Average time to visit

Arctic cruising has a very specific season due to the sea ice; all expedition cruises depart from July through to September and therefore do not sail in the winter months from November through to June. Temperatures are of the extremes and can be largely variable depending on conditions; the Arctic Circle can see summer temperatures vary between -10°c and 10°c. Southern Greenland and the coast of Labrador in Canada can peak at 16°c whereas deep in the Northwest passage thermometers rise no higher than 5°c.

The ship itself is extremely spacious and offers all-suite accommodation. All of the suites boast large picture windows so guests can always be sure to enjoy the best views whether in their cabin, in the restaurants or in the observation lounge.

For those who need some time at leisure, there are plenty of options on board, with facilities including a pool, Jacuzzi, fitness centre, beauty salon and spa.

Marvel at the icebergs and look out for wildlife who call these icy waters their home as you explore on a series of Zodiac excursions, accompanied by highly specialised guides to ensure you get the most out of your experience. You will have opportunities to head on shore to get up close to some of the wildlife and there will also be optional educational lectures on board in the evenings to give a more in-depth insight into the geography and biology of the region.
