MIAMI -- Celebrity's upcoming offerings in the Arctic and Antarctic -- part of the cruise line's continued rollout of exotic vacation options under its Xpeditions umbrella -- will be 12- and 13-day icebreaker voyages.

The High Arctic trips jump off from Ottawa, Canada, on Aug. 11 and Sept. 3, and stops include Resolute, Lancaster Sound, Coburg Island, Ellesmere Island, and Beechy Island, Canada; and Cape York and various points in northern Greenland.

On the opposite pole, 12-day trips depart roundtrip from Ushuaia, Argentina, on Oct. 25 and Nov. 5 and spend five full days in the Antarctic Sound and Peninsula. Other calls on the Antarctic trip include Elephant Island, the South Shetland Islands, Livingstone Island and Cape Horn. Celebrity will charter the 112-passenger Kapitan Khlebnikov, a polar-class icebreaker, from Quark Expeditions for the cruises.

Prices begin at $9,000 for the High Arctic cruises and $8,500 for the Xpeditions-Antarctic voyages; fares include alcoholic beverages, gratuities and shore excursions.

For details, call (866) XPDTION.
