Crystal hit it out of the ballpark with the Endeavor. I believe she is currently the most beautiful expedition ship, reminiscent of Crystal’s Elegant river ships, offering all the amenities we adore, including Umi Uma, the Asian Restaurant, Prego for Italian specialties, and the much-loved Vintage Room.
Like other expedition ships, the Endeavor offers cozy enclosed spaces; however, I found the light-filled public rooms the most striking. I appreciated having these airy spaces. The floor-to-ceiling windows give you the impression that the ship is bigger than it is.
The suites are generous in size, very comfortable, and well designed. Each suite features high-tech amenities and a private verandah to admire the picturesque views. Crystal’s famed butlers look after every guest and bend over backward to please. The Endeavor is a true Crystal ship with all the features we have come to love.
The well-designed mudrooms on the lower decks will enable guests to experience speedy disembarkation in the Zodiacs to go and explore. It was exciting to see the submarine in action. We cannot wait for the helicopter to arrive.
I loved being able to experience a ride on the Endeavor’s Zodiacs. They are by far the nicest Zodiacs I have encountered in my years of expedition cruising. They took us to a cute island near Bimini, where we could snorkel with the rays and nurse sharks. We also had an opportunity to kayak, giving us the perfect little taste of the expedition experience.
Let me not forget the amazing Expedition Team. With Crystal, you have access to incredibly knowledgeable guides who share their insight with guests daily when traveling to some of the most remote places in the world. This enhanced education and instruction adds to the overall experience of the expedition.
