Vilkitsky is a polar explorer

Boris Andreyevich Vilkitsky (22 March (3 April N.S.) 1885 – 6 March 1961) was a Russian hydrographer and surveyor. He was the son of Andrey Ippolitovich Vilkitsky.
Vilkitsky graduated from the Naval Academy in Saint Petersburg in 1908. He participated in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–1905. In 1913—1915 he led the Arctic hydrographic expedition on the ships "Taimyr" and "Vaigach" with the purpose of further exploration of the Northern Sea Route.
In 1913, Vilkitsky's expedition discovered islands “Emperor Nicholas II Land” —later renamed 'Severnaya Zemlya', perhaps one of the most important Russian discoveries in the Arctic at the time. Other discoveries were an island that now bears his name (Vilkitsky Island), as well as the islands of Maly Taymyr and neighboring Starokadomsky. In 1914—1915, Vilkitsky's expedition made the first through voyage from Vladivostok to Arkhangelsk, discovered Novopashenniy Island (now Zhokhov Island), and described the eastern coastline of the territory he named 'Emperor Nicholas II Land'. He was awarded the prestigious Constantine Medal by the Russian Geographical Society for his endeavours. In 1918, Vilkitsky was appointed head of the first Soviet hydrographic expedition, which never took place due to its seizure by the interventionists in Arkhangelsk. In 1920, Vilkitsky emigrated to Britain. In 1923 and 1924, Vilkitsky led commercial expeditions in the Kara Sea at the invitation of the Soviet foreign trade organizations. Later in his life, Vilkitsky was employed as a hydrographer in the Belgian Congo. Boris Vilkitsky died in Brussels in 1961. Many geographical features in Russia bear Vilkitsky's name: The most well-known one is Vilkitsky Strait, the strait between Severnaya Zemlya and Taimyr Peninsula, an important landmark of the Northern Sea Route. Zaliv Vil'kitskogo, a bay in the NW shores of Novaya Zemlya. Vilkitsky Island in the Kara Sea. The Vilkitsky Islands, a division of the Nordenskjold Archipelago. The Vilkitsky Islands subgroup of the Komsomolskaya Pravda Islands in the Laptev sea off the eastern shores of the Taymyr Peninsula. Vilkitsky Island in the De Long Group in the Eastern Siberian Sea

Fyodor Litke and his “New Earth”

30th June, 1824 the brig "New Earth" sailed off to the shores of the Island Novaya Zemlya under the direction of Fyodor Litke. In the period 1821-1824 Litke made four scientific expeditions to the New Earth, during which he mapped and described the coast of the archipelago, studied the fairway of the White Sea. Fyodor Litke - Russian explorer, geographer and hydrographer, Arctic explorer, Admiral of the Russian Fleet. In 1817 20-year-old boy was invited to sail around the world on the sloop "Kamchatka" under the leadership of famous at that Vasily Golovin. Route can be traced on a geographic map: sloop rounded Cape Horn, crossed the Pacific, reached Kamchatka, visited Hawaii, Mariana and the Moluccas, passed the Indian Ocean, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, went to the island of St. Helena, where Napoleon was serving the sentence, returned to Kronstadt. After a two-year voyage Litke returned back as a mature lieutenant who could make decisions in difficult moments. On the recommendation of Golovnin Litke was appointed as a leader of the expedition to Novaya Zemlya. It is known that in the early XIX century this archipelago was studied sufficiently. In fact, since the time of Barents, who came here in 1594 and gathered extensive cartographic material to travel of Rozmyslova in 1768 nothing was done. Thus, without major research it was impossible to make a reliable map of Novaya Zemlya.Litke made four expeditions, during which drew a map of the coast of Novaya Zemlya, described many places on the coast of the White Sea, explored dangerous shoals and fairway depth of the sea. In 1828 Litke published a book, in which he described all four expeditions 1821-1824. This work brought Litke recognition and fame in the scientific world. Maps of Litke were used by polar sailors for more than 100 years. Work of Moses, Pakhtusova and Tsivolki only supplemented them in detail. Litke’s research has showed how few people knew about White Sea. At the request of Litke was assembled a team led by Reynard to explore the White Sea. Fyodor Litke presented geography Bonin Islands Shima, Mariana and Caroline Archipelago, the Bering Sea, Kamchatka and Novaya Zemlya. Litke held numerous hydrographic and geographic research, the exact magnetic, gravimetric and astronomical measurements and observations, cartographic works, which brought him fame.

