You Are Not Alone

When Crystal Serenity sets off on its 32-day Northwest Passage voyage this August, it won’t be alone. The line announced today they have entered into a charter agreement with Tactical Marine Solutions of Victoria, Canada and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) headquartered in Cambridge, UK to have the icebreaker RRS Ernest Shackleton accompany the cruise ship for an added measure of safety.

The expedition voyage sails from Anchorage to New York on August 16.

Details appeared in the April 15 edition of Cruise News Daily.
