Northwest Passage cruise sails again

Luxury cruise ship offers icy experiences for the wealthy
Luxury cruise ship Crystal Serenity will be repeating its 2016 transit of the Northwest Passage this summer, sailing from Alaska to New York via Greenland.
Crystal Cruises made history last summer when Serenity, which has capacity for 1,700 passengers and crew, became the biggest passenger vessel to sail the Canadian Arctic waterway.
The 32-day cruise departs Seward, Alaska on August 15, giving passengers “unprecedented adventures and unsurpassed luxury” and the chance to “immerse themselves in the nuances of the local communities and breath-taking nature and terrain of the region”. Fares start at $21,855.
Around 100 activities include scuba-diving, an “overland adventure” to Grise Fjord, fly fishing and golf. There will also be “unplanned adventures” like landing boats on glaciers. As was the case last year, ice pilots will be on the bridge and an ice-breaking support vessel will accompany the cruise ship.
