Why we like the Greg Mortimer

  • Her unique X-BOW design isn’t only eye-catching, the practical benefits are a smoother ride for passengers and lower fuel consumption, which is good for us all
  • Even with a capacity for an average of 132 passengers the large, highly experienced expedition team of 15 - 18 people will deliver a very personalised experience for all on board
  • Choose from 5 well-appointed cabin categories, 80% of which have balconies, which is rare on polar ships
  • The combination of a small number of passengers and multiple zodiac loading decks means great chance of spontaneity and faster zodiac logistics
  • Optional kayaking is always popular, while this is one of only a few ships to also offer scuba diving and polar snorkelling

The first of this new generation of X-bow ships to arrive in the Arctic, make no mistake this is a groundbreaking ship setting the pace in the smaller ship category.
