Why we like the Greg Mortimer

  • The first expedition ship to pioneer the groundbreaking X-BOW technology, it will pierce waves making for a smoother overall voyage
  • We love the fact that in spite of being crammed with technology, this small ship only carries a maximum of 120 passengers, ensuring everyone can land together
  • 80% of the cabins benefit from having outer balconies and all are spaciously proportioned, ranging from 180 - 385 square feet
  • A panoramic observation deck with floor to ceiling windows and spacious outer decks means you’ll never miss out on the action wherever you are on the ship
  • For active travellers, optional activities are available: kayaking, camping, snowshoeing, scuba diving & polar snorkelling

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

The service from Swoop was great. You were open with us and explained how this particular cruise would work. After talking to others on the cruise, we felt we were better informed about the details. Read the full review

The entire ship's staff was AMAZING. Peter (snorkel), Edwin (snorkel), and Jared (photography) stood out above all, but the entire staff was so friendly and helpful. Read the full review

Andrea Ehrhardt United States Of America February 2020

I love zodiacs so I was very happy we had them. The icebergs, especially the black icebergs were remarkable in every way. The wildlife was good, especially the Humpbacks, Minke and the Chinstraps. Read the full review

I'm thrilled that I booked with Swoop. They gave me lots of information on the ship. During the trip, I was surprised at how skilled the crew was to adapt to new contingency plans due to changing weather. Read the full review
