Will I get to see the Northern Lights?

While the name of our songwriters cruise is called "the Northern Lights Cruise” - we make the disclaimer right here that in no way do we claim you will see any northern lights on this voyage. Trust us, there is so much that will make this a special cruise you will not miss the Northern Lights. That said, if the main thing you are looking for are the Northern Lights, then this cruise is probably not for you.
