How to dress for the polar regions

Pack and dress for your best voyage! North Pole, Arctic and Antarctic cruises are waiting for you!

Whenever you go to the polar regions, you can expect a variety of weather conditions such as rain, wind, snow, and sunshine (even at midnight). Our recommendation is to bring “polar quality” clothes that will fit into a layered clothing scheme. For example, packing lightweight long-sleeve t-shirts, turtlenecks, and a water-proof shell is better than packing five big, cotton sweaters and two huge “winter-down” coats. Keep in mind that you may experience anything from t-shirt weather to sub-zero snow-squalls. Each day’s temperature might change quickly without any time for you to change your clothes – so layers are essential.
