Crystal Yacht Cruises is dedicated to providing a comfortable cruise experience for all its guests. Crystal Yacht Cruises does not discriminate against any person on the basis of disability and shall make every effort to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities. Guests acknowledge and understand that certain international, foreign or local safety requirements, standards, and/or applicable regulations involving design, construction or operation of the vessel, docks, gangways, anchorages or other facilities on or off the vessel may restrict access to facilities or activities for persons with mobility, communication or other impairments or special needs.
The staterooms and public spaces onboard the Crystal Yachts do not have any elevators and there is no elevator access to board the yachts as they were originally constructed. As a result, the Crystal Yachts may not be suitable for people relying solely on wheelchairs for transportation.
Going Ashore: Guests with disabilities should take note that not all ports are accessible. Gangways and port access vary greatly around the world and, in ports where the ship must anchor, guests are taken ashore tenders and/or ferries which may not be wheelchair accessible, as well as zodiacs, which are not wheelchair accessible.
In the unlikely event of an emergency, all guests must be fully mobile and able to exit the yachts safely. If guests are unable to meet the minimum safety requirements, even when provided with appropriate auxiliary aids and/or services, Crystal Yacht Cruises may find it necessary to ask the guest to make alternative travel arrangements.
Any child under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21. In addition, if the adult accompanying the child is not a parent or legal guardian, the "Parental Consent Guardianship Form" must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and received by Crystal Yacht Cruises no later than 30 days prior to sailing.
Guests age 11 and under at the time of sailing must be accompanied by an adult 21 or older in the same stateroom. Parents can have two related children booked in the same suite provided one of them is at least 16 years of age and travelling in an adjacent room to parent/s or legal guardian/s. Infants 6-24 months of age who will be utilising a crib may travel as a third berth in either a double or triple stateroom.
Crystal Cruises also reserves the right to restrict the number of passengers less than three (3) years of age aboard the yacht. Third berth child rate will apply if accompanied by two-full fare adults. Crystal Cruises is unable to accommodate children less than six (6) months of age as the yacht’s medical facilities are not designed to provide services to very young children. Children occupying a double suite will be charged the adult rate regardless of age.
Aboard Crystal Yacht ships, dress code aboard is Crystal Yacht Casual.
In line with a relaxed yachting lifestyle and casual onboard ambience, guests should wear comfortable, stylish yachting attire appropriate for your activity.

Complimentary internet and Wi-Fi access is available on board throughout all Crystal ships. Crystal encourages you to bring your own device/s with you to use during your voyage. Once on board, please connect to Crystal's complimentary Wi-Fi. Certain applications (apps) available on personal phones and other devices are satellite dependent and thus subject to interrupted availability. All onboard internet traffic travels from the ship to a satellite before returning back to earth to load web pages. While onboard there is no local high-speed internet provider as you would have at home, so intermittent delays and interruptions may occur.
It is not possible to connect your laptop through the shipboard phone system directly to any phone number ashore. In an effort to ensure that all guests are able to enjoy free Wi-Fi services for the duration on their cruise, applications like Skype and certain streaming services are currently not available/supported by the Ship's Wi-Fi service. If your laptop has wireless capacities, you should be able to access the internet aboard all Crystal ships.
Guests requiring ongoing medication, or having specific dietary needs, are advised to bring an ample supply of medication or dietary supplements with them in their carry-on luggage.
Requirements for inoculations often change. Crystal informs you of the health requirements; however, it is your responsibility to have all required vaccinations with a signed International Certificate of Vaccination. We recommend that you contact your personal physician with any health concerns. Failure to comply may result in refusal of passage by Customs and Immigration authorities.
International regulations require Crystal to maintain a list that identifies guests who may require special assistance in the unlikely event of an emergency. In addition, Crystal strives to make certain all guests receive the highest level of personalized service possible while on board. In order to meet both objectives, we ask for your cooperation in providing us with information regarding any special assistance that you may require. Guests who have existing medical conditions and who may require treatment by the ship’s medical staff (aboard Crystal Serenity or Crystal Symphony), or those who may require other types of special assistance due to a mobility disability, must contact Crystal Cruises Onboard Guest Services Department by fax 310-785-3975, email [email protected], or complete and return the Special Assistance form provided in the document package prior to departure.
