Why We Like This Ship

  • Fully rebuild from the hull upwards in 2009, The Plancius is fully customised for comfortable expeditionary travel in the Polar Regions
  • Modern styling and good design lend this vessel a contemporary feel and plenty of space for everyone onboard
  • One of the best 3* options available - she combines comfort and value for money, without compromising on the overall experience
  • The Plancius’ diesel-electric propulsion system means she’s a very quiet vessel, making overnight sailing very comfortable
  • A fantastic observation lounge overlooking the bows with panoramic windows, ideal for wildlife sightings and enjoying the passing scenery while staying warm

Onboard Communication

If whilst in the Arctic you wish to stay in touch, there are a number of options to choose from:

  • Full Internet access*: EUR15/20mb, EUR30/50mb, EUR60/100mb
  • Telephone card: EUR15/20 minutes
  • Ship-based email: EUR15 for a 7-10 day trip; EUR20 for a 10-12 day trip; EUR25 for a 18 day trip; EUR50 for a 30 day trip; 

Due to the remoteness of the location, the options available are only suitable for light data traffic, meaning that internet access or the uploading of images is not possible. Email access, however, is still available. 

Aboard Plancius, you benefit from full Internet access, which is subject to satellite connection signal (expect a much slower connection than at home, some pages can sometimes load for minutes).
