Why we like the Polarfront cruise ship

  • The only small ship in Svalbard offering true luxury and a high-end experience
  • Very generously proportioned suites for a ship of its size
  • Outdoor sauna and hot tub on the aft deck
  • Alcohol & soft drinks included on all departures
  • Almost all food is either organic or locally sourced
  • Very stable (former weather ship) making for comfortable sailing
  • Experienced captains with the highest ice navigation qualifications
