When is disembarkation?
Ending the expedition and leaving the ship often requires the completion of some formalities like Customs Inspection. It is our standard practice to being disembarkation after breakfast on board the ship on the final day of the itinerary. This is followed by a group transfer from the ship to the nearest airport. We recommend that homeward flights are booked to depart after 12:00 (noon).
The exception occures when a flight is required to transfer guests from the ship to a community with a major airport. In that case, guests disembark the second last day of the itinerary after breakfast. They are then transferred to the airport for their flight to the final staging point. When this is required, our prices include one night of hotel accommodation on the evening of the second last day of the itinerary.
Examples of itineraries that are exceptions:
- Arctic Passage
- Tanquary Fjord
- Ellesmere Island and Greenland
- North Pole
