Crystal has announced the latest design details for its upcoming expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor, for Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises. Aboard Crystal Symphony, Crystal’s president and CEO, Tom Wolber, shared the first glimpse of the luxury accommodations on the yacht during Crystal’s 27th Annual Sales Gala celebrating the company’s top producers.

At 19,800 GRT, Crystal Endeavor will be the largest, purpose-built polar class expedition yacht in the world, Crystal said, though it will accommodate just 200 guests. The yacht will have several public spaces, a full-service spa and salon, six restaurants including Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma, expedition rooms, and luxury suites.

Crystal Endeavor’s accommodations will have private verandas and butler service for every suite. Luxury touches include king-sized beds; walk-in closets; heated storage for drying parkas; and spa-like bathrooms with adjustable heated floors, dual vanities, anti-fog mirrors and rain shower heads. Technological amenities in the suites include ambient lighting, interactive streaming TVs, and bedside iPads that offer voyage information and international daily newspapers.

The 100 suites will include two Crystal Penthouse Suites (985 square feet to 1,130 square feet), eight Penthouse Suites (457 square feet) and 90 Deluxe Suites (304 square feet). The larger of the two Crystal Penthouse Suites has a two-bedroom layout, while the other one-bedroom plan connects to an adjacent Deluxe Suite through an adjoining entry, aimed at families and friends traveling together. Both offer dedicated dining areas and butler’s prep space for in-suite dining from any of Crystal Endeavor’s eateries. The Penthouse Suites and Deluxe Suites have separated sleeping and sitting areas, private verandas and desk vanity areas.

Crystal marked the steel cutting milestone for the 100-suite Crystal Endeavor in January, and shared initial design plans for the yacht’s public spaces in March. The ship is set to debut in 2020. Details of the vessel’s itineraries and on-sale date will be announced at a later time.
