The first vessel to resume service for the brand, the Explorer Dream, had started to offer Taiwan island-hopping itineraries in July 2020. According to Dream’s website, after a service suspension, the sailings are now set to resume on August 18, 2021.

Recently delivered, the new Crystal Endeavor is also operating. Crystal’s first expedition vessel entered service in Iceland on July 17.

Star Cruises