CROWN PRINCESS is a Grand-class cruise ship owned and operated by Princess Cruises. Her maiden voyage took place on June 14, 2006, departing Red Hook, Brooklyn (New York) for Grand Turk (Turks & Caicos), Ocho Rios (Jamaica), Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands), and Port Canaveral (Florida). As of 2015, the CROWN PRINCESS sails to Mexico for the Winter season, and Alaska for the Summer season. Like her sister ships EMERALD PRINCESS and RUBY PRINCESS her Skywalkers Night Club is built aft of the funnel rather than suspended over the stern. Her godmother is Martha Stewart.
Galveston
In December 2012, the CROWN PRINCESS made a transatlantic crossing from Venice to Galveston, TX where she stayed to run Caribbean itineraries from December 2012 to April 2013. When the ship arrived in Galveston on December 22, 2012, at least 102 passengers had contracted norovirus. The CROWN PRINCESS had previously been plagued by two separate outbreaks of norovirus in January/February 2012.
Listing incident
On July 18, 2006 at approximately 3:30 pm ET, one hour after departing her last port of call in Port Canaveral, the CROWN PRINCESS reported "listing" or making "heavy turns".The U.S. Coast Guard was contacted shortly after and crews arrived within minutes to assist the troubled vessel. The cruise ship was on its way home to New York City, and the decision was made to return to Port Canaveral due to what was initially thought to be a malfunction in the steering equipment which caused a severe tilting of the ship, and injuries. However, the NTSB found that the second officer, the senior watch officer on the bridge, disengaged the automatic steering mode of the vessel’s integrated navigation system after it put the ship into what the officer felt was an unusually hard turn to port and took manual control of the steering. The second officer turned the wheel first to port and then from port to starboard several times, eventually causing the vessel to list even more, to a maximum angle of about 24° to starboard. The severe listing tumbled passengers, crew members, pool water, and everything else not secured about the decks.[
Fourteen passengers and crew members were seriously injured, one suffering breathing difficulties after being hit in the chest by an airborne chair, and another 284 had minor injuries. Water from the four on-board pools poured into staircases and lift shafts. Most injuries were on the outdoor areas of Decks 15 and 16, where large beach chairs and tables hit and injured passengers. The other area that had many injured passengers was the balcony areas in the grand atrium. Many there were hit by falling objects and heavy marble tables. One woman who had an extended hospital stay was thrown against the glass wall on Deck 15 and covered by pool chairs and water from the pools themselves, being trapped underwater for several seconds. One passenger said "Afterward it was like a war zone with people walking around bleeding." and another added "All the windows were smashed. The top deck looked like a hurricane had hit it." No passengers or crew went overboard.
At 8:30 AM PT on July 19, Princess said that "approximately 240 passengers [were] treated onboard for various injuries such as abrasions, bruises and fractures, of which 94 were transferred to local hospitals ashore for evaluation and treatment"
The matter was referred to the National Transportation Safety Board and United States Coast Guard for investigation. After an internal review by Princess Cruises, its president Alan Buckelew publicly stated that "the incident was due to human error and the appropriate personnel changes have been made."
With approval from the Coast Guard and the Bermuda flag authorities, the vessel returned to service. A full refund was given to all passengers on the ill-fated cruise, and a 50% refund to passengers on the following cruise which was set to depart July 20 but instead departed from Brooklyn on July 22. Since then, CROWN PRINCESS has resumed her normal schedule.
Current/Future Cruises
CROWN PRINCESS until November 2012 was sailing the Mediterranean. In November 2012 the ship sailed to Galveston, Texas for the first time; marking the return of Princess to Galveston, where she sailed 7-Day western Caribbean cruises. In April 2013 she sailed to Southampton, where she sailed to northern Europe/the Mediterranean & the Canary Islands. Following that stint, CROWN PRINCESS will returned to the United States to Fort Lauderdale, Florida sailing alternating 7-Day eastern/southern Caribbean cruises to February 2014. On January 18, 2013 it was announced that CROWN PRINCESS will sail around South America. During that cruise Princess Cruises marked the first ever call in Ilhabela, Brazil. The southern Caribbean cruises from February 15, 2014 through April 26, 2014 were cancelled to allow for the South America cruise. Passengers who booked the cancelled voyages were notified and were assisted with finding alternate cruise options. After the South America cruise, she has been sailing to Mexico, Hawaii, and Pacific coastal cruises from Los Angeles, as well as Northbound and Southbound cruises from Vancouver and Whittier or Roundtrip Alaskan cruises from Seattle replacing the SAPPHIRE PRINCESS.
Starting in the 2016-17 season, she will become the largest Princess cruise ship ever to sail a full season to South America. At the end of this season, she will return to Fort Lauderdale to sail Caribbean cruises. This will mark the first time that the ship will be in the Caribbean since 2014.
2017 in Service same name and owner, Bermuda flag and registry, home port Hamilton.

