The latest Crystal Cruises’ adventure ship Crystal Endeavor has been rolled out of a German shipyard eight months before it is due to enter service.
The 200-passenger polar class expedition vessel touched water for the first time at the MV Werften yard in Stralsund.
The all-suite ship is due to set off on its first cruise from Tokyo on August 10, 2020.
Crystal Endeavor will feature helicopter pads and a submarine capable of carrying seven passengers 980ft underwater.
Other facilities include chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Umi Uma & Sushi Bar; a spa and fitness centre; mud rooms and a helicopter lounge.
Itineraries are available until early 2023 range from the Arctic, Antarctica and Australia to Africa, Europe and Indonesia.
Crystal Cruises’ president and chief executive Tom Wolber said: “Each milestone marked in the journey to introducing Crystal Endeavor to the world becomes more thrilling, as we know that the most adventurous luxury travellers are eagerly awaiting the unforgettable experiences that lie ahead, just as we are.
