In 2020, a significant event for lovers of sea travel will take place - the launch of the largest cruise yacht in the world called Crystal Endeavor. This is a completely new vessel, specially designed for crossing ice latitudes. Cruises on such a mega-yacht will allow tourists to plunge into the atmosphere of glaciers and snowy peaks, which until then were seen only by scientists.
In March, Crystal was notified that MV WERFTEN, the shipbuilding company that is building the Crystal Endeavor, would temporarily suspend operations at its sites in Rostock, Stralsund and Wismar to protect employees during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Since there is uncertainty as to when work can be fully resumed on the ship, it is with deep regret that Crystal made the decision to postpone the launch of the liner and cancel all routes until October 31, 2020.
The ship's first cruise will be a 14-day cruise in Tasmania and the New Zealand fjords, starting on November 14, 2020.
The ship has the following technical characteristics:
Year of construction - 2020
Length - 183 m
Displacement - 19800 t
Number of decks - 10
Number of cabins - 100
Passenger capacity - 200 people.
Crew - 200 people.
At Crystal Endeavor, avid tourists will have the opportunity to make real expeditions to Arctic, Antarctic and even tropical waters.
Wait a few seconds...
When Crystal Cruises announced plans to build a Crystal Endeavor, it said the cabins would be among the "largest, most spacious." Forget about the relatively small numbers on board the old expedition ships Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.
