I agree Bill - more likely to clear where ice is reliably thinner. With a 50m width broken it would leave a good size passage. Worrying trend though with the cruises... regular freight won't be far behind.
Surely all that's needed is a good bashing of the ice with something like the Baltika slicing a 50m wide swathe through the ice: http://gcaptain.com/video-worlds-first-oblique-icebreaker-breaks-ice-sideways/
I was amazed to see the trips to the North Pole this year - flights to Barneo (which in themselves I guess should be relatively low impact (apart from planes / tractors / ??? on the seabed)... or you could of course SMASH your way there in the nuclear powered icebreaker later in the season ! The adverts say you can go "Crushing through multiyear pack ice"... that should help speed up the icefree arctic.
