THE ARCTIC CROSSING CRUISE

Recommended Posts

We have booked this cruise from Amsterdam to Boston in Sept 2020.  Ports of call in Greenland and Iceland.

 

What is the likelihood of getting a look at the northern lights?   I think that would be a high point if it happened.

We saw the Northern Lights off the coast of Iceland when we did this TA several years ago. They were spectacular and the highlight of that trip. Whether or not you will see them will depend on solar activity and local weather conditions. Good luck!

That would be awesome! We had friends show did a land vacation in the second week of September this year, and they had auroras.  I'm hoping we have a view!

We saw the Northern Lights on Vision of the Seas the night we left Akureyri (8/31/2017) ... as we were crossing the Arctic Circle.

I was on the transatlantic this year that was Denmark-Boston.  The night we left Reykjavík we were on deck at 11 pm and saw them.  Also, saw them another night. Have a wonderful trip, the sights are amazing!
