Join us on a grand expedition cruise from the Arctic to Antarctica as we set sail on a true once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Join us on a grand expedition cruise from the Arctic to Antarctica as we set sail on a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your basecamp at sea will be the world’s first hybrid expedition cruise ship, the comfortable and stylish MS Roald Amundsen, named after the first explorer to successfully reach both the North and South Poles. 

From Pole to Pole on an epic expedition of discovery 

This expedition cruise will be unlike any other cruise you’ve been on. We’ll begin our 94-day journey in Vancouver, Canada, sailing north along the Alaskan coast and crossing the Arctic Circle as we make our way through the fabled Northwest Passage to Greenland and Baffin Island. 

We’ll then turn south along the eastern seaboard of the United States to the warm and colorful tropical lands of Central America before passing through the Panama Canal and reaching South America. Here, we’ll experience a mix of culture and nature, exploring ancient sites in Ecuador, Peru, and Chile before witnessing the ethereal splendor of the Chilean fjords and Patagonia and—finally—the pristine otherworldly beauty of Antarctica. 

Culture, nature, and discovery 

On this grand expedition cruise, you’ll experience the amazing blend of culture and wildlife within the Americas and Antarctica. Your knowledgeable and passionate onboard Expedition Team will guide and inspire you throughout, ensuring your cruise will be as adventurous, educational and ecologically sustainable as possible.
