Crystal Cruises to Sail the Northwest Passage in 2016
Currently only available to Crystal Society members (Crystal Cruises‘ past passengers), a once-in-a-lifetime chance to traverse the seldom seen Northwest Passage is now available for 2016 with Crystal Cruises. Once considered impassible by seafarers, this maiden voyage for Crystal Cruises will blend the remote beauty of this isolated voyage above Canada, with the luxury Crystal Cruises is known for. The cruise reservations will open to non-past Crystal passengers on September 1, 2014, but space is extremely limited!
Departing from Anchorage, Alaska and sailing 900 miles to New York City, this voyage is the first of its kind aboard the amazing Crystal Serenity. Along the way you will experience fjords, untouched glaciers and a backdrop of breathtaking beauty.
It’s taken over two years to plan this voyage with the utmost attention to safety for both the passengers and local ecosystems. Guest speakers throughout this tour will deliver lectures on climate change and how it has already impacted the sites on this voyage. Here are some of the new experiences in store for Crystal Cruises’ passengers.
Calls of the Wild:
Unplanned stops to view wildlife will be made, allowing guest to take advantage of polar bear and whale sightings. This flexible approach to the itinerary will allow guests to enjoy the best sightseeing opportunities and weather throughout their voyage.
Beyond the amazing wildlife, you’ll also be able to experience truly isolated local communities and marvel at their ingenuity and tenacity to live in such a harsh climate.
Crystal’s Northwest Passage voyage will take you to Kodiak, Dutch Harbor and Nome, Alaska; Ulukhaktok, NW Territories; Cambridge Bay and Pond Inlet, Nunavut; Ilulissat, Sisimiut and Nuuk, Greenland; Bar Harbor, Maine; Boston; Newport, Rhode Island, and New York City. In between your ports of call, you will visit famous bodies of water such as the Bering Sea, Coronation Gulf, Larsen Sound and the Labrador Sea, just to name a few.
Adventure will not be in short supply. Opportunities for everything from camping to playing the world’s most northern golf course will be available. Regardless of what tickles your fancy, this voyage will have something for everyone!
