1968. One of the songs was "The Other Side", Partial lyrics:

The ice caps are melting, oh ho ho ho!
All the world is drowning, oh ho ho ho ho.
The ice caps are melting,
The tide is rushing in.
All the world is drowning,
To wash away the sin.

Not a luxury ship but it did that passage (and noted in the link) many years ago.

Next I'll hear more "firsts."

There is a sea passage through the Arctic regions of North America, that has been alluring explorers and fortune seekers for centuries. Connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Northwest Passage, that has claimed the curiosity, hearts and lives of so many, is now a journey into the past to discover the courage, misery and pure determination of some of history?s greatest explorers. By weaving your way through explorer over-wintering sites, ceremonial grounds, and ship graveyards this remarkable journey will bring to life the endeavors of those who came before us.

odd shark

The Arctic even houses the most northerly shark ? the Greenland shark. This ominous fellow lurks at the surface and grows up to 6.5 meters long, making him the largest of the dogfish. The shark?s fresh meat is poisonous; it smells like ammonia because this fish actually urinates through its flesh! That?s why the Inuits first dried the shark?s flesh before feeding it to their dogs. Never wasteful, they also used the shark?s liver for fuel oil.

Interesting, James. I didn't know that.
