50 Years of Victory at the North Pole - Poseidon ExpeditionsAfter 2015, there will be no more nuclear icebreaker trips to the North Pole so passengers wanting to visit the North Pole are urged to book now or miss the boat entirely. Northern polar trips in future will concentrate on the Northwest Passage across the top of Canada and the Northern Sea Route above Russia. Between Quark Expeditions and Poseidon Expeditions there will be a record total of six departures for the North Pole in 2015. Elsewhere, Royal Caribbean International scored a coup last week by engaging British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to install the first “Jamie’s Italian” restaurants at sea on board the first two “Quantum” class ships, debuting this year and next. Finally, in view of last week’s Guinness Book of World Records christening of eighteen Viking Cruises river cruisers in a single week, we remember the introduction into the English language of the “Hagenism,” named for Viking CEO Torstein Hagen, by the US edition of Travel Weekly a year ago.
