Newly Renovated & Spacious

Following a $13 million refit in 2009 the MS Expedition boasts spacious cabins, each featuring ocean-view windows or portholes and private en-suite facilities. Its top-of-the-line cabins provide a variety of affordable twins, triples and quads, higher end twin cabins and luxurious suites.

A room with a view

Large common areas and observation decks provide superior views. 360 sightlines from the ship's upper decks offer sweeping panoramas, whilst the raised Canada Goose Observation deck provides a great vantage point from which to spot the unique wildlife. And, unlike many other ships, the MS Expedition also offers breathtaking views from its interior-its passengers can relax in the warmth and comfort of the dining room or lounge without being cut off from the remarkable environment.

Safety & Stability

Designed with your safety in mind the MS Expedition is fully equipped to meet the demands of cruising in polar regions. Its forward-looking sonar reduces the risk of grounding on uncharted reefs and its design and construction complies with Finnish-Swedish ICE Class 1 standards. The ship is equipped with new and regularly serviced lifeboats and life-rafts. Its four partially enclosed lifeboats provide capacity for all passengers and crew while six life rafts boast a capacity of 150 persons. In addition the MS Expedition has full cold weather immersion suits for all-designed to significantly increase the odds of survival in the event of immersion in freezing waters.

Photography Program

Each Expedition trip now comes with a resident photography expert on hand to help you capture the best possible photos on your trip. Our photographer will host lectures and workshops, and teach you all the tips and tricks to help you take better photos or brush up on your technique."

Passengers can bring their own laptop, sign out one of the two iPads on board, or use one of the two desktops. Your cell phone, for calling, will not work in Antarctica.
