“The sleek, stylish and stable design of ‘Le Boreal’ makes a polar voyage much more appealing to those who might not have considered such a demanding journey before,” explains Bob Simpson, Vice President Product Planning and Business Development at Abercrombie & Kent USA, LLC. “Changing weather conditions have opened up areas that few visitors have ever seen.”

Shore excursions in the high Arctic are designed to educate and inspire, with a carefully-selected team of leading naturalists, geologists, historians, marine biologists, ornithologists and photographers.

With a guide-to-passenger ratio of 1:12, A&K guests can expect personalized attention.

The elegant guest quarters aboard MV ‘Le Boreal’ are among the most spacious and comfortable on any Arctic adventure cruise, with a choice of bedding configurations, including two-room, two-bath suites to accommodate families. Private balconies in every cabin allow guests to appreciate the wildlife and midnight sun at any hour.  Common areas invite casual conversation with fellow passengers and expedition staff members, as well as space for private reflection in quiet corners.

For those concerned with the safety issues (and environment concerns) with a cruise like can take look at the latest blog entry at the Prow’s Edge Cruise Magazine Blog. The MV ‘Le Boreal’ is actually Cleanship Certified.

The most-inclusive way to experience the high Arctic, Abercrombie & Kent’s An Arctic Cruise Adventure: Polar Bear Country (July 15-30, 2013) includes pre-cruise lodging in Oslo, a charter flight to Longyearbyen, on-board lectures, twice-daily shore and zodiac excursions, most drinks, and crew and staff gratuities.  16 days from $11,995 per person, double occupancy.
