Crystal Endeavor will operate eight voyages in its inaugural Antarctica season
Crystal Expedition Cruises will provide included round-trip chartered flights between Miami and Ushuaia, Argentina, as well as hotel nights in both cities for Crystal Endeavor’s inaugural Antarctica program.

The flights are nonstop.

Replaces previous Buenos Aires flights/stopover

These new arrangements replace the previous one-night pre-cruise hotel in Buenos Aires and round-trip charter flights between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia.

Crystal Endeavor will operate eight voyages of 11 nights to 19 nights from Ushuaia, November through February. 

'Peace of mind is the greatest luxury especially when traveling to the farthest reaches of the globe and Crystal Endeavor’s smooth, powerful ride and agile handling will deliver that in unpredictable weather conditions or remote destinations,' Crystal President Jack Anderson said.

'Similarly, providing our guests chartered, nonstop air directly from the United States to the port of embarkation in Ushuaia ensures a worry-free and effortless vacation experience with the assurance that all logistics and details have been expertly handled and arranged, as well as the added peace of mind of knowing that all age-eligible guests aboard our chartered flights have been fully vaccinated.'

Luxury hotels in Ushuaia, Miami 

The trips include pre-cruise luxury hotel accommodations in Ushuaia and a post-flight luxury hotel accommodation upon return to Miami.

All-inclusive fares start at $9,949 per person including up to $9,200 in 'Book Now Savings' per suite when booked by Nov. 3, as well as a $1,000 on-board spending credit per person. Deposits are reduced from 25% to 15%, with relaxed final payment due 60 days prior to first date of service for 2021 through March 2022 voyages.

Falklands, South Georgia, South Africa finale

Crystal Endeavor’s inaugural Antarctic season concludes with 'Falkland Islands & South Georgia to South Africa,' a 19-night trans-Atlantic expedition from Ushuaia to Cape Town, South Africa, featuring incredible wildlife and an extremely rare three-day visit to the Tristan da Cunha archipelago.
