Poseidon Expeditions is one of the leading providers of polar expeditions in the cruise industry. Founded in 1999, the company is a recognized leader in icebreaker cruises to the North Pole and the Russian High Arctic.
With the 114-passenger Sea Spirit, Poseidon expanded its offerings in 2013 to include deluxe expedition cruises to Antarctica, and to the Arctic destinations of Svalbard, Greenland, Franz Josef Land and Iceland in 2015.
Poseidon Expeditions’ goal is to provide curious, discerning travellers with the perfect combination of comfort and personable service, balanced with maximum opportunities for outdoor activities in the spirit of adventure.
Using a fleet of Zodiac landing craft, passengers are guided ashore by an exceptional team of expedition guides and educators to observe up-close the spectacular wildlife and landscapes.
“Unique” and “one-of-a-kind” are words bandied about in the cruise industry, but rarely do the voyages or the ships they’re associated with live up to these superlatives. Here’s one that does: a North Pole expedition aboard 50 Years of Victory, a nuclear-powered icebreaker that takes you to a spot inaccessible to all other commercial passenger vessels.
But only one vessel can deliver you to 90º North, the geographic top of the world. On your cruise to the North Pole, watch in amazement from high above the surface as your vessel’s twin nuclear reactors generate 75,000 horsepower, powering the vessel to crush Arctic sea ice as thick as three meters
On North Pole expeditions, Poseidon takes passengers aloft in helicopters for photo opportunities and a rare perspective of the nuclear-powered icebreaker making its way through the frozen Arctic Ocean to the top of the world.
