Poseidon Expeditions has been named Best Polar Expedition Cruise Operator by the prestigious 2022 International Travel Awards. A jury of industry representatives and travelers voted in several rounds for the top prizes. The winners were announced on July 25, 2022. The International Travel Awards have been one of the most prestigious awards in the global travel industry in recent years, shortlisting companies that offer outstanding service and unique experiences.
“We are delighted that Poseidon Expeditions has once again won this prestigious international award. It confirms what our travelers say about us and why they come back to experience our brand of polar expedition cruising. Travel in these icy regions – with an emphasis on sustainability, best practices and preserving the wilderness ethos – will grow in popularity in the coming years, and Poseidon will continue to provide award-winning experiences, comfort and hospitality aboard our 114-passenger Sea Spirit. Helping our travelers discover new horizons in the high latitudes is what we do best,” said Steve Wellmeier, Director of Special Projects for Poseidon.
In addition to this award, Poseidon Expeditions was also named World’s Leading Polar Expedition Operator by the 2021 World Travel Awards. For more than 23 years, Poseidon Expeditions has been organizing exclusive expedition cruises to the most remote places on Earth: the Arctic and Antarctica. Each expedition is a unique and life-changing experience for travelers: seeing wildlife in its natural environments; visiting remote research stations or historic sites; enjoying a barbecue on deck while cruising among icebergs; experiencing a polar plunge; kayaking or camping in Antarctica; and experiencing the northern lights in East Greenland.
