Why We Like This Ship

  • ​Custom built for expedition cruising in 2010, these beautifully designed ships are a far cry from the other converted research ships
  • By combining high comfort with adventure​ ​they take the best aspects from both traditional cruising and small ship adventures ​
  • The first ships to introduce real comfort to Arctic cruising, but with a surprisingly affordable price tag​
  • ​Wide choice of some of the most exciting trips north of the Arctic Circle
  • Almost all cabins have their own private balcony,​ a feature traditionally only reserved for the highest cabin categories
