Crystal Cruises charts a rare Alaska return in 2022

Crystal Serenity in Glacier Bay
Crystal Cruises marks its return to Alaska after three years with a series of five seven- to 11-night voyages in 2022 aboard Crystal Serenity.

Round-trip and one-way cruises will operate from Whittier and Vancouver, BC.

No future Alaska seasons scheduled

Crystal President Jack Anderson noted the 2022 season will be exclusive since the line does not have any voyages to the region scheduled beyond next year.

Sailings operate during the optimal late June to August season and more than 100 landside experiences will be available.

Guest lecturers

Guest lecturers include Kurt Dunbar, a longtime Alaska resident who has shared his vast knowledge for the past 20 years with cruisers and university students. Sample lectures will include 'Fire and Ice: The Geology of Alaska,' focusing primarily on glaciers; 'Fur and Feathers,' highlighting native land mammals and birds; and 'The First Alaskans,' an overview of native cultures.

A favorite guest on Crystal’s 'Storytellers' podcast series, Rob Caskie will share his personal Alaska experiences with memorable conversations such as 'The Renowned Alaska/Canada Highway,' an epic tale of human endeavor linking the continental US with Alaska and Russia across the Bering Strait, and 'Emblematic Wildlife,' detailing the region’s magnificent and varied creatures.
