A 15-Day Expedition Cruise to the North Pole

DETROIT (Feb. 17, 2010) – For those looking for adventure, exploration and a bird’s eye view of the Top of the World, a 15-day Expedition Cruise to the North Pole aboard the nuclear-powered Russian icebreaker “50 Years of Victory” is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The 50 Years of Victory is the world’s most powerful and sophisticated expedition vessel.

AllThingsCruise, in partnership with Expedition Cruises, is offering an extraordinary journey to the North Pole on the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker “50 Years of Victory.” The Arctic adventure runs between July 23 and Aug. 06, 2010.

Travelers will depart Helsinki by charter flight to Murmansk, then voyage on the Barents Sea to the North Pole and the islands and archipelagos of the Russian Arctic aboard this nuclear-powered icebreaker with power, state-of-the-art technology and comfort all rolled into one.

“This North Pole Expedition Cruise is the ultimate travel experience,” said Heidi Allison-Shane, Publisher & Executive Editor of AllThingsCruise. Guests will be part of a memorable and incredible journey to the top of the world – the North Pole. Since its first North Pole icebreaker cruise in 2001, Expedition Cruises has been leading expeditions into the Russian Arctic on its chartered icebreakers and expedition cruise ships.

What’s it like on top of the World? Polar bears, arctic foxes, walruses and seals and snow owls are only a few of the species native to this wild, untamed land. A land so varied that it can be covered by ice so white it looks blue or with a carpet of mosses and lichens the colors of which would stir the imagination of even the most seasoned of artists. An expedition voyage to the Arctic or beyond is a sense-arousing, heart-opening experience that touches the very soul of all who have ever ventured into this unique domain where beauty, silence, and awe all intermingle to create an image so intense it brands itself into the mind forever.

The expedition includes two nights in a top Helsinki hotel before and after the cruise, group transfers between hotel and ship, an incredible voyage to the North Pole, all planned shore excursions and activities throughout the voyage by helicopters, and lectures and informal talks by experienced Expedition team and guest lecturers. A Russian Visa is required for this trip.
