Quark Expeditions Announces 50 Years of Victory's Retirement and Final North Pole Voyages


We like to think we're on top of things here at World of Cruising and today we're on the top of the world!  Quark Expeditions announces the ship 50 Years of Victory will retire as an expedition vessel after the 2015 Arctic season. This 'End of an Era' will be marked by Quark with three final voyages to the North Pole departing in June 2015.

Quark is the first and only North American operator to offer trips to the North Pole aboard 50 Years of Victory. Only 128 lucky people will have the opportunity to join each of these three final voyages as Quark marks the 'End of an Era' for this incredible expedition vessel. 

To meet demand for the final year, Quark will add a third voyage at the start of the season. Departing on June 4, this first voyage will be 15 days in length, one day longer given the heavy ice conditions Victory will crush through in early season on its way to the top of the world. The other two departures, June 19 and June 30, will be 14-day voyages. Watch Quark's North Pole video, narrated by Gordon Pinsent. Quark is also the only tour operator to offer hot air ballooning at the top of the world.

Quark's North Pole expeditions start at £15,765 per person based on double occupancy.
