              In true Crystal fashion, these rugged adventures are also blissfully indulgent and the all-suite, all-verandah, all-butler serviced Crystal Endeavor is also luxuriously all-inclusive, with everything from Zodiac landings and kayak adventures to fine wines and gratuities, conveniently included. Guests booking new Antarctic sailings can take their pampering to the next level by utilizing their $1,000 “As You Wish” shipboard spending credit to enjoy spa treatments, shopping at the onboard designer boutiques, fine cigars at the Connoisseur Club or perhaps a rare experience like helicopter flightseeing launched directly from the ship’s own helipad.

              Taking immersive adventures to new heights Crystal Endeavor will travel with two helicopters offering guests the option for a bird’s eye view of magnificent Antarctic landscapes, while a six-guest submersible offers the chance to experience the underwater world and wildlife of this incredible destination.* The ship carries a fleet of 18 Zodiacs and 14 sea kayaks allowing the expedition team to take to the water with guests for up-close experiences, following the adventures wherever they may lead.

              The first ever PC6 luxury expedition yacht to be “Made in Germany,” Crystal Endeavor was built at MV WERFTEN in Stralsund, part of a family of shipyards known for their passenger ship, icebreaker and private yacht building expertise. The ship was designed for superior operation and performance in polar conditions with a focus on the power, reliability, and painstaking craftsmanship for which German engineering is known. Crystal Endeavor’s responsiveness, agile maneuverability, and safety and technical capabilities can be compared to a finely tuned German sportscar like a Porsche, allowing the vessel to explore boldly and with confidence in remote locations.

              A PC6 classification allows her to cruise in Arctic and Antarctic waters, while state-of-the-art FarSounder 1000 technology allows the captain and bridge officers to detect sea life and underwater objects far in advance and navigate appropriately, utilizing real-time 3-D imaging of the terrain up to 1,000 meters ahead and 50 meters deep. The ship’s propulsion system includes two Azipod D units and a diesel electric power plant designed specifically for ice-going vessels to help them operate at optimum efficiency while providing substantial power, offering guests a smooth and powerful ride, especially important while cruising in Antarctica and the Arctic.

              Crystal Endeavor’s luxurious design will offer discerning travelers elegantly casual, expansive private and public spaces with 100 gross tons per person and 10,000 cubic feet per guest for a passenger space ratio of more than 100. The ship accommodates just 200 guests with a one-to-one crew-to-guest ratio delivering the personal and genuine service for which Crystal is known. Accommodations are elegantly appointed retreats for guests after days full of exploration, with every suite offering a private veranda and the attentions of butler service.

              Throughout the ship, Crystal hallmarks will accent guests’ onboard experience: Michelin-inspired dining options including Umi Uma, the first and only Japanese restaurant on an expedition ship, Italian fine dining at Prego, 24-hour room service and the Vintage Room experience; spacious social spaces; the only casino on an expedition yacht; a glass-covered, two-story solarium – which houses the Seahorse Pool and Jacuzzi – providing panoramic views from sea to sky; and the full-service Crystal Life Salon & Spa with a state-of-the-art Fitness Center as well as a wrap-around Promenade Deck, rare in the industry but an iconic Crystal design element. Expedition-specific amenities and spaces will enhance guests’ experience, including enrichment areas, designated mud rooms, and an Expedition Lounge. The ship’s marina will feature the “toys” found aboard a private yacht for further explorations including a fleet of zodiacs, kayaks, snorkel gear, and more.

*The Expedition Team will maintain a keen eye so that if an opportunity arises and conditions allow, the captain will attempt to position the vessel accordingly. The order of expedition calls/stops and/or itineraries may change due to weather/sea conditions or permit specifications.
