Poseidon Expeditions Announces Summer 2021 Dates and Rates For Cruising to North Pole
By: Poseidon Expeditions
Three departures are scheduled in July and August 2021 aboard the 128-passenger 50 Years of Victory, a nuclear-powered icebreaker. This icebreaker was purpose-built to pilot scientific and cargo ships to hard-to-reach areas of the Arctic and along the Northeast Passage.
"No other ice-class vessel used for commercial passenger travel has the proven track record, the reliability and sheer power to muscle its way to this unique destination. Where the frozen sea blocks the way for other ice-class expedition ships, the adventure is just beginning aboard 50 Years of Victory (https://poseidonexpeditions.com/
Travel to 90º north latitude and the North Pole in 2021 will be on the following dates: July 10-22, July 21-Aug. 2, and Aug. 1-13. Rates for these departures will mirror those for the summer of 2020. Early Bird discounted rates (for bookings confirmed before Oct. 31, 2020) start at $29,445 per person with the discount. In addition, Poseidon announced that gratuities for the crew and expedition team will now be included in the 2021 rates.
The 13-day program includes a full day of activities on the ice at the North Pole. After carefully navigating to 90º North, the crew ceremoniously drops the anchor on a sturdy stretch of ice so that guests may disembark onto the frozen sea. Part of the fun is joining hands with fellow passengers and literally walking around the world during a unique International Round Dance.
Later in the adventure come Zodiac landings on Franz Josef Land, an infrequently visited archipelago of 192 islands rich in polar wildlife and stark landscapes in the Russian High Arctic. The program includes one night pre-cruise hotel accommodations in Murmansk and all transfers to/from the airport and ship.
