Insignia just finished exploring the Norwegian Fjords and even ventured as far north as the Polar Ice Barrier, the nearly vertical seaward edge of the ice cap at the North Pole. Beautiful and fascinating photos were the result. Above and below you see the fjords and glaciers of Magdalene Bay and the town of Spitzbergen.

As Insignia cruised ever closer to the North Pole, the temperature became quite chilly. Crewmen were lowered into the icy waters in a tiny boat, so they could collect ice to serve in Insignia’s cocktails! It’s an age-old tradition and certainly demonstrates the commitment of our crew.

A successful voyage and a safe return to Insignia. Cheers!
