Why we like the 50 Years of Victory cruise ship
- The most powerful nuclear icebreaker in the world, ‘The Victory’ easily breaks a path through ice over 2.5 meters (8 feet) thick at a speed of 12 knots
- Helicopter flightseeing provides an amazing bird's-eye-view of the ship in action amongst the ice and of the sheer vastness of the polar scenery
- Her open bow area allows passengers to experience the ship’s raw power close up as thick ice is splintered and push aside by her wake
- Attaining The North Pole is celebrated with a walk through all the meridians, a BBQ on the ice, and an optional polar plunge for the hardy
- The delicious food onboard is carefully prepared by European chefs and is accompanied by a decent wine list
