The 120 passenger MS Expedition is large enough to provide stability, speed, spacious cabins and ample public space, yet she is small enough to manoeuvre in remote areas and get you close to the action. Ship stabilizers ensure a smooth ride in rough waters allowing you to enjoy more of your time at sea. The cabins provide a variety of affordable doubles and triples, higher end double cabins and suites. All rooms provide outside cabins with views (window or porthole) and full private en-suite bathrooms. Amenities include the Polar Bear Pub, Expedition Lounge, Albatross Bar and a fine dining room serving international cuisine, large enough to accommodate all passengers in one sitting. There is also a barbecue deck, a top 360° view observation deck and a fitness centre and sauna. Enjoy a casual drink in the Polar Bear Pub with direct access to the back deck, relax with a book and glass of wine in the Expedition Lounge, or spend your days on the observation deck enjoying fantastic scenery and keeping your eyes peeled for passing wildlife. The Expedition Lounge is equipped with state of the art audio visual equipment, including multiple screens and will host the lectures, evening films and pre landing briefings and recaps. The expedition team includes experts in marine and avian biology, history and geology. Together they represent a vast depth in knowledge and experience that will enrich your travels in unforgettable ways. Through a lecture programme and shore expeditions, they will share their knowledge and passion with you, to enhance your experience. A fleet of Zodiacs are used for landings and nature cruises, and an open bridge policy onboard allows interaction with the captain and navigation crew, further fostering the expeditionary nature of every voyage.
