Crystal Cruises announces 2017 Northwest Passage cruise


Crystal Cruises have just announced that in August 2017, Crystal Serenity will return to transit the fabled Northwest Passage - a fascinating journey far north of the Arctic Circle that for centuries has captured the imaginations of the world's most intrepid explorers.

This incredible 32-day expedition-style voyage travels from Seward to New York City and is available to book from 7th March 2016, but you can waitlist for your preferred accommodation now.

A huge amount of extensive research and detailed planning has gone into the preparations of this extraordinary sailing. Crystal have engaged the expertise of Canadian Coast Guard officials and Arctic marine scientists, and have assembled an incredible expedition team of wildlife experts, naturalists, photographers and historians.

They have created new Crystal Wilderness Adventures to take advantage of unexpected opportunities for discovery such as exploration by Zodiac, kayaks and helicopter, and they have also consulted with local community leaders to ensure your time ashore is meaningful for both you and the Inuit people.

We know from experience that this voyage will sell out quickly, so it's essential to book early to secure your accommodation.
