Luxury Cruise Options Grow as Crystal adds Mega-Yacht to its Fleet

Crystal Endeavor Rendering Polar300pxFollowing closely on the heels of Regent Seven Seas lux cruise ship announcement, now Crystal is expanding with a new luxury mega-yacht in its fleet. AND, they are also jumping into another growing trend – polar travel.

Yes, it’s exciting news for travel! There are so many high end options and so many new locations. All this rivalry makes for wonderful amenities, competing pricing and endless variety for travellers. What a great time to hop on a cruise and go in-style to places you’ve never been before.

Oops, I got a bit distracted with excitement, returning to Crystal’s news – their new mega-yacht, Crystal Endeavor, will launch August 2018 carry 200 passengers, have 100 guest suites and will be the largest mega-yacht afloat. It will be the first purpose-built polar class mega-yacht at 600 feet long cruising to the Antarctic, Arctic and tropical regions.

And what makes this a Polar Class yacht? Crystal explains it will navigate polar regions in summer and fall and will be fitted with offshore positioning technology and special systems to automatically maintain its position with propellers and thrusters. This allows it to float on top of coral reefs and other underwater marvels without anchors that can damage reefs or other underwater terrain.

On the luxury side, the Endeavor will have 400 sq ft standard suites as well as two 3,122 sq ft ‘owner’ suites that offer 3 bedrooms, private conservatory, garden, private spa/gym with sauna, steam room, treatment room and outdoor Jacuzzi – that’s all in one ‘owner’ suite. The yacht will offer 270 degree views for whale or wildlife watching. The mega-yacht will also include 6 dining options, lecture rooms, cinema, 200 seat theatre and a 10,000 sq ft spa/conservatory.

Endeavor’s expedition options will include two helicopters and two landing pads, eight amphibious zodiacs, jet skis, two 7-person submarines, wave runners, all sorts of water equipment, multi-person ATV, underwater scooters, scuba equipment, a recompression chamber and dive support tender....Wow, what a list. An underwater scooter? I can’t even picture what that would look like.

Crystal Cruises is the “World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line,” having earned more “World’s Best” accolades than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history.

While Crystal continues to expand and diversify their collection of luxury travel options, they are also setting the bar very high for other cruise lines to follow. All good news for travellers!
