ABOUT THE SHIP

dots-start-dots-row-1

The 50 Years of Victory is a truly unique vessel in that she is the world’s largest, most technically sophisticated, and most powerful icebreaker. As a passenger vessel she is comfortable and offers excellent European cuisine, a gym, a pool and two saunas. Due to her incredible power she can move through sea ice at a speed of 12 knots - an incredible feat. During the winter months (when not used as a passenger vessel), she is used as an icebreaker for cargo vessels through the North East Passage.

WHY WE LIKE HER

  • HELICOPTERS

    Victory sports a helicopter, which gives passengers the unique advantage of viewing the polar landscape and the ship crashing through ice from an aerial perspective. It also means passengers can occasionally visit inland areas of Franz Josef Land (en route to the North Pole) that would otherwise be inaccessible. 

  • POWER

    Two nuclear reactors, three propellers (each with 7-ton blades), 75,000 horsepower combined with thick steel plates designed in a shape specifically for breaking through ice means she is unmatched the world over.

  • LOCATION

    No other passenger ship can get you to the North Pole, which makes her super unique as well as in demand. Spaces are often sold out a year in advance.
