Journey to the ends of the earth in confidence and style aboard all-balcony 'Le Boreal'
An A&K voyage to Antarctica and the Arctic offers an opportunity to experience the world's most pristine regions at their very best, all from aboard the comfortable and sophisticated 'Le Boreal.' Whether plying the Southern or Arctic oceans, expect luxurious, all-balcony staterooms and suites on a commanding expedition cruiser helmed by the unequivocal experts at A&K.
On other cruises to different destinations, she carries more than 264 passengers; on voyages with A&K, we limit her capacity to just 199 guests. Fewer passengers in turn allows for more shore excursions each day and cabins with private balconies for every guest.
