If freezing your behind off is your idea of fun, and you think polar bears are sissies for wearing fur, an arctic cruise may be just the perfect cruise holiday for you. The sun burns down on you while you lie on the deck taking it all in... oh wait, that’s the Caribbean cruise. This arctic cruise is a cold one. It’s not for the faint of heart. Although, don’t be scared off; it’s not all that bad. If you live in the UK, you should be able to handle it.
So get yourself a great P&O cruise deal and you can be enjoying the awe inspiring Northern Lights from deck very ‘cool’.
Why an arctic cruise?
Good question! The answer is even better. The Arctic Circle has plenty on offer for those who love natural beauty. It’s a refreshing change from the typical tan cruise. You get to see spectacular scenery; spectacular as in “Northern Lights” spectacular. In fact, one arctic cruise offers a specific Northern Lights cruise. If ever you’ve seen pictures of the spectacular Aurora Borealis, one of nature’s most amazing occurrences, imagine what it must be like to see it in real life! Now THERE’s a home video waiting to happen. On the way to the Northern Lights, you sail along the beautiful Norwegian coastline, in itself nothing to sneeze at. Cross the Arctic Circle, past Svartisen Glacier. Ancient towns, the Polar Zoo, the Polar Museum and Wilderness Centre all form part of the package.
Or perhaps you’d like to visit the Arctic National Park, which lies deep in the heart of Alaska. It’s a pristine wilderness destination, the gates of which lie north of the Arctic Circle, in the Brooks Range. The park covers a staggering 8.4 million acres, making it the USA’s second largest national park. It is, however, one of the least visited parks in the USA, because of its remote location.
As with any good cruise liner, entertainment abounds on the ship. Dining is top class cuisine; entertainment includes theatres with great acts complimented by fantastic acoustics; entertainment includes pools & spas, sports such as swim-against-the-current pools, nine-hole putting courses, shuffleboard and even tennis. Some ships even include enrichment activities such as art exhibitions, area lectures and classes by experts from the region you’re visiting. And for those ladies wishing to look their best for the cruise, there’s a boutique featuring designer clothes and top line cosmetics.
For the kids, activities include a Fun Zone for the young ones, a teen centre, a playhouse and splash pool.
As cold as the word ‘arctic’ might sound, these cruises offer guests barrels of fun! Book one today and experience a different kind of cruise.
