First time Polar travellers typically over pack, as there is always some concern over what to actually pack for an Arctic or Antarctica cruise. You may have some gear already, especially if you ski or snowboard, however today’s lightweight, high-tech fibers make layering less bulky, whereas some older gear may be more bulky and less effective at retaining warmth and creating the essential barrier against the cold polar temperatures.
Scenic will provide all guests a wind-proof, waterproof, complimentary hooded parka especially designed for Polar cruises when you board Scenic Eclipse. This is yours to keep as a memento of your Polar experience. We will also provide complimentary use of Polar boots for the cruise duration. No other boots, including hiking boots, will be needed for going ashore.
