Famed Oceanographer to Join Crystal 2018 Sailings

Oceanographic expert Jean-Michel Cousteau will share tales from his lifetime of underwater exploration on three Crystal voyages this spring, autumn and winter joining one sailing each aboard Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Esprit

While on board, Cousteau will share tales and experiences from his lifetime of exploring and documenting the world’s oceans, as well as his ongoing work to continue the legacy of his famous father, Jacques-Yves Cousteau.

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

  • March 12, 2018: Crystal Serenity’s ‘Far East Vistas’ voyage from Manila to Singapore.
  • November 8, 2018: Crystal Symphony’s ‘Amazon Discovery’ voyage round trip from Fort Lauderdale
  • December 9, 2018: Crystal Esprit’s ‘West Indies Yachting Explorer’ voyage round trip from Marigot, St Martin through the deep Caribbean

“We are pleased to welcome Jean-Michel back on board this year to share his distinct perspectives on the wildlife and future of the oceans,” says Keith Cox, Vice President of Entertainment. “Our guests relish the opportunity to learn from leading experts as they explore the world, and Jean-Michel is the foremost authority on the very oceans they sail, as he’s dedicated his life to conserving them.”

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 captivates him, including the delicate balance of the roles of orcas and sharks. Cousteau, who is the founder of the Ocean Futures Society, will also share with travellers his conservation efforts.
