If you have taken an Antarctica trip with us previously, you would have been on the M/V Ortelius. If you are signed up for our Antarctica 2023 trip, you will be going on the M/V Hondius.
It was built in 2019 and is the first ever registered Polar Class 6 vessel in the world. This means that you are getting the highest standards for ice-strengthened hulls for cruise ships. This surpasses the previous requirements set forth by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
This ship is the most flexible and advanced vessel to ever cruise the polar region. Moreover, it uses biodegradeable paints and lubricants, LED lighting, steam heating with the latest in power management systems to keep fuel consumption and carbon dioxide levels to a minimum.
This means that you are getting the best experience possible cruising Antarctica without leaving behind any major carbon footprint in the region.
