Crystal Cruises sends Guests into Space
Crystal Cruises guests can train like modern Russian cosmonauts on some of the largest, most advanced space equipment in the world, and will experience extreme G forces and weightlessness in the world's largest hydrospace laboratory. These new tours are part of the lines Crystal Adventures, and are available from St. Petersburg on five Crystal Symphony summer Baltic voyages.
The four tours are:-
“Centrifuge G-Force Experience” gives participants the experience of simulated G-forces at blast off, flight in orbit and spacecraft descent on a 300-ton centrifuge.
“Zero Gravity Weightlessness Adventure” gives guests a ride aboard the world's largest parabola aircraft to experience the absence of gravity. Flying in a steep parabola formation from as high as 20,000 feet, participants take flight at least 10 times during this adventure.
“Russia's Quest Beyond the Earth” gives guests a chance to delve into the behind-the-scenes highlights of cosmonaut training and Russian space travel from the 1950s and beyond.
“Hydrospace: The Final Challenge” allows guests the chance to install a space antenna on a replica of the International Space Station while wearing an authentic space suit and submerged in 54,000 square feet of water.
The new shore excursions include flights to Moscow, overnight hotel accommodations and a full-day Moscow city tour, plus the Cosmonaut experience. To book one of Crystal Cruises Baltic voyages, call White Star Cruises on 0800 6123 354
