Regent Seven Seas Cruises has cancelled a cruise from Anchorage, Alaska to Montreal through the North-west Passage in July 2017, on which I was booked as a Smithsonian Speaker, on meteorological advice. We are obviously disappointed at the decision, because this would have been a wonderful adventure for Sue and I, but we are sure RSCC was wise to act on the advice they had. We wait to hear whether the might rescheduling the cruise rather later in the year in 2018.
Meantime, we have been booked instead for a more leisurely passage around North America, from San Francisco to Miami, then Miami to Montreal, and will follow this with a trip to Greenland and Reykjavik. Full details are on my cruise bookings page here.
