With the continued melting of Arctic sea ice and the further opening of the Arctic Ocean to maritime traffic, cruise ship tourism is the latest economic sector forecasted to experience a boom in the region over the coming years. Cruise ship operators around the world are adding to their existing fleets of ice-capable expedition cruise ships.

Notes

For centuries, the Northwest Passage represents the desire for faster trade routes. Global warming and the associated decline in sea ice are accelerating ambitions to use this sea route economically. In particular, the United States of America, however, sees the sea route through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago as an international maritime route and want to enforce this view.

Notes

Far in the Arctic North, halfway between Greenland and Canada, lies the barren and desolate Hans Island in the middle of the 22-mile wide Nares Strait. The uninhabited half-square-mile island, possessing no apparent natural resources, is a bizarre sliver of territory for two countries to fight over. Due to international law, all countries have the right to claim territory within 12 miles of their shore. Peter Takso Jensen, the Danish Ambassador to the US, has said that "when Danish military go there, they leave a bottle of schnapps. And when Canadian military forces come there, they leave a bottle of Canadian Club and a sign saying, 'Welcome to Canada.'"
