The trip costs $20,000 to $150,000. For the money, you get a month crossing the world's final ocean frontier.

In 2016, 900 passengers will board a cruise liner named the Crystal Serenity for the largest expedition through the Northwest Passage, a sea route around the top of North America that has entranced and frustrated sailors for centuries.

"A lot of small expedition ships have now gone through the Northwest Passage and even some commercial ships," said Thomas Mazloum, executive vice president of Crystal Cruises, the operator planning the voyage.

"But we don't have 100 guests on board; we have 800 or 900. To do it with a ship like ours, we need to do it differently."
