What merchandise is available?
We offer a variety of gifts, gear and souvenir to assist you in preparing for your Polar Expedition or as a keepsake from your previous voyage.
Will these products be available on my trip?
Some products featured on this site may be available in the Polar Boutiques onboard our ships. However due to international shipping as well as supply and demand some products may not be available onboard. Pricing may vary from the prices onboard due to international trade regulations and local import taxes.
I bought something onboard a ship. Can I return it to Quark?
Only merchandise purchased from the web-site online can be returned directly to Quark. Merchandise purchased onboard can only be returned or exchanged onboard during your voyage. For assistance with warranty or repair of electronics, please refer to the manufacturer details included in the packaging.
Can my online purchase be returned or exchanged onboard a ship?

Can my items be delivered to the ship?
Due to import regulations, orders cannot be delivered to the vessel at this time. We also do not recommend shipping to a hotel or other third party destination for collection prior to travel.
