Why We Like This Ship

  • With only 48 people on board, The Shokalskiy embodies the true spirit of expedition cruising and travels to incredibly remote areas
  • A legendary ice-strengthened ship, she is renowned as much for her popularity amongst past travellers as for her manoeuvrability
  • Explore some of Antarctica's least travelled places accompanied by an expeditionary staff or world renowned specialists
  • Typically attracts an international clientele of fellow adventurous travellers, making for stimulating conversations at meal times
