In the spirit of those who have gone before, passengers aboard Crystal Serenity will have an opportunity, weather permitting, to experience "expedition days." During these unscheduled events, guests can participate in a number of activities, including bay kayaking, polar bear sightings, guided tundra hikes and more. To help facilitate these outings, a 14-member team of expedition professionals is slated to join the crew. And rest assured, their knowledge and experience will help navigate through difficult terrain, intense weather and wild animals.
On August 21, passengers will get to explore Nome, a frontier-like town located on the Seward Peninsula in Alaska. This small region has hosted two famed races: the Gold Rush that began in 1898 and the annual, 1,049-mile sled dog race. Discover Inupiaq Eskimo crafts at local shops or locate the country’s tundra wildlife while there.
