Famed Oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau To Join Crystal Sailings

Jean-Michel Cousteau – first son of ocean pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau – to join Crystal Serenity this spring and autumn, as well as an expedition sailing on Crystal Esprit.

Aboard three luxury Crystal Cruises voyages throughout the wildlife rich waters of the world, one of the foremost living oceanographic experts will share tales from his lifetime of underwater exploration. While onboard, Cousteau will enlighten guests with expertise gained from decades as a leading explorer and conservationist, working in defense of the planet’s oceans.

The voyages set to feature Cousteau’s intriguing presentations are, fittingly, geographically diverse.

Crystal Serenity’s 24th May ‘Hawaiian Havens’ sails the warmer regions of the Pacific Ocean; the 27th October ‘Amazon Escape’ explores the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean and Old Bahama Channel; while Crystal Esprit’s 19th November West Indies voyage sails round-trip from Marigot Bay through the deep Caribbean.

Hawaiian Havens – Departing Los Angeles on May 24, 2017, for 16-nights.

Amazon Escape – Departing Fort Lauderdale on October 27, 2017 for 24-nights.

Luxury West Indies – This is an EXCLUSIVE package including a pre-cruise hotel stay in Antigua before flying to St Maarten to join Crystal Esprit. Flights leave the UK on November 14, 2017, but this cruise can also be enjoyed without the hotel options from November 19, 2017.

In addition to lectures tailored to the region of each sailing, Cousteau will offer interactive and engaging presentations discussing his father’s legend and his own legacy, as well as insights into ocean life that most captivate him, including the delicate balance of the roles of orcas and sharks. Guests will learn from Cousteau the connection between the oceans and everything else on the planet, and enjoy a glimpse of his newest film, which features images captured by Cousteau for the first time in his 60+ years of diving. Cousteau, who is the founder of the Ocean Futures Society, will also enlighten travellers about his extensive environmental and conservation efforts.