CRYSTAL SERENITY is a cruise ship owned by Crystal Cruises. CRYSTAL SERENITY was built in 2003 by STX Europe in St. Nazaire. She operates together with her older fleetmate, CRYSTAL SYMPHONY, offering around the world voyages.
Concept and construction
By March 2000, Nippon Yusen Kaisha, parent company of Crystal, started negotiations with the French shipyard, Chantiers de l'Atlantique, for the construction of a third ship for Crystal Cruises. CRYSTAL SERENITY was then ordered in Chantiers de l'Atlantique (now STX France Cruise SA) on 7 November 2000, together with the signed Letter of Intent. On 12 December 2000, the official contract was then signed by NYK and Chantiers, for the construction of CRYSTAL SERENITY, with an expected delivery by June 2003, which was 6 months ahead of the original plans. By March 2001, Crystal Cruises unveiled the designs for the upcoming CRYSTAL SERENITY. The keel of CRYSTAL SERENITY was laid on 9 July 2002 in Chantiers de l'Atlantique in St. Nazaire, France. She was then christened on 3 July 2003, by Dame Julie Andrews, in Southampton, United Kingdom.
The lead designer of CRYSTAL SERENITY was Robert Tillberg of Tillberg Design. The other designers were the Italian Garroni Designers Company, Japanese Okada & Associates, American Nix Firestone Associates and II by IV design Associates, British Stephenjohn Design and was internally designed by Brennan Beer Gorman Monk (BBGM) of New York.
Ports of call
The maiden voyage of CRYSTAL SERENITY was on July 7, 2003, 4 days after her christening. It was a 14-day round-trip cruise, departing Southampton and cruising Northern Europe. During her inaugural season, CRYSTAL SERENITY held summer cruises in Europe, the Mediterranean Sea, and a transatlantic crossing. It was followed by two Caribbean/Panama Canal voyages and a combined Christmas/New Year Mexican Riviera cruise, round-trip from Los Angeles.
On January 14, 2004, she embarked on her first world cruise; a 106-day voyage departing Los Angeles, which concluded on May 5, in New York City.
CRYSTAL SERENITY was the largest cruise ship ever to navigate the Northwest Passage. Starting on 10 August 2016, the ship sailed from Vancouver to New York City with 1,700 passengers and crew, taking 28 days for the journey. In the Canadian Arctic it successfully made stops at Ulukhaktok and Cambridge Bay on Victoria Island, then passed up Franklin Strait and through the narrow Bellot Strait, adjacent to Zenith Point, the most northerly extension of North America. It explored Beechy Island where Franklin overwintered, followed by seldom visited fjords on the south side of Devon Island, plus fjords on Baffin Island and the village of Pond Inlet. On Sept. 5, 2016 it sailed for Disko Bay in Greenland. Her transit triggered comments on Canada's Arctic sovereignty.
2017 In service, same name and owner, Bahamas flag and registry.
