The Crystal Serenity ocean liner set sail on its landmark voyage through the Northwest Passage. The 32-day trip luxury cruise departed from Anchorage, traveling north through the Bering Strait and across the Canadian Arctic, making stops in Greenland and the northeastern United States before docking in New York City. The 253-metre Crystal Serenity is the largest ship ever to navigate the Northwest Passage. It carries more than 1,000 passengers and 600 crew.
Bon voyage via the Northwest Territories and Nunavut
Ulukhaktok, Northwest Territories, was the first Canadian stop on the Crystal Serenity cruise ship’s inaugural voyage through the Northwest Passage. The ship also stopped in two Nunavut communities: Cambridge Bay and Pond Inlet.
