Crystal Expedition Cruises, the adventure cruising arm of luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises, has released its 2023 and early 2024 cruise itineraries for its new ship Crystal Endeavour.
The luxury expedition cruise yacht Crystal Endeavour will sail 27 cruise itineraries of 10 to 27 nights in 2023, spanning almost every region of the world.
“Our remote expeditions offer guests access to lands few people have ever laid eyes on, let alone set foot upon, and several you would be hard-pressed to find on a map,” said Jack Anderson, President, CrystalCruises.
“A number of places we visit are uninhabited by people, but are incredibly alive with wildlife, and our immersive expeditions allow guests an up-close and intimate level of discovery, along with unparalleled comfort and luxury in the world’s remote locations,” he added.
Crystal Expedition Cruises will offer three types of voyages – Remote Expeditions, Destination Explorations and Cultural Discovery – that balance voyages that explore beloved destinations in a new way because of the size of the ship, with new destinations that offer intriguing cultural sights and natural beauty.
Crystal Endeavour voyages include:
Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica
South America and offshore islands
Cape Verde and the Canary Islands
The Mediterranean and Western Europe
The British and Scottish Isles
Iceland and the Faroe Islands

Itinerary highlights include polar expeditions – such as explorations of the remote Ross Sea in Antarctica and an epic 19-night expedition to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica.
A transit of the Northeast Passage will take passengers to untouched lands teeming with wildlife, while expeditions to Russia’s Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya will offer a chance to see polar bears, walrus, whales, seals and Arctic foxes.
Immersive cultural journeys around Japan in the autumn season will explore historical sites, and famous gardens and landscapes.
