Our staff travels to the Arctic often and knows the ins and outs of cruising here. Our money-saving tips will help you find the lowest Arctic cruise price.
Arctic Cruise Prices Explained
The Arctic region is remote and requires ice-class ships and often longer cruise itineraries. Thus, costs are typically higher than many other expedition cruise locations worldwide. But the rewards are great.
The wide range of small expedition ships here have a variety of price points, that vary greatly even on the same ship. Some ships are more luxurious with spacious suite cabins and balconies. Others are simpler floating base camps offering a value for price-conscious travelers.
At the low end, you can expect to pay $3,500-$5,000 per person for an 8-day cruise on a simpler expedition ship. The sky’s the limit on the high end, with serious expeditions on luxury ships reaching more than 20 days and $64,000 in cost.
Some cruises offer an all-inclusive package with hotels, transfers and even flights. Others have a lower base rate by having a cruise-only price. Because of this, be sure to read the fine print if you’re researching on your own. Or simply contact us. Our experts can help you understand the nuances to find the best Arctic cruise deal.

Tips on Getting the Best Deal
Getting the best deal on an Arctic cruise is more than just looking at discounts. Of course you have to take in the whole equation of the trip’s starting price, its length and per-day costs, inclusions and exclusions, and other value-adds or exclusive loyalty discounts if you’re a past guest. All this said, here are a few tips if you’re seeking more affordable Arctic cruise prices:
- Choose a triple or quad cabin for the lowest per-person Arctic cruise prices.
- Cabins on the lowest deck with portholes are often the most affordable.
- You can sometimes find deeper discounts on early-season April Svalbard trips, but in general discounts aren’t as seasonal in the Arctic as other expedition cruise destinations.
- If you’re a solo traveler who wants your own cabin, look to Sea Spirit and Ultramarine, which have dedicated solo cabins that you don’t have to pay a single supplement for. We also often look to sister ships like Le Boreal and Le Lyrial for rotating “no single supplement” offers.
- Flights can be a big added expense, so for budget seekers, we recommend booking simpler itineraries that have the same embarkation and disembarkation points, e.g. Iceland cruises the embark/disembark in Reykjavik.
- Book early. This ensures you’ll have the best selection of ships, cabins and routes to best suit the experience you seek. You’ll often save with early-booking deals, plus you’ll be able to have time to research flight deals.

Last Minute Arctic Cruises
Last minute Arctic cruise discounts are sometimes available and appeal to travelers with flexibility in their schedule. Seasonal discounts can save money with lower prices offered in the early or late Arctic cruising season. And they’re certainly enticing for travelers seeking cheap Arctic cruises since this destination is not known for its affordability.
While it can be enticing to wait for these discounts, our best advice is to book early instead. This ensures you’ll have the best selection of ships, cabins and routes to best suit the experience you seek. Booking last minute Arctic cruise deals might save money in one area, but increased last-minute hotel and flight costs often make up for those savings. Not to mention your date, cabin and activity choices are restrained by what’s left, not what’s best for you.
