Following in the footsteps of intrepid explorers and rugged expedition vessels, Crystal Serenity becomes the very first luxury ship
to ever traverse the Northwest Passage
, a mystical Pacific-Atlantic sea route far beyond the Arctic Circle that for centuries captured the imaginations of kings, explorers and adventurers.
Prepare to be dazzled on this once-in-a-lifetime expeditionary voyage
that marries extreme wilderness adventure with unsurpassed luxury cruising. Aboard Crystal Serenity, a dedicated 14-member professional expedition team will join you and the rest of the award-winning Crystal Cruises shipboard team as you navigate the majestic series of waterways comprising the fabled Northwest Passage, around Alaska
and into the Beaufort Sea, through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago

when favorable weather conditions allow—think rare wildlife sightings
of polar bears, narwhals, musk oxen and Caribou...or exciting arctic adventures
from Zodiac landings, kayaking in protected bays, to trekking the tundra with a professional guide. While Crystal Serenity is experienced in operating in some of the world’s most extreme locations, such as Antarctica and Alaska, an escort vessel will accompany the voyage carrying with it “adventure equipment” including a platform for wilderness landings, a helicopter and more.Crystal’s Northwest Passage
