Sail past ice floes and icebergs while exploring the region’s wildlife and majestic polar landscapes. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch a glimpse of a polar bear! This trip is all about discovering the beauty of the Arctic and learning about the natural world with your family and friends.

As if that wasn’t, the July 10-19 expedition will be joined by Joe Rohde. During his illustrious career, he played a crucial role in the development of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Pandora: The World of Avatar, Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa, and so much more! Rohde won’t just be a passenger on this journey, though. He will be conducting sessions on field research and sharing his sketching strategies so guests can learn how to best capture their emotions during their own travels. Rohde will share stories from his career, including his passion for conservation and nature. Fun fact about Joe Rohde: did you know he led the charge in the creation of the Disney Conservation Fund?
