Setting sail from Anadyr
Way out in Russia's remote northeast sits the city of Anadyr, capital of the Chukotka autonomous region. Life here isn't as gloomy as you might think - buildings are painted in bright colours to keep spirits up during the harsh winter months, and the city enjoyed significant investment under the governorship of Roman Abramovich, the famous oligarch who now owns Chelsea Football Club. There are some interesting exhibits in the Chukotka Museum, including carvings made from walrus ivory and mammoth tusk, while beyond the city limits lies the bleak expanse of the tundra.

Arriving in Tokyo
Tokyo is a dazzling introduction to Japan and its utterly unique culture. With more neon than Las Vegas and more Michelin stars than Paris, it's a real assault on the senses, but an efficient public transport system means it's easy to explore. Asakusa is an atmospheric district where you'll find Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple, Akihibara spills over with shops selling electronic gadgets, and Harajuku is the place to marvel at the latest colourful Japanese fashions. It's also easy to escape the crowds and find a spot of peace and quiet, with tranquil parks, shrines and lotus ponds dotted around the city.
The world’s busiest pedestrian crossing at Shibuya. Take the metro to the station of the same name and watch as thousands cross simultaneously when the traffic lights turn red.

What we love
This is the coolest expedition operation yet. On board is the ultimate in luxury at the Crystal level we know so well, but even more exciting is what is going to happen off the ship, as they navigate first year ice in the polar regions and follow the route of migrating whales.
A wealth of extraordinary toys including submarines, helicopters and remote operated vehicles will ensure that a Crystal Yacht Expedition creates the most extraordinary memories even for the most jaded of travellers.
