Q – We received your list of the cruise line’s planned new ship construction through 2025. The financial commitment, is just amazing, $478 Million for the Regent Splendor and twice that cost for a new Celebrity ship. We are wondering, with all this new tonnage coming along, which ship or ships have you the most excited in terms of vessels you will be most highly recommending to your clients?

A – That is a tough choice, but we would have to say the new Crystal Endeavor Expedition Yacht as well as Sea Dream’s new ship The Innovation.

The Crystal Endeavor, the world’s first purpose-built polar class mega-yacht is going to take expedition cruising to the next level with limitless possibilities for exploration in the Arctic, Antarctic and tropical regions. The ultramodern Crystal Endeavor is equipped with offshore dynamic positioning technology which automatically maintains the ship’s position using her own propellers and thrusters in order to avoid damage to underwater terrain and coral reefs. As a pioneer in ultimate luxury cruising, Crystal Cruises has once again surpassed other luxury cruise lines with Crystal Endeavor’s guest suites ranging from 400 to 3,928 square feet. She will be launched next year and will carry only 200 guests.
