More than two years of planning. Another two years of anticipation. Countless hours of mentally preparing – packing, researching, imagining the unknown journey ahead.
Crystal’s Northwest Passage cruise is finally set to embark today as Crystal Serenity departs Seward, Alaska en route through one of the most elusive regions of the world. Captain Birger J. Vorland is pioneering this journey, accompanied by a host of accomplished expedition crew and officers, and even more specialized equipment and technology.
We’re ready. And we’re bringing you with us. Virtually, at least.
The ship is filled to capacity with travelers who just could not miss out on our first-ever expedition through the Northwest Passage, but there is more than enough room for everyone here on the Crystal Insider™. We’re thrilled to have travel journalist Katie Jackson (FoxNews.com, KatieTalksTravel.com) “joining the crew” for this voyage. Katie, an acclaimed writer and avid traveler, will be providing dispatches from the ship…or tundra, or zodiac, to help all of you indulge your wanderlust.
Follow along here, on the Crystal Insider™, for updates from the Arctic, as Katie shares her experiences discovering the undiscovered with approximately 1,000 of her fellow adventurers and new closest friends.
NOTE: If Katie’s dispatches inspire you to embark on the ultimate Crystal adventure (and we’re sure they will), the 2017 Northwest Passage voyage is open for booking.
