Fares start at $7,999 and the second traveler in a cabin sails free.
'As this is the first season for World Traveller, explorers have the opportunity to experience this remote region in comfort and at very appealing introductory fares,' said James Rodriguez, the line’s president and CEO.
Daily Zodiac outings
Depending on the itinerary, plans call for up to two Zodiac outings daily to see wildlife and ice formations up close. Landing sites are based on weather and wildlife sightings and will be determined by the expedition leader in consultation with the captain.
Two expeditions sail round-trip from Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost port, on Aug. 6 (13 nights) and Aug. 19 (11 nights). An eight-night expedition on Aug. 11 sails from Tromsø, Norway, to the Svalbard archipelago. A 10-night expedition, Aug. 30, takes the ship from Spitsbergen to Iceland.
World Traveller will then circumnavigate Iceland in nine nights, round-trip from Reykjavik, Sept. 9, before heading south Sept. 18 on an eight-night expedition to Edinburgh via the British Isles.
An expedition team comprised of naturalists, biologists, ornithologists and scientists from other disciplines will be aboard to share insights and enrich the journey. With one field guide for every 20 people, passengers are promised a highly personalized experience.
