The most awarded luxury cruise line in the world, Crystal Cruises, is going to make a highly anticipated return to legendary Northwest Passage on August 15, 2017. Crystal Serenity is going to set sail and traverse the Arctic Ocean sailing out of Anchorage/Seward, Alaska to New York City via the famous route (500 miles north of Arctic Circle). This cruise will last 32 nights and will provide passengers with an expedition style of cruising.
The history that surrounds the route stems back to over 100 years ago when it was first completed by Roald Amundsen. This route covers 900 miles of waterways filled with stunning fjords, glaciers and vast landscapes. Crystal Cruises will be the largest luxury line to ever navigate the route.
In 2017, Crystal will partner once again with Expedition Voyage Consulting by EYOS Expeditions. The company offers bespoke expeditions to remote regions in the highest standard of luxury and safety. They will assist in planning the shore excursions. The expedition cruises will offer guests a rewarding experience as they learn about the local lands and cultures from Arctic region experts.
All cruise ships on Northwest Passage itineraries are escorted by an icebreaking vessel.
