Default North Pole Cruise?

I just saw on the CBS Morning show that vacation travel is increasing dramatically to the North Pole and the population is getting bigger. They are suppose to have a special on the CBS evening news about it. I can see it now..Carnival Icebreaker first to crluise to North Pole. Oh welll..at least Santa may have a way of getting those toys out in case his sled can't make it..>G<

Hmmm, living in NH I see more snow and ice than I want. I haven't even considered Alaska for that reason. The North Pole?? Uh Uh, I think not thank you. Give me warm, tropical isles and a few frou frou drinks with little umbrellas!!!! <BG>

There are many cruises that cruise the Northwest Passage and some go all the way to the North Pole. If interested, you can check with Quark Expeditions. Most of the trips are on old Soviet icebreakers. Also check out Linblad, Abercrombie and Kent, and the other expedition companies.

I have been looking for a cruise that is a complete circumnavigation of North America. Unfortunately, it doesn't make much sense for an icebreaker to do the rest of the trip. Of course, you could take an icebreaker from Barrow to Resolute and then take a traditional ship the rest of the way if someone would schedule one.

Just come up here to Northern Michigan in January and you can pretend you're at the North Pole - cheaper too!

BJ, I have a girl friend who is taking an ice breaker to Greenland and Iceland next month, her husband is staying home! !!!! I bet if she can she'll be doing that because she has been talking of doing antartic. Whatever turns you on!! For me, I'll stick to the warmer climates, except for Alsaka in the summer time.
