  • Destination: the Arctic

If you want to experience the Artic, this cruise and cruising is the best way. We went on the 'Land of the Ice Bear' aboard the Serenissima with Noble Caledonia July 2016

The cruise was amazing. Great bunch of passengers and the expedition team lead by Hannah Lawson were 1st class and a wonderful bunch. The crew, mainly Philippinos were equally as good. The service was second to none with nothing too much trouble. The actual itinerary worked well and apart from a couple of rough days at sea sailing to the ice cap, everything went according to plan. We were lucky that we saw a few Polar Bears ;equally the bird life and other wildlife was an amazing experience and the ship's crew always did their best to take us where there were sightings of wildlife.

NC supply passengers with thick jackets and insulated boots, which you will need as it is still very cold outside the ship even in summer.

I would not recommend this for young children or for people who are not interested in wildlife, however if you are, and enjoy learning about the wildlife, glaciers etc then this is for you.
