There are many luxury cruise itineraries available, allowing you to visit the farthest reaches of the north. A standard cruise to the Arctic lasts around twelve days, commonly leaving via Oslo. The Svalbard region is on most of the shorter, more concentrated itineraries, but other possibilities might include a longer cruise to Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and Canada.
Our featured, ice-strengthened expedition vessels, Silversea’s Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud Expedition and Scenic’s latest addition, Scenic Eclipse, are the ultimate way to visit the Arctic in unprecedented comfort, safety and style.
These three stunning luxury ships boast world-class cuisine, all-suite accommodation and stylish public spaces with swimming pools and a spa. Each vessel accommodates between only 100 and 228 passengers, to ensure an intimate guest experience.
Your expedition into this enchanting wilderness is complemented by Discovery and Expedition Leaders on the ships, who are experts in their fields, plus zodiac and kayak excursions, small-group shore landings, hiking and snowshoeing, as well as the chance to dip beneath the waves as part of an unforgettable Arctic submarine tour on board Scenic Eclipse.
