A Hat in Time Wiki
Mafia "Mafia look at little child. Mafia see loser."

The Arctic Cruise is a chapter in A Hat in Time, which requires the Seal the Deal DLC. It takes place on a cruise ship run by a walrus captain and his crew of white seals.

It can be found on Hat Kid's Spaceship in the laundry room, which is in basement before using the Hookshot Badge to enter Alpine Skyline.


Hat Kid and several of the other characters she has met on her adventures decide to take a vacation on the cruise ship the "SS Literally Can't Sink".


The cruise ship is divided into several rooms and decks.

Upper Deck[]

This area contains a large pool that one can freely swim in, a nice contrast to the freezing waters surrounding the boat. There is a single seal on Lifeguard duty, and several more just swimming. The owls complain its too cold, but the penguins seem to be okay with it. There's also a small bar where the Conductor can be found "relaxing."


A tall, multi-floor garden with tall trees and many unidentified plants. Not much goes on here, but it is a good room to use for gaining vertical height on the ship.

Port Wing[]

The leftmost side of the ship.


Reception Room[]

The main room of the ship where the two Receptionist seals can be talked to. There are usually a bunch of suitcases piled up so Hat Kid can reach the upper floors with ease. A lot of passengers are found here.


A gambling room full of what appear to be poker tables, slot machines, and wheel games. The only time Hat Kid gets to interact with the machines is within Act 1 for a Time Shard, as any attempt to get chips from the desk seal will prompt him to say she looks to young to gamble. This makes the 5,000,000 Pon reward on the board behind him extremely taunting.

Starboard Wing[]

The rightmost side of the ship.

Engine Room[]

A medium-sized room located through a door behind the reception desk. Electricity lines the floor, forcing Hat Kid to use the pistons as platforms if she wants to cross. On a small balcony above the room's exit, the Power Octopus can be found pumping electricity.

Laundry Room[]

A large, primarily bright room full of clothing piles, towels, baskets, and washing machines. Two metal racks constantly slide across the middle of the room, acting as hazards and platforms.


The cooking area of the ship, right at the edge of the dining room. From here Hat Kid can go down some stairs to enter the laundry room or just go back over the desk to get back to the dining room. There are plenty of chef seals (and a seal in a sink on break) to talk to, but Hat Kid has to be mindful of the ovens constantly spewing out dangerous fire.

Dining Room[]

An immaculate restaurant aboard the ship with large tables that slide back and forth, along with three chandeliers of varying heights that can be climbed on top of to reach one entrance of the Captain's Room.


A small daycare room where the Conductor's grandchildren can be seen during the first act of Arctic Cruise. There is a playpen, a slide, and a small jungle gym, as well as marine-based ceiling decorations. On the other side of the desk, there is a height sign that says "You must be this smol to enter."

Captain's Room[]

The control room of the ship. Here you can find the Captain along with a few seals.

As you first enter the ship by following the seals with signs, you will enter on this balcony to drop off of. There is a rift token one level up on the left side, so instead of dropping off, jump to the balconies on the left. Follow along that wall until you reach some wooden crates. Jump on the crates and with a wide outward jump, you should be able to reach the next level of platforms. Then, jump over and collect the rift token.

Rock The Boat[]

  • Rift Token: Make your way down to the reception desk through the Casino. It's hiding under the desk near a cardboard box.
  • Rift Token: In the same place, jump from the reception desk and land on a suitcase floating in the water, the token is on the next suitcase.
  • Rift Token: After rescuing the first four people, make your way to the next area. Climb on top of the ship where the glass dome is. On the other side is an iceberg, dive jump on to it.
  • Rift Token: Climb to the top of the ship once more, but head towards where the pool slide is. The token is on a lamp post.
  • Rift Token: After getting the captain to the lifeboat and having the Time Piece available, run around the back of the iceberg.

  • Hat Kid enters into the Laundry room through a machine called the Dirty Laundry Cleaner 3000. This is clearly a joke, as the acronym would be DLC.
  • This entire chapter seems to be a reference to the well-known disaster of the Titanic, a ship deemed unsinkable that in fact sunk.
  • Hat Kid actually belongs in the daycare, as measuring her against the small doorway reveals she actually can fit through without crawling, however she would need to take off her hat.
    • Granted, everyone on the White Seal Crew is also small enough, so she gets some leeway.
