Crystal Cruises has announced that bookings are now open for Iceland and Norway cruises aboard its new ship Crystal Endeavor.
Guests on the cruise will have the opportunity to explore Iceland’s “Lands of Fire and Ice” and the stunning fjords of Norway during this voyage, which sails from Reykjavík, Iceland to Tromsø, Norway from September 5 to 15, 2021.
The itinerary, called Journey of Vikings: Iceland & Norway, is part of Endeavor‘s inaugural season this year. It will showcase Icelandic wonders including geothermal springs, waterfalls, whale havens, and bird colonies, as well as the beauty of Norway through its fjords, glaciers, and picturesque villages. A notable highlight: the voyage crosses into the Arctic Circle, the land of the midnight sun.
Crystal’s new expedition ship features industry-leading space and service ratios, plenty of spots designed for wilderness viewing, and destination immersion with onboard enrichment from an expert Expedition Team, as well as shoreside explorations with Zodiac launches directly from the ship.
Crystal Endeavor‘s upcoming debut and inaugural season has been met with a lot of demand, with 50 percent of capacity for its recently-announced Luxury Iceland Expeditions reserved within the first 24 hours of its release.
