The Northwest Passage is open for cargo:

A large sea freighter completed a voyage through the hazardous Arctic Northwest Passage for the first time on Friday as global warming opens routes that mariners have wanted for centuries.

Last Voyage Of Henry HudsonThe quest for the Northwest Passage has been going on for centuries, and has even been immortalized in a TV series. Now, global warming has opened up the route. While smaller ships have managed the trip before, the Nordic Orion is the largest cargo ship to make it.

Henry Hudson would be pleased, if anyone knew where he was.
