Crystal Endeavour is leading the way for the next generation of expedition sustainability. Some of their fleet-wide measures include:

  • Reduction in the use of plastics onboard all ships
  • Treatment of wastewater to ensure it is non-polluting
  • Considerate and safe disposal of hazardous waste
  • Increased recycling of waste materials onboard
  • Improved fuel consumption
  • Air quality protection by not using incinerators in port and ensuring engine load is optimised therefore not emitting excess smoke. Oil burning equipment is also closely maintained to maximise efficiency and minimise emissions

Crystal works in line not only with the legal regulations within the country of registry, but also within those of all its destination countries. Furthermore, as part of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), there are even stricter guidelines in place to promote more environmentally-friendly in its member cruise lines.

From environmentally friendly lubricants used on thrusters and a diesel electric power plant and shore power connectivity to offshore dynamic positioning capabilities utilizing GPS and thrusters to avoid dropping anchor in delicate areas, some of the Endeavour’s most important features are not visible yet hugely impactful.

Crystal Cruises has also pledged to significantly minimise the use of plastics on board, use more efficient fixtures, reusing towels and reducing waste water by up to 650,000 gallons per year just from laundry alone.

Crystal is also partnered with Orca, a leading marine conservation organisation dedicated to the protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises. Crystal passes passes on data collected on expeditions around the globe to support the Orca OceanWatch programme as much as possible.
