Secret Atlas Micro Cruises to Arctic Svalbard

#expeditioncruising .

Secret Atlas’s expedition micro cruises to Svalbard for just 12 guests offer a lower-impact alternative to the increasingly large cruise ships which are now visiting the polar regions. With the launch of its 2023 sailing schedule to the Norwegian archipelago situated in the Arctic Circle, the specialist tour operator is offering travellers a range of departure dates and itineraries onboard its small ships. And, with accommodation for just a dozen guests plus crew, a much richer, more personalised experience is possible than can be enjoyed on large cruise vessels.

NZ's Strannik Ocean Voyages selling fast

#expeditioncruising .

Rodney Russ, owner and founder of Strannik Ocean Voyages writes:

"We have one twin-share cabin and one male berth* available on this departure.  To see and experience all of Fiordland’s fiords is a trip of a lifetime. There are 14 fiords, but one of them, Sutherland Sound, is only accessible by Zodiac, the remaining 13 create one of the greatest cruising grounds in the world.  It is wrong to think that just because they are all fiords they are all the same; every one of them is unique and different with their own story.  We invite you to experience and enjoy these 13 fiords. "