Aboard Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Endeavor, Portable oxygen tanks and concentrators may be used on board. However, for safety reasons, Crystal’s Onboard Guest Services Department MUST be notified and a completed and approved Release and Indemnity Form received no later than 30 days in advance of the sailing. Liquid oxygen is prohibited on board due to safety concerns. A guest bringing his or her own oxygen equipment must make direct arrangements with an independent medical contractor who has agreed to undertake all required arrangements without involving the ship's onboard Medical Center and its personnel. For a list of approved vendors, please refer to the Onboard Accessibility Guide (available through our Onboard Guest Services Department). The oxygen-dependent guest should travel with a companion who is also completely familiar with the operation of the equipment. The guest is responsible to ensure that the equipment is off-loaded at the end of the cruise.
Oxygen-dependent guests are limited to those cruises on which they can be properly supported by equipment vendors and which have itineraries that will easily allow medical disembarkation if it should be required. The number of oxygen-dependent guests using portable equipment is very limited on any cruise. Requests for oxygen equipment for a specific cruise will be processed by Crystal Cruises’ Onboard Guest Services Department in the order of date received.
Please contact Crystal for use of the above equipment on Crystal River Cruises or Crystal Yacht Cruises voyages.

The PC-6 designated expedition ship boasts all-suite, butler-serviced accommodations, numerous Michelin-level dining venues, designated expedition areas including mud rooms and a helicopter lounge and a full serviced salon, spa and fitness centre. She is outfitted with a number of features that help her navigate the oceans and waterways of the world in the most responsible manner possible, including an electrically powered private submersible for deep-water explorations in select destinations.
Standard operating procedures aboard Crystal Endeavor revolve around a core philosophy of efficiency and sustainability that permeates every facet of the Crystal experience. Fleet-wide, Crystal aims to minimise its use of single-use plastics including a ban on plastic straws. Guests are provided with refillable drinking bottles to bring on their days' explorations. Eco-friendly water filtration systems replace bottled water in dining venues, with still and sparkling water created, filtered and bottled on board.
Operating according to the standards of The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from ships (MARPOL), Crystal Endeavor features several water treatment systems, including: a ballast treatment system, which treats water before it is discharged; a freshwater system that creates drinking water from seawater via osmosis; and a biological treatment system that cleans wastewater before it is discharged back into the sea, while sewage residues are discharged per international regulations ashore or into the sea.
Some of Crystal Endeavor's most significantly conscious features are found beneath the waterline. Environmentally friendly lubricants are used for bow thrusters and stabilisers and all underwater paint is free of tributyl tin (TBT). The ship features a propulsion system including two Azipod D units and a diesel electric power plant. The system is designed specifically for ice-going service to reduce ships' life cycle costs and help it operate at optimum efficiency. The ship is also outfitted with offshore dynamic positioning capabilities, enabling the ship to remain in one place utilising GPS and its thrusters, rather than dropping anchor, avoiding any potential damage to delicate reefs.
Crystal Endeavor is equipped with state-of-the-art underwater sonar technology from FarSounder, globally renowned experts in 3D FLS technology. The FarSounder 1000 series provides real-time 3D images of the terrain and activity along the ship's route up to 1,000 meters ahead of the vessel and to a depth of up to 50 meters, with a mapping range up to eight times the waters depth. Such vision enables Crystal Endeavor's captain and bridge officers to detect sea life far in advance and navigate appropriately. The technology also operates in shallower depths allowing safe navigation in unchartered waters, giving guests opportunities to experience rarely visited areas while leaving little to no trace on the environment.
Expeditions designed with Care
The shore-side destination experiences in store for Crystal Endeavor guests are created to showcase the cultural, natural and historical treasures of this world. With calls to some of the world's most remote locales, many of which are rarely visited by travellers, it is paramount that are explorations have minimal impact on the surrounding environments and benefit the communities visited wherever possible.
Crystal's destination experts and dedicated expedition guides have worked tirelessly to curate adventures that highlight UNESCO World Heritage Sites and other global monuments and landscapes in the most reverent fashion. From exploration of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef and the photographer's paradise of the Paramushir and Atlasova Islands in the Russian Far East to Japan's Yakushima World Heritage Conservation Center, adventures ashore inform and inspire travellers about the precious elements of the destinations and the importance of preserving them.
Crystal has been accepted as a new Provisional member into AECO (Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators), an international association for expedition cruise operators operating in the Arctic who support the organisation's vision of responsible, environmentally friendly and safe tourism in the Arctic. Crystal as also been longtime member of IAATO (International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators), a member organisation that advocates and promotes safe and environmentally responsible private-sector travel to the Antarctic.
