MISSION COMPLETE: SCENES FROM THE 2017 NORTHWEST PASSAGE

Crystal Serenity completed her second transit through the Northwest Passage and surrounding Arctic territories, arriving in New York City on Saturday, September 16. This journey proved no less remarkable than the first time Crystal made this trek, offering guests on board innumerable breathtaking moments, wild encounters and heart-pounding adventures throughout the 32-day voyage.

Ted Pobud, one of the expert dance hosts sailing aboard the 2017 Northwest Passage cruise, shared his considerable rhythm and talent with guests on board. However, here on the Crystal Insider, Ted is sharing another of his talents: the art of capturing some of those unforgettable sights and moments. Along with images from Crystal team members, we are delighted to share some of the most awe-striking scenes from this year’s journey.

Exactly one year to the day from this spectacular sight experienced aboard the 2016 Northwest Passage cruise, Crystal Serenity guests again marveled at the Northern Lights as the ship steered toward Greenland. (Photo courtesy of John Stoll, vice president of land programs)

    A trip of a lifetime. It will even make the Crystal team scratch their collective heads in trying to come up with another trip that is comparable. When you do please let me know. John Allert
