The six-star Crystal Serenity
completed its 32-night voyage along
the Northwest Passage this month, a groundbreaking journey through the
Arctic from Anchorage to New York. The 1,080-passenger vessel was the
first large luxury ship to sail the route.
More than three years in the planning, the itinerary covered nearly
7,300 nautical miles and navigated the remote, sparsely populated
terrain of Canada's Northwest Territories. Amid stunning landscapes of
glaciers and fjords, guests spotted polar bears and whales and visited
small Inuit communities.
Crystal donated to local causes in the ports of call, and it also
brought school supplies and set up "community visits" where guests could
meet the residents and purchase locally made arts and crafts. Adventures
off the ship -- like hikes, kayaking trips and explorations by Zodiac --
were aided by local Inuit guides who worked with the onboard expedition
The ship was accompanied during its northernmost leg by the RRS Ernest
Shackleton, which served as a first response vessel for potential
emergencies and also provided ice-breaking capabilities and two
helicopters for special excursions. The Crystal Serenity, outfitted with
ice navigation equipment, carried two Canadian ice pilots.
The Crystal Serenity will return to the Northwest Passage next year,
departing from Anchorage on August 15.
Starting in November, Celebrity
will participate in Dine Aware, a
program for the food and beverage industry that's designed to improve
communication about food allergies and intolerance. It's the first
cruise line to take part in Dine Aware, with the hope that it will
improve the onboard dining experience for guests with special dietary
