The two-ship luxury operator says the 1,070-passenger Crystal Serenity will sail its first complete circumnavigation in early 2015.

The Crystal Serenity‘s route on the voyage will take it westward through the Panama Canal to South America’s west coast before heading across the Pacific to New Zealand and Australia. From there, the ship will continue westward to the southern tip of Africa before heading to the east coast of South America and back to Miami.
