of more than 100, she has the largest space per guest of any ship at sea. Luxuriously designed to offer discerning travellers elegantly expansive private and public spaces.

The ship accommodates just 200 guests in 100 well-appointed all-verandah, all-butler serviced suites, among the largest and most spacious in expedition cruising.

This once in a lifetime trip will depart Miami, Florida on the 25th October 2021, sailing a 9-night itinerary eventually ending in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico on the 3rd November 2021. For more info check out this link
