CRYSTAL ENDEAVOR ROLLED OUT AT MV WERFTEN IN STRALSUND, GERMANY

 

Just-released video gives viewers the latest look of the world’s most spacious luxury expedition ship

 

MIAMI, December 23, 2019 – On Saturday, December 21st, Crystal Endeavor rolled out of MV Werften in Stralsund, Germany touching water for the first time in the most recent milestone for the polar class expedition vessel. Video footage from the shipyard gives viewers a close-up look of the roll-out process and aerial views of the ship, including its expansive deck space and helicopter pads. The latest addition to the Crystal fleet, the German-built Crystal Endeavor will embark on her maiden journey from Tokyo on August 10, 2020.

 

“Each milestone marked in the journey to introducing Crystal Endeavor to the world becomes more thrilling, as we know that the most adventurous luxury travelers are eagerly awaiting the unforgettable experiences that lie ahead, just as we are,” said Crystal’s president and CEO, Tom Wolber. “The team at MV WERFTEN has beautifully brought our vision into reality and it is a wonderful moment to see this groundbreaking ship on the water.”

 

The 20,000-GRT PC-6 expedition ship will accommodate just 200 guests with elegantly casual, generous public spaces designed to showcase the outside scenery; all-suite, all-verandah, butler-serviced guest rooms; Michelin-inspired dining options with six dining venues including Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma & Sushi Bar; full-service Crystal Life Salon & Spa and a state-of-the-art Fitness Center. Expedition-specific amenities and spaces will enhance guests’ experience, including enrichment areas, designated mud rooms and a helicopter lounge. A seven-guest submersible will also be on board, allowing for deep-water explorations up to 980 feet in select areas of the world.

Crystal Endeavor’s worldwide itineraries through early 2023 are now available for booking, comprising three dedicated categories of exploration: Remote Expedition, visiting some of the most far-flung destinations and uninhabited locales; Cultural Discovery, distinguished by an emphasis on the region and its people; and Destination Exploration, highlighting the natural wonders and beauty of the destinations. Regions explored range from the High Arctic, Antarctica, Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland to the tropics of Bora Bora and Indonesia, Africa’s Ivory Coast, the Chilean Fjords and Patagonia, Western Europe, the Great Barrier Reef and New Zealand’s Sub-Antarctic Islands. On every itinerary, a team of specialized expedition guides will highlight the journeys with expertise and insights into local landscapes, culture and history.

Thanks Stickman1990.  This ship looks beautiful.  I really, really, would like to cruise on Endeavor but it may be a choice of once on there or a couple cruises on Symphony or Serenity.  Hard decision that I don't have to make......yet!

I know that ships are usually referred to as "she," but this one is obviously a male.

I did! I couldn't help but notice.
 
Maybe instead of a Godmother, the ship should have a mohel.

Some photos of Endeavor after the float out

 

She looks good but I have to say I prefer the lines of the Scenic Eclipse better at this stage

My eye keeps going to the tree on the bow.  I can't look at the profile long enough to form an actual opinion.  haha

 Agree that the Eclipse looks a just bit sleeker than Endeavour. However, I am not mad on the dark colour palate of the Eclipse’s interior, it look like a floating nightclub. There are a few good Youtube video reviews out there.
