ABOUT THE SHIP

dots-start-dots-row-1

The Expedition was carefully selected and purpose-retrofit in 2009 by the current owners for comfortable polar expeditioning at a reasonable price. She has one of the most spacious interiors of all polar expedition ships within her price range and has other great features that only a company with a keen grasp on what makes an expedition experience outstanding would have thought to include (like a mud room).

  • Crew: 55 plus Expedition staff
  • 360° Top Observation Deck
  • Large fleet of Zodiacs with four stroke engines
  • Complimentary rubber boots for duration of your cruise
  • Lonely Planet Library
  • Large aft deck with barbeque facilities
  • Gift Shop
  • Gym
  • Forward-looking sonar to avoid chance of grounding
  • Ice Class: Swedish/Finnish 1B
  • Cruising Speed: 13 knots

WHY WE LIKE HER

  • THOUGHTFUL TOUCHES

    Large heated mudroom – we cannot emphasize how great of a feature this is – and how uncommon it is on other ships. Imagine dumping all of your wet gear upon return to the ship after an excursion and heading to the lounge for a hot chocolate. Not to mention, there’s a sauna to sit in after a chilly outing or polar plunge. 

  • STABILITY

    Former Swedish ferry - she was originally designed for stability and due to her Ice Class B, she is ideal for navigating the waters of the polar regions safely and comfortably.

  • SPACIOUS

    Spacious – lots of room in public areas and nooks to sit privately with a book, as well as unusually spacious cabins for her class, all with en suite facilities.

  • OWNER OPERATED

    Owner operated – you can be sure she is extremely well taken care of.

Everything you need to know about traveling to Antarctica. Including what time of the season is best for what you’re most keen to see.

ARCTIC

Everything you need to know about traveling to the Arctic. Which is a bit like our proverbial backyard/second home (because we’ve lived there).

WHAT TO BRING

Everything you need to know about what to bring on your trip. Including unusual stuff like why you might want goggles in Antarctica, or extra batteries in Svalbard.
