Poseidon Expeditions - your polar cruise operator

What are the major expenses not included in programme rates?

Air flights to the starting/finishing points of our cruises are not included. We do arrange flights for travelers seeking comprehensive planning.

All passengers must have comprehensive travel insurance coverage with a minimum EURO 100,000 (North Pole), $200,000 (Antarctica) and $150,000 (Arctic) emergency medical coverage. The insurance IS included in the North Pole travel package and is NOT included in the Arctic and the Antarctica travel package. See for more information here.

Some passengers need to purchase additional outdoor clothing in advance of the trip. This is an essential part of the planning process. We include the official Poseidon Expeditions parka in the cost of your expedition (please check at the time of booking) and provide water-proof boots as needed. Please be sure to review the packing list provided to you by our staff and adhere to the guidelines.

If you are pleased with the crew’s service, gratuities / ‘tips’ can be made in cash or charged to your on-board account and are ALWAYS at your discretion. We recommend that you budget 20 USD per person, per day on Antarctic and Arctic cruises and 24 USD per person, per day on North Pole. Gratuities are collected anonymously AT THE END of each voyage and are distributed among staff and crew at that time.
