  1. A photographic preview of Endeavor‘s 2022 expeditions https://blog.crystalcruises.com/facts-photos-crystal-endeavor-2022-expeditions/
  2. As Larry says the obstructions are truly minimal on Serenity and they really aren’t obstructions you see looking out your window and in some cases you need to look downwards to see the obstruction
  3. Crystal have issued this press release to confirm availability for booking CRYSTAL ENDEAVOR’S 2022 EXPEDITION COLLECTION NOW AVAILABLE FOR BOOKING New destinations and rarely visited locales highlight the roster of 30 voyages MIAMI, November 13, 2019 – Travelers seeking bold adventurous journeys, immersive cultural connections and unexpected discoveries now have more options than ever at their fingertips, as Crystal Expedition Cruises opens the books for Crystal Endeavor’s 2022 and January 2023 itineraries. Luxury voyages of nine to 19 nights will take discerning guests to the High Arctic and Antarctica, Svalbard, Iceland, Greenland, the Falkland Islands, and Chilean fjords and glaciers on designated “Remote Expeditions”, while “Cultural Discovery” and “Destination Exploration” sailings sail to Western Europe, the British Isles, Africa’s west coast, the Caribbean and Panama Canal. “Crystal Endeavor’s 2022 and early 2023 voyages focus heavily on the expedition nature of Crystal Expedition Cruises, with voyages to some remote locales that have rarely seen human explorers,” said Mark Spillane, director of marketing and sales for Crystal Expedition Cruises. “These remarkable journeys, along with those that offer in-depth perspectives of local cultures and the natural wonders of the destinations, are exactly what travelers continue to tell us they want most – all while exploring the world in the unwavering luxury that they expect from Crystal.” Among the highlights of the new roster for Crystal Endeavor are a collection of voyages into the High Arctic, Norway, Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland; new “river explorations” in Europe, along the Guadalquivir and the Loire rivers into Seville and Nantes, respectively; new Africa voyages sailing along the Ivory and Gold coasts and exploring Ghana, Angola, Sierra Leone and more; new routes along South America’s west coast, as well as Chile’s famous fjords and Lake Region and Patagonia; and nine voyages to Antarctica with focuses in the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. Crystal Endeavor’s 2022 collection of all-inclusive itineraries is now available for booking, with fares beginning at $6,299 per person. The German-built, 20,000-GRT, all-suite Polar Class-6 expedition yacht will accommodate just 200 guests with elegantly casual, expansive public spaces; all-suite, butler-serviced guest rooms; Michelin-inspired dining options including Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma & Sushi Bar; full-service Crystal Life Salon & Spa and state-of-the-art Fitness Center. Expedition-specific amenities and spaces will enhance guests’ experience, including designated “mud rooms” and helicopter lounge.
  4. There are a number of printed newspapers (I can’t recall if both of the ones you mention are included or not) available to read in the Library for free
  5. Congratulations - so how does it take 4 tie breakers to decide - usually those questions are next to impossible to answer and it goes to the closest answer eg how many windows in the Empire State Building or How many miles to the Sun etc. Are the Entertainment team staff still running trivia? BTW - those same caps were the ones they gave segmenters on the WC 2019 - good to see actual prizes rather than discount vouchers - maybe this will be a permanent change?
  6. Remember to turn roaming off or turn Flight mode on when at sea - I don’t believe TMobiles international roaming covers you whilst at sea and operating on networks like Cellular at Sea (you would need to confirm that though as things might have changed)
  7. Supposedly not long to wait now - and I’d expect details at that time through your TA I have recently seen one case of a detailed itinerary (and booking being made) for an August 2022 Endeavor itinerary - but that was an exception. Boy those Endeavor cruises are not cheap! But I would expect the detailed itineraries to be available on the release date
  8. They’ve chosen them - T Mobile - they have an international roaming plan but the question is will there be hardware limits because of their iPhone handset model. The other issue may be what carriers networks TMobile allow roaming onto. This isn’t a cost issue it’s a technical coverage issue
  9. The issue will be what bands your iPhone model has versus the frequency bands the carriers use here There will almost certainly be some that are aligned however you may find you don’t get the best coverage or speeds - but they should be more than adequate
  10. Hopefully you have travel insurance to cover this situation I hope your property and friends and family are ok
  11. Oh yes please do stop in Lisbon tomorrow - our friends boarding there would be most disappointed to miss the crossing 🥺
  12. I m afraid it’s really the only way to get the answer I look forward to meeting you at the Meet and Mingle on this leg as we head to Auckland
  13. I didn’t sit behind a pillar during a performance - I did want to see the shows however here’s a couple of pictures of the theatre on Seabourn Encore - as can be seen there are many seats which have their views blocked by the pillars Why would any cruise line build a ship like that and then put chairs behind the pillars?
  14. Only Crystal can answer this one - you or your TA need to ask Crystal and confirm what is possible for a late embarkation as it may involve the local authorities
  15. Clue please - it’s the last word I’m struggling with... So you’ve been tempted by the exploits of passengers on one of those mega ships you were docked with last week? I hear there was a bit of “full contact yoga” happening on one of the balconies!
