Why We Like This Ship

  • A true expedition vessel capable of accessing places larger ships simply can’t get to
  • Only 54 passengers makes it feel almost like chartering your own ship
  • A plucky little ship with a great atmosphere with a loyal fan base
  • Her functional lines and simple cabins evoke her origins as a research vessel
  • Renowned for her outstanding expeditionary staff and a very intimate overall experience
  • One of very few ships to offer scuba diving in Arctic waters, as well as kayaking

Onboard Communications

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

  • Telephone: $30/5mins or $150/45mins (satellite phone card)
  • Email service: $5 initial set-up fee and an approximate $3/min of sending/receiving emails. 5, 10, 40 minutes packages are available for purchase 

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.
