2016 Northwest Passage Expedition

Crystal's Northwest Passage: 
Unprecedented Adventure, Historic Cruise-Expeditions

Aboard Crystal Serenity |  Cruising August 16 – September 17, 2016 (32 days)

Imagine the World’s Best Cruise Line taking you on the ultimate journey...

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 and on to Greenland. Here in the Land of the Midnight Sun, you will bear witness to breathtaking landscapes that few have ever seen, from spectacular glaciers to towering fjords, and experience nature that is truly wild.

Two years of extensive planning has gone into this carefully curated itinerary, balancing days at sea with scheduled ports of call. Intentionally designed to be flexible, the Captain and his expanded team of navigation experts will incorporate unplanned “expedition days” 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 heralds the beginning of a new era of exploration for the cruise line voted World’s Best more than any other in history. As our inaugural expedition-style cruise, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the integrity of the experience—authentic discovery and pure adventure, as well as the careful respect of the remote communities we will be visiting.

So grand is the voyage and rare the adventure, we have a created a dedicated webpage detailing all that you need to know to prepare for this incredible journey including the proper gear and accessories you need on this once-in-a-lifetime expedition. Plus, we have a comprehensive FAQ webpage as well that addresses questions from how we will interact with the people of the Arctic and what kind of wildlife we can expect to see, to what to pack, trip insurance, medical requirements, safety and communication, environmental concerns and more.

Join us for the voyage of a lifetime, of thrilling adventure, privileged discovery and incomparable luxury.
