Crystal, Arctic Expeditions Set Sail

Crystal Cruises and Arctic Expeditions are partnering once again for the Crystal Serenity second sailing of the Northwest Passage in August.

A team of experts from Arctic Kingdom will be on board the cruise to share both their knowledge and passion for the region’s unique culture, wildlife and geography with guests onboard, as well as lead discovery expeditions ashore.

The 32-day voyage departs Anchorage/Seward, Alaska for New York City on Aug. 15 and sails through some of the most spectacular, remote areas of the previously unpassable polar region.

The Crystal Serenity’s 2017 Northwest Passage Explorer will mark the final voyage for a classic Crystal ocean ship to sail through the Arctic region.

All-inclusive cruise fares start at $21,855 per person. Crystal’s “Crystal Clear Choices” promotional savings offers additional value for bookings made by March 31.

Edie Rodriguez, Crystal’’s chairman, CEO and president, said that partnering with Arctic Kingdom further raises the bar on the experience for our guests by offering them expertise from local adventurers.

Said Rodriquez, “Planning and collaboration with top experts and authorities is a must to ensure the safety of our guests and crew. We continue to work closely with the United States and Canadian Coast Guards, Transport Canada, and a myriad of federal, state, provincial, territorial and local government agencies.”
