Why we like the Rembrandt van Rijn

  • This ship offers the rare chance to sail in Arctic waters aboard a three-masted schooner built at the turn of the last century
  • This ship is likely to appeal to active travellers and avid sailors alike
  • Capable of carrying only 33 guests with a professional crew of 12, Arctic travel doesn’t get much more exclusive than this
  • The sailing experience is augmented by land-based excursions by the two onboard rubber zodiacs, accompanied by your expeditionary staff
