M/S Expedition gets the best of both worlds: large enough to offer stability, spacious cabins and generous public areas, but small enough to manoeuvre easily and get you close to the action. With a maximum of only 132 guests and a high ratio of expedition staff to passengers. there's a relaxed, informal atmosphere on-board. The ship was fully refurbished in 2009 so you can expect modern features, fixtures and fittings throughout.
Photographer in Residence – New for the 2013/14 Season
Each of our polar vessels comes complete with a crew whose knowledge and experience make them top experts in their fields. For the 2013/14 season the M/S Expedition has added a 'Photographer in Residence' to their staff - a professional photographer who will help you make the most of the unique photography opportunities you'll have. There are workshops and one-to-one tuition available on all Arctic and Antarctica voyages, meaning you'll capture images that will truly make you the envy of all your friends!
