The price includes accommodation, meals, drinks, shore excursions, lectures, port charges, fees, gratuities, Wi-Fi and Zodiac cruises.

Mortimer said: “I can’t wait to bathe in that exquisite Arctic light once again. It’s been a while. This time it will be even more surreal, being on a ship with my own name on it.”

Chief executive Michael Heath said Mortimer was “an inspiration to all who travel with him”.

“His exploring and guiding expertise, gleaned over three decades, will be an enlightening experience and highlight many a little-known treasure, inlet, and wildlife experience for his fellow expeditioners,” he added.
