Crystal Endeavor’s debut moved back three months

Crystal Expedition Cruises postponed the launch of its first ship, the Crystal Endeavor.

Citing the temporary closure of MV Werften shipbuilding facilities in Germany due to the Covid-19 pandemic and uncertainty regarding when production will resume, Crystal delayed the ship’s previously planned August launch until Nov. 14.

Crystal canceled all scheduled Endeavor cruises through Oct. 31. The Endeavor’s maiden voyage will now be the “Tasmania & Fjords of New Zealand” 14-day cruise. 

The company is reaching out to passengers and travel advisors about rebooking options.
