Crystal Endeavor

Generous public spaces, world-class dining and amenities for adventurous and enriching pursuits

At 19,800 tons, the all-suite, purpose-built polar class yacht Crystal Endeavor will be the largest, most spacious expedition yacht in the world when she arrives in 2020.

While the yacht itself will bear the standard of luxury for which Crystal is renowned, the spirit of adventure is what fuels the design of Crystal Endeavor.


“Crystal’s entrance into the expedition cruising industry is a natural response to the demand from an increasing segment of travellers, craving more immersive and active experiences in lesser known destinations around the world,” says Crystal president and CEO, Tom Wolber.

“Our guests will enjoy a truly unforgettable adventure onboard Crystal Endeavor, without sacrificing the standard of excellence and luxury of the Crystal brand that they know and love.”

That standard includes restaurants and public spaces that guests have long enjoyed aboard Crystal’s ocean ships, as well as new spots specifically designed for expedition cruising.

Crystal Endeavor will remain true to the diverse menus and standard of world-class cuisine offered on all Crystal Ocean, Yacht and River vessels, with all-inclusive dining, fine wines and premium spirits offered throughout.

Specialty restaurants will include Prego,
which serves traditional Italian fare, and will also
 host Crystal’s signature “Vintage Room”
 winemaker dinners; and Umi Uma, serving
signature sushi and specialties from Master Chef
 Nobu Matsuhisa.

Additionally, the yacht will 
feature the elegant main dining venue, Waterside;
 the Asian-inspired Silk Kitchen & Bar, located in the two-storey solarium during the evenings; and the European-inspired Bistro Café, which will offer full service breakfast and lunch.

The elegant Palm Court – a favourite hub for afternoon tea, cocktails, dancing and floor-to-ceiling views aboard Crystal’s ocean and river ships – will be on board Crystal Endeavor for evening entertainment, as well as enrichment presentations and classes.

Other favoured social spaces will be the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge; Crystal Cove, the heart of the ship where guests will gather for varied guest speakers, pre-dinner cocktails and late-night entertainment; and the only casino on an expedition yacht.

Enrichment venues will include the Captain’s Lounge, the Expedition Lounge, the Helicopter Lounge and the Library. The Promenade will stretch from Crystal Cove to Waterside and be a more intimate space for guests to enjoy cocktails, conversation and spectacular views.

Additionally, Crystal’s onboard boutiques, Apropos and Facets, will offer designer and fine jewellery shopping.

Wellness options will include a fully-equipped fitness centre and the dedicated Crystal Life Spa & Crystal Life Salon will feature three treatment rooms, separate men’s and women’s steam and sauna facilities, a relaxation room and full-service salon services.

The two-storey solarium pool deck will be enclosed under a glass-domed roof. Additionally, expansive mud rooms are designed to accommodate preparation for the day’s adventures and offer cleaning of boots and equipment upon guests’ return from a day exploring ashore.
