Cruise News - Abercrombie & Kent’s High Arctic Cruises

Windstar Cruises and new Shore excursionsMarch 18 - 2013 : Abercrombie & Kent Offers Two New High Arctic Cruises for 2014

An overwhelming demand to visit the remote High Arctic has persuaded Abercrombie & Kent to introduce two new Arctic cruising expeditions in 2014, each revealing the best of this stunning polar region at the top of the world from aboard the all-balcony 'Le Boreal.'

The two new options include Abercrombie & Kent's world-renowned Expedition Team searching for the elusive polar bear on Arctic Cruise Norway: Polar Bears & Midnight Sun, or striking out for the farthest reaches of this rarely seen land on Arctic Cruise Adventure: Norway, Greenland & Iceland.

The two new polar adventure cruises are:

Arctic Cruise Norway: Polar Bears & Midnight Sun (Jul 29 – Aug 9, 2014)
Home to the polar bear, walrus and reindeer the Arctic also reveals spectacular phenomena such as the midnight sun, occurring only in summer. Seek out these wonders on a journey from the northern shores of Norway to the Svalbard Archipelago and Spitsbergen, setting foot on the coastal city of Tromsø and the polar bear stomping grounds of Nordaustlandet. 12 days from $8,995 (when booked by September 30, 2013)

Arctic Cruise Adventure: Norway, Greenland & Iceland (Aug 7-21, 2014)
Stunning wildlife, geological features and history — take it all in on this comprehensive Arctic voyage from Norway and Spitsbergen to the region's most remote and magnificent islands. Discover polar bears in their natural habitat on the Svalbard archipelago; witness Kejser Franz Joseph Fjords and Scoresby Sound in Greenland; and explore one of Iceland's first villages (Grundarfjördur) followed by views of its extinct Snaefellsjokull volcano, setting of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.15 days from $11,995 (when booked by September 30, 2013).

“Even we were surprised at the immediate, enthusiastic response we received to announcing our first Arctic cruise onboard ‘Le Boreal,’ set to depart this summer,” explains Bob Simpson, Vice President Product Operations and Small Ships at Abercrombie & Kent USA, LLC. “The sleek and stylish design of ‘Le Boreal’ makes an Arctic voyage much more appealing to those who might not have considered such a demanding journey before.”
