Why We Like This Ship

  • One of the ​most​ elegant small luxury expeditionary ship's in Antarctica
  • Her wooden panelling and polished brass gives the feeling of a private yacht
  • She was purpose built in Italy for exactly this type of expeditionary cruising and is ice strengthened
  • Only 108 guests aboard ensures there's plenty of space and that everyone can go ashore together
  • ​State-of-the-art retractable stabilisers which reduce roll by 90% help ensure sea days are comfortable​
  • All of the suites are ​at least double the size of the average polar cabin. Some have French doors & balconies
  • Al fresco lunches can be enjoyed on the sun deck on sunny days, even in Antarctica 
  • A convenient stern platform makes getting in & out of the zodiacs quick and easy
